Decorating with Art Can Be Exciting

January 11, 2018

Decorating can be one of the most exciting times during your experience as a homeowner. Not only are you creating the essence of your home, you are also adding your very own personal touch and style.

Unique art work is one of the easiest ways to add unique spice to an ordinarily drab room. "Many of my clients are simply amazed at how effective a colorful painting can be at bringing new life to a room that has become tired," says artist, Matthew Johnston.

However, as easy as it sounds, purchasing and hanging a painting on the center of the wall isn't going to cut it in most cases.

For family rooms, living rooms and rooms off the kitchen, it is recommended to use figurative diptych paintings to create a story within each area. Diptych paintings consists of two separate panels that hang together and work as one.

For stairways, long hallways and between windows, try using a tall, narrow painting! This style of painting also works well because they are bright and don't require ideal lighting.

Spaces like the area over a fireplace will get a lot of attention from passersby so hanging your prized piece is the perfect step for these spots.

Many customers choose large floral paintings. "Oftentimes, they will hang these on a wall which faces the front door ... to make an impression when first walking into the home," explains Johnson.
