Artwork has the power to facilitate change. Most importantly, in our minds, spirits and hearts. But today, we’re going stay in the more shallow end of the pool. :-) Let’s have some art + design fun and take a look at a beautifully designed room and see how just changing up the artwork can transform the way the room feels.
For our first go ’round, we’ll start with a fairly classic, neutral room:
Look #1: In keeping with the classic, slightly beachy style of the room, we’ll add an oceanscape by Tennessee artist Christina Baker.
The shift from mirror to artwork, in this case, is subtle, but what an impact! Makes for a much more interesting room, yes? Even the pup seems more pleased!
Look #2: Though the space is gorgeous, it could use a well-placed pop of color! So let’s see what a Michelle Armas abstract does for it..
The lovely colors and lively brushstrokes really bring the space into a shinier, happier territory, don’t they?
Look #3: The best way to help elevate a traditional room into something with a bit more personality? A graphic and quirky piece by Sarah Ashley Longshore from her Audrey Hepburn series.
This look works because what’s more classic than Audrey Hepburn? That’s right, nothing. So her iconic image keeps with the traditional vibe, but the bright colors and pop-style of the painting add a punch of the unexpected.
Hope you enjoyed our little peek at how varying styles of art can change a room’s personality! What’s your home’s art-style? Do you change things up or keep your favorites up ’round the clock?
