Modern art adds a focal point and conversational interest.
Art in any style is a welcome enhancement to a home. In addition to adding beauty, a piece of modern art can create drama, interest and emotion in a room. The colors, shapes, brushstrokes and composition evoke a feeling, with their movement, energy and form.
Often people add art as the finishing touch to a room. Another very effective design strategy is to start and color around it.
Modern art can be created in any medium, in most any size and shape. It can be calming or energizing, monochromatic or brimming with color.
When we think about art for our homes, we tend to think about wall art – flat art painted with watercolors, oil paint or acrylics, and most often we hang art on a wall above the sofa or fireplace. There’s so much more to modern art, including sculpture, collage, found objects, ceramics, and glass.
The most prominent piece of modern art in a room can be something we don’t even think of as art – such as a sculptural chair, a dramatic rug, a striking chandelier or an unusual coffee table.
Focus your rooms with a piece of modern art this season. It will reflect your personality and pull a room together beautifully.
