Choosing Your Own Aesthetic Decor
Not only does art mimic life – it can do much more if treated with due respect. Aesthetic decor and artwork is a visual spice for gracefully adorned interiors, and it can bring out the finest features of different elements if chosen with care and taste. If you want to enrich your living area with art while not going overboard with color or pattern, here are a few tips to help you pick the right pieces to display in your home.
1. The power of artistic repetition
To boost the impact of interior design, turn to artwork that complements colors and patterns of the décor. Black-and-white graphic art will blend in seamlessly in a room structured around the two contrasting tones, and it will also accentuate visual harmony of black-and-white upholstery, zebra-striped pillows, and two-tone flooring.
For peak aesthetic decor effects, select furnishings and accessories that mimic the linear structure of showcased artwork: this will further amplify the sense of unity of your art collection and room style.
2. Aligned for aesthetic splendor
Color and pattern are important when dressing up your space with art, but placement is no less vital if you’re looking to achieve a well-rounded home look. By grouping artistic elements and furnishings similar in terms of design and color, you will instantly define a focal point in the room and transform your living area into a visual masterpiece in its own right. You can use this trick when looking to organize open-plan rooms into different visual wholes, for as long as you don’t overdo the color palette with one too many bright hues.
3. Fine art collection multiplying
Don’t be afraid to mix and match multiple art elements in your home: artwork created by the same artist or elements similar in terms of technique will increase visual interest in the room while preserving aesthetic balance and stylistic cohesion.
A few paintings placed together on a vacant wall will function as the room centerpiece and naturally draw attention away from the rest of the décor. Combining various forms of artwork is a clever design tool for transplanting color and pattern across the room, and you can also use it to achieve and emphasize stylistic harmony throughout your home.
4. Making color scheme work for you
Many homeowners are wary of experiments with contrasting hues and often opt for tone-on-tone patterns to avoid a haphazard visual impression. Still, a monochromatic or two-tone décor will quickly slide from chic to tedious, and once it does, it’s time to turn to bold pops of color to break up the visual uniformity.
Artwork in daring color combinations will increase interest in minimalist interiors and enrich ambiance with a playful, artistic note. Deep red, violet, royal blue, and burnt orange all make strong accent hues, so if your living area is looking a bit duller for wear, pick an avant-garde painting to introduce a fresh summer breeze and contrast in the room.
5. An artistic reflection of sophistication
If you don’t feel like experimenting with multiple pieces of art for fear of garish visuals in your home, you can turn to mirrors and high-polished surfaces and let the power of reflection do the magical aesthetic trick for you. Oversized mirrors placed along blank walls or ceiling will produce a sense of aesthetic repetition and drastically increase the interest in the room without the need for any additional artistic updates.
You can achieve the same visual effect by selecting purpose-built internal doors with a highly reflective finish – and if you want to dress your home in a cloak of visual illusion, you can also add full-size mirrors to your sliding doors and conceal entryways while boosting the room’s aesthetic value at the same time.
All art and aesthetic decor is not created equal, so be very careful when selecting visual elements to liven up a plain décor. Keep an eye out on lines, colors, and contrasts, play around with pattern, and most of all, make sure your home reflects your personality and artistic taste. Good luck!
