There’s really no question whether one ought to have art in ones home. For no home is really complete without some form of artwork, whether it be childrens drawings on the refrigerator, favourite photographs, magazine pullouts, art prints ordered online, favourite quotations printed off the internet, or anything else visual that brings us pleasure to see.
Prices range from usd$20 for Marc Allante’s minotaur head print ‘Philosopher’ or usd$22 for the rabbits tea party (Rabbit Chat) print on Etsy.com to a few hundred USD for original prints from Nanami Cowdroy or other original artists online.
NOTE : Art can be chosen based on your personal preference or themed around your interior style. If your interior style is Black & White then you’ll have to stick with monochromes, and Minimalist style will likely demand a single feature artwork or some well chosen and carefully arranged feature pieces. Glamourous style, Bohemian style and Romantic style invite as much art work as you like!
If you’ve never purchased art before, start by finding images that you like, whether in magazines, your own photos, or just online. It doesn’t have to be expensive and it’s for decoration – not investment – so see what suits your taste and go with that. Art is lovely when framed well or featured nicely, even if it’s in a creative way like being pegged up or put into a jar. The important thing is that it’s displayed well, because it adds warmth to a house that is missing without it.
