You do not have to be art schooled to turn your living room into something futuristically cool. All you really need is the deed to the following golden rules, which are in fact, ideas hacked from artsy interior designers caught-in-the-act:
With Hocus Pocus To a Room with Focus
When you enter a room, there is always that one thing that catches your eye first, whether you like it or not. The delicate sixth sense for aesthetic preference of skilful interior designers has picked up on this long time ago. The magical power of colours as vivid as Mother Nature herself, gives us the thrill, in a bewildered sort of way, when we are three, but also when we are thirty-three. This is how the beyond appealing power of colourful prints has come into play. The warm, yet well-armed showy colours that intertwine in a way that begs for human emotion, make the perfect display that triggers instant attraction. In addition, it has been proven that colours can affect your mood and although this is a rather individual thing, there are certain colours you might want to choose as predominant ones in your colourful prints, if you feel like enlivening your space with tones of happiness.
Artistic Relation Creates Perfection
Sometimes, it’s not about the focus, but the inability to choose on what to focus. This can be achieved only by arranging similar pieces of art prints, close to one another, for example in the shape of a square. They all need to be from the same artists, representing same theme, from the same inspirational spectrum. For instance, you cannot arrange 4 prints from one artist if each one relates to different topic. To attain perfection with this method, you can pick still life as your sidekick painting genre and you will be sure to find an endless array of differently coloured and positioned fruits, flowers and vegetables, all from one artist, compatible in every single way, yet far from being all the same.
A Thoughtful Mix Can do the Trick
“To be beautiful, a room must contain the element of contrast – in forms as well as in colours and textures.” – Michael Taylor, The Finest Rooms. If you decide to intrigue by creating a unique display of contrast, keep in mind that once you choose your contrasting field, the rest of the elements must blend in harmony. For instance, if you decide to create contrast in the form, the colours must remain within the same colour frame. Aligning four to six smaller art prints that have different forms, similar colours and frames made from the same material is a great example of a thoughtful mix.
