Art work makes for a great addition to any room in your home. You will never regret buying a painting when designing the interior. Paintings tend to last you a lifetime if preserved well and they also add an elegant touch without costing a fortune. However, choosing paintings without considering the other décor elements in your home is a mistake that will ruin the look of your house.
Colour Scheme – The Epicentre of Home Décor
When it comes to home décor, the colour scheme is essentially the most important factor. All your décor decisions must revolve around the scheme. For instance, if you have a vibrant mix of colours as your wallpaper for the living room and you choose a painting that is equally bright and colourful, the overall look will be confusing instead of appealing. The beauty of the painting will be lost in the perplexing blend of bright colours in the background and foreground.
How to Find a Complementary Painting?
Finding paintings that complement your house’s colour scheme is not as big a dilemma as you may be imagining it to be. All you have to do is keep a few tips in mind when you go to purchase paintings for your home and you will be good to go!
Create a Contrast
If the walls of a room in your home are dark then hanging paintings with lighter backgrounds will be a better decision. This will accentuate the beauty of the art without taking away the thunder of the walls.
In the same manner, if the walls are of a lighter shade then a painting that showcases an energetic amalgam of hues will bring out the beauty of the wall and painting.
The colour scheme of your walls will give you an idea about the type of colour palette the paintings should be and significantly narrow your search down. Not only will you cut down on the time you will need to get the right paintings, you will be able to avoid major faux pas.
Start with a Right Theme
As it all depends on the colour scheme, be sure to choose it wisely. The scheme should include colours you like – the ones that speak to you and make you feel positive and energetic. When you use the colour palette to choose the type of paintings you will get for your home, the paintings will emanate the same effect and improve the positive energy of your home.
However, following your wall colour does not mean that you cannot experiment with the paintings and artwork.
