3 Reasons To Break All The Art Rules
Power clashing, anyone?
One of the fastest ways to spruce up your place in the new year is by adding some fresh new art to the walls. But, figuring out where to start can be quite the conundrum. Do you go with bigger is better? Make sure it all matches? Play it safe?
Well, luckily we tapped Art.com’s in-house design expert Linda Crisolo to light the way. The takeaway? It's time to break all the rules in 2017. From power clashing to forgoing neutrals — ready for a new year, new home? Right this way.
Tip 1: Power clash! Freely choose the art you love and without worrying if it goes together. Then frame it all with the same frame and mat. Frames, like this chelsea white frame here will unify art that doesn’t match.
Tip 2: Just because you are working with a small space, doesn’t mean your art can’t make a big statement. An oversized photograph like this one, called Umbrella Pattern On Beach, will serve as a conversation piece for whenever you host people in your home.
Tip 3: Neutrals always work, but they can also be a little too safe. Re-energize a room full of neutral décor with a playful pop of bright color, like these fun cactus prints from Art.com.
