When it comes to artwork it’s best to go with what you love and what will suit your style. If you love the colours and the size of the artwork you are thinking of purchasing then in most cases it will work in with your homes interior.
So when it comes to buying artwork my advice would be to buy what you love. After all, it is your home and you are the one who is going to have to look at it.
I often get asked how to style artwork. There are a few tips to follow, but again it is really up to you where you hang or stand your piece. I have hung my Black Betty print from Temple and Webster low and at eye level so it can be enjoyed by everyone.
So today I thought I would share my tips for styling artwork.
Use Flowers and Plants
I love to use flowers in pots of different sizes and off cuts from my garden to frame my artwork. This stops the artwork from looking lost and sitting there by it self. The greenery brings the artwork to life. Use different sizes of greenery and flower vases to keep it interesting.
Add Books and Magazines
I’ve added a pile of my favourite magazines under the artwork. This gives the space some balance and also adds interest.
Candles and Jars
Add some colour with your favourite candles and vases. I’ve added my favourite colour pastel pink and some marble and copper to add colour and break up the space.
Knowing where to hang your artwork can be tricky. I didn’t want Black Betty to be centered to the buffet. I had the artwork hung low so it could be enjoyed by everyone and so it didn’t look lost on the huge wall it was being hung on. Another option could be to just stand your artwork. This can look really great especially for oversized pieces.
Trust Your Instincts
Lastly, my advice would be to trust your instincts. Buy the art you love, hang it where you want and if you love it, then that is all that matters.
Black Betty is from Temple and Webster.
