Hanging up art in your interiors is both a dream and a daunting experience, because we don’t want to mess up our walls by installing the wrong art piece. To even make a gallery wall is quite a bold move putting together different art pieces and blending them with other interiors of the room.
Adding texture to a room encompasses a great deal more than a fringed edged cushion here and a rough-sawn wood texture there. It is the precise art of blending the rough with the smooth and knowing how to create visual texture—the sort that isn’t tactile at all. The answer to "what is texture" and how to apply it to your interior awaits.
Art deco brings glamour and definition to your house. It is inspiring in the sense that the space is a total personalised experience for the things you want to cherish in your life or have a great attachment to whether it be an art piece or a 90s black and white photo album. Some of the art deco mistakes we can make is curating the walls too simple or too cluttered with the wrong measurement and levelling.
To blend art with your interiors, there is no specific set of instructions that comes with a box, it can be as fun and artsy as possible. The trick is to create a gallery wall that blends well with your interiors, whether it be your furniture colour, bold colours in the room, or the contrast with the wall colour.
Take your inspiration before hanging the art piece and making a gallery wall that goes well with the interiors by some of the art deco ideas given below:
LAYERING THE ART
You can layer the art with each other, putting together different frames and magnum opus together. Art layers instead of spacing of the pieces can add beautiful layers of art with decor and add dimensions and edges in the interiors. Start with the main wall of the living room of an open shelving system of the house and add in different textures and blends of art pieces and open artsy frames to make the walls a distinct standalone piece.
ODD NUMBER PLACEMENT
With an odd number of art pieces arranged in the wall, there is a centre frame and the two pieces at the side that are mirroring each other, The trick is to make them balanced and complete set in the wall to secure a correct equilibrium into the walla and make the interiors go well with each other in symmetry. Odd number placement keeps things light and free with a happy go luck interior look.
FRAMES OF THE ART WALL
Adding different shapes and patterns and sizes of the frames in the walls gives a complete set look to the beloved gallery wall. It defines the space and adds in-depth texture to the interiors. Add the heavy pieces in the bottom and lighter ones in the top to blend the art without making it look too cluttered. Make sure that the arrangement matches the interior decor and the prominent colours in the room. Don’t make the art too clashy in colour contrast. Keep it in the low. Frames of the wall can range from classy to funky and colourful; empty frames, anything to make a creative space.
BLEND WITH THE DECOR
Adding the art pieces with the decor can help uplift both the decor and art. There is two in one combination we shouldn’t miss. Select artwork for your walls that complements the other colours in the space. Art can introduce an additional accent colour, but it should fit into the overall colour scheme. Look for common hues in your other furniture and decor to guide your artwork picks. The colour orientation in your art pieces can be inspired by the room itself to make the maximum effort on blending the space with art.
TEXTILES FOR ART
Here's an interesting incorporation. Set in the colour and textures running in the room by matching textiles and using them as artwork. Textiles are not only for coverage but also to beautify the designs and are intricate and detailed oriented. Textiles like tapestry, jute wall hanging for a boho-chic room, mosaic tiles or printed tiles for a traditional and laidback room would look excellent. Jute and cane textiles are a sustainable options in wall decor art.
WALL AS THE ART PIECE
Directly paint on the wall and make art. There are many DIY’s that are available that you can wonderfully incorporate. From mandala art to geometric shapes and 3D wall patterns. Include art on walls. Wall art can make the room feel more polished and whole but still organic. Plus you can add the colours that are included in the room like black accent furniture and clack art would make the room more polished and natural without adding too much in the room and keeping it minimalistic.
SET THE MOOD
Add in the art that sets the mood and aesthetics of the room and helps with the art and interiors that you have set in the room. Add luxuriant murals in the dining hall to make it an ever so grand dining experience or add a beach-inspired photo wall with a measured squared photo wall to give the light neutral aesthetics. Frames can be painted into the required mood.
Staircases and hallways are too narrow to incorporate some magnum ous or decor therefore using art hangings to spruce up the hallways is the best way to improve the passageway interiors of your house. Use strong backing like wallpaper or eccentric colour to piece along with a big art piece or a gallery wall. Staircases and hallways are excellent places to incorporate art that speaks tones about the general air of the interiors.
When it comes to home décor, a blank wall is just boring. We'd much rather delight in personalizing our walls with photos, fun prints, and expressive paintings to match the vibe we want to exude in each room. But hanging art can sometimes lead to such choice paralysis that our walls end up bare for much longer than we'd hope. Just think of the number of prints that are currently rolled up unframed under your bed, or the frames that have sadly been leaning against a wall for months. There's just something about committing to drilling a hole in your wall that feels so permanent. There is art in curating a gallery wall and you can add a wonderful depth to your interiors by blending art with the interiors.
