If you love modern art, you’ll eventually be tempted to incorporate it into your home. Turning your home environment into an oasis of modern art means you need to blend the right lighting with the right pieces in each room. Instead of the classic, traditional displays of art that can feel like they distill the creativity out of the process, add intrigue and your own taste to your space. One way is working with a gallery to curate your custom collection. Here are a few other ways you can create your perfect home environment with modern art.
Black and White With a Pop of Color
When displaying your modern art pieces, one option is to choose a combination of black and white photos with mainly sleek black frames. Then, mix in a splash of color with a brightly colored frame for your favorite picture.
Of course, leaving the white edges around the picture is a must. This will give you a true modern look and allow your favorite piece to stand out.
Blend Neutral Furniture into the Space
Unless you want the furniture to take center stage, blending in neutral furniture with a creamy color may be the perfect choice. When you choose a neutral palette for your furniture, it allows the art to stand out.
Choose the Lighting Intentionally
Every detail needs to be chosen to fit your overall theme. You want a cohesive home environment perfect for displaying your modern art, whether you’re decorating a mid-century modern home or turning a newer home into an oasis of modern art.
Make sure you choose the lighting intentionally. You want to add to the ambiance and compliment the natural light coming into every room. The light fixtures also represent a specific style and must fit with the style of art you plan to display in each room.
Your Fireplace Piece Needs the “WOW” Factor
Many mid-century modern homes feature fireplaces with room above for a beautiful work of art. This specific piece needs to be a statement piece you absolutely love. It will take center stage in the room and must accent the fireplace just right. Abstract paintings work very well, but don’t feel limited to just abstract art.
A beautiful modern painting or photograph may be just right with carefully selected frame and lighting. Choose wisely and you’ll be able to create the “Wow” factor above your fireplace.
Unique Shapes Stand Out
With a modern design to any room, adding a few geometrical shapes makes a difference. Choosing to frame your art in unique frames is another option for differentiating your modern art. It can (literally) take the edge off and make your room a feel more playful.
Bright Colored Works of Art
Wall art has a way of transforming a dull room into a place you’ll enjoy. Adding brightly colored modern wall art is a great way to bring the modern feel into any room. Midcentury modern design often featured bright colors and the artwork offers plenty of vibrancy. Make sure to blend the art perfectly with the furniture and other elements throughout the room for the perfect modern art home environment.
When you’re looking to display your modern art all throughout your home, every detail matters. From lighting to furniture to wall colors, you’ll want to consider every last detail to create a cohesive home environment filled with modern art.
