No matter what you chose or how you display it; At the end of the day, all that matters is what looks good to you.
These 5 tips will help you get started on choosing art for your home with ease.
- Keep your Art Original
Just because we only hear about art being bought in millions, doesn’t mean you can’t get one in your budget.
Most people when they think of buying art for home decor, think of getting replicas of a famous painting or buying expensive artworks from a known artist.
But in reality, you don’t have to.
Art should resonate with you, inspire you and make you feel at home.
And what better than a work of art made from your memories.
Decorate your home with a handmade landscape painting made from your favorite scenic photo. Let it soothe the walls of your home with its calm and beauty.

- Don’t Rush
Take your time to figure out what and how you want the art to sit in your decor.
It is hard to visualize how the art will look in a certain space, it helps to have a sketch or digital print of the space to help lay out your art.
And remember, you don’t have to get everything up all at once. Decorating with art is a process that takes time.
And the best advice I can give you is that you will know the perfect piece you see it so, don’t force yourself to choose something that you aren’t sure of.
- Focus On Good Framing Not Same Framing
Play with your frames.
A good frame will make any art look wall-worthy.
Frames create a boundary around the art to keep the focus of the viewers on the art.
Make sure the frame you choose compliments the art and does not overpower or distract you from it.
Mix and match and have fun with your frames.
- Add A Little Humor
Be playful and have some humor in the decor.
It helps keep things interesting and light. Art isn’t always serious.
Find art that can make you laugh and set a good vibe to space.
Like this painting of Juliet’s little sister; she loved pretending to be a spoilt queen as a child and now nothing cracks up the entire family like remembering her childhood antics.
Be a royal painting of your siblings or a funny portrait for your dog; you can bring humor and lift the mood of a space with a custom handmade painting.
- Don’t Forget to Add Colors
Don’t be basic; stick to just neutrals or just black and white.
Colors can brighten up your space and bring depth to your home. They elevate the decor by bringing out your personality.
Having at least one piece of colorful art can bring much-needed drama into a bland room.
And last but not least have fun, after all, it is about the journey and not the destination.
These were all the tips that will help you get started with decorating with art.
