Art is so fascinating. Behind every piece of artwork is a story, an expression of self, passion, and an emotion that is completely up to each individual to interpret. Art is uniquely personal to each human being. To me, taking a blank or existing space and transforming it into a work of art is so meditative and relaxing. I truly enjoy it especially after all the hard work and layering that goes into creating the final outcome. Do you enjoy art and if so what does art mean to you? Do you have artwork that you or your family have created or artwork you collected because you simply appreciate art? Is it stored away in your closet or garage because you aren’t sure how to display them cohesively and elegantly? Not to worry. There is an “art” to exhibiting art in your space. Check out some tips and ideas below for how to display artwork in your home or office that transforms it from dull to sparkling.
Mix & Match
Mix and Match frames and different styles of artwork to create visual interest and dimension. Almost any frame style and finish can coexist together in an elegant way. You can combine vintage frames, matted frames, shadow box frames, float frames, or painted ceramic glass frames together that is harmonious and blends with your decor. Mixing different finishes from antique brass to gold, bronze, silver, black, and iron further creates dimension rather than being flat and monotonous. Besides mixing frame styles and finishes, try varying the size and shape of your artwork from small to large or from oval to rectangular. The more eclectic the more you will achieve an “exhibition” feel.
