Expert Advice: Art ideas for your home
Minor enhancements & upgrades that make a major difference.
Art is an easy way to make your home feel more like you. While there is no list of rules when it comes to finding the right pieces, Camellia Art owner Adrianne Lively shares these five ideas to get your wheels turning.
1. Mirror, mirror on the wall
The sky is the limit when designing the perfect mirror for your master bath, powder room or dining room. And a custom mirror doesn’t have to break the bank. Determine your desired size, select your moulding and install. Your mirrors are a reflection of you and your style.
2. Bring the outside in
Heather Lancaster’s Roseatte Spoonbill adds a bold and beautiful “pop” to any room. Don’t be afraid of color.
3. Timeless creations
Conservation and preservation are the names of the game. There are different grades of glass, matting and moulding to add to your custom frame job to help keep your cherished artwork protected from acid damage, light degradation and humidity. Selecting conservation materials will preserve your artwork for years to come.
4. Express yourself
Elevate your home or office. Surround yourself with images that resonate with you. Whether it is a grouping of your favorite vacation spots, a painting that makes you smile or an abstract that is visually enticing, hang it on the wall.
5. Comfort zone
Don’t let shopping for fine art or framing become an overwhelming process. If you like it and it’s in your budget, buy it! If framing seems overwhelming, or you have a lot of questions, your framer is happy to assist you and can use their design skills to help you create something you love.
