Interior Design, Color and Texture

Interior art, if chosen correctly and thoughtfully, can base the design, from color to fabrics, of the entire room. Embellishing with pieces from around the world provides the place with a striking balance between uniqueness and creativity. The color palette, contrast, and texture are unquestionably the most important factors of interior design. Choosing the right wall art adds to the color palette of a room and can help decipher the warmth or coolness of space. While cool colors are used to bring a tranquil feeling to the area, warm colors can be used to bring alacrity to the room. In a similar way, texture defines a place as intimate or sleek depending on how rough or smooth the bits of texture are. When it comes to wall art, there are endless possibilities for finding inspiration, ranging from paintings to drawings and photographs.

Abstract Wall Art

Ranging from abstract to contemporary, Scandinavian to minimalist, there are endless forms of wall art. Abstract paintings adopt discrepant shapes, colors, forms, and gestures as a means to reflect its structure and culture and are unequivocally captivating. These paintings do not attempt to comment on visual reality but rather convey emotions through their own vocabulary consisting of six essential elements: line, texture, shape, form, color, and value. (Artists Network) Working best with contemporary settings, abstract interior art provides the viewers with endless interpretations, a uniquely beautiful glamor to the room and an instant focal point.

Wood and Metal Wall Art 

Wood and metal have become surprisingly popular materials today as wall art as they provide an eye-catching display. While wood art provides a unique contrast to the room, metal art makes a bold statement. 

 

Tapestries 

Tapestries are usually made from woven materials and hung loosely over an open wall. Most commonly tapestries are hung from a rod above the bed’s headboard. Not only do tapestries beautify the bedroom and the living room but they can also be found as crochet. 

 

Metal Art

Interior art doesn’t necessarily limit to artworks and prints but could also entail sculptures, shadow boxes, and metal art. Adding to the texture of the room, these bits can leave the viewer stumped. Sculptures and metal art add to the visual weight of the interior by acting as the “showcase” of the room. Rough textures can provide a place with an intimate and grounded tone while smooth textures can display a sleeker, more aloof feel to the office. (Freshome)

Interior art unquestionably provides a space with a definition. It can provide a framework to work on for the rest of the room; it aids in deciding the warmth or coolness of the room and the roughness or sleekness of the texture. Depending on the individual’s tastes and preferences, wall art can transform artworks into an eye-catching showcase which lifts the space of the entire room. Choosing the right wall art and complementing it with the right color, design, and texture can incorporate a professionally put together look.
