Colour is powerful enough to completely transform a room and evoke emotional responses, positive or negative, -all dependent on whether the colours work harmoniously together or not.
You can embrace the power of colour and transform your space into a more energetic and emotive environment.
Push your interior design boundaries and experiment with some colour - here are some tips on how to style colourful artworks at home to add a pop of colour to the walls.
If you’re afraid of introducing colour into your interior, a bold centrepiece is the easiest way to start.
If you keep the rest of the colours in the room simple and neutral- the bold artwork will definitely attract all of the attention.
An eye-catching composition will help create depth and movement in the space, and pop against pale walls. This is the ideal way to introduce colour to your interior without overwhelming the eyes.
Observe the subtle accents of different shades found in the artwork - it can also be mimicked in other interior design elements. Choose a similar coloured accent cushion or a lampshade, it would help tie the artwork to its surrounding environment and create a cohesive and inviting atmosphere.
An easy way to make colourful pieces feel more at home in your interior is to group a few of them together. Two or three simple artworks paired together will feel like an intentional artistic choice rather than a spontaneous decision, creating balance and consistency between artworks. Perhaps a cohesive set of works from the same artist?
When used correctly, different colour spots can interact smoothly, effectively and not overwhelming. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and prints - sometimes more looks really great!
It’s all about balance
An artwork can be used to subtly enhance the colours that already exist in the room. For example, you might choose a limited edition print that complements that shade of your curtains or chairs. In addition, the contemporary artwork will ensure that your interior feels modern and not overwhelmingly colour coordinated.
Colourful paintings are more adaptable than they first seem and they can be used effectively to enhance your colour palette.
