Art Installation at Home: Challenging, Fun, and Creative!
As a Brooklyn interior designer, one of the easiest solutions to any blank space is by hanging wall art. Imagine a beautiful piece that you love hanging on your wall! It automatically transforms the space into something new and it provides an artful focal point for the room and your eyes. Curating art pieces is not necessarily a difficult task, you simply need to enjoy yourself and be creative!
Mixing mediums, which might give some a second thought, can make a terrific layout. Rest assured, with my experience as a Brooklyn interior designer, here are some combinations I’ve compiled: Black and white, color, photography, paint and drawing, different style and color frames, and a mix of both heavy and lighter matting to create visual depth to a space. Antique, new, and everything in between are all considerations for mixing to make for an interesting and appealing layout. Where you may want one large piece over a headboard or substantial piece of furniture, a flow of mixed pieces can guide one down a corridor or along with other long, open wall spaces. Lastly, don’t be afraid to use an asymmetric layout behind a sofa, you do not need to center everything or cover every square inch of wall space
Foyers, entryways, hallways, and stairways can be terrific spots for a gallery of family photos. Whether it is just you, or you have another half, you can mix in both sides of the family for a wonderful history with your current and past family members.
One last thought: always be safe and not sorry! If you have a 20-pound piece of art, using a 30-pound hook can assure that piece stays where it is meant to be.
