Why Abstract Paintings Work

No design style or direction in your home decor? Don’t worry an abstract painting creates an instant focal point for your room and a starting point to inspire more improvements.

Abstract paintings created with bright bold colours are great for developing a colour palette from. With little effort and fantastic results you’ll have a selection of colours for your walls and a choice of accent colours for your room’s decor. You can also continue this colour scheme through to the rest of your home with some variation to create interest.
 
Abstracts are not just for modern and contemporary styles of furniture anymore. These paintings are great with antiques, or an eclectic mix of everything, even 10 year old beat-up furniture from your college days can look sophisticated with an abstract painting hanging nearby. And if you don’t have very much furniture, abstract paintings suit a very minimalistic approach to design as well. Which means less expense and less clutter to create a dynamic and inviting space for you and your family to enjoy.
 
Abstract paintings can compensate for alot of home decor blunders, and on your way to a better space your abstract paintings go with you, maintaining their worth and usefulness. I am a full-time artist and I invite you to check back regularly as I often add new dramatic works of art just for your viewing.

How to Buy an Abstract Painting for Your Home

I paint for people who have a growing appreciation for their living space and want to improve it. People like myself who realize their surroundings effect how they feel. So if you’re starting a home decorating adventure, begin with the room you’re in most and pick the art first.

To select an abstract painting for your home, first measure the space where you would like your painting to hang. You can even tape newspaper to the wall and block out where you want your abstract to go.

When selecting an abstract painting ask yourself, do you prefer strong colours, contrast of light and dark, texture, or all of the above? When you’ve selected a few favorites then ask, what does each painting say to you, is one abstract more stimulating than the others?

You can’t go wrong with picking the abstract you love most above all others. Trust your gut feelings and put that painting in your cart before someone else snaps it up.

Do you feel unfocused in your living space? Bring comfort and ease to your surroundings with a bright abstract painting as a striking focal point.

Do you have worn-out furniture and a limited budget? Abstract paintings are adaptable and add sophistication and elegance to all furniture styles, yes even well-loved furniture.

Maybe you feel burnt-out as soon as you arrive at the office. Bring inspiration to your workspace with a small abstract art piece and revive your flagging motivation. Office spaces are notoriously unwelcoming. No wonder you don’t want to be there.

Is your view obstructed? With houses and condos being built closer together, this is a common problem. You can’t move the window, but you can bring everyone’s attention to a boldly painted canvas on the opposite wall instead.
