Do your furniture pieces have different design styles, or colors? For instance if you want to place together a striped armchair and a floral footstool. Then hang a bold abstract canvas on your wall with colors that compliment both pieces of furniture to connect the once conflicting fabric patterns. The space will be transformed into a cozy corner by utilizing a mosaic of beautiful tones and textures.
I actually like combining furniture and decor items that don’t match, it creates tension and interest, and makes a room look bigger. Then if the contemporary abstract art I want to hang has the right mix of colors to go with each piece of furniture, it brings the whole space together. I love doing this sort of thing, because I see too many people decorating with bland neutrals. So have fun with your home decorating.
Abstract painting Neighbors Greet Mother and Baby shown above is a textured acrylic with swirls of paint in bold blue, green, yellow and orange with hints of indigo. Neighbors stop and greet a mother as she pushes her new baby snuggled comfortably in carriage down the street. This original wall hanging measures 18" x 24".
