Hang Abstract Art and Create Your Own Art Gallery

I hang original abstract paintings in every room to create an art gallery at home. Having bold modern art on display in my home is for everyone to enjoy. My living space shows my love of color, shape and texture with all the bold colorful canvases I have.


I love to pair colorful abstract art in my home with eclectic furniture pieces, comfy pillows and great lighting to show off the wonderful decor items I’ve collected over the years like pretty vases, pottery and glass. Of course it’s the beautiful modern abstract paintings I hang that bring everything in a room together. The colors and textures in the abstract art pick up all the colors of the surrounding art and decor, creating a dynamic multi-layered space.

If you’re starting a home decorating makeover and want your own art gallery, begin with the room you’re in the most then pick your colorful paintings first. You can update any space by using a bold contemporary painting, because abstract art creates a great focal point and brings all the other design elements in a room together. View your space with an abstract painting and then without and you’ll see the difference immediately.

The abstract painting Mother and Child shown above is a textured acrylic in green, purple, blue, red, yellow and orange.

Hang Bold Abstract Art to Bring Mismatched Home Furnishings Together

I 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 hang has the right mix of colors to go with each piece of furniture it brings the whole space together.  Too many people decorating with bland neutrals, so have fun with your home decorating.


This is how it works! Do you have furniture and home decor items that you want to place together, but the problem is that no matter what you do the end result just doesn’t work? For instance you want to place a striped armchair together with a floral footstool.

Then try this. Hang a bold abstract on your walls with colors that compliment both pieces of furniture. Watch the space be transformed into a cozy corner by using your colorful abstract canvas as the bridge to connect the mosaic of beautiful tones and textures in your furniture. The clashing fabrics now seem like they were meant to be together. Once you try this decorating with abstracts technique you’ll want to use it everywhere.

The abstract painting Backyard Lanterns shown above is a textured acrylic in green, blue, purple, red, yellow and orange. In this modern abstract painting strings of colorful paper lanterns are hung in the backyard as the sun goes down and gives ambience to an evening under the stars. Night is my favorite time of day. This original wall hanging measures 18" x 24".

How Colorful Modern Abstracts Make Home Decorating Easy

Hanging abstract paintings is an easy way to redecorate. It takes minutes instead of hours. So don’t bother painting your walls another dull neutral color. The walls may look fresh for a few days, but soon they’ll just feel drab and you’ll be tired of your living space yet again. A boldly painted abstract canvas will do a better job.


Wallpaper is another option, but it’s a big undertaking. A beautiful abstract wall hanging may be better suited to the space you’re decorating. A colorful contemporary painting will evoke that bright welcoming atmosphere you want for connecting with family and friends without the hassle.

Also if you want to declutter your living area and create better flow, rather than buying more furniture to put things in, let go of things you don’t need. If the room seems sparsely decorated after decluttering then hang abstract art on the walls to give the room that warm inviting lived-in feeling, because while sparse living spaces are trendy, they can feel cold when devoid of color. So fill up your walls with beautiful bold abstract paintings and live it up with the extra moving around space.

The abstract painting Bumpy Bus Ride is a textured acrylic in green, blue, purple, red and yellow.

You start to apologize, but then you remember he was so rude to you the day before. This original wall hanging measures 18” x 24”.
