If you want to decorate your room, but do not know how best to do it, we recommend that you turn your attention to such a decor item as a living room painting. The choice of painting on the wall in the living room should be approached very carefully because it is in the living room that you meet your friends and loved ones, gather with the whole family and spend the holidays. Today we want to tell you how to choose a painting for the living room interior.
Rules For The Selection Of Artistic Images
Paintings for the living room make even a dark room brighter and more visually attractive. They maintain harmony and proportions among the furnishings and overall decoration of the space. Decorators note a number of significant points when choosing and using paintings in the design of a room:
- Artworks of different styles randomly hung on the walls can bring disharmony into the interior and the undesirable effect of a lack of aesthetic taste.
- An interior art exhibition involves the placement on one wall works in the same style or a single theme.
- Paintings are placed on light dim surfaces without a pattern (whether it is a wallpaper, plaster, or painting) so as not to distract attention from the semantic design of the walls.
The choice of paintings in the living room is influenced by the dimensions of the living room; area and wall decoration; style solution of the room; parameters of furniture and its colors; compatibility with interior details.
Selection by color scheme
Choosing the color scheme of the home "gallery" you need to take into account the color scheme of the room furnishings, as well as the color of curtains, walls, floor, and ceiling. The wall on which the paintings will be located will become their background. You can choose canvases or photos made in the same color with the wall, framed by a baguette in a contrasting color, or, on the contrary, play in contrast, emphasizing the muted shade of the background with bright colors in the paintings. If the walls in the living room are decorated in bright colors, you should not use images made in light colors for decoration, as the background will visually "crush" the pictures. You should try to match the baguette to match the color of the wooden furniture parts.
Style of paintings
In addition to size, colors, and frames, you should carefully choose in which style the painting will be. Let's take a closer look at the main options.
