Art is always a part of any space that I create for my clients -- and I love taking a piece of art and building off of it in interior design. If you've been following me for a while, you know that art is my thing. Beautiful spaces aside, art will stand the test of time and be a legacy that you can pass on to your loved ones.
In my new design studio in Lafayette, CA, I'm showcasing the work of emerging artist, Bridgette Thornton. Her original work is sold through Serena & Lily and also available in my studio in Lafayette, CA. I've got several of her pieces here for sale and in the coming weeks, I will be sharing with you how her beautiful work can be showcased in a room.
Three Tips for Designing a Space around Bold ART
Tip #1: Balance bright and bold art with neutral furnishings
Because Bridgette's work is super colorful -- I would balance it with a neutral piece of furniture. The vibrant pink works of art pictured above (and available in my studio) would look great above a deep charcoal sectional.
Tip #2: Complement the Art with Accessories
Of course, you know that I love color, and pillows are a great way to complement the colors in your art piece. That being said....you could always go neutral with accessories and let your art be the bold statement. My philosophy is the bolder the better when it comes to pillows though!
Tip #3: Finish the Room
So you've got great art and furniture....now what? Make sure that you finish the designed look of your room with lighting, tables, and accessories. If you're stuck on where to go, contact an Interior Designer to bring those final touches to your space. I guarantee you - a finished room, will bring you joy!
