Design Inspiration: 5 Unique Ways to add ART into your home

I'm always on the hunt for something unusual and artful to either add to a design that I'm working on for a client, or for my own home as well. 

If you follow me on instagram (@pricestyleanddesign), then you know that I am an ART LOVER -- but art doesn't necessarily have to be in a traditional form (like a sculpture or painting) -- you can add art to your home in the form of decorative accessories too!

 Here are a 5 unique ways to add ART into your home:

1. Pillows
Pillows are the easiest way to add some punch to your decor! This long lumbar pillow would look so cute on a full or queen size bed with a white bedspread as a neutral backdrop.  It's so cheery and I love the subtle herringbone pattern in the fabric.  It's from one of my favorite places to shop:  Furbish Studio

2.  Artful Accessories

Add a little art to your desk in the form of a stylish artistic notebook by Brit Bass Turner.  I love using a notebook to keep my 'lists' of 'things to do' all in one spot!

3. Unique Lighting

This lamp just makes me smile!  Hand painted and what a jewel!  Instead of a canvas, this 'painting' is a unique and usable art form!  While not inexpensive, it's a creative way to add original art into your space!  Find it here.

4. Baskets  Baskets are sculptural and useful.  Add a plant, roll up bath towels, stack magazines or books, or use a basket to drop your shoes in after you walk in the front door. There are so many uses for this art form!  This basket is from Nordstrom and it's on sale!

5. Painted Furniture and Pretty Fabric

Painted furniture or fabric as art.....
A little splash of color in the form of furniture or upholstery is a masterful way to incorporate some artistic zest into your design plan. These mint colored items are from Target!  I recently specified the above bedside table and chairs in a design for a girl's room for one of my clients:

I hope this has inspired you to bring some joyful and unusual artistic elements into your home!
