How to choose a picture in the house

In modern interior design, more and more applications are found not only posters or art decorations, but also paintings.

Traditional oil painting is experiencing another revival. Despite the General availability of printed products and fashion for printing “on canvas”, the real work of artists confidently occupies a place in the heart of people who appreciate individuality and uniqueness. It is no secret that this painting, despite the fame or obscurity of the author, is the author’s and unique. It is impossible to duplicate all shades of colors and texture of strokes with 100% hit.

How to choose a picture for your interior?
Minimalist spaces love abstract art and large elements.

It is a large space, not burdened with decorative elements, that will well emphasize the depth of the composition and will not interfere with the complexity of perception of such a work. The main focus in this case is on colors and lines.

Large-format work needs air. These images are hung on the walls with the most favorable, wide viewing angle, making the picture the center of the entire composition of the room.

Remember the main thing, in order to appreciate the beauty of fine art, it is necessary to place it so that it is well viewed. Usually paintings are hung just below or at eye level of a standing person.

Classic interiors are suited to realistic landscapes and still lifes.

Impressionism with its complex compositions and shades can also fit harmoniously into classic interiors as an accent.

For a traditional living room, a gallery of family portraits or works of modern impressionism is good. Buying a painting in the living room is much easier. The choice is not limited by borders. Landscapes, portraits, flowers, paintings in the animalistic and religious genre. All kinds of views and compositions will be appropriate in this room.

Often the living room has portraits of their ancestors or prominent people. Pay attention to the colors of the paintings, they can refresh the room, emphasize something, they should complement and decorate the place of their location. It is important that the palette of work is harmoniously combined with the color scheme of the interior of the room.

The “country” style will be supported by rural landscapes, etc.

In the office usually hang “strict” pictures. You can often see mountains as a symbol of stability. Images of animals, birds, fish, butterflies and other insects are also a great theme for a study or library in a classic style.

For the interior of the kitchen, choose still lifes of flowers and fruits. They are the very embodiment of prosperity. The atmosphere of this room should not be flashy. Eating and cooking is as important a process as resting.

Paintings as an element of decor play an important role, creating the integrity of the image and the atmosphere of a cozy and lived-in space. They fill the room with positive energy and calmness, allow you to find spiritual harmony, relax.

Paintings on the wall can visually correct the shortcomings of the room. The composition of hanging paintings in the interior is directly influenced by the geometry of the surrounding space. For example, pictures placed vertically in a row can make the ceiling seem higher, and, on the contrary, hung horizontally — its width.

If the task is to make a narrow and long room seem shorter, it is enough to place one large and bright picture on its end wall.

For the office, choose paintings with deep meaning and abstract images. If the room is made in a restrained style, works by modern artists are perfect.

True connoisseurs of painting are advised to buy office paintings in the form of copies of paintings of the greatest creations. The baguette should emphasize the beauty of the chosen fine art.

A picture painted by an artist carries a certain emotional charge. If it is close to your state of mind, it will respond to it without fail. Feel free to pass by works that do not cause any feelings. If the picture attracts, its colors inspire and cheer up, it is worth looking at such a work. The name of the artist, in this case (if You are not a collector) does not matter.
