How to choose wall art part 1

It can be challenging to find the right art to hang in your space. The right wall art is a reflection of your tastes and interests. It can give your space character, sophistication, style, and a feeling of home. It’s an opportunity for self-expression and also serves to tie the room together. You may wonder what painting you would want to see every day when you walk into your living room... Would a landscape photograph work better there instead? What about the size? Gallery wrapped or framed? Should I pair two paintings together?

Depending on what you are looking for, DecorArts offers a wide range of prints in different genres and styles to help you customize your home. In this blog series, we will explore 3 important factors to consider when choosing art. The first is: Subject Matter.

Subject Matter in Art

Subject is perhaps the most important decision to make when choosing your art. You can have a perfectly proportioned piece of art that suits your home’s color scheme -- however, if the image does not resonate with your soul, it will feel like a hollow piece of decoration. Think about the paintings which have captured your imagination.

Do you prefer the enigmatic smile of ‘Mona Lisa' or the dramatic romanticism of ‘The Wanderer Above the Sea and Fog’? If you’re a fan of Impressionism, do you prefer the subtle, shimmering colors of Monet’s ‘Lily Ponds’ or do you prefer the bold, swirling colors of ‘The Starry Night’? If you are looking for an abstract painting, do you like the symphonic flurry of colors of a Kandinsky or the geometric grids of a Mondrian?

From Classicism to Impressionism to Modernism, we got you covered.

We have also curated a selection of stunning fine art photography featuring some of the greatest sights in the world. Perhaps you want a calming view of ‘Mist over the Mountains’ above your fireplace, or the world renown Golden Gate Bridge. Whether it be a sentimental place or a dream destination, photography also makes for a stunning statement to any wall.

The beautiful thing about art is that it’s subjective. Different people will be attracted to different subjects. This may seem to be a mysterious, intuitive process, but ultimately your individual tastes will guide you there. You will innately know which piece best represents your personal touch you wish to impart in your home, and your art will serve as a reminder of where you’ve been, what you love, and the beauty you’re drawn to.
