Matching an artwork to a room decor by color
An incredible example of color matching between the abstract work of art and the sofa placed beneath it.
In this particular case the interior design also features wooden floors that are also complimented by nature colors used in the artwork.
While it is not always a good idea to choose an artwork that matches the colors of the rest of the rooms’ design – in this case it clearly turned out to be a great fit!
Choosing a painting by color
Another great example of choosing a specific painting for a home decor based on colors.
In this case the vibrant orange tones in the abstract artwork match the tones of the chair.
Also note how the golden frame of the painting matches the tones of the cabinet placed below it.
We are certainly seeing more and more interior designs feature the use of gold.
It is one of the hottest trends in modern home decor right now.
In this case the selection of art goes perfectly to compliment the decor of the room and achieves exactly what the interior designer was going for.
Bringing back a touch of nature using art
Now a days our home is mostly composed of “cold” materials, Such as glass, metal and concrete.
While these materials offer a very “clean” look and feel to the decor of the room it is important to keep in mind that this kind of interior design style abstracts us away from our natural place – nature.
This interior design is a great example of how to use art to bring back a touch of nature into our modern home decor.
The textures and blue tones in the artwork takes our mind to the ocean and adds a splash of soothing natural vibe to the decor.
Adding color to interior decor
The interior design in this photo is done using dark, moderately saturated tones.
This is also a rather recent trend in modern home decor.
The use of these tones provides a certain elegancy to the decor of the room.
In a decor such as this it is important to remember to add a few vibrant elements that will spice up the design and bring light and life to the entire decor.
In this case this is done using this amazing colorful work of art and the flowers placed on the table and the mantle.
Creating a gradient of tones using abstract art
This interior design is a great example of how to use abstract art to create a gradient of tones in the decor.
Observe the smooth transition of tones from element to element in this design.
From the lightly toned brown colors of the wooden floors and the table to the white and grey tones in the carpet and sofa.
From there the transition to the light blue tones of the artwork is seamless and generates a smooth transition of tone that is very elegant and satisfying.
Creating contrast in interior design using abstract art
In this interior design the designer chose to utilize a lot of contrast between the different elements of the design.
The lightly toned table, cabinet, floors and chair cushions versus the very dark vases, and chair frames.
This interior decor creates the contrast the designer was going for using small selection of colors which provides an extremely “clean” and elegant look and feel to the entire room.
While this is great, In interior designs like this its important to bring back a splash of color to the design to keep it from appearing “blend”.
Since the rest of the decor screams “contrast” its only logical to choose a piece of art that is very bold and will contribute to the contrast of the rest of the design.
Adding complexity to interior design using abstract art
This interior design features multiple “simple” or “un-complex” elements.
For example: The straight lines in the wood wall, The smooth textures of the chair, The carpet and the table.
This “simple” theme is repeated through out the interior design and achieves a very soothing look and feel.
In these kind of decors it is possible to add a very bold and “messy” piece of art to introduce some visual complexity.
Since the rest of the design is so “clean” the art work will stand out and capture visual attention.
The general complexity of an interior design is an important thing to consider.
