Using Abstract Art in Your Home

Using Abstract Art in a Living Room.

Abstract art conveys a sense of unstructured movement and emotion.  It can open up creative thinking and make you look at things from a different perspective.  The beauty of abstract art is its completely subjective appeal; how it conveys a different emotion to every individual.  In the home, abstract art is color, shape, texture and dimension.  It is a way to express your individuality or a jumping off point for a room design.  Using abstract art in your home is about infusing a little something different into the space and making a statement.

An abstract painting captures your attention, especially when it is in contrast to the environment.  For example, an abstract painting is unexpected in a traditionally designed room.  When surrounded by Louis XVI furniture, an abstract painting becomes a focal point.

The lines and shapes of abstract art complement those throughout the room.  You can choose the artwork first and design the room around it or find a painting that complements the space you’ve already designed.

Ambiguous shapes and flowing colors in abstract art create a soft play of color and form in a room.  This can be very soothing in some spaces.
