If you're a visual/creative person like I am, you're probably well aware of how your surroundings can affect your mood and even your productivity levels. At the same time, it's likely important to you that your home (being the extension of yourself that it is) is able to transmit your personality and uniqueness.
I've always been drawn to interior decorating and consider this practice an art in and of itself. Being able to "collect" objects that will look great together and being able to place them in a way that is harmonious for people visiting that space, is no easy feat.
Interior decorators have an amazing eye and taste. They're artists, because they are basically creating a live-in composition that has to stay practical. They can tell, instantly, when textures, colors, shapes and styles work together or not. They know the power that a great piece of wall art can have and how the addition of a painting (or a lack thereof) can make or break a room.
In her article titled The Importance of Art in the Interior Industry, Anya Cooklin-Lofting explains how art is becoming a fundamental part of modern home decorating. She also shares how most interior designers currently rave about the importance of art as an essential decorative component. Art is able to bring interest, conversation and originality to a space.
It might seem that the acquisition of an original art piece is something that only the most affluent can do. However, thanks to Etsy and other online platforms, anyone looking to decorate their home can find very accessible, one-of-a-kind artworks created by artists of all fields.
Hope you enjoy this little collection of objects I've put together to complement this small grayscale painting that is currently for sale at my Etsy shop! Stay tuned for many more original paintings to come that will be available for international purchase!
