So here’s some HOT tips below for entering into the beautiful boutique world of ART!!!
Investing in art is a MASSIVE commitment – it’s expensive, personal and you will most probably have it forever if it’s something that speaks to you!! So let’s get it right the first time! 😉
First. Things. First… write down the MEASUREMENTS of the area and understand the SCALE of the artwork needed. Take these notes with you. Put them in your phone, write it in your diary or tattoo it on your forehead… Just make sure you have them with you!
Secondly, check the LIGHTING in your space. Is it a darker/smaller space that needs something moody or something to brighten it up? Or is it an open plan brightly lit room that could use a splash of soft colour and texture like our Jessie Rigby Artwork.
Make sure you do some research! Read a book, a magazine, go online and visit the Australian Art Gallery and find out what mediums and styles and designs you like. Also what’s your budget? That will help determine what you can afford! Understanding terms such as an original, reproduction and limited editions can be sooooo helpful as well.
Know about the artist where possible. This will give you a better insight to understanding the context of the piece, making it that little bit more special! Remember to support the Australian Artist, especially those that are new to the scene!
LOVE what you choose and TRUST your instinct! Choosing Artwork is VERY personal and should create a reaction and draw you in! It’s a way to express yourself after all…
In an ideal world an artwork should be chosen before any other homewares and styling pieces, you want the artwork to be the hero of your home! This is obviously not realistic so be sure to understand what pieces you already own. Do you have an ongoing colour theme already? Matching your pillows to the artwork so it compliments the artwork simply be the fix you may need! This will create a cohesive area.
Luckily there are people called stylists and guess what? We would LOVE to help you find that DREAM ARTWORK that compliments your interior styles! Simply send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
