Creating an Inviting, Homey Space
Using Original Art in Living Room Decoration
As its name would tend to suggest, your living room is the room that you and your family
will likely spend more time in than any other, or at least more time awake in. When designing
your living room, you should take the lifestyle that your family lives into account. Your living
room should be a reflection of your lives, so that at all times, you feel comfortable and at
peace when you are in it. One great way of accomplishing this is to add original artwork to
your living room when you are decorating it.
Original artwork is artwork that has been created specifically for you. You may have seen
pieces by the artist that had a similar look and feel or were of a similar subject matter, but an
original piece is one that you have commissioned. The benefit of asking a contemporary
painter to create an original piece for you is that you can tell them what you have in mind,
you can ask for specific colors in
a specific size, and have a piece
created that is exactly what you
were looking for, without having
to spend hours and hours
searching for just the right piece,
to no avail.
For many families, the living
room is the room that will play
host to many memories.
Holidays, movie nights, important
conversations and other great events often take place in a living room. Using original artwork
to decorate the room puts a mark on that room that is just as unique and special as the
family that lives there. Many contemporary artists are thrilled to have the chance to become
a part of your family’s memories by providing a backdrop on which to have memories play
out for years to come. Unlike hanging a replica of a famous painting, which can be mistaken
for a painting hanging in anyone else’s home, an original work will stick out in your mind's
eye forever.
