How to Choose the Best Inspiring & Colorful Artwork for You

Artwork is one of the best ways to make a home or office feel aligned with who you really are ...... This is because it is so incredibly subjective and reflective of a person’s soul that it transforms a room from simply being a space to an experience.
— Maggie Minor

Looking for colorful and inspiring artwork for your home or office? But don't know where to start? Well, let me help you...after all colorful artwork is one of my favorite things in the whole world and I love helping people find what they love too. 

Let's get start with the basics:

What Colors Speaks to You?

What colors really speak to you?  Do you prefer pastels? Or more dramatic colors? Is there a color that really makes your day when you walk into a room and see it? If you're on the fence take a look through the follow colors and see which one gives you a surge of excitement...

What Style of Art Speaks to You?

What style makes you feel the most positive emotions? What style would give you the most confidence and feel the most like yourself if you put it on the wall? What would make you feel bold and daring?

 

What Type of Artwork are you Looking for?

Are you looking for artwork for your walls? To decorate shelves? When most people think about artwork they think about paintings and prints but if you're looking for something a little out of the box consider wall sculpture or sculpture....it adds dimension (literally) to the room and can make you think about the world in a more creative way....I know it does that for me.

Sculpture is ideal for dining room tables, shelves, and tables that sit against walls, while wall sculpture is an excellent alternative to prints or paintings for an awkward wall (see below for ideas)

 

What Space do you Want to Make Colorful & Inspiring?

Large Spaces

Large spaces with large blank walls need large artwork. It brings these otherwise daunting spaces to life and leverages their best asset......the ability to make people feel expansive....like anything's possible. And large artwork in my opinion can make people think with bigger vision and increase creativity.

Small Spaces

Small spaces can really come alive with inspiring and colorful artwork especially ones that have been neglected. For small bathrooms or walls broken up by furniture think of the artwork like a focal point.....something that your eye goes straight to and that makes you smile.

Awkward Spaces

Believe it or not awkward spaces can become little awesome focal points in your home. You just need to find artwork that is organic enough that it doesn't emphasis the oddness of the space but instead speaks for itself so the space becomes secondary. This can be accomplished through organic wall sculpture or organic canvas prints. If you'd like a custom sized print made specifically to fit an awesome awkward space in your home, visit my custom work page.
