Do you want to make your home feel warmer and more cozy overall? If so, here are some top tips that will help you elevate your space while choosing art that truly reflects your personality.

Take your Time

One of the first things you need to do is take your time when finding the right piece of art. Finding the right piece takes time, and whether art is good or bad truly depends on your style. That being said, it’s usually possible for you to find something if you look online. Some sites give you the chance to search by color, style, or medium, so make sure you keep this in mind if you want to get the best result out of your purchase.

Choose the Right Art

One of the best ways for you to decorate your home with art is to trust your intuition. People rarely go out shopping for abstract paintings, or vintage pieces with dark colors. You simply need to see what pulls you at the time. If you see a piece that captivates your attention or one that stirs your emotions then this is great. Pick it up and find somewhere for it, because if it speaks to you, it’s the right piece for your home.

Opt for Autumnal Colors

Sometimes the best way for you to add warmth to your home would be for you to opt for warm and autumnal colors. If you have a fireplace, try and put a nice warm piece of art above it as this will compound the effects. Making your home feel warm will also help because if your home is warm temperature-wise, then this will bring out the coziness of it in general. If your home doesn’t feel warm and inviting then this is the first thing you need to sort out. Look into furnace repair so you can get the issue sorted out as soon as possible.

Evoking Emotion

Sometimes warmth comes from connecting with a piece. Certain artwork may make you laugh, or it may make you feel serene and calm. Either way, you need to pay attention to your current mood when choosing a piece. If you see a piece of art and you can’t get it out of your mind then this is a clear sign that it should belong in your home. The best art will grab your attention and it will also reflect the theme of your home whenever a guest walks into the room. This helps to add an element of warmth and personality. On top of this, unique art is a fantastic conversation starter, so don’t overlook that.

Cohesive Palette

When you decorate with art, do what you can to stick with a cohesive color. If you can do this then you will soon find that it is easier for you to stop the room from being overwhelmed with color. If you are mixing old with new, or if you are adding some vintage artwork, try and weed out what doesn’t work in terms of color or cohesiveness.
