Get inspired: Art work is meant to evoke an emotion and feeling when you admire it. Choose art work that you enjoy and which makes your space tell a story. Sure, the colors and context should compliment your décor as well, but the feeling behind the artwork should come across to be enjoyed by all who view it. Look around your space for inspiration, whether it is the colors, the architectural lines, or the gorgeous ocean or woodland view out the window. Your artwork should make inhabitants feel part of your space, to become the focal point. Non-traditional artwork: Who says the focal point of the room has to be a piece of framed wall art? You can make wall art be your kitchen cabinets that are outfitted in the latest trend color, or make the fish aquarium that lines your living room wall become your ‘wall art’. Instantly these pieces become the focal point of the room with the use of color, drama, and obviously the live fish are artwork enough!  How to Make Wall Art the Focal Point of your Room Position of the furniture: The direction your furniture sits in your space will help create the focal point you desire. If you have a dramatic red accent wall with wall art, position your furniture directly at it, to bring an unmistakable center stage focal point. Similarly fireplaces, expansive window wall vistas and stone accent walls can be beautiful backdrops for positioning furniture towards to display wall art. Depending on your space, the backdrop may be all the art you need. artwork red e1291637836913 How to Make Wall Art the Focal Point of your Room Abstract wall art: To bring in another level of attraction, consider using abstract wall art that doesn’t have a concrete theme or picture, but has colors and hues that you love. Abstract art can be a focal point by tying your elements together beautifully. Often time’s abstract artwork will be the glue that marries the textiles, the furnishings and finishes together without you even trying. If you’re having a difficult time in figuring out what the finishing touch of a room is, look to abstract art work, and you may just complete the puzzle. artwork gray e1291637881766 How to Make Wall Art the Focal Point of your Room

When trying to pull a room together, look to art work to provide the added focal point you may need. Through inspiration, and positioning of your furniture, the art work in your space can become the show stopper.

Every one designs differently, find a way to make your artwork work for you and your space.
