TIPS ON HOW TO DECORATE
Start with what you love.

When you stumble upon a piece of art that moves you, donít worry if it matches the sofa. It can be much easier to adjust your decor to complement your art than to find a piece of art that is both meaningful to you and already fits an existing color scheme.

Work with the architecture.

Play up the staggering height of a beautiful loft with an equally tall vertical print. Consider nestling a sculpture or hanging a mobile in a forgotten corner. A series of vintage portraits or posters along the wall of a staircase can add texture and character. Know your homeís strengths so that artwork can be a welcome part of your living space.

Arrange artwork for convenient viewing.

One of the last elements to think about it is where to place your artwork. A sculpture in the middle of a small hallway is not conducive to fluid movement, but when placed in a proper space it can be fully admired by guests. Place art above seating arrangements or better yet, face your seats to the artwork so it can be a conversation starter. Give proper lighting and visibility for easy art appreciation moments.
