How to Create an Artistic Bedroom for Your New Home
September 20, 2016 9:01 am
Touring new homes in McKinney is an excellent way to come up with ideas for decorating your own new home. Model homes typically feature the latest in decorating trends for furnishings, window treatments, paint colors, and accessories.
Personalizing your new home is all about realizing your individual style. And one of the best ways to do that is with art work. A well-placed piece can create a statement in any room of your house, including your bedroom. Here are a few ways art work can transform your bedroom into a stylish sanctuary.
Dramatic Effect – A strong photo hung over an otherwise bare wall is a powerful way to add drama to a neutral bedroom.
Uniform Framing – Bring unity to a variety of prints and photos by framing them the same way, such as with black frames and white mats. Hang the finished pieces across one wall of your bedroom to create a gallery effect.
Symmetry vs. Asymmetry – If you have two prints by the same artist, you can create a symmetrical look for your bedroom by framing them the exact same way and displaying them side by side above your bed. On the other hand, if you’re a fan of asymmetry, you could display two different pieces of art work off-center on the wall above your bed to create visual interest.
Eclectic Displays – Love modern art as well as the old masters? There’s no reason why you can’t mix and match different styles of art work in your bedroom. You could even add a whimsical touch to the display by hanging one of your child’s best works of art right alongside the rest of your collection.
Matching Widths – Want to create a statement in a minimalist bedroom? Hang a single piece of art that spans the width of your headboard.
Vertical Displays – Rather than hang one or two prints over the bed in a horizontal arrangement, go vertical instead. Choose three or four smaller art pieces and display them above the nightstand, one on top of the other.
Bold Color – Liven up a bedroom’s muted walls with a pop of color, such as those found in an Ellsworth Kelly lithograph.
