How to decorate walls with pictures

Decorating with pictures is one of the best ways to personalize your home. It's also a great way to liven up a room with color and style. Decorating with wall art can be easy and fun, even if you have never done it. If you are not sure where to start, here are some simple tips to keep in mind.

One of the first tips for decorating with pictures is to do it one room at a time. Each room in your home has a style and function, so wall decorations should follow suit. Also, consider those two things along with the overall color theme of the room. For example, if your dining room has a finely detailed antique table and chairs, art that is bold and abstract will most likely clash.

Decorating with art pieces starting with wall hangings, is a great place to begin. Hanging a framed painting or photograph above a bed or sofa can quickly bring a room to life. As mentioned previously, use colors that compliment the room's color theme.

Another thing you want to consider is the general mood you want to set for each room. Choose art that fits with the ambiance you want for that room. For example, decorating with art such as tranquil landscapes or soft flowers will help elicit that mood if your den is where you want to have peace for reading.

Remember that color also affects mood. Bright, vivid colors are great when for the game or family room. On the other hand, soft pastels or gentle hues may fit better in your den or bedroom. Choose art that makes you feel good. If you do that, you can't go wrong when decorating with art!
