3 Tips to Add Artwork to Your Home

Filed in: Family, Studio

If you’ve been intimidated to begin adding artwork to your home, you are not alone! It can feel overwhelming, and it can be difficult to know where to start!

Here are 3 easy tips to give you a starting point when considering wall art for your home.

#1 Size Matters

Make sure the size of the artwork you’re adding to your home pairs well with the space you’ve chosen!

Many people start off thinking an 8×10 is big, or want to start a gallery wall.

However, if not properly executed, gallery walls can make a space feel chaotic, and accidentally getting a portrait that is too small for a space can feel embarrassing.

Instead, focus a streamlined collection of 2-5 pieces, or or 1-2 statement pieces that balance out over a bed, buffet, or couch.

#2 Color Me Beautiful

While your portraits don’t need to exactly match your furniture, they should follow the same tone and color palette.

Knowing whether you want a light portrait, or a dark portrait, and what colors are predominate in your home is important to bring up with your photographer when in the planning phase of your portrait session.

#3 Light It Up

After investing in beautiful portraits, it only makes sense to invest a tiny bit more in the right lighting for your portrait.

A portrait without a light can look unfinished! We recommend this brand.
