How to choose decorative paintings for different styles in your home


Four principles for choosing hanging paintings


Decorative paintings are not meant to be eye-catching, but to better coordinate with the surrounding home atmosphere. As long as the scope of selection is circled, "art novices" will not go wrong no matter what they choose.


① If you can be abstract, don’t be concrete.

Representational painting looks at whether it can accurately reproduce the copied things, which is simply a "painted image"; at the end of the 19th century, abstract painting, which uses lines, shapes and color blocks to express emotions, became popular and developed.

Abstract paintings originate from the development of modern art, are full of highly concise and geometric elements, and can be viewed from more angles than figurative paintings.

Different from the things we see every day, it is eye-catching enough, and this sense of strangeness also seems very advanced.


② If you can hang sketches and prints, don’t hang oil paintings.

Drawings and prints emphasize the lines of the picture. The colors are relatively single and overall, not too eye-catching. They are versatile and show aesthetic taste. No details are lost when you look closely. They are very suitable for modern homes.

Many people want to have a retro artistic atmosphere at home, so they subconsciously look at oil paintings, especially European or American style homes.

Oil paintings have strong brush strokes, heavy textures, and too many and complicated colors. It is difficult to match them well when you buy them home. Moreover, most people who buy oil paintings prefer figurative paintings, and they get tired of looking at them soon after hanging them at home.


③ The simpler the color, the better

If the colors of the decorative paintings are many and rich, it will easily look messy and difficult to match.


Just like hanging paintings decorated with landscape photos, black and white photography has fewer colors and a stronger sense of layering, making it look more advanced than hanging a color landscape photo directly.

Microscopic photography that magnifies details is also recommended. It is usually a partial close-up of a plant, with uniform colors, breaking away from the daily perspective, and creating a sense of strangeness through a small glimpse of the big picture.


④ Hang big, don’t hang small

If you have a free wall in your home and plan to hang a painting, it is more recommended to hang a large painting. The size of the painting and the aspect ratio of the wall can be better controlled.


The photo walls we often see in traditional American homes, although very warm, are visually messy and earthy.

So many photos need to ensure rhythmic unity in the changes, which is a test of matching skills and is not suitable for most ordinary families.




Unify with the decoration style

In fact, the soft decoration of the home is to set off the overall style of the home decoration. Not only the content and color of the painting must be consistent with the decoration style, but the material and color of the picture frame must also be commensurate with the decoration style.

Tips: If the house is decorated in a classical European or French style, you can choose oil paintings with a retro feel as decoration.

If the decoration style of the house is Nordic minimalist style, then it should be adjusted according to the decoration style and choose modern minimalist decorative paintings.

Of course, if you are not satisfied with a fixed matching style and pursue uniqueness, and hope that every home item has its own story and unique meaning - congratulations, complex mix and match is one of the ways to reflect your unique taste. First, retro-style artist works are an unmistakable choice.




Grasp the color matching of space

Grasping the color of the decorative painting is the key to selecting a perfect decorative painting.

The main color of the decorative painting should not be completely separated from the interior color matching, but should follow the principle of "traceable", that is, extract the similar main color of the painting from the main furniture color, and extract it from the secondary color. The embellished colors in the paintings are extracted from the home accessories, so that the decorative paintings can echo with the overall environment.

Grasping the color of the decorative painting is the key to selecting a perfect decorative painting.

If the overall colors of the walls and furniture of the house are cool, then you can use bright-colored decorative paintings that do not conflict with the overall tone to coordinate the colors. This will not only prevent the tone in the house from being too monotonous, but also add vitality to the living place. .




Reasonable space display

When matching decorative paintings on the background wall, appropriate white space is an easier matching skill for novices to master. Filling the background wall has very high requirements on the tone and theme of the decorative painting. Improper matching can easily cause the space to feel depressing.

Before installation, remember to draw the layout and measure the dimensions to avoid regrets after nailing.

Here is a brief introduction to several display forms of decorative paintings for your reference. There will always be one suitable for your home:
