Decorate By Colors

Color is one of the most important things to think about when you decorate a home. Having a good color scheme is essential because it can affect the mood, size, and space of the rooms you want to decorate.

Hence, one popular way to decorate a home is to fill it with specific colored artwork that will match or contrast the colors of a room. The art you display in your home should harmonize with the colors of a room’s walls, furniture pieces and rugs, flooring, or any other object that stands out in the room.

Do you want to decorate a white room? Your white-colored walls don’t have to look embarrassingly naked! You can brighten up the look of your home by adding any colorful artwork to your blank walls.

If your walls are already a specific color…

Do you want to decorate a yellow room? This color is sunny, warm, and free; it evokes feelings of happiness and hope. Decorate yellow walls with artworks that contain turquoise or different hues of orange and green. Black and white artwork looks great in yellow rooms, too!

Do you want to decorate a blue room? This color is cool, bold, and stable; it evokes feelings of calmness and trust. Decorate blue walls with artworks that contain brown or gold, silver tints, shades of gray, or a classic ivory white.  

Finding the best colorful artworks or the one’s that’ll perfectly pair with the colors of your room is easy.

Simply consider (1) the existing color scheme of a home or (2) examine the colors of objects that are already present in the room or area you wish to further decorate.

Decorate By Theme

The quickest way to add character, fun, and excitement to the place you live is to give the rooms of your home a specific theme.

Hence, one popular way to decorate a home is to fill it with artwork that will (1) create a new theme for a room or (2) fit the existing theme of a room that’s only been partially decorated.

Do you want to decorate a beach themed room? This natural environment is filled with tropical scenery, marine life, and Earth tone colors. To give a room that beachy look and feel — decorate the walls with artwork that depict the things you’d typically find on a real beach. 

(Think ocean, sand, sandcastles, palm trees, seashells, beach balls, sail boats, the horizon of the sun, etc.)

Do you want to decorate a space themed room? This cosmic environment is filled with starry scenery, celestial bodies, interstellar vehicles, space explorers, and extraterrestrial life. To make your room look out-of-this-world — decorate the walls with artwork that depict the things you’d typically find in outer space. 

(Think spaceships, space missions, astronauts, planets, galaxies, constellations, or something related to astrology and horoscopes, etc.)

Finding acollection of artwork to decorate themed rooms is easy. 

Simply consider the natural things, man-made objects, and the colors you’d see in another environment that you wish to recreate in your home.

Decorate By Style

Let’s face it. Cookie-cutter homes are often simple, boring, and void of any external charm.

Luckily, your home doesn’t have to look like everyone else’s. With just a few wall art decorations, you can transform the interior design of your home so that it always looks tasteful, inventive, and full of life!

Hence, one popular way to decorate a home is to fill it with a certain style of artwork to give it a special appeal and unique appearance.

Do you want a boho styled room? The bohemian style celebrates a free spirit attitude, living unconventionally, being in-tune with nature, and lots of washed-out color. To achieve this trending style that started in the 60’s and 70’s, decorate the walls with artwork that presents a happy, carefree, or spiritual vibe.

(Think mandalas, dream catchers, feathers, floral wreaths, sugar skulls, personified moon crescents and animated suns, peaceful animals, quotes that celebrate individuality, etc.) 

Do you want a farmhouse style room? This style is rural, nostalgic, and celebrates the simpler things in life. To achieve this style, decorate the walls with artwork that presents a cozy country home look that’ll make any place instantly feel like home.

(Think barns, wagons, windmills, farm animals and common livestock, open fields of grain, old church houses with steeples, decrepit buildings, steampowered trains and train tracks, etc.)

Finding artwork to add a specific style to your home is easy.

Simply consider illustrations and photography that’ll reflect a (1) ancient or recent time period (2) country, place, or geographic area known for its scenic beauty, or (3) type of atmosphere you want to recreate for your home.

Decorate By Personality

People like to express themselves in many different ways — subtly, loudly, and proudly.

No matter how bold you are …

You can easily display yourself, too, with the artwork you display in your home!

Hence, one popular way to decorate your home is to fill it with artwork that celebrates (1) who you are as a person, couple, or family, and (2) the things or places you personally like.

Are you a creative, imaginative, or artistic person? That’s cool, so are we! To convey your personality, decorate the walls with artwork showing unique or sophisticated illustrations, fun patterns, or eclectic designs. You know, art that makes people think.

(Think abstract art, text art, pixel art, mosaic art, black and white art, minimalist art, etc.)

Are you a bookworm, history buff, scientifically curious, or just a real deep thinker? That’s awesome because knowledge is power! To convey your personality, decorate the walls with artwork showing either portraits or famous quotes spoken by authors, historical world leaders, scientists, philosophers, and other great thinkers of the past or present.

(Think timeless authors or something that inspires you to read; Greek philosophers or contemporary thinkers; famous astronomers or brilliant mathematicians; famous presidents, war heroes, people who changed the course of history, etc.)

Finding artwork to decorate your home that will express your personality and individuality is easy. Just think of artwork that represents your hobbies, passions, and interests — whatever they may be!
