Building Your Space Around a Concept

Though there are also a variety of resources and false information that can mislead you, there is value in consulting with an interior designer to determine what the best course of action would be for you depending on your needs. In today’s blog, your Houston, TX interior designer explores the benefits of creating a space around a central concept, and how artwork can serve as an important focal point.

A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words

As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words. Art can convey a variety of concepts, from feelings and emotions to themes and motifs. What’s more? Artwork can bring a space together, just as it can cause a room to feel crowded or overly claustrophobic. With that in mind, many clients can benefit significantly from considering how artwork will contribute to their redesign, either making or breaking a concept.

Some places benefit significantly from a striking image or two, but be wary of the impact of too much going on. The last thing you want is for aspects to clash, and sometimes art can be so abstract that it can clash with a variety of aspects in many ways. As such, you may want to consider beginning with art selection so that the rest of the pieces fall into place around a specific piece.

Communicating Themes

Another important factor to consider when utilizing artwork and wall hangings is how these components communicate themes. For example, say you want to utilize a gorgeous painting of a lighthouse and the edge of the sea. Though most of the picture consists of neutral colors and soft textures, perhaps the lighthouse door or roof is a striking red color. With this, you could benefit from implementing that same shade of red in a number of areas in the room. In other words, you may implement a piece of furniture of that same color or a light fixture that accents and emphasizes this splash of color, thus tying the entire space together.

What to Keep in Mind

As an additional piece of advice, we recommend selecting a theme and running with it. This could mean centering a space completely around a piece of art, or even utilizing art that has similar themes to concepts you have already added to your space.
