Bring Art into Your Home

June 9, 2009

Creating an art gallery in your home is a great way to achieve high impact with modest effort. Your art selections will tell your guests a lot about your personal style. Plus, a home art gallery is easily changeable to suit the season, a special occasion or your mood.

Choose your theme. Will your gallery consist of works by favorite artists? Shadowboxed mementos from personal experiences or family history? A portrait gallery of family members? Or, a mix of all these styles?

Select the location. You will want a spot where guests are sure to see – and admire – your gallery. It’s up to you if you want the gallery to be a focal point for a room, or a subtle compliment to an overall design theme. Avoid spots where your artwork will be exposed to direct sunlight, but also keep in mind that indirect light and artificial light can both damage artwork too. Never hang important pieces directly over a heat source or in an area with high humidity – such as a bathroom.

When creating groupings, select frame styles that are compatible with the room decor, and mat styles and colors that coordinate well with each other. You might consider organizing pieces with a particular theme that compliment a specific room in the house.

To ensure you and your guests will enjoy your art gallery for years to come, be sure to properly frame and preserve each treasured piece. At NOA’s Art custom framing options are available to help preserve your oil paintings for years to come.

Custom framers can help protect your gallery pieces from fading, becoming brittle or yellowing with age by using the proper framing such as the one’s provided by NOA’s Art.

Paintings For Your Home

June 9, 2009

You might want to buy few nice paintings for your home or office but aren’t able to figure out what exactly to opt for. Purchasing tasteful paintings is a costly affair and hence needs adequate preparation. Before making a purchase, one should be aware of the various genres of painting.

Landscape painting is exactly what it sounds like- depiction of landscapes. These paintings are known for their striking landscapes with animals or people in the background or nothing at all. Another subgenre by the name of waterscape painting has also become popular.

Portraits are relatively close-range renditions of people. These portraits chiefly concentrate on realistic details of face, body, clothing and background. Its subgenre, animal portraiture, depicts animals especially pets in realistic details.

Still Life oil paintings focus on depicting objects from close range in realistic terms. Flowers, fruits, glass wares, or other decorative objects on a table or a flat surface usually form the subject of these paintings. These paintings focus on depiction of objects in realistic terms rather than using impressionistic techniques.

Abstract art paintings focus on line, shape, color instead of realistic forms. An abstract painter tries to project a certain mood or create a visual effect. Since abstract painting has multiple styles, choose only those that match the color scheme of your home interiors.

It is not much a matter of concern whether the paintings are original or reproductions of any famous art work. Choose painting styles that best match your home interiors. Landscape paintings in a big living room look majestic. On the other hand, abstract paintings look better in rooms with warm colors. So do your best to choose the painting type that best matches your home interior and enhances its overall look and feel.

Oil Painting Decor

Interior design is a passion of many and for those who love home decorating there are certain aspects of style that really call out to them. One of these examples would be Van Gogh paintings, or perhaps art reproductions for the majority of individuals who can’t afford to pay millions for an original Van Gogh. Those people who like to decorate with style and elegance, especially with paintings hung on the wall, will find that art reproductions are outstandingly beautiful and a wonderful way to save money while decorating with elegance.

Of course, decorating is not always easy and it actually does require hard work. Decorators must incorporate style and elegance as well as functionality. The tastes of the owners should also be considered as well as the budget set forth for the project. If you like decorating on your own, however, then you can make a plan yourself and follow through with it just as you please. Visiting stores like Ross, TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and others are outstanding because you can find great furniture and items to decorate the home with for an affordable price. The items at these stores change daily so you will have to really go through the items to find if all the pieces you want are available or not. It’s too much effort for the store to keep everything organized, but if you possibly can search through everything it will help you.

Another tip for home decorating with style and elegance is to come up with a color palette you want and find a way to incorporate those colors in your home. Fabrics, paint, furniture, wall hangings, and even those beautiful Van Gogh art reproductions are good ideas. You may want to go for bright colors or soft colors, or even use a mixture of different palettes throughout your house. What is important is that you find a way to have each room lead into the next. So, you don’t want to have a red room that just turns into a yellow room. Instead, you want a red room that has some yellow accents and then gradually add more accents as you enter the next room to keep everything combined well and beautiful.

How to Arrange Your Oil Paintings

June 9, 2009

In order to get the maximum effect of your wall pictures in terms of adding character and a focal point to the room, you need to decide where and how you want to hang them.

Here are some suggestions to help you decide how to get the best effects from your pictures:-

Modern Gallery Look: To create a modern art gallery feel, particularly nice in hallways, lobbies and stairwells, give each piece ample breathing room. Stand at the center of the first piece and take one swift, or two small steps along the wall. This is a good center for the next piece.

Above a Sofa: When placing art above furniture such as a sofa, you need to hang the picture about six to nine inches above the sofa, or at eye level.

Cluster Arrangements: Tightly group an even number of pictures together to give a statement or a focal point. This works on either large or small wall spaces, depending on the look you want.

In a row: By placing an odd number of pictures in a horizontal line to each other gives balance and the sense of space. This works well in hallways or stairwells.

By deciding where and how to hang your pictures, whether it be a tight cluster or a single print above a sofa, you can then determine the size and shape of the pictures you need to buy.

When you have decided on the room’s function, color and style, you are in a much better position to go shopping for wall pictures that fit in with the overall theme.
