The search for the right art
Makeup for family photos
I’ve said this a million times but I’m the kind of person who knows what she wants in interior decorating but I can’t imagine it. I can’t create it very well in my head. I’m great at trying to mimic inspirational photos I find on Pinterest, and that is why Modsy has helped me so much this year as I redecorated my office and am currently decorating the new family room.
Right now I’m stuck on art, so I thought I’d ask for your thoughts to help push me one way or the other as far as what kind of art I should go for in the new space.
I put my very ametuer skills at photoshop to work and picked 3 fine art prints at Minted that caught my eye. I know which one is my favorite, but I’m curious which one you like the best?
I just snapped this photo of the actual space yesterday. We are getting a Kallax IKEA shelving unit in a few weeks and I’ll fill the spaces with 13×13 boxes from Target. In the meantime, I just threw in that white bookshelf so you can get an idea of what will be there.
The room still feels empty, and it certainly needs a bit more styling, but part of that is intentional. I want there to be space to breathe in that room, and I love the open, airy feel of it.
So here are the three choices.
As you can see, this has a bit of color in it. I like that it isn’t overly colorful, but it certainly would operate at the focal point of this view of the room.
I love the serene feel of this piece of art. I think it would need a different frame, perhaps black? There is a little bit too much wood happening above the sideboard.
I like that this is still neutral, so I feel like it flows in the space well, but it’s a little bit more interesting to look at than option two.
So which is your favorite of the bunch? I’m really trying to find something that will be timeless and fit into the space well. As much as I love a gallery wall, I fear it will make the space too busy so I’m trying to find one large focal point of art that speaks to me!
