Start a room design with just one piece of extraordinary art. The art will transform your room and help you determine the rest of your décor, setting the color scheme and tying all your interior elements together.
First, take time to figure out what kind of art you like, rather than purchasing what’s “in” at the time you’re decorating. Art is a long-term investment that you should love since you’ll live with it on your walls for quite awhile.
Visit art galleries, local art shows and museums, and make a point to look at the artwork in your friends’ homes, noting what you think you’d like in your home, and what you wouldn’t.
