Ingredients For A Soulful House Part 2: Art
By far the most popular post on this blog (thank you Pinterest) is What Gives a House Soul? In it, I talk about those things that take a house beyond decorating and inject it with life. To me, those things are books, art, photos, living things, and putting everyday items on display.
Because it’s such a popular post (and one of my favorite topics too) I thought it would be interesting to do a series of follow-ups where we could look at each of those things more closely.
We started by talking about books and how they can bring life to a home and in this, part two, let’s look at art, with a focus on artwork on walls.
Art can be just about anything you want it to be, from an original piece you bought at an auction to a drawing your child brought home from school. I use those examples intentionally because I have both in my home.
You’ll notice that many of these examples are either oversized pieces or gallery walls. That’s intentional too. Art is a great opportunity to add a lot of impact to your decor and it’s also something that’s easily changed, so I say when in doubt, go big and go bold!
Here are some more inspiration photos I’ve saved…
P.S. What gives a house soul and more soulful spaces.
These photos are great. For some reason, I am in love with the painting of Abe. Have a great weekend, Julie!
You’ve shown some great ideas here. Over the last couple of years I’ve found a few pieces of art at a charity thrift store. Who knew? I do enjoy these posts! 😉
