Works of art, whether photos or paintings, are always a valuable tool to decorate your home.
The freedom of shapes and colors that these fragments of surface enjoy can suppose, in many cases, the counterpoint that our room needs and the detail that makes it a personal space.
Regardless of the artistic value of the work, a painting or photograph focuses the interest of the eyes of people who enter our home, so we must take care of the images that decorate our wall as well as the place where we hang them.
It is important to achieve that the tones of the picture or photograph harmonize with that of the walls and the rest of the decoration. This does not mean that the image and the walls should share the same basic color, since it is possible that their tonalities always contrast and produce a pleasing effect to the eye. Similarly, in a sober room, with furniture and minimalist accessories of simple lines, a pictorial work, whose strokes and disordered curves are the protagonists, can be ideal to give that touch of life and lightness that the room needs.
To the beauty of the images we must add the decorative value that, in many cases, the frames can possess. The choice of frame is sometimes as important as that of the image we will place on our wall. From the most classic styles, with ornate shapes and golden colors, to the most modern ones, with materials that go beyond wood and with novel designs, the current market offers a wide range of frames at very varied prices.
We must take into account the style of the room and the rest of the house before choosing the frame for our paintings and photographs. Do not forget that, depending on how the home is decorated, a canvas hanging directly on the wall without any molding may be the most effective aesthetic option for some spaces.
In the same way, the application of these concepts to mirrors can help us to improve the decoration of our residence, since, at heart, they are also a surface where an image that we can enclose in a frame will be reflected. Regardless of its main function and its practical value, we should not neglect the aesthetic effect of the mirrors and their capacity to expand the spaces.
