Art as the focal point

Art in the interior of a home truly reflects the personality of the owner.

The way that art is displayed can tell a story of the owner’s experiences, preferences, and interests.


Whether a large wall is occupied with a collection of artworks or a single large canvas, it can be a challenge to ensure the space is balanced.

In contemporary art, frames are often minimal or non-existent, and the art is simply “staged” in the living space. This can be a great way to keep the view from becoming too complicated. However, when it comes to older works of art, like those from the 19th and mid-20th century, more elaborate framing can be used to emphasize the beauty and importance of the piece.

Natural sunlight is also a key part of the visual display of art. The light can be used to emphasize characters of people, different types of art, and to showcase glass or a centerpiece. Adding natural light to the room can give the art more of a story, and can be more interesting to look at.

If we're looking to build a niche with art, one great place to start is in your home's interior. Artwork is an excellent way to add personality and depth to any living space, and there are countless ways to incorporate it into your decor. Whether we opt for large statement pieces or smaller, more subtle works, art can help transform a room from bland to beautiful. Not only does it add visual interest, but it also provides an opportunity for conversation and reflection.

Additionally, adding light to the niche is necessary to illuminate the art. High level lighting, such as a direct spotlight, is essential to ensure the art is truly illuminated.

Mixed media and pieces of various sizes and shapes can also be used to create a visual statement in the home. Round shapes, irregular shapes, and other forms of art can make a space look more interesting and inviting. Additionally, the art of framing can be used to make a space more visually appealing.

In conclusion, we create art to tell a story. The way the art is displayed can be used to create a visual statement. Natural light and high level lighting can be used to emphasize the pieces, and framing can be used to make the works stand out even more. And building a niche in the wall can be a great way to showcase art, and using mixed media and various shapes of art can create an interesting story in the home.
