How To Decorate Your Home with Your Own Artwork
If you’re an artist, whether you show your work in local galleries or all over the world or even just on your fridge, there’s no reason you shouldn’t decorate your own home with your artwork.
Planning the wall art in your home may come as an afterthought, but your wall art will create the color palette for the room and make it look finished. Having carefully placed artwork on your walls, in addition to well-designed rooms, will help you feel less stressed after a long day of work or hours in your studio.
Finally, the art you display in your home reflects you — your values, your personal taste, and what makes you unique. Every part of your home becomes a reflection of you. Why not print your own artwork and display it on your walls to fully encompass you and your personal style?
Where should I hang my artwork?
You can opt for the more common rooms to find artwork, like your living room, entryway, hallways, and bedrooms. But there are a few other places you may not initially think to add decor, but it will make all the difference in the room or space when you do.
If you have a screened in, or otherwise safe from the elements, patio it’s an excellent area to show off your own work. You can use a bright painting to liven up the area or bring the decor together with a work of your own. Even better, when you decide you want to hang art on your patio, you can create exactly what you envision for the space.
Don’t leave your bathroom walls bare! Create a tranquil and relaxing spot in your house to take your weekly (or daily!) bubble baths to the next level. Including a calming, beautiful piece of your own artwork in your bathroom can be the final touch the room needs. Create a work of art, using calming colors you can already find in your bathroom decor, and pull that room together by printing your art and hanging it on the wall.
Typically when you’re in your laundry room, you’re staring at a wall while you fold or sort clothing. Why not give yourself something beautiful to look at? Something you can connect with? And when you print your own artwork, you can create exactly what you want to see on the wall in your own style. You don’t have to spend hours going through decor on sale at Target or Walmart which you may find in your neighbor’s home. Instead, use your own unique style and creativity to paint something specifically for your home. Have it printed and enjoy it while you wash the paint off your clothes!
You can also incorporate your own artwork with other prints and knick knacks when creating a gallery wall. Recently, we wrote an article giving you tips on how to display your printed pictures and artwork in a gallery wall to help you get started.
