ALL THE RIGHT PLACES – SMALL ARTWORKS AT HOME
The beauty with small artworks, apart from the fact that they are usually more affordable, is that they can be incorporated in many spaces you might have overlooked!
Here are some interesting locations for placing small artworks:
The kitchen: not by the stove top of course, to avoid damages by splashes and hot steam – but beside the sink, next to the kitchen table and above the countertop would work great. Making sure you stay inspired while cooking!
By the entrance (or exit): most homes include a ‘’dead space” next to their doorway, with a narrow and lonely wall beside it. Maybe you used that space to place a hanger for your coats and keys? It’s time you replace it… Or maybe just add a piece of art beside or above it, so that it welcomes you when you enter or bids you farewell as you leave.
The bathroom: don’t hesitate, this space is relevant as any other! Artworks don’t mind being hung in the bathroom; they couldn’t care less. If the room is spacious enough, well-lit and allows a good look at the artwork, you can definitely hang a small yet significant artwork there. Have you ever considered how much time is spent in that room, and how pleasant it can be with some good, thought-provoking art?
The home office: next to your desk, and above your screen, the place to which your eyes are lifted in search of inspiration, or as you stare blankly avoiding the things you need to be doing… An artwork placed in such a strategic location will provide you with a high-quality “brain break”!
The library: why not clear some space on the bookshelf, and fill it with a small piece of art, either hung or placed against the wall?
