When it comes to art and interior design, I feel it is a broad subject to discuss (Duh). KD & I were not able to buy a single piece of an art piece in our first condo since we were so clueless & newbie about what and how to select art pieces, how to fill up the huge wall with statement pieces etc. Decorating a big and large wall with artwork can be daunting especially now we have a huge home in the bay area; I would love to take this opportunity with the large wall art pieces
During the holiday time(since we had time for ourselves after 3-month long guest visits), I started experimenting with watercolors. I tried to keep in mind what kind of interiors we are leaning towards and apply watercolor art techniques in my art pieces. As our home is more transitional styled home, I tried more abstract and botanical art prints. I used gouache water paint color to give more depth into the pictures. These art profiles can go well with modern farmhouse as well as modern contemporary house decor. I would not even second guess myself if I need to put these art pieces in the mid-century modern home. To go well with home decor, I would pay attention to interior material choices, furniture and overall theme of your home. Since this topic is too wide, I would like to shorten my wisdom over here :) feel free to ask me any questions via email or comment section.
In my opinion, this was the perfect blog post to start for this year to beat the January Blues. I feel art is the best outlet to keep the spirit up while there is cold outside, short days. I would love image myself with - a nice bowl of warm soup or tea + Water Color Painting and some excellent Interior Design Inspirations.
To hang my art, I truly followed guidelines from one of my favorite interior designer Studio McGee. I am attaching the links of the guidelines:
This is how I am battling with January Blues. I would love to hear from your side, how are you all dealing with this cold winter?
These watercolor prints will be soon available for our reader to download in our shoppe section!
