How to decorate your home to showcase art

Today I have an amazing home tour for you! Lindon Art Manor by Alice Lane Interior Design is a work of art itself, but it is also provides boundless inspiration for how to decorate your home to showcase art!

Designing a home that showcases art can be a wonderfully creative and personal endeavor. Here are some ideas to consider when designing a home full of art:

First, the walls

Neutral Background: Opt for neutral walls, floors, and ceilings to create a backdrop that allows the art to take center stage. White or light gray walls are versatile and complement most artworks.

Use Favorite Pieces As Focal Points To Showcase Art

Statement Pieces: Choose one or two large, impactful artworks to serve as focal points in key areas such as the living room or entryway. These pieces can set the tone for the rest of the space.

Artistic Furniture: Incorporate furniture pieces that double as art, such as sculptural chairs, unique coffee tables, or custom-made cabinets with artistic detailing.

Lighting: Proper lighting is essential for showcasing art. Install adjustable track lighting or picture lights to highlight individual pieces. Consider natural light sources and how they interact with the artwork throughout the day.

Functional Art: Invest in functional art pieces like handmade ceramics, decorative vases, or artistic textiles that serve both aesthetic and practical purposes.

Curated Collections: Display art collections in curated groupings based on themes, artists, or styles. This approach adds depth and narrative to the space while allowing for rotation and experimentation.

Artisanal Details: Pay attention to details like custom framing, unique hardware, or handcrafted finishes that enhance the overall artistic ambiance of the home.

Interactive Installations: Incorporate interactive or immersive art installations that engage the senses and encourage exploration and interaction within the space.

Personal Touches: Infuse the home with your personality by mixing in personal mementos, heirlooms, or DIY artworks alongside curated pieces.

Remember, the key to designing a home full of art is to create a harmonious balance between the artworks and the surrounding environment while reflecting your individual style and appreciation for creativity.
