It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and as many can attest, that mode of thinking is right on the mark. The same can be said for artwork. Keep an open mind, and accept each piece for what it is and how it speaks to your soul. Selecting artwork is an individual choice dependent on personal preferences. Whether you purchase art as an investment or as a visual accessory to your home, it's important to remember you'll be seeing it regularly, so be sure it is a piece you love.
Now that you've chosen a piece that's visually appealing to you, the next step is to place it in your home. Works such as a sculpture, pottery or hand blown glass art can be featured on tables, mantels, curio cabinets, the floor or almost anywhere. Framed photographs, paintings and various types of prints should be hung on a wall or "rested" on a mantel or table.
When you've selected an art piece because you enjoy it and it speaks to you, you may have to opt for a trial-and-error approach to placing the piece in your home. Be open to switching locations, reconfiguring your furniture, repainting or adding a focal light positioned on the piece to add to its beautiful appeal.
If you are buying artwork to simply add interest and beauty to your existing space, keep in mind how the colours of the piece coordinate with your room, as well as the size and the style of the work to ensure it will fit in where you have planned it to go.
