Upgrade Your Apartment With Some New Art

You have a beautifully curated apartment, with a velvet emerald sofa, white marble dining table and designer bookcase filled with your favorite books and accessories. 

But you’re missing the perfect artwork that would really tie your place together. 

There’s a lot to consider when you want to upgrade your walls, but with these tips and tricks, you’ll be able to purchase art at any budget to finalize your apartment decor.

Pick The Location

First, think about which room you need art for. If you want something for your bedroom, opt in for abstracts for a calming effect. If it’s your bathroom, then go for something bright and cheeky. Or make a statement in your living room with an exotic piece.

Choose The Right Size

Once you’ve settled on the location, it’s time to figure out what size artwork you need before you go shopping. The last thing you want is a tiny print on a large bare wall, or your artwork to be wider than the piece of furniture it hangs over. Pick a size that will fit in well with the entire aesthetic of the room.

Keep Your Color Palette In Mind

When picking art, you want to pick something that won’t compete with the rest of your furniture’s color palette. If you have white walls and neutral furniture, spice up your room by picking something more colorful. If your room already has a lot of distinctive colors, then go for a piece that sticks to the same palette or get something a little more neutral.
