One of the best ways to inspire a rooms decor is with art. Art can dictate the style, color, and overall feel of a room. Designing a room around art is much easier, and reflects your personality so much more than choosing art to fit within a room. Remember, your art should always matter.
As you can see here, I used 3 pieces from a local LA artist Jennifer Barnett Hensel to inspire this bedroom. The organic nature of the pieces made it easy to choose the items that looked best within the space.
Once you find your favorite art, start looking closely to recognize what colors are most dominant. This does not mean you are limited to these colors, it’s just a way of creating a pallet and including them in decorative pieces. These 6 colors are all beautiful, and work together well. This is why you want to balance it out with neutral colors. I thought it was a nice pallet for a bedroom because of its serene feel.
Each piece of art is small, so having 3 of them makes more of an impact overall. You want your art to reflect your personality, so always keep the size in the back of your mind.
In the end, choosing the art first lets you be more creative. One of the greatest things about having original art up in your home is that it’s a one of a kind. So no matter what, it makes your space feel so much more special and enjoyable.
If you like these pieces, Jennifer is represented by Art Cricket LA. Her work will be presented at an Art Hop in Atwater Village on January 13th. If you are in the area I highly recommend you check it out.
