5 spaces in your home that you could decorate with great artwork
Your home is an expression of your own self. It reflects your taste, likes and personality. It speaks for you even when you're not there. And when it comes to making a statement, nothing works better than a set of carefully curated artworks. Here's a brief rundown on what works best for different areas of your home.
Bedroom

The most intimate of spaces, your bedroom is where you head to after calling it a day. A zone of comfort, tranquility and relaxation, the artworks you choose should evoke the same. Go for gentle colours, abstract forms or beautiful landscapes that will soothe your senses and put you at ease.

Living room

The space for gatherings, celebrations, parties and movie marathons. In short, the liveliest space in your entire home. Go with pop art if you want to maintain a fun or irreverent vibe. Or a limited edition abstract piece if you want to intrigue guests and start conversations. And if you're a traveler, a cluster of your dream destinations taking up an entire wall can work out great too. This is the space where you can let your imagination run wild. So go for it, we say!

Kids' room

Art plays an important role in developing the imagination of children and introducing them to ideas like beauty and aesthetics. While cartoon characters are an obvious choice for most, themes like wildlife, landscapes and colorful patterns open up a whole new range of options. And if nothing, framing your kids' doodles and sketches is always a winning idea.

Dining room

After the living room, this is that one space where your family ends up spending time together every day. While the most popular option is photos or paintings of fruits and other food items, it has also become somewhat of a cliché. Instead, try going for something that symbolizes togetherness, well-being and family. Can be pieces of beautiful typography, portraits, graphic design or a play on colours.

Guest room

There's one cardinal rule when choosing art for this space: it should make your guests feel cozy, comfortable and at home. Go for warm colours and pick a theme that is universal, like music or nature. Bottomline is, it should feel welcoming instead of confusing or intimidating, all the while feeling like an integral part of your home.

So from where to source all these artworks?

Now that you have an idea of what you need, the question is how to go about sourcing them. You can always pay the galleries in your town a visit to see if they have something that suits your needs. You can even go online to check out various online outlets that sell various kinds of artworks. If there's any specific artist or photographer you like, you can try looking for works on their websites. A lot of artists have their own online stores nowadays. Apart from these, there are new services like art-on-subscription that let you explore and experience different artworks for a small subscription amount every month. "Homes should be as vibrant and dynamic as those who live in them. When you don't have to invest in buying an artwork but can instead keep refreshing them at regular intervals, the possibilities are endless," says Rahul Singh Yadav, Head of Designat Floating Canvas Company, India's first art-on-subscription service.
