Let’s Decorate with Art!
Colorful art can change the whole attitude of a room. Don’t underestimate the power of art to uplift your mood and the spirit of everyone in it. Art is good for your health and your home and you should always surround yourself with art that you love. Here are some great decorating ideas for incorporating my new red poppy art into your home decor.
Living Room Wall Decor

Art does not have to match the sofa
Proving that art does not have to match the soda– or anything else– Don’t you love the way the red poppy art pops against the pale blue living room walls? In this decorating inspiration, the wall art is displayed without a frame to give it a modern and contemporary feel while also solving the problem of a narrow space to hang art. There are some light blue tones in the artwork but the art is the only red in the room which makes the art a focal point and help anchor the room. If you are afraid to decorate with color, then art is a risk-free way to bring color into a room.
Art can move from room to room
One trick I like to do in my own home is to move the art around. The whole room can get a new look just by swapping pieces in the dining room for artwork in the living room or bedroom. Do you see how this art works in all three rooms? So never worry about choosing the perfect art for one room, just collect art that you like and it will work anywhere in the house.
Dining Room Wall Decor

to coordinate with the dark accessories. You can still hang it
without a frame in this setting… framing is a personal choice.
About the interior design
Karyl Pierce Paxton’s New Orleans interior is filled with picturesque painted furniture that flaunts its age. In her dining room, a French neoclassical-style dining table, circa 1800, wears its original paint. Pulled up to it are Louis XVI-style chairs upholstered in a silk from ABC Carpet and Home. Orange embroidered Indian silk curtains from the Silk Trading Company are sexy because they remind us of women’s silky lingerie. And yes, orange and red do go together and make for a very modern combination.
Mixing cultures in one room
When you decorate you can mix cultures in the same room. Don’t make your house like a Disney theme park where each room is a different culture. To Paxton, mixing cultures in the same room makes a livelier space. An Italian console holds a silver tea set from her grandmother as well as sculptures from New Guinea and Africa, flanked by lamps Paxton designed for the Pierce Paxton Collection by Savoy House.
Modern Wall Art
The original art in the room was swapped out digitally to show you how the poppy art would look in this eclectic dining room.

Berman used quieter shades of her palette in the guest room. “Even when I don’t use the same colors everywhere, I still like the room to feel connected. The bedroom should never feel like it’s in a completely different house from the living room—the whole house has to make sense as one.”

I love all the color that you have chosen.
WOW LOVE that pop of color! Especially in the first room

I love colourful art. It can brighten up a room and instantly add a fun flare.
I have been looking for a statement piece for our home. I love the bright watercolors and agree it does not need to match.
I love the walls in the last photo
I love the photo in the livingroom- ads the perfect splash of bold into a serene scene.

This is so wonderful – it always adds some live to the place!
I bought this really big piece of art that was full of great shades of blue. I put it in my dining room and accented everything with deep brown and silvery grey. I love it great tips. I like the living room the best only because its the color of my bedroom and that picture that I bought.
I think the artwork need not much the colors of the room but it may be better that it stands out in the background.
I like it in the dining room or the bedroom best, I think. I have moved art around in my home too and it works!
That bedroom though! So perfect
I love how one simple piece can make a portion of your home look extra nice.
I liked the dining room. I think the colors were a nice contrast. 2nd place would be the dining room. The painting looks really nice in both.
I love decorating my house. I usually change the pictures around to give it a different look. Living room is my favorite!
I love decorating with Art also it can be so inexpensive especially if you go to tag sales
i Love the Bed Room Art, this is a beautiful Artwork, great colors.
That is beautiful artwork. I love the colors and design.
I love the pop of color this poppy artwork gives any space. I have my living room painted white but have tons of art covering the walls. Very cool!
I like the first one. It totally pops out at you since the curtains and walls are similar in color.
My personal fav is the living room. Love the colors and accent pieces
I like the living room..it looks very open!
Moving art to a different spot always gives it a new and fresh look. Good article. I shared on my google+ page 🙂 http://www.google+/artbyjudiwarner
