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

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.”
