Art as a Focal Point

 Art as a Focal Point

A strong focal point is important in any room, and timeless rooms are never without them. Much like symmetry, focal points are important because they're pleasing to the eye and give it a place to rest. Sometimes focal points occur naturally in a room, such as with built-in mantle pieces or large windows, but if your room doesn't have one don't fret: focal points can also be created with artwork.

 

"There are two things that make a room timeless: a sense of history and a piece of the future."— said Interior designer Charlotte Moss captured by Elle Décor, April 02

A strong focal point is important in any room, and timeless rooms are never without them. Much like symmetry, focal points are important because they're pleasing to the eye and give it a place to rest.

Sometimes focal points occur naturally in a room, such as with built-in mantle pieces or large windows, but if your room doesn't have one don't fret: focal points can also be created with artwork.

A large architectural photograph of a classic building can complement the colors of the room, and the large-scale glossiness of a photograph brings in a fresh feeling.


By the same token, using modern and contemporary art makes any traditional interior feel rooted in today, no matter the time period of the furnishings.

Here are great examples where artwork updates a room by juxtaposing styles.
