Change the personality of your room with art

Ever wanted to change the direction of a space in your home halfway through the decorating process? Or perhaps you have a room that you’ve partially furnished, but never really finished? Art is the perfect way to bring new personality into your space. And the great thing about our art options is that you could go in so many directions, depending on which pieces you choose. Art just has the uncanny ability to take a room in a new direction!

As an example, take our Sybil Settee. We love tailored, feminine feel it has, but see how the whole space transforms depending on the art we hang over it!

How Art Can Finish a Room

Bedroom with large painting

When designing a room, every designer and homeowner knows there are many layers. Of course there are the walls, floors, and windows. Then you have your large furniture pieces, and your lighting, and your rugs. You also have accessories and soft goods. And then finally you have your art pieces. All of these layers play a very important role in turning a room into a space you love. Oftentimes though, the art is one of the last pieces brought into the room, and we actually find it can be the most transformative layer of them all!

Just like a rug or proper lighting, artwork is an important layer in your decor. It brings color, texture and personality to a room. And because it’s a reflection of you, it adds that personal touch that makes it all the more meaningful, says Ballard Designs’ Art Buyer, Karen Fleenor.

Decorating with Architectural Mirrors

Architectural mirrors

There is not a designer alive who can resist a great mirror — the kind that commands the attention of anyone who walks into a room. That’s why we’re so drawn to architecturally inspired mirrors. In newer homes, where rooms are often blank slates, they add a distinctive patina and lend a sense of history. Inside older homes, architectural mirrors enhance the character of the home. In short, they imbue the same amount of style as any piece of furniture.
