Newsflash: "The Art Doesn't Have to Match the Sofa!!"

In this blog I'd love to share some reflections on the 'art' of choosing original pieces for your home. My experience working in the gallery and engaging with collectors has provided me valuable insights into the motivations behind their selections, as well as the hesitations that sometimes prevent them from embracing a piece they are genuinely drawn to. Interestingly, these reservations often revolve around concerns about the artwork not harmonising with their sofa or carpet!

So I'd like to highlight the fact that gone are the days of meticulously matching every hue in your living room to the colour of your sofa. It's time to embrace a new era of interior design—where bravery takes centre stage in your art choices.

Let's face it, your home is your sanctuary, and it should reflect your unique style, quirks, and personality. That's why we're here to encourage you to break free from the constraints of the past and dive into a world where art doesn't have to play by the rules.

Choosing art solely because you love it, not because it coordinates with every shade in the room, is the ultimate act of rebellion against the mundane. It's about letting each piece stand alone, creating an eclectic vibe that's unmistakably yours—a true representation of your individual style.

Original art has this magical ability to inject real personality into your space. So, here's a thought: what if, instead of overthinking every decision, you based your choices on a more emotional level? Ask yourself, does that painting bring a smile to your face? Does it evoke a feeling of upbeat happiness? These are the factors that truly matter—far more significant than whether it matches the sofa.

Imagine a home adorned with art that sparks joy, provokes thought, and tells a story unique to you. It's time to let go of the notion that everything must perfectly coordinate. Your space should reflect your passions and make you feel at home.

So, go ahead, be bold in your choices. Choose art that resonates with you on a deeper level. Your home deserves to be a canvas of your personal journey and experiences, and that's a masterpiece worth creating.

Happy Decorating! 🎨✨ JO
