When decorating a home with artwork, a lot of people choose pieces that exactly match the color palette of their home. There are many theories on this topic, and people come to this with very strong opinions!
Understandably, if they have recently finished a refurbishment project – either on a new home, or doing up an old one – then they will have spent a good amount of time and money on furnishings, paint or wallpaper. They would also have spent hours pouring over catalogs and in home improvement stores matching window treatments, blinds, furniture, and soft furnishings to their chosen color scheme.
Not surprising then, that they extend this “must match” attitude to artwork. They assume that if the walls are pale pink, for example, then the artwork must be a shade of pink too, especially one that matches any cushions or rugs in the room. Well, experts say that if you’ve been trying to match artwork color to the room, it’s possible that you’ve been doing it all wrong.
