The majority of today’s customers are looking for a mixture of photography, modern landscapes and abstract art to decorate their walls.

When designing a room, or a showroom, select artwork that incorporates more intense versions of the colors already in the space as well as a contrasting color, to add small pops of brightness. If the walls are painted a pale blue, choose an art piece that has deeper, richer shades of blue and bright pops of its complement, orange.

To make the artwork stand out against the walls and other furnishings you should always pair warm, bright accents with a cool room and cool, bold accents with a warm room.
