Decorating your home is nothing short of Art. And when art meets home décor, that’s when the real magic begins! Nothing brings a beautiful home together more than some striking pieces of artwork here and there, adorning your walls. And if you are an art junkie, paintings and pieces of modern art may become the focal point of your design layout for your home.
Today we will give you a complete 101 on artwork around the house. We will try to cover the most important aspects of curating artwork for your home and how to go about bringing the best out of them.
Selecting artwork for yourself is of course a purely subjective standpoint. As we already know and as is true for any home décor item, your art is an extension of your personality, the proverbial “who you are”. But You can dare to push your boundaries and let the art you choose be a separate entity outside your personality. You can end up falling in love with a piece that may be so different from who you really are, and hey, that’s the beauty of it! The first rule of art is that there are no rules.
The kind of artwork that you hang in your bedroom would differ from what you put up in your living room.
Your bedroom is a lot like your escape from the world, your comfort zone to be your most authentic self, without restrictions. The art you select for this space should ideally be a reflection of JUST that! Subtle tones, relaxing strokes, basically anything that makes you comfortable in your own skin.
Your Living Room along with your dining space is the social zone- the place where you greet and meet with guests, throw parties, huddle with the family. The artwork here, would be conversational in nature. Something that brings out their most intriguing selves. Lively, refreshing yet comforting.
Your bathroom is not exempt from being privy to some art either. It is your most private zone that can be jazzed up as well. The kind of art you ideally should put up in a bathroom is serene and calm in nature, something organic and natural to its core.
Art sets the mood of your space just like the space itself is a canvas that paves way for the art.
There are certain basics that one must keep in mind while hanging art in their home. From the hooks, to the lights to the proportions, each detail is important so as to do justice to the artwork.
As a rule of thumb, your artwork should be 6-12 inches above the furniture, and if there aren’t any furniture, the centre of the artwork should be 60 inches from the ground. When hanging many small pieces together, following a general grid pattern gives the set cohesiveness. But of course, going off grid can also be fun if done, well, artistically!
The lighting up of your artwork is also a key point, without which the entire beauty of your art would be lost. First, it’s important to understand what sort of light can fully elevate your piece, and then it’s important to decide where and what sort of fixture would be ideal to bring out the light. Be it the frames to which the light is attached or to a different fixture, away from the painting, it all depends on the wall, the items around it and of course, the art itself.
Collecting art for your home is nothing short of a journey in itself. So, it’s essential to understand the various places to look through so as to stumble across that one piece, which can make a statement on your walls.
The best way to go about it is to visit art galleries in your city and explore different genres and styles. While the work at art galleries may come at a steeper price, but the kind of work you get to bring home really do speak for themselves.You can also look for a variety of artwork online, get art prints of famous paintings, canvas stretches and a whole lot of independent work which you probably won’t get anywhere else!
The other more exciting thing to do is to drop off at informal exhibitions in cafes and pop up studios. It’s the best way to discover the work of struggling artists and they come at way more affordable prices as well. And if you have a friend, colleague or someone you know of who is an artist, in or out of your circle, encourage and sustain them and take a piece home.
While selecting an artwork and propping it up on your walls is an important aspect of contemplating décor layout, your other home accessories are just as integral to put it all together. Be it that one statement vase, those warm lamps or glassware around the counter tops, each piece plays a part in substantiating your artwork while standing tall on their own.

Therefore, today we are going to present to you some of the hottest colour palettes that are trending this season and you can consider for your home.
When it comes to determining colour, Pantone is the go to reference. For the year 2016, Pantone released two beautiful pastel shades called Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue. Together they created a peaceful yet charming combination, hence soon becoming a popular colour palette. For the upcoming year 2017, Pantone has predicted an array of colours and combinations that we can expect to create a buzz. We’ll talk about a few of them that absolutely caught our eyes.
At Ease Palette
The At Ease colour palette is a brilliant mix of both earthy and delicate colours. The feel of the colour palette will at once make you feel centered and breezy. It is perfect for living rooms that leave a space for conversations. Things like succulents and vases would look perfect as the central decor items to bring out the most of this combination.

This colour palette will shine the brightest in a room. A perfect place where you expect a lot of activities and parties to take place.

Choosing the right source of light with the help of quaint lamps or candleholders can bring out the perfect ambience this colour palette tries to conjure.

Notice how the use of white decor items compliments the colour tone.
The Composed palette is all about deep earthy colours and jewel tones. This bedroom that has been constructed according to the palette, thereby giving out a mysterious yet reassuring vibe. Also, it exudes an aura of serenity combined with the right amount of luxury.
Are you aware of the term “Subdued Drama”? No? Well we just invented it because that’s exactly the kind of aura the Confident Palette gives off. The bold and rustic colours mix together to give off a sultry and sublime effect, without much effort. This Kitchen area has been done up with the colours of the palette and it has just the right amount of extravagance and fun! Also, pairing it with funky glassware and crockery will add the right amount of jazz to this palette.
Apart from these wonderfully exciting colour palettes, one particular colour has absolutely made us go weak in the knees and that is Copper Pink!If smartly and modestly used, especially on your metal arrangements, this colour can add the right dash of class and finesse to your delicate surroundings.
These colour palettes are bound to make you dizzy with ideas and an influx of creativity. The best way to choose what suits you most is to calmly flip through each option and narrow down to what comes closest to your ultimate vision for your home.

You might not realise this, but change is necessary not only in your very essence of being but also the place you live in, that is, your home! The things you decorate your house with or use around the household everyday not only add to the beauty but also define your evolution as a person. But we realise that it takes a little push to get things going, so here is a list of 10 signs, which are screaming out to you that you need to redecorate!
Classy with Glassy
Do you catch yourself inching for the red plastic cups for every other house party that you host? Stop right there, take a U-turn and walk right away. Those cups are not only harming the environment (let’s pretend you care for a sec) but are a constant hassle that can be easily avoided if you just invest in some uber-cool beer glasses. They also send out a message that you’re super fun with the right amount of Classy.
Ditch the past!
We realise that vase was a house-warming gift from your uncle’s daughter’s niece’s best friend’s fiancé, and you absolutely loved it from the moment you set eyes on it. But it needs to go! That crack you tried to cover up is not working, and we sincerely advice you to put it in storage and get a new artsy vase for yourself. If not for yourself, think of the flowers!
Gardening is not your forte.
After putting to rest the umpteenth plant that has become a martyr under your reign, we don’t have to spell out that gardening is best left for anybody who isn’t you. So go for those elegant mini succulents, which are anything but alive and see your gardening skills go off the charts.
Uncork in style!
It’s high time you stop trying to pull that old party trick of uncorking a wine bottle with anything that is not a cork-screw. Put away the knife, the make shift uncorking device, save your teeth for dessert and invest in a sexy cork-screw that clearly gives out the impression that you understand how to live in style.
Not a Wax Museum
Every time there’s a blackout and you rush for a candle, you forget all about the mess that’ll be left behind. It’s not pleasant to scrub off wax nor is it justice for your floors and beautiful furniture. Sleek yet efficient candle-holders solve all the problems and they also add to the character of your home.
Light it up!
We understand you court darkness from time to time, but that’s no reason to keep your home drab and dull. Get your hands on some elegant lamps to jazz up your den to create a soothing aura of warmth.
Beat Blues with Juice
Monday morning blues is hard on all of us. A fresh glass of juice helps kick-start the day in a less hostile manner (we’re hoping). You can elevate the juice drinking experience with a cool glass like this or at least try to create a sense of happiness as Monday prepares to suck the life out of you!
Remember how you keep running into loose change every time you’re vacuuming because you keep them lying around wherever? Well no more of that! A fashionably punk piggy like this must come to your rescue to keep all your change in one place with ease.
Little Black Vase
No, there is no such thing as too many hot vases. And you absolutely need one item around the house that can match the colour of your soul (we merely jest, of course!).
JUST DO IT
You know you’ve been lazy. Telling yourself you’re a minimalist is just another way of escaping the tedious task of going shopping for home décor. But that’s where we come in with our fabulous website so that you can sit at home, kick back and manage to make your home look gorgeous with a flick on your touchpads!
