My art on a brown wall in living room settings

Sometimes it's hard to imagine how artwork will look in your room. I made this photos today around 4 pm in Calligaris on King East. There was only light from the windows and some corners on the space were really dark. But fortunately these 3 pieces looked very good and had enough light exposure. There is visible glossiness of the aluminum surface and vibrancy of the colors. I did not add any saturation. I think artwork looks great.

Red Abstract Art Stimulates Body and Mind

Psychological research into a variety of colors has found some interesting and, in many cases, useful effects of looking at different colors and in some cases being surrounded by them. You may already know that blues and greens are calming, relaxing colors while more bright, aggressive colors are able to provide the opposite sensation. Yellow is said to boost the memory but also makes the viewer think more, while red has been said to cause some stimulation of both body and mind. Red can actually warm the body and increase the heart rate as well, but it may also cause higher blood pressure. As a result, if you are suffering from any illnesses that may be aggravated or worsened by those side effects, you may need to steer clear of red in your interior designs. One great way to use red, though, is in an exercise room or any other...

Wall Designs in Modern Interior Decor

With progress in print industry, metal work and engineering interior designers and artists can use wide spectrum of materials and forms working on interior design projects. Large wall art becomes increasingly complex and draw more attention. Today walls with designs are focal points of lofts and large apartments. Wall design has that 3d feel and works with whole room and furniture. Wall texture and color play important role too. I personally like grey, purple or red walls with exposed concrete or plaster. They work well with my pink and blue designs or with multi-color pieces.   I prefer large size art. If I stand in front of large piece I feel like my entire body speaks with colors and shapes. Pink and red energizes me and opens up my creativity. Combination of pink and blue is very inspiring. It feels like watching a distant ocean sunset on windy southern sky....

Abstract art influences your mood

I work with many interior designers and they often ask me to find an abstraction "...lots of orange... " because decor needs an accent element and its color sometimes is very predetermined. It’s a common knowledge that red, orange and yellow are energetic colors. Spaces with these colors make people act and think faster. They encourage conversation and open exchange. These colors are good for dining or family room. It will work great for public office and working space. Green and blue are considered soothing colors and good for quiet rooms and libraries. It may work as well for your bedroom. I personally prefer darker art for my bedroom and I think that this monochrome art collection encourages fantasy and contemplation. What color would you choose for your bedroom and living room? I had color collections on my site from very beginning on this page you can preview color collection...

Golden music Waves

Music inspired new orange, red and yellow piece with accent blue line. I was listening to “Zeichen meines Lebens” by Klaus Schulze from “Historic Edition”. Cosmic and time traveling thoughts come to mind. Dark edges and bright center on top of dreamy brown and red background.

Example of High Contrast Print in a Bright Room

Room decoration with art prints is an interesting exercise! You can approach color selection from complimentary side or play along with established accent color. But how to deal with difference in light? Let’s set a design experiment: medium size room with normal 9 feet high ceiling. There is a bed in the middle and a large window looking out South-West. There is an empty wall between two doors. I want to put my art prints there :) Despite light color of the wall paint rear wall looks dark in afternoon or even most of the day if windows have shades or covered with drapes. Light and small art will be lost out there. Here is an example of a dark and high contrast print with very bright expressive light strokes. Red and orange continue general wall color hue and violet and pink work as a color accent. These prints can...

Why invest in decor?

Design influences our thinking and how we feel. People always have opinion about design. Some of you may have opinion about red color, some like bright rooms, some like dark and quiet interior. Entire branding of Apple is built on simple assumption that people want to interact with nice well design devices. Why not invest in interior design? It will align your feelings, make you either relaxed or organized. It doesn't need to be expensive. I promote investing in interior decor with art. There are two things you need to remember: 1) color your walls having plan about wall decorations you want to hang later. 2) don’t buy cheap stuff. Simple as that. Here is an example of decor with 2 sets of prints on glass. One concrete wall is not painted at all and another has a layer of primer. Prints on glass, especially tempered glass are ultimately indestructible....
