Selecting Art that Goes Together
Okay, so you've picked one piece of art you love. How do you find other pieces that will complement it and create a cohesive look?
We've put together a few tips below, but they're just a starting point. If the only thing the pieces you choose have in common is that you adore them, we think that's just peachy (see: rule number one).
Similar colors: Pick one to three colors, and pick artwork in a variety of styles with strong elements in those colors. Or, think about a color characteristic to carry through all the pieces in a room—like all brights, all black-and-whites, all sandy neutrals.
