Statement Artwork

We’re almost to the end of the week, people!  Time to get excited and do the It’s-Almost-Friday Dance.  😉

A look that I love in almost any interior, any style, is a piece of statement artwork that pops from the wall and does all of the talking.  Like I’ve said before, me personally, I am really in love with neutral spaces; but my job by nature makes me appreciate all kinds of design.  A splash of personality in any interior is usually what makes it go from cookie-cutter-magazine-clipping to hey-someone-actually-lives-here.  Let’s look at some pretty pictures, shall we?  🙂

Here we have two colorful chinoiserie cabinets that are grounded by a statement piece — the black abstract art.  Black is great to use when you’re introducing bright colors to a space.  Tones it down!

How fun is this piece?  The room without it would be way too mute and dull.  But with the addition of this dotted canvas, it’s fun, lively, and contemporary.

While I don’t find this interior to be incredibly inviting, just look at the amazing contrast here.  The artwork makes it.  The color palette chosen for the piece really sets the mood for the space.  Just think of how different the room would look with something brighter.

Check out that ceiling!  This definitely counts as artwork.  Speaking of which… I need to go to this cafe pronto.

What some would consider a cold interior is warmed up in this entryway with a piece featuring reds, oranges, and bits of blue and purple.  It absolutely draws you forward into the space.  I would like to see more color in the other artwork, though!  Perhaps there is more at some other angles that we can’t see here?

We’ve got statement wallpaper and statement artwork going on in this dining room, but it works!  The wallpaper is busy and neutral while the art is colorful and simple.  A great way to mix — it looks effortless and chic.

Statement artwork doesn’t always have to be colorful, sometimes it can just make you laugh.  This piece works well with the monotonous color scheme, yet provides a bit of humor to the space.  This is a piece of art that will be talked about — thus, making a statement.

What kind of statement artwork do you like best?  Colorful?  Wordy?  Black and white?

xoxo, Maria
