Art in any style is a welcome enhancement to a home. In addition to adding beauty, a piece of modern art can create drama, interest and emotion in a room. The colors, shapes, brushstrokes and composition evoke a feeling, with their movement, energy and form.
Modern art most often is abstract, but sometimes it’s figurative, depicting visual reality. Modern art can be created in any medium in most any size and shape. It can be calming or energizing, monochromatic or brimming with color.
Often people add art as the finishing touch to a room. Another very effective design strategy is to start the look of a room with one dramatic piece of art, then plan the room’s style, furnishings and color around it.

And think about it – the most prominent piece of modern art in a room can be something we don’t even think of as art – such as a dramatic rug, a sculptural chair, a striking chandelier or an unusual coffee table.
Focus your rooms with a piece of modern art this season. It will reflect your personality and pull a room together beautifully. Modern art can transform a room from ordinary to extraordinary!
