We’re back exploring more of the stunning details from our English Country Home, where timeless elegance and classic aesthetics meet. In this journal article, we’re taking a look at how art can elevate your home by adding interest and allure to even some of the most unique spaces. Join us as we break down the details of using art to create focal points, elicit emotion, embrace different art styles and how to use various sizes and scales.
No. 1 – Art as Focal Points
Incorporating carefully selected artwork as focal points in your home can transform any room into a captivating and interesting space. Whether it’s large scale art hung on a wall in a main living area or small scale art placed on a kitchen shelf, art can create a point of reference and bring interest to a specific space. One of the more unique moments within the kitchen of our English Country home was the art ledge we designed above the Ilve range. This art moment created a focal point in the kitchen and added interest above a usually blank space. Along with some original art pieces, we featured the Lady In Garden, Charcoal Figure and Hunter in a Landscape all available from our Market.
No. 2 – Creating Inviting Spaces
Adding art to utility type spaces such as a mudroom, laundry room or butler’s pantry adds a sense of comfort and warmth. Although these spaces might not be frequented by guests within your home, the feeling it creates even in a small scale form is inviting and fun. We featured On the Hunt in the mudroom, The Homestead in the laundry room, Still Pear in the kitchen hutch and Blue Botanical Three in the butler’s pantry.
No. 3 – Eliciting Emotions
Art has the incredible power to evoke emotions and set the mood in a room. The English Country office’s dark and moody walls come alive with the vividly expressive Society art piece, adding depth and character to the space while encouraging creativity and introspection. The tranquil large scale art Distant Reflection Two featured in the casual media room creates a sense of calm and relaxation. We had a little fun pairing the Gentleman Sketch with the Statler Secretary Desk for a bit of sophistication and stoic charm.
No. 4 – Embracing Eclectic Beauty
The custom kitchen hutch became a treasure trove of visual delights with the addition of the Brushed Portrait. This piece is as equally interesting as it is eclectic creating a bit of a juxtaposition with its hand applied gold leaf in the most peculiar of places. This piece featured alongside a set of vintage dishware and masculine stone balanced several styles into one interestingly stunning space. If you’re wondering, the paint color used for this custom hutch is Huge Blue by Farrow and Ball.
