Matching Art to Your Bachelor Pad Interior - Ultimate Top Tips

Looking for some interior design inspiration? Well look no further as we explore some top tips to help you to tie in art to your bachelor pad and create the perfect space by fusing striking modern art prints and classic home styling to achieve ultra-suave results

Decide on a Theme That Reflects Your Taste

A great starting point for any interior design project is to begin researching a number of different styles that interest you and how they differ from one another. Rustic, industrial, contemporary... the list goes on and the possibilities are endless. A common challenge is deciding upon one unique design style that will best complement your existing art collection, however, some may also enjoy the idea of combining elements from several different styles to create their ideal look. A basic understanding of varying design styles can go a long way in developing your own personal ideals, giving you a much clearer image of how you envision your new home interior looking alongside your existing furniture and art.

Choose a Colour Palette That Has Depth and Character

Choosing your colour palette is another fundamental step in ensuring you seamlessly match your interior to your art collection. Colours can be used to define and connect spaces and objects whilst highlighting more interesting details of your home. Through the use of colours you can set the mood and atmosphere of a room, making a space appear bright and airy or warm and cosy. A top tip when deciding upon your colour palette is to look at your existing art and furniture for inspiration, repeating colour from the art and furnishings increases its impact within the room. Try to balance your chosen colour palette with the same colours within the art, this helps spread the influence of the painting throughout the room and creates an eye-catching focal point.

Arrange Your Art on a Stunning Background

Choosing the right wall colour can provide the backdrop for an entire room and accentuate your art collection, but deciding how best to arrange and display your art is an equally important task. You can start by testing different arrangements on the floor to get a clearer idea of how you want to display your art without hammering lots of unnecessary holes into your freshly painted wall! A popular way of displaying artwork is to group lots of pieces together, creating a large feature wall. Obviously, this will require an extensive art collection which you may not have at this stage, but you can always buy art online, visit a local gallery or a homewares store to grow your collection.

Repeat Patterns and Accentuate Art Pieces With Gorgeous Furnishings

Let the lines and colours within your selected piece of art or simply in the architecture of your home flow into the overall style of your room. Repetition of colours and patterns throughout a space can help accentuate your artwork and enhance its overall impact to create a considered and put together feel. Using your furniture to complement artwork can also contributes to or influence the theme of a room with stand alone pieces or sets adding to finished look. You can even use artwork to draw attention to a particular element in the room that you would like to enhance, such as a lovely marble mantle-piece or a wooden panelled contemporary wall.

Design Your Room Around a Focal Point

Designing around a focal point is a great way to set the tone for your space and bring everything together. When choosing your artwork or other focal point such as a rug, choose a piece that has colours you want to repeat throughout the room. In this example, the focal point contains light greens and blush pinks, which the designers carry through with accessories and furniture. However, note that they do not just use these two shades but balance them out with neutrals to keep the room feeling fresh. These neutrals can be variations of whites, creams, greys and nudes as well as textures such as woods, coppers and brass. Finally, add depth and character with a one more colour (in this case navy blue), which will break up the room and keep it from looking too uniform and perfect.
