Although there are no firm rules, choosing the perfect living room art can be more difficult than you think and these tips can help. Firstly, any painting or picture should be the appropriate size for the space; too large or too small just won’t look right. Before even looking at art, determine how large a picture you need. A large and striking painting will become the focal point of your room. Many homeowners like to choose colors that match their existing color scheme, and in most cases a matching style makes sense. A contemporary print looks better in a modern open plan living room than in a rustic or vintage themed room. Take into account the lighting in your room; you may need to place any art where it is best lit, or adjust the lighting in your living room to best display it.
