How should artwork be incorporated into the home?
Start with the obvious - what do you love? Look around and see what inspires you. Perhaps contemporary paintings will beckon you - or perhaps sculpture or a mural. Art allows you to express yourself and transform your space. Above all, always choose what makes you happy.
Once you've decided on your style, what should you buy? I would recommend visiting a good gallery or meeting with an artist to get some inspiration and tips. As with all design, buy the best you can afford. Resist the urge to go to a mega store and buy a ready made 'collection'. Working with a reputable gallery will award you with a unique art collection that you will enjoy for years.
