Have you ever thought that a small painting placed in the right space could bring a touch of colour and uniqueness to your room? And we are not talking about a gallery wall where you group together several small artworks, prints, photos or other collectables, but one or two little cute paintings on a narrow wall in the hallway for example. Of course, they can be placed anywhere, no matter how big or small the space is, but they may look more effective enhancing a dark corner or a shelf.
The fact that they are not ‘in your face’ kind of artworks, but rather discreet, could be an advantage, just like a little treasure that needs to be discovered. Such a painting can always put a smile on your face whenever you lay your eyes on it; it could be an interesting feature to be admired by your guests who will wonder what else will they discover in your décor?
At Art2Arts, we have a few small paintings lined up for you that have all the ingredients to be part of the ‘cute’ trend in your home.
Abstract Flowers in Grayson Perry & Picasso Vases by Cyndy Cmyth
Let’s start our showcase with these two abstract floral paintings by Cyndy Cmyth. Measuring just 8 x 8 inches each, you can put them side by side, one above the other or in two different spaces in your home. One could be placed on a shelf with house plants, books and other collectables and one can enhance a dark hallway. The advantage of a box canvas is that it doesn’t need framing if you want to hang it or you can simply put it on any surface and it won’t fall. Also, the shades of blue, white and purple with a hint of gold give them a contemporary look. In today’s trend in interior design when the advice is to give up magnolia and replace it with white so the colours stand out beautifully, these paintings could be just perfect!
Organic Pears by Alena Rumak
Who says that the kitchen doesn’t need art? Here at Art2Arts HQ, we think it does. It may sound like a cliché to recommend still life paintings with fruits, beverages and food for the kitchen or dining area, but the truth is that it works! Any space looks better with art and yes, we know that art doesn’t need to match the sofa (or the cooker in our case), but at the same time, it’s OK to hang art that is relevant to the room and these pears by Alena Rumak are simply too juicy not to be shared.
Yellow Poppies Field by Cinzia Mancini
Look at this gorgeous round canvas by Cinzia Mancini depicting a field of yellow poppies. Unusual shapes could bring a unique dimension to your space that everyone will notice (and hopefully talk about). Yellow could be a daring colour to consider for your home, but just like you may choose yellow flowers for your vase, why not choose it for your wall too? Yellow accents are so on trend at the moment and they look great in a white and grey décor, in a room with lots of wood as well as in a green or blue décor. See how versatile this colour is?
Boxer by Jing Tian
We can’t leave out animal lovers and this artwork by Jing Tian created in ink and watercolour could be just perfect. As it is created on paper (perfect surface for watercolour) it requires framing but this is often a good thing. Not only you can choose your own style of framing (and many art critiques do say that a framed painting always looks better), but putting the painting under the glass protects it from damages.
Magic Touch by Pamela Rys
Our showcase couldn’t be complete without an abstract painting and “Magic Touch” by Pamela Rys could give your space precisely that: a magic touch. Blue and purple go so well together and the texture gives the artwork a tactile dimension. The 3D effect in artwork is so on trend at the moment that we think it is here to stay. Same with purple by the way.
