Incorporating art into your house is the key to differentiate a house from your dream house, the one seen in pictures on Instagram or Pinterest.

It is true that not everyone loves the huge pieces of art that takes a large part of the living space, but even the smallest and most subtle things can mean a lot and can make a difference in the way you and those who cross your threshold perceive space, so this is why art is so important in interior design.

Art makes our interiors special, this is a truth. But it is equally true that not everyone can afford or imagine a piece of art in their home. This basically means that those who can are automatically different from the rest and that their interior is distinct from the interiors of their friends, family or neighbors. Including in your home a single piece of art – a painting, a sculpture, a framed photo or an art construction –  will set you apart from everyone else and instantly turn your home into something special. All you have to do is learn how to choose an appropriate piece of art and you will create a noteworthy atmosphere in the shortest time.

Art as a focal point

Every room needs a point of interest, something that will attract the attention of visitors at a glance. The best way to do this is by adapting a piece of fine art that needs to be properly positioned and highlighted, and anyone stepping into that room will notice it. Moreover, this solution is not only attractive from an aesthetic point of view, but also practical: most people have problems decorating the interior and arranging an interesting central point, and adapting a piece
of art makes this much easier. All you have to do is find an empty wall, a corner where you can install a pedestal with a sculpture, a coffee table on which to display an old object, and be confident in your choices“, explains Monica Andronic, interior design specialist at

Art projects your philosophy of life

Another amazing thing about art is how versatile it can be. Depending on the shape, size, technique and theme you choose, art adapts to your lifestyle, defines it and highlights your personality. Modern art – from digital prints and minimalist graphics to large photographs and 3D works – shows how contemporary and innovative you are, while an oil on canvas, or a watercolor, lithograph or pastel signed Ressu, Vânătoru, Petrașcu or any other like them show a more traditional side of life, more inclined towards established values, towards the composition of a collection. In short, art speaks for you and defines you, so exposing it is always a good idea.

Art emphasizes your creative side

Not all art in the house has to be expensive and created by famous artists – even the least creative people can create their own special pieces. In this way, art can highlight your creative side and confirm that you are a good photographer or that you have a talent for drawing / painting. It can also have a therapeutic role, you can find relaxation in the act of drawing, of sliding the brush on the canvas, maybe even of modeling in clay. Why not try to expose what your own hands can create and wait for the reactions of your friends? Every artist’s house is full of different pieces of art and that’s how it should be, so why not become an artist and present your creations?

When we arrange a house, we invest both material and emotional resources. We want it to be our dream house. We gather images of us and interiors we like. However hard we try, the implementation is never easy, and in the end, after buying the furniture and placing the curtains and carpet, the spaces may seem unfinished or incomplete. That’s why you need art and decorative objects to complete the room.

Art adds color to the room and helps us decorate it more appropriately, but it also introduces a touch of texture. So, whether you opt for a sculpture or a piece of wall art, it will bring the whole room together, creating an aesthetic reality pleasant to the eye. And that’s what we all need when it comes to interior design. Not everyone is a fan of art, they may consider it a field reserved only for experts, but if we look better, we certainly realize why art is so important and what kind of
change it can bring to our lives, so I invite you to step out of your comfort zone and give it a try!
