The Impact of Art In Your Home
An important element to any room is artwork, which can make a meaningful impact in your home. Whether splurging on a statement piece by a contemporary icon, or scooping up more affordable works at your local community arts center, the benefits of having art in your home are plentiful.
Galleries, both near and far, provide a myriad of options, styles, and budgets, so whether you’re investing in original one-of-a-kind art pieces, photography, prints, or sculptures, there are a lot of options to choose from.
In the Colorado area, we work with many galleries including Rule Gallery, Michael Warren Contemporary, Robischon Gallery (Denver), Harvey Preston Gallery (Aspen), Korologos Gallery (Basalt), Skye Gallery (Aspen), Lawson Fenning (LA). All of these galleries present new, original work by talented artists from around the country.
Our team has the pleasure of working with Colleen Irvin of Irvin Art Advisory. Colleen is an artist and art consultant and has supported our efforts to expand our reach and resources to work with more galleries and artists.
"Art is not an afterthought. It is an integral part of your home and life...We realize the need for the artwork to reflect the level and the sophistication of the home.” --Colleen Clare Irvin, Irvin Art Advisory
Here are a few ways art can make a considerable impact in your home:
Art Adds Color
By choosing complementary or contrasting colors, the presence of art can bring balance and harmony to any room or an intentional discord. It can complement and enhance the interior architecture, style and design. The choice of artwork is important here, especially if the art is a focal point in the room. Since this is your home, you want to live with the art and feel comfortable in your space.
Art Adds Personality
The artwork you choose in your home reveals who you are! It can speak volumes about you. It can represent a part of your personality, history, interests, and heritage. What does the art in your home say about you? Art can bring more life in your home and express who you are to others.
Art tells a story and encourages dialogue and conversation. If you enjoy entertaining, the art in your home will surely be a topic of conversation. Some things to consider before making an investment: Do you like the story the art is telling? Is this a story that you wouldn’t mind sharing with each new guest?
Sets a Mood
Whether it’s a vibrant family room, a serene office, or a welcoming foyer, Art undoubtedly sets a mood to be experienced. It becomes a part of your everyday life. The artwork in your home is your friend and, at times, even a confidante! Art can conjure emotions, inspire us, and ignite us to take action.
Art Sparks Joy
There have been many studies on the impact of art on your mental and physical health. Art can decrease stress levels, improve critical thinking, and relieve mental fatigue. Most importantly, it can spark joy for you on a daily basis.
We believe that art provides meaning, depth, and personal style to an interior. Selecting and curating art for your home can be challenging, which is why we’re here to support the process. We represent our clients and specify and purchase artworks on their behalf.
One of our primary objectives is to develop a clear understanding of our client's art needs and interests; and tie that to the interior design of their spaces in a meaningful way. Contact us today to learn more and to bring artwork into your home!
