Adding Art To Your Home In Unexpected Ways

March 4th, 2011

Bringing art into your home is a great way to add style to your space and enrich your home life. Different people are going to have different taste in art, but many are looking for creative ways to include art in their homes. Anyone can choose a painting and hang it on the wall. There is nothing wrong with this method of displaying art, but you may want to get even more creative with the works in your home. There are artists working in a variety of manners and producing art of all shapes and sizes. Sometimes, art is even functional. For instance, there are a number of lamps, piano lights and lanterns that double as art pieces. If an artist makes a piano light, you can use it to illuminate your space, while still offering a lighting display for everyone in your home to enjoy.

If you have decided to include lighting of this method in your home, you are likely looking at instruments too. The instruments can be viewed as art. Instruments played by famous musicians are also put on display and instead of being used, are viewed as art pieces. Even if you have a run of the mill instrument, you can still display it as art. For instance, if your child played the violin when they were small, consider framing this piece and displaying it as art. Just as you would share family photos and awards, you can display your child’s first foray into the arts.

Sculpture is another great option for art in the home. You can choose just about any piece for sculpture art. Shop for pieces specifically intended to be displayed as art or choose items that are utilitarian and unique. For instance, a decorative bowl is great for a kitchen display of produce. You can also incorporate art pieces into your furnishings. Consider buying a marble inlaid coffee or end table or a sink that has features a handcrafted bowl.

Stained glass is a favorite art piece of many and can create an entirely different look in a room. Stained glass is designed to hang in windows and while it can be lovely hanging on a wall or displayed elsewhere, it is at its most beautiful when the sun’s rays are streaming through the colorful panes of glass. You can replace traditional window panes with stained glass or you can double hang a window by having your usual weather tight windows and installing a sheet of stained glass on the interior hanging in front of the window. This is a great piece of art that provides art beauty indoors and out.

Finally, tapestries are a wonderful way to display fiber arts in your home. If you prefer a warm home with a feeling of soft coziness, consider a tapestry for your room’s artwork. Because this is fiber art, it provides a warm display and is not as harsh as some sculpture and glass art. Tapestries are intricate and lovely and are a great way to display art.
