Adding the very final touches to your living room or bedroom is often completed with the addition of artwork. Speaking from personal experience, choosing the right piece of art is an arduous task. Do you choose something that is subtle and willing bold with a voice of its own? 

Below, we have some suggestions from our wonderful experts which showcase a variety of different artwork, to satisfy even the most knowledgeable art critics. 

Seaside Scenery

Ah, the seaside. The place we long to be all year round. A shoreline always evokes emotions of purity and relaxation; a space we crave escaping to each day, away from the stressors and worries of daily life. It is only natural that such a piece of artwork would belong beautifully in any room of the house. Whether your setting is modern or classic, this scenery will blend perfectly into its walls and speak to you with sounds of the ocean every time you stare beyond the paint strokes.

Subtle Watercolours

A watercolour painting, with its dulled down hues and blended tones is perfect for a living room that is crying for something else. Generally better suited to a more classically styled room, a watercolour can sit proudly above an armchair or in a sitting room lined with shelves full of books. It carries that same light and hazy ambience like our daydreams and imagination.

Modern Simplicity

If you are having difficulty choosing between a shoreline landscape or city scene, then a modern piece of art may fit your requirements. Blurring the lines between reality and fantasy, a contemporary painting is open to interpretation by you and your guests. Fortunately, the choice in modern art these days is quite extensive. You can choose something that fits meticulously in with its surroundings, otherwise, something that makes a bold and hefty statement.

It is difficult to go past an image like this, it sends your thoughts into overdrive. Who lives here? What do they do? What secrets lie behind the ornate windows and behind the lush green trees? If you like art that raises questions, then a setting like this is perfect for your walls.
