Ideas for Decorating with Fine Art Prints

By: Maigida
While one person's idea of what fine art prints are might not match the opinion of another person, the fact remains: you can certainly create some beautiful décor by adding a few prints. No matter what you think constitutes fine art; you can certainly use some decorating tips to make sure that you're making the most of your fine art prints.

In the dining room, you will find the perfect setting for using fine art prints in your home. Since this tends to be a more formal area for eating, you can use traditional fine art images to surround your eating table in style. Try using subtle prints that add color to the room, but not too many vibrant colors as you want eating time to be calm and relaxed. Prints from the impressionistic period are good choices for this room, as in the water lilies of Monet or other such artists. Look for images that might show delicate images like flowers and nature scenes to help in setting the mood.

For your living room or main entertainment room, you can choose fine art prints that are a bit bolder in color and style.

You want to add energy and life to this room so that people feel happy to be there. Try choosing brighter colors and interesting patterns and images that will attract attention. When you have new people in this room, it always helps to have an instant conversation starter - and your print can be what starts everyone talking. You might also want to choose something that is larger in size so that it creates a focal point for your room and adds to the overall décor.

When it comes to the bedrooms in your home, fine art prints will probably vary in terms of style and color. You want to be sure that you're choosing prints that are indicative of the mood that you want the room to have as well as the personality of the person that sleeps there. Instead of focusing just on the colors of the prints, try to imagine what this picture will look like over the years and whether it will still be enjoyable or interesting to the person that uses that room.

And in the bathroom, you can use fine art prints to liven up what is usually a dull space. Try adding life to the walls with fun images and pictures as well as scenes that you can look at again and again. You might want to coordinate the prints with a color that's in your decorating theme or one that is in the shower curtain or towels. You may also want to stick to soothing scenes of beaches or waves to help keep a calm mood in this room.

With fine art prints, you can add style and class to any room in your home. And though you may not agree on what constitutes fine art, your guests will certainly know good taste when they see it.
