Choosing Neutral Art

Black

While I love colorful art, sometimes it’s best to go neutral in a room with other vibrant accents. Lately I’ve been so drawn to dreamy, soft nature-inspired art. I like how it balances and tempers the bright aspects of a room.

Art.com asked me and a handful of other design bloggers to share some of my favorites for a gift guide. I broke down some of my choices here by the color of the undertones. You know how I’m always going on about color temperature balance? Well for me that goes for art as well, especially more neutral art.

I always like to find color temperature balance in a room. If your walls are a cool gray, with blue undertones, try adding a piece of art with warmer, more brown or yellow undertones.

Or, if you’re renting and your walls are builder’s beige, try something with a bit more blue in it.

And true black works with all temperatures and should be mixed in, in healthy doses!

PS I’m trying to not buy that swan print, but there’s a 15% off deal on art.com right now, so I don’t think my resolve will last long.

PPS How are you guys? Sorry for not posting yesterday – we are nursing some serious colds around here. bleck.

  4. So glad you posted about art – I'm struggling to find something for our entry way… thinking abstract… made the mistake of thinking my kids could paint something glorious… not so much. Now I'm back to scouring the internet for inspiration!

  5. Could you post a link to the beautiful bird print? I'm dealing with a serious case of renter's beige walls! And that looks like just the right thing!

  6. Definitely get the swan- stunning composition. I woke up a with a scratchy throat this morning too! Feel better!

  7. Selecting art is an "art" in itself, lol! I think you're right about going neutral when there's a lot of distracting color around.

    I thought I should tell you that awhile ago I pinned your "cleaning" schedule and so far over 2900 people have repinned it.

    I can't remember if I asked your permission to pin it so now that I've DONE it, I figured I'd ask if that's o.k. with you?! Especially since more people keep repinning it every day. Man, they LOVE that thing!
