Looking for a piece that you absolutely love... but that also fits into your decorating scheme? Look no further. Whether you dwell amid Mid-Century Modern, Nordic Minimalism, Industrial-Chic, Eclectic Bohemian, Coastal, or Traditional/Transitional environments, we've assembled handy and oh-so-chic collections of art specifically tailored to fit your style.
Mid-Mod design made a huge comeback about a decade ago, as wistful nostalgia mixed with a pragmatic penchant for clean, sleek, no-frills design. If you go gaga for retro Eames furniture, Mad Men, and burnt umber, look for art influenced by the movements of Futurism, Op Art, and Abstract Expressionism.
If you favor neutral hues, airy open-floor plans, the smart marriage of form to function, and respite from visual clutter, stick to artworks that share your simple, design-savvy sensibility. Minimalist artists like Donald Judd, Robert Morris, and Dan Flavin—with their geometric forms, industrial materials or readymades, and physically dominating structures—aren’t the only artists to look to. Works that are neutral in tone, black-and-white, or monochromatic add interest to your walls without cluttering up the crisp, clean vibe.
If you would have trouble locating a single spot devoid of color and texture in your home, than your rocking the Boho vibe. The key here is to mix and match artworks from different time periods and styles. If you’re looking for a good place to start, try works involving colorful figurative painting, irregular textiles, patterned abstractions, and florals.
A beach house should feel coastal without being over-the-top nautical. (No buoys or fishing nets please!) Go for beachscapes, vivid blue hues, and sailboats to make your summer home feel light and festive without sacrificing sophistication or elegance. And don’t forget to add some flare to your beach towels while you're at it!
Love rusty found objects, exposed brick, ductwork, repurposed furniture, letterpressed graphics, and metal accents? Just because you live in a former factory building doesn’t mean you need to live with mass-produced art. Look for original artwork involving maps, diagrams, vintage signage, and big, blocky letters to complete your Industrial Chic loft.
Traditional and Transitional
Design styles that are traditional and transitional (a mix of traditional and modern) stick to the timeless classics. But just because you live in a Victorian or Colonial home doesn’t mean the artwork you live with needs to be all ducks and horses. We’ve put together a collection of black-and-white photographs, pastoral landscapes, and stately sculptures and design objects to perfectly complement your traditional or transitional décor.
