It's That Time Again....Art-e-facts

I love doing these posts, as I've said before, because they so easily show you what a dramatic effect art has on a room and how easily one piece can change the mood. I wanted to present a larger variety of choices today, trying to appeal to as many different tastes as possible. This time I'm going to save my opinion for later, after I hear what you all have to say. I really enjoy reading each of your thoughts and views. It's just so interesting to see who chooses what and why. So, here we go...

Today's room is, again, from Nuevo Estilo . Very simple, minimalistic decor with bare walls. The perfect room for us to play with. :)


First up is Cafe Close-Up by Hooshang Khorasani. I literally tipped it on its side. I have a tendency to do this with an abstract piece when I see something different than what was intended.


Next up is the very well known Solitude by David Winston.


Here we have Destination Rome by Tina Chaden.



For a return to the abstract this is Snow Gum Tree Bark by Jason Edwards.


And last, but not least, Row of Music Records Germany by Panoramic Images.


So, you tell me. Which will it be?

I actually prefer it without any art.

Row of Music Records, for sure. The colors go very well, and the shape is perfect and a but unique. Love it!

I think horizontal over vertical. But all of them are wonderful.

GREAT post. thanks!

this is tough, but I'm thinking Cafe Close Up is my pic. I love the way the colors work.

Solitude is interesting, because in this room it does fit...it literally looks to me like you could step up on the bed and then walk right into the picture...I guess the wall color helps with that effect. Anyway, the subject matter fits...both the painting and the room have the same feel to me...

And I love the colors of the Destination Rome and I'm always a sucker for travel themes...

But yes, in the end I'm sticking with Cafe Close Up...it just feels like a great fit and I love the colors of it in this room.

I have thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of your comments and agreed with them all. I think it would be interesting to know what our choices say about out personalities. :)

In the end, my choice was the Gum Bark Tree. I liked that fact that it brought in a new color to the room (orange/copper), warmed it up and still reflected enough of the wine color in the throw and pillows to blend in.

This is great! Row of Records - FUN post.

I like the first one and the last one.
The first abstract painting seems to capture the pallette of the room, while the record covers brings in the colors, while adding a fun twist to it.

Fun project!

I say Solitude or the Records.

Row of Music. I don't like any of the others.

By majority, Row of Records it is!

Oh- this is fun!
I'm a interior designer and think you def should use the Roma picture!
Here is why:
1) Since the frame has a vertical setup it is lifting the room and create the feeling of more space. A horizontal frame would make, in this case, the room to be very wide because of the furniture's placing - and that is not correct according to Pythagoras theorem (well known within my profession)
2) The picture also picks up all the colors in the room very soft and nice, without drawing to much attention to it. (the room does not need a new color, that will only makes it messy, and the people who is visiting will not know were to fix the eye - which is extremely important for a pleasant and comfortable stay)
3) The Roma picture also create a perfect togetherness, and makes the overall picture of the room bonding.

BTW it is not my favorite motif, if I would choose only the art scene I would go with the first one, cafe close-up. :)
Have a great day!
