Fall Décor Design Tips:

Unique Ideas on How Art  Can Spruce Up Your Home This Fall


Sunflower Fine Art Gallery Garden City, NY  (10-7-08)
-- With summer days  about to fade into fall, and outdoor living slowly heading indoors, now is  the perfect time to liven up the dwelling you love to call home and prepare  for some good cocooning time.  Besides the cool, crisp air and  invigorating ‘sweater weather’ the fall provides us each year, the colors of  crimson, burnt orange, green, earthy brown and golden yellow are absolutely  vibrant and can be brought indoors in a big way.
 
With more time  being spent indoors as fall glides in, it’s the perfect time to refresh our  homes and liven up our walls in a way that mixes majestic colors with  breathtaking landscapes and fall scenes.  Many times, finding just the  right art can breathe life into a room that may have become hum-drum and  stale over the years.  SUNFLOWER FINE ART, an online & brick &  mortar art retailer, headquartered on Long Island, offers some great  decorating tips for the fall:

  • Don’t go  small:  One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make when selecting  art is going ‘too small,’ which can make a piece appear dwarfed. You’ve heard the term ‘bigger is better.’  In this case, it’s  right on the money.  Imagine what a bold piece of art can do for an  entire room. What’s great about ARTAISSANCE  pieces is that you can obtain an art selection on canvas up to 54” x 102”,  even if the original is much  smaller.
     
  • Don’t shy  away from color:  The trends in color this fall are bold, rich colors like mustard, reds and spicy oranges mixed with browns.  Find a landscape scene that incorporates these colors and pick great accent pieces  in chartreuse, red and yellow to play up the bold colors in your art. This can instantly breathe new life into a  room.

     
  • Consider  the right lighting for your art:  Draw attention to a favorite  piece of art with an accent light that plays up the bold fall  colors.

     
  • Cocoon  with color:  As you begin spending more time inside, inspire your  indoor spaces with art that’s cheerful and colorful.  All types of art,  including abstract images, will warm up your décor if they contain the  earthy, autumn tones you see when you look outside your  window.

     
  • Groupings  are back:  In the 70s, wall groupings were prevalent in homes  across the country, and the trend is making its way back.  Freshen up  your home this fall by hanging a matched set in a structured arrangement or  mix and match your favorite pieces in a random  configuration.

     
  •  Transform  a room with a few simple changes:  Purchase a new piece of art for  a primary spot, such as the space over a fireplace or sofa.  Buy a  couple of new pillows that complement the colors in the art, and suddenly  your whole room looks new.

     
  • Consider  seasonal art changes if you’re running out of space:  When you love  art, it’s easy to quickly fill every wall!  Why not consider season  changes for key areas in your home?  If you currently have a painting  of zesty sunflowers in a basket on a particular wall, consider purchasing an  autumn landscape to use in that same position for half the year.  It  keeps your home décor fresh and forever  up-to-date.

     
  • Change  wall colors for a dramatic affect:  Have you ever noticed how many  art galleries and museums change wall colors depending on the art that’s on  display?  If your home and furnishings are neutral, consider painting  one accent wall in a room with a different color, based on an interesting  color within a favorite painting that hangs on that wall.   The  right color background will make your art come to life.   

If an ‘art makeover’ is part of your fall décor design  plan, you’ll want to visit www.ArtThatFits.com to view a collection of over 2,900 images by more than 135 artists --  with a healthy collection of fall-inspired works, including landscapes and  color-rich abstracts.  Changing Seasons by Tim Howe is an  example of a fabulous fall landscape with vibrant colors. Other  fall-inspired pieces include Haven II by April Richardson, Oak  Quilt, Garden Pieces I and Garden Pieces II by Bonnie Wilkins and Wetlands #11 by Kathy Kennedy.
 
Art can be  selected and ordered directly from SUNFLOWER FINE  ART and can be delivered to the gallery; ready for you to stop in and  select framing.  Another unique advantage to ARTAISSANCE is that you  can learn about your favorite artists via personal bios included on the web  site, all containing interesting information on the media they prefer to  use, how and why they became artists and inspiration for the pieces they  create.  And all artists’ pieces found on ARTAISSANCE are exclusive and  cannot be purchased anywhere else.  Eighteen genres of art are  available to suit just about any taste, and new artists and images are  continuously added to keep the ARTAISSANCE collection fresh and  contemporary.
