Pump Up Your Walls With Abstract Art

Have you ever hopelessly searched for the perfect piece of art for a room, only to end up at a dead end, with nothing that inspires you, let alone something that would make your room pop with an oomph that only amazing art can achieve? Yeah, me too.

There is hope, however. Sometimes a distinct image can take away from what’s already happening in your room, or even a beautiful scene you might have outside your window when you need something to emphasize your awesome sense of style and taste. That’s a job for abstract art, and you have a lot to choose from in this case!

Monochromatic Abstract Art

Large and in charge. This piece flows really well right into the furniture as the greys come together down below. The piece is interesting, modern and unique, which makes me think the homeowners of this spot are all these things as well! [Via Cheryl Wasilow Art]

Like inverted watercolor wings, these two pieces could not be seen apart. They are part of an artistic statement as a whole, and they perfectly join the two white chairs below them with furry pillows. The textures in this room are brought to life with these paintings. [Via Between Your Ears Blog]

A neutral piece of art is a great way to keep a space looking minimalist, and still have some complexities. In a cool space, the taupes and browns in this painting bring warmth and invite a guest to take a closer look at the texture in the artwork. [Via Cheryl Wasilow Art]

Colorful Abstract Art

There is almost no colour in this vignette, with the exception of the color coming from the painting. The artwork stands out in a sea of neutrals, and yet it is tied in well with small items such as an art book and a smaller piece next to it. [Via Little House Blog]

In a minimalist and industrial space, color isn’t often seen, but it can be a warm and inviting welcome. Such is the case with this bright cobalt blue piece which, though it’s a cool color, brings a warmth to the space, especially when next to a large plant. [Via Cheryl Wasilow Art]

Modern meets classic. In a room with such detailed mouldings, a dark and modern leather couch is unexpected. The abstract painting almost looks as though it’s a classic landscape, melting in the heat of the sun – so again, classic meets modern. And it totally works! [Via Art by Oak]

Abstract Art with Touches of Gold

Yes, gold needs its own category because it’s THAT awesome! In this painting, the golden hues are not shimmery, but are definitely present and most definitely warm up this home’s entrance. Also, to have it leaning on a bench which has similar colors to the painting really makes the work look like it belongs in the room functionally, rather than just being there as a decorative piece.

Let’s talk about gold leaf and how amazing it is! This piece literally has one tiny piece which is grey and cool like its surroundings, and everything else is warm and bright. The gold leaf ties in ever so perfectly with the metallic tones on the mirror and the urn beneath it. [Via Live Love DIY]

Were you an abstract art nonbeliever? Well, hopefully not anymore! In the interest of keeping it real, I never used to understand abstract art, but seeing pieces in homes rather than just in big rooms in art galleries makes a huge difference, because the piece fits in with a living space, which is way more special. Also, I love that it’s something you can DIY with your family or when feeling inspired on your own.
