Create an unforgettable entrance with Art!

Tips | Art

Can you clearly remember the moment you stepped into your favourite place?

First impressions are so important, which in a home starts at the entrance! Nothing sets the ambience better than works of art that reflect the personality of your household. So be brave with your art choices and choose something that will make that first impression truly unforgettable.

We have invited our good friends from Rise Art to share their expertise on creating an unforgettable entrance with art:

1. Capture the eye

A large, brightly coloured piece of work draws you into the house and lengthens or elongates the space depending on its orientation. Pick a strong, bold artwork that will grab attention, hold the eye and set the mood for the rest of the home.

2. A salon hang

A curated salon hang in a corridor entrance brings interest and life to what could otherwise be considered a mundane space. When putting together a salon hang it’s a good idea to lay out the works of art on the floor and plan where everything will go.

3. Open plan

A lot of new homes are open plan with no specific entrance hallway. In these spaces art can clearly designate and divide the space without walls.
