"I have always wanted my colors to sing" Paul Delvaux

Start with the Art
Just like last year, spring has arrived in a glory of tulips, fresh mint, as well as the bloom of cherry and magnolia blossoms
But 2021 is quite a different year- after spending most of the last year of our lives sequestered at home, we are now seeing and using our homes so differently.
Perhaps, like me, you are looking for ideas
to refresh your space and shake things up!
The walls in your home are filled with possibilities— a few new paintings or rearranging your artwork can transform your mood and the feeling and energy of your space.
See how different artwork completely transforms a room in this video, What Artwork Speaks to You?
Often artwork is treated as an afterthought- it happens nine times out of ten on the jobs the All Together Art crew are hired for.
The final coat of paint has dried and all of the newly upholstered furniture has been artfully arranged and the walls are still blank! At this point there is barely any creative energy or budget left to take care of the focal point of the room- the Blank Walls.
By relegating art to the side lines, you’re missing out on an amazing design opportunity. When chosen thoughtfully, the right painting can bring all of the elements together and add that extra magic.
Are you ready for a change?
Artwork Provides An Instant Color Palette
Choosing a color palette can be one of the most daunting facets of designing your interiors. The amount of varying shades of paint that are available can seem absolutely endless (which I do love) but it can be difficult to narrow down the possibilities into the colors that best fit your vision for the space.
Leave the paint chips behind and focus on searching for artwork instead. Once you find an artwork that you absolutely love, you can use that piece as the inspiration for your room’s eventual color palette. Your first step is to pick out two or three shades from the artwork that you’d like to incorporate into your decor. Choose the dominant color, as well as a few additional shades that you’d like to pull out as accents like pillows and lamps.
One of the the most basic principals of interior design is that every room needs a focal point, or a single design element that will instantly draw the eye into the space. When choosing a artwork to be a focal point for your space, the most important consideration is finding the right scale for the room. An artwork that is too small will get dwarfed by the surrounding furniture and a piece that is too big will look as though it is spilling over. Make sure to take measurements of the wall space.
Here's a tip: if you are having trouble figuring out the ideal size, get a roll of painters tape cut it to the size you think is good and tape it onto the wall in question. You will quickly know if your size choice is appropriate because you will see it in the context of the entire room
My Website allows you to use a Virtual Wall Preview to test out the size of images in a variety of settings
(featured below the image of your choice)
Also try the Live Room Preview on your phone, this allows you to envision that painting ON YOUR OWN WALL!
Remember that not all wall art is created equal.
While some pieces may be two-dimensional paintings, you should try to find art in a variety of different mediums like canvas, paper, metal, textiles and wood to help bring various textures and energy into the environment.
Each print option offers a different style and practicality. Wood prints provide a natural, earthy look with their bare edges. Metal and acrylic prints are decidedly modern with long lifespans and resistance to fading or water-damage, making them great for kitchens and bathrooms.
Artwork is that finishing element that can help it all come together, thus the name of my company All Together Art. It is that little extra touch that can take your space from simply looking functional to appearing as if it could grace the pages of a magazine.
