In this modern-day world and especially during the lockdown, when so many people work from home, it’s ironic that home offices – places intended to inspire – are often the most neglected room in the house. Design overhauls tend to be reserved for the bedroom, living room, kitchen – even the bathroom seems to get more love than the office these days. However, Studio&Me firmly believes that adding a little art to any space is the perfect way to bring it to life.
PICK PIECES THAT MATCH YOUR STYLE
The first step in selecting wall art is to determine the overall style or look you are trying to accomplish. If you just don’t have a clue, Studio&Me’s online gallery wall options and design layouts are a guide to help those who just don’t have a design eye. In essence, you get the expertise of an interior decorator without having to fork out the consultation fee. Browsing the Studio&Me online store is a fun, interactive experience, from selecting your choice of beautiful prints for your office walls to gaining tips on curating your space.
TRY MIX AND MATCH ART
Your wall art doesn’t have to match the rest of your home decor perfectly. If you have a more traditional home interior, consider mixing it up with something modern. Or try mixing different art styles or frame types. If it works aesthetically, then go for it.
COMPLIMENTARY COLORS If you’re trying to find ways to incorporate art into your home office, consider the colour palette you already have and select pieces that match accordingly. And conversely, if you’re looking for colours to inspire your home design, consider looking to your artwork for inspiration.
A well-curated gallery wall can look just as sleek and exciting as a floor-to-ceiling splatter painting. Remember, however, to tie in an element of consistency, be it a colour or theme/style, as this creates a cohesive gallery wall.
Studio&Me’s gallery walls are specifically curated pieces that customers can buy as a collection. A perfect option for those looking for a whole wall space to be decorated with prints that have some relation to each other (or are more eclectic and consist of a mix of images from different print collections that work together as a whole). They have also been cleverly designed in different colour schemes and styles (from ultra-modern pink to elegant neutral tones) to suit every customer’s needs and tastes, so there is something to please everybody, no matter how ‘off-the-wall’ (or restrained) your desired décor scheme may be.
UNLOCK YOUR CREATIVE GENIUS A bare room should be seen as a blank canvas. Studio&Me has created the artistic tools for you to decorate it with. Next step? Create and enjoy.
