Go Bold with Oversized Art for Your Home

The Big The Bold and The Beautiful on blog.artflute.com

Big, bold, attention-grabbing and a sure-fire conversation starter- this is not the latest headline in a gossip rag that we’re talking about, but art that is strikingly oversized and that gets people talking. Making a five-feet piece of art the focal point of a room might seem like a daring thing to do, but Artflute is here to show you how going bigger can be better.

A giant piece of art can take the pride of place – above a bed, in the hallway, at the foyer, along the wall on a staircase or even leaning against a floor. Think offbeat, think daring and you are sure to love the results.

Larger than life artworks can also be a great way to heighten an interiors scheme you have chosen for a room. For instance, if your room has traditional dark wood furniture with ethnic accents, this artwork depicting a street in front of Charminar is a great choice. Complementing the brass knick-knacks and vintage furniture of your room, the earthy hues of the painting will make an unforgettable statement.

If your office or study needs a burst of colour and energy, hang up a piece of art like this one. The art gets to do the talking in this case with the neutral colour palette of the room making the colours of the painting pop.

You can also match the hues of your decorwith that in an oversized painting. The blue colour palette of your room would make a great background for this eye-catching painting. So even if your style is more soft and subtle, it can work wonders with art that is imposing.
