Art is an important part of a room's transformation. It can upgrade its style from simple to elegant or even create the most interesting atmosphere. Of course a piece of art will say a lot about its owner's taste and lifestyle,or simply speak about a certain state of mind.
A while ago I was asked by Minted to chose a piece of wall art that in some way could speak to my senses. My decor style, as you might know by now, is very simple with the use of neutral colors but with emphasis in textures either visual or tactile. So when I was in the hunt for that special piece I turned my eyes into abstracts.
I'm sure the piece I chose had a sentimental meaning to Benedetti (one of the feature artists at Minted), where she explored "the impact of high contrast and subtle layers focusing on movement through line"; but for me this piece evoked a feeling of contemplation and reflection not just on matters of great importance but on things we face everyday.
The "Black Impact" (a limited edition piece) also had that textural thing I'm always after in my decor; brush strokes, paint drippings and geometrical forms. The colors are all in the neutral gamma and the best part was that this piece can be customized from the frame to the size. I love the fact that Minted carries a great stock of "Oversize Art Prints" (this one is 40"x30") which was ideal for the big area over my fireplace where it now inhabits.
Big wall art pieces make for a great focal point and this particular one will give my guests a warm welcome.
