Add art with decorative lighting for the abode

Every home needs lighting and just about everyone enjoys having art to beautify the surroundings. Put the two together and achieve awesome decor for any abode. Lighting can be a work of art in itself as seen in beautiful chandeliers and unusual sculptural lamps.

Add some lighting to an artist’s canvas and achieve a truly interesting artful effect.44a2f0ef55ba8461b813d0b0e333f58c

Duffy London has married together works of art with lighting to create unique and beautiful artwork that doubles as room lighting.5d232ca7b4059473047c9a0657049d25

The Duffy London Glo-Canvas makes a statement as a “chandelier” dressing up the room.

“The Glo-Canvas range was created in 2002 and launched in Milan in 2005. The range is a series of images that are digitally printed onto cotton canvas and stretched over wooden frames. Each frame is installed with low energy strip lights that illuminate the prints from within and can be hung from ceiling light fittings or mounted onto a wall.”8aeb7592475ed27c647e82427bac13ab

  • The Chandelier Glo-Canvas combines the artist’s canvas “with the opulence and complexity of a crystal chandelier.” Made for the wall or double sided to dress over a table.2a43b00e1e5b2af47063132ea30d8328
  • Add some fun with a grouping of Mini Glo-Canvas pieces in beautiful lamp shades, clouds and scenes.8d48c8dd55548daf3ce2c9aedf130810
  • No room for a lamp then add a floor lamp to the wall with a Standard Lamp Glo-Canvas. “A vintage standard lamp image, on a patterned background, digitally printed onto cotton canvas and stretched over a wooden frame.” The canvas is “illuminated from the centre of the lamp shade”.ffbe2ebd4b9aa4cdc5f38005c8787501

General lighting is vital but accent lighting is just as important when bringing a glow to the furnishings. Art adds personality to the abode. Let your personality shine in the spotlight and never be afraid to dance!

Color blocking decor ideas for a mod abode

This year color has popped, showing up with blocks of brightness in fashion and furnishings.

Color blocking has become the “it” hot trend.

Piet Mondrian, a Netherland abstract painter born in 1872, is actually the father of the color blocking technique that inspired Yves Saint Laurent.

composition by Piet Mondrian

Mondrian became famous as an artist practicing the principles of Neo-Plasticism. He is best known for painting squares of colors in geometric blocks of primary colors outlined with a thin black line. As he evolved he would play with painting the same color between a few black lines. With his final painting, Boogie Woogie, he removed the black lines completely. This was his last work before passing away in New York City in 1944.

Yves Saint Laurent made color blocking vogue with the fashion of the mod 1960’s.

Yves Saint Laurent

Laurent was greatly influenced by Mondrian’s works, bringing them to life on the runway.

The partridge Family brought it to the masses watching their cool color blocked painted bus on TV from living rooms around the world.

Color blocking is a wonderful tool to use when decorating; there are many options when using the color blocking technique.

Color blocking designs have been reinvented for a new generation.  No longer is color blocking only in the bright primary colors and blacks lines of a Laurent dress or Partridge Family bus.

Monochromatic color blocking is using one color in different hues to decorate a room.

  • Paint an accent wall in a color.

    homysphere
  • Use another hue of the same color in a sofa.
  • Add more hues of the color with accessories.

Contrasting color blocking is using two or more distinct colors.

  • Paint the room in a blue.
  • Add a sofa in a green.
  • Accessorize with individualized colored pillows and/ or drapery, and area rugs in different bold colors.
  • Be adventurous and paint each wall in a different contrasting color.

Color blocking patterns add fun with fabrics, art, and murals in contrasting colors ready to decorate.

  • Paint a color blocked wall mural with geometric squares and patterns.

  • Hang a geometric work of art as a centerpiece on the wall.
  • Decorate with pillows and bedding in color blocked patterned fabric.

Color blocking color schemes can be bold using complementary colors or analogous colors.

Complementary colorsare opposites. Look at a color wheel to find opposite colors such as red and green, or blue and orange.

Analogous colorsare the ones next to each other on the color wheel that blend calmly together.

Be creative using your own style and preferences when decorating using a color blocking technique.

  • If you prefer neutrals then color block using neutral colors like grays, whites, and beiges, instead of bold colors.
  • Do not be afraid to mix a bold color in with neutral colors.
  • Add a metallic gold or bronze to bring color blocking decorating into this century.
  • Do individual rooms in different color block hues; have a yellow hued room next to a blue hued room.

Bring home a few color sample swatches to have fun choosing different colors for your blocking project. Paint is a great way to refresh the décor and a budget-friendly way to redecorate. Add some funky color blocked pillows and new area rug to update the abode’s fashion. Color Blocking is about fun. Bring out your inner artist and have a creative time decorating the living space.

Celebrate the colors around you and never be afraid to dance!

Burgerdoodles wall covering for coloring fun
  • “Jon Burgerman is one of the prominent key artists who traverse the disciplines of urban art, design, illustration and entrepreneurism. His award winning artwork can be seen globally from gallery and bedroom walls to cinema and iPhone screens. His art is instantly recognisable, combining fluid and lyrical lines, with distorted character forms and radiant pop colour schemes. A sense of British self-deprecation, dry humour and modern-day anxiety imbues his work along with an enthusiasm for salad.”

 

Jon Burgerman’s work is available in a black & white wallpaper to adorn the walls with a giant coloring-in canvas.

– Color in the artwork using marker pens, felt tips or paint.
