How to introduce an abstract painting into the interior
Abstract painting is a powerful source of inspiration and a great way to create a deep emotional interior. Let the expression pour from the canvas, and we will tell you what direction to send it.
In the living quarters the same rules apply, the painting can become the highlight of your house as well as get lost among the furnishings. Perhaps you are just going to make repairs and want to build a future interior around a real masterpiece of abstract art that has long been in «the table», and you cannot decide to hang it on the wall. By the way, it may happen that you are only going to become the owner of an abstract painting, without changing the usual color of the walls. Whether a work of art is self-sufficient, or it needs help - you can feel it intuitively, and in order fit the painting properly into the future interior, you need to know a few rules. We will share the recipe for success.

Decide on the size of the painting
In modern interiors, there is a default rule regarding this kind of paintings: the higher the «level of abstraction», the larger the size of the canvas. If the image has some geometric or suggestive character, this painting, as a rule, is of a small size. If the image form cannot be clearly characterized or is absent at all, then the dimensions of the canvas can even be compatible with human growth. At the same time, it does not matter whether it is a canvas with a pure texture of a pigment or an imitation of a painting, the overall picture of the interior does not depend on it.
Adjust the right contrast
In fact, there is no contradiction in contrast between the work of modern art and conservative interior design, because art is always ahead of its time, and the style of a human dwelling cannot change for centuries or even millennia. Therefore, to make the stylistic contrast not cause a visual error, you need to pay attention to the content of the abstract canvas, no matter how strange it may sound.

Choose the tonal support
Color in abstract paintings plays a decisive role, and if it is very intense or you think that it is aggressive, well it requires less support - there a small impregnation in the interior will be enough. If the colors are rather soft and «obedient», you can increase the area of this color scheme. Each nuance will be important, because at the expense of the amount of color impregnations you can get as calm and pacifying interior, so daring and defiant.
Create a semantic roll call
A little humor in the arrangement of your house will make the interior filled with new meanings and sayings, and you will never be bored in it. Modern conceptual art is suitable for this as no other: whether it is hipster irony or intellectual allusions. Such techniques will tell a lot about the owners of the apartment, and the synthesis of an abstract image and objects of design and decor will make a real installation out of a normal room.

Subdue the interior to art
If you want the painting in abstract style to have a pre-eminent value for the whole interior, then it must completely define and subordinate it to itself. In this case, all the interior items are to give the message that the artwork carries. Furniture, lighting, decor - everything, as a rule, is tied to the colors and mood of the picturesque canvas. It is important to know about the time, the author and the place of creating the artwork, if you have the original one, or the meaning in the world culture, if you deal with any replica or a copy of the world masterpiece.
