“A quality of cosiness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being. Creating sanctuary in the middle of very real life.”
Over the last year, ‘hygge’ has become an internationally popular concept, highlighting the importance of making your home a source of relaxation and wellbeing. Here at Rock Salt Prints we believe that the right artwork has the power to make a house a home, creating the right environment to relax and recharge. Enjoying art reduces your stress levels and is a brilliant tool to help you switch off at home.
When choosing artwork consider how the piece makes you feel. There are a wide range of styles, materials and mediums that can create different responses. So ask yourself:
- What sort of vibe do you want to create in your space?
- Do you want to create a calming environment for a space where you want to relax?
- Or are you seeking a conversation piece that is exhilarating?
- Or do you want the artwork to say something about who you are?
Try to surround yourself with artworks that reflect your style, inspire and fosters a positive impact on your home.
Working with your space
Homes come in all shapes and sizes which is why, at Rock Salt Prints, we deal in big, small and everything in between.
To create warmth in a room, try breaking the blank walls in your room into sections. Consider how each section will be used and what type of atmosphere you would like to create. You can use a large statement piece to create a beautiful focal point. Alternatively, If you have smaller pieces you can hang them together, place them side by side, or group them to create an eye-catching gallery wall.
Depending on your restrictions, you should aim to fill about two-thirds to three-quarters of your wall space. If you are looking to create a focal point above a piece of furniture, follow the same proportions, finding a piece that is two-thirds to three-quarters of the size of your furniture. Consider the height that your art is hung, as it determines how your eyes are drawn to the piece.
Now for the fun part
Art is an investment that can last a lifetime and is essential to the finished look of your home. Most, of all, though, it should give you pleasure. Enjoy the process of exploring our range and have fun selecting the perfect piece that best fits your home!
