Everything is ready to be happyTo get used to an updated dwelling? But something is wrong: there seems to be no flaw, but you feel the emptiness and incompleteness of the situation - as if you have tasted a useful and beautifully served dish from quality products, but without salt and seasonings. The benefits are there, but there is no delight and joy ...
A little effort - and you can make a homeThe atmosphere is unique notes that will allow you to feel yourself and the house as a whole, to feel that you are related to each other, and not crossed at random.
One of the most common "tools"Able to make the interior truly unique - fine art in all its diversity: painting, photography, handicrafts. But you can achieve success only with the skillful handling of such an "instrument", so let's talk about how to decorate the interior with paintings and photographs.
You ask: That for the difficulty - decorate your native walls with reproductions of long-loved paintings and photos of your beloved people and places? But if you do not take into account the numerous nuances, the result of such decorating can disappoint you.
Analyze the nature of things in the room: so, if bulky cabinets and massive sofas prevail, the abuse of images will "heavier" the room optically.
Are you a minimalist? Then the use of images, too, will have to be abandoned. Although minimalist interior can be very effectively tinted with competently selected engravings - Japanese if you like oriental motifs, or executed in the spirit of European masters, if you gravitate towards the western style. It may be appropriate to have a picture or a photo work in the avant-garde style - if you are closer to history and novelty than history.
Do you prefer classics? The rich decoration of the room can be supplemented with landscapes or genre painting, as well as photographs within the framework appropriate to the style of furniture and decoration.
The purpose of the room determines the characterImages used in the interior. Large linens are suitable for the living room; They can expand its space and make the room lighter - unless the size of the room itself and the height of the ceilings do not interfere. Place the picture on the central wall, taking care that the plot and the color scale of the image attract the eye.
Still lifes are traditional in reception roomsFood (dining room, kitchen-dining room). However, here the landscape in light colors - a water color or the image executed by oil paints is useful also. In kitchens and canteens, air contains fatty vapors and has high humidity, so put the picture in a frame under the glass to protect it from exposure to harmful factors.
Painting in the bedroom is designed to provide you with a chargeGood mood for the whole day. For this purpose, for example, a landscape or a portrait in pastel colors: the bedroom is intended primarily for relaxation, and pictures in bright and contrasting colors here can only do much harm. If you place a portrait - pay attention to its semantic load, so that it does not affect you depressingly.
In the children's room are usually placed pictures andReproductions depicting fairy stories, cartoon characters, illustrations for travel stories. And they lose sight of the children's ability to deeply perceive serious painting. So, making out the children's room, do not get too "into childhood"!
In the hallway, hall, corridors, placeLaconic in content and style of the painting and photography. A man, undressing in the hall or passing along the corridor, manages only to glance at the images. By the way, and for the study room canvases in this style will do the best.
Take care of image quality: Reproductions of high quality, and not causing association with popular "photo wallpapers" of the Soviet period; Photos - without the effect of "red eyes" and in any case not in the style of "me and my friends on shish kebabs during the May holidays". Choose beautiful portraits, in which a certain style is held, close to you in spirit. It is recommended to "roll" selected photographs on the foam board: this will protect them from deformations due to temperature differences.
Separately it is necessary to mention variousWorks of needlewomen: collages, puzzles, embroidered paintings, handicrafts look fresh and winning in almost any situation. In the kitchen, painted boards and plates are appropriate, in the corridors - embroidered miniatures: landscapes, portraits, still lifes with flowers, for the living room family portraits-collages will suit. In the bedroom you can place and embroideries, and panels, and even sculptures.
Frames should be in harmony with the image itself andWith an interior. Avoid cheap low-quality frames - it's much better to use frames made in a baguette workshop individually. A simple wooden frame can be made independently.
Placing images is the easiest way to traditionallyAlign elements along the bottom or top edge of the frame - this is the basic principle of how to decorate the interior with paintings and photographs. You can also use chess order. It is more difficult, but at the same time, more interesting to achieve the effect of "artistic disorder", the main goal of which is to create an impression of an interior with a story, such that the constituent images of it were collected for several years by several generations of your family. In this case, you can use aged and black-and-white photos of different formats and in different frames, as well as artificially aged paintings and reproductions.
Decorating the interior with images, do not loseSense of proportion, so that your apartment does not become either a new hall of the Tretyakov Gallery, or a photo archive. Choose only the best canvases and photos that reflect your attitude. And more: do not use artistic elements to mask the defects of repair, and even more so - its lack. The background of your collection should be neat walls.
