Coordinating artwork colors with my sofa, curtains or carpet

Most people typically dislike leaving their walls bare. They prefer to hang something that will either inspire or soothe them visually. Usually, I advise people not to be too coordinated with regards to colors or pattern and to just choose artwork that appeals to them. On the other end of the spectrum, some people really like to have perfectly coordinated interiors. If you belong to the second type – or even just somewhere in between – you can’t go wrong matching black and white framed photographs with a neutral color scheme (i.e. beiges, blacks, whites and greys) or getting art that has specific colors that match pieces of furniture, wall colors or accessories in your home.
