Photographs, watercolors, pastels or oils?

Selecting what type of art you hand on your walls is a personal matter. Some people like to hang only black and white photos while other people prefer watercolors. Remember that there is also subject matter to consider and the type of frame to use. Although I’ve come across interiors where an owner will mix photographs and watercolors, in different shapes and sizes, and varying types of frames. That said, it’s usually a good idea to keep one thing consistent, whether that be subject matter or color. In general, black and white framed photographs tend to enhance any type of interior, especially contemporary interiors. When you’re doing a traditional or classic interior, abstract art is usually a safe bet that will also allow you to incorporate bright and fun colors into the painting.
