Any well styled room must have a few key pieces that evoke a certain feel and resonate with the color scheme and vibe of the rest of the area. Choosing these essential pieces is critical to the success of the room. It can be a difficult task to attempt to find exceptional items to decorate a space around. One very good option is beautiful piece of art like a landscape oil painting.
Oil painting art bring a richness and warmth to any room, and are by their very nature unique pieces. They present a feeling of old world elegance and tastefulness. Because of the texture and weight of the paint itself, oil paintings give a sense of permanence and stability in contract to other styles like watercolor.
A Landscape oil painting is a versatile example of this genre. Landscapes can be used in many different kinds of rooms and are able to evoke many different kinds of moods, depending upon the object of the study. A wintery nature scene, for example, will present a much different feel then a more geometric and architectural cityscape. Each of these two examples would be used in two very distinct and different kinds of design schemes.
A landscape oil painting also does a very effective job of providing a feeling of space in a room. It lends a similar effect to adding an extra window. The mind perceives it as a connection to the outdoors. So it is very effective for designing in a room that has limited access to natural lighting. A landscape oil painting can therefore enlarge any room. It is also able to balance the weight of many windows. If a space is designed with a large bank of windows on one wall and only few on another, a landscape will help equalize and harmonize the space.
Size can be another important consideration in designing with a landscape oil painting. There is really no optimal size. A very large landscape will capture the viewer’s attention and create a feeling of space. Several smaller landscapes grouped together or scattered around the room can succinctly develop a theme for that space. The size chosen for the landscape oil painting is completely a matter of taste and purpose, adding to its versatility.
Perhaps the best feature of designing with a landscape oil painting is that each individual can look for, and find, a piece that speaks to them personally. There is so much wonderful art available now online and at local specialty stores that finding a perfect and unique piece for any taste has become much easier. And in the end, that personal reflection of the designer’s individual style and taste is what matters most in designing a room.
