Principal designer at Lux Pad Interiors Tamu Green predicts that art traditionally utilized in commercial and hospitality applications will find its way into residential spaces as more people use their homes as workplaces and entertainment venues. She told us to “visualize neon signs.” In fact, firms like Yellowpop have made them so that anybody can use them, and even specialized software may be made. She thinks the key is to use them consciously. For a museum-like impression, set up a sign next to a pedestal-mounted sculpture, or hang one on a gallery wall for instant cool points. And generally speaking, choose one and stick to it.
Alex Liepman, CEO and creator of DROOL Art, is seeing an increase in neon artwork as well. He describes the photographs of neon signs as “beautifully taken” and “popping off the wall” in a conversation with us. If you’re searching for a way to add a splash of color to your space without causing any discomfort to your eyes, you’ve come to the correct place.
In 2021, “Curvalicious furniture” became a popular style, and Liepman predicts that it will continue to be so. For a seamless, coordinating look, “you may integrate those same softer edges into the wall art you exhibit.” They can quickly make a place seem snug and secure since they are “both feminine and forgiving,” he says. In addition, “since they lend so nicely to large, strong patterns,” they are an excellent way to introduce bright hues into a space.
Mood Lifting Art
Nature Inspired Art
Liepman observes that the devastation of the last two years has given many people a fresh respect for the outdoors. Since this is the case, it is increasingly making its way into houses. Those watery blue tones and the color of the sky, he adds, “can lend a really natural and peaceful vibe to a space, while teleporting you to your happy place.” This will make blue a popular color choice in 2022. Lighter blues should be used with darker ones or sea green tones if a unified atmosphere is desired.
Greenberg concurs, telling us that works of art depicting nature and exuding a relaxing atmosphere were in great demand in 2018. She uses pictures of sunsets, lakes, and greenery, as well as ArtSugar’s hanging flowers and prints centered on plants, as examples. “These landscapes and locations may find new life as wall art in 2022,” the author speculates.
Globally inspired home decor will continue to be popular in 2022, claims Green. Putting things you’ve collected or pictures you’ve shot on your travels up on the walls is a simple way to give your home a more international feel. Adding woven baskets or other textured objects on the wall may also help create a more international atmosphere, she says. It is best to obtain your cultural things straight from their culture of origin, the designer explains, emphasizing the significance of authenticity.
Otherwise, Green claims that nothing except your own creativity can stop you from displaying your treasure trove of discarded items on your walls. As long as you’re not damaging the object, “don’t be hesitant to make adjustments to make [them] work for your environment.” She gives the example, “I’ve framed a pair of African masks to give them greater presence and a more suitable size on a former job.”
