For a new home.
New homes are a blank palette and is a great opportunity to collect a different type of art. Maybe your home is in a new part of t
he world, and you want to fill it with art that represents the region. It could be you transitioned from a certain type of decor to another. For example, you move from a Tudor home to a modern loft. Now you can find new pieces that complement the architecture of your new home.
To create memories.
Alot of collectors prefer to find paintings while on vacation. What is nice about this way of collecting is that every time you look at the artwork you are immediately transported back to that destination. All the fun memories and the people you shared them with become part of the painting each time you look at it.
Decorating your home.
All interior designers will tell you that you choose you rugs and your art first. Everything else will then fall in place. You can pull your entire color scheme from a painting. Wall colors, fabrics, and flooring can all be found in the subtle hues or the bold brushstrokes of a well-appointed painting.
Because looking at it makes you happy.
We have all been there. Unexpectedly you stumble upon a painting that just takes your breath away. You are in love and want to look at it for the rest of your life. And truly, this is the best reason to buy a painting.
