More Art in Interiors

“In situ” photographs, which I posted about a few days ago, help to show how art might look in an interior setting. The artworks you see here are all shown in virtual settings — the result of my purchasing photos through Shutterstock and using Photoshop to layer them into the scenes.

After selecting interiors that would complement the art, and vice versa, I paired up several city-themed images that work well together.

Here’s the same photograph as above, but with a different set of images that also work well together:

This pair gives the room a more subdued feeling than the more vibrant pair in the top photo.

In the first photo, the artworks have a variety of bold pink shades that play off the other pinks in the room. The overall effect is warming and energizing. In the second photo, the artworks’ predominant colors are purples and greens, with little flashes of vibrant pink. They still speak to the pinks in the room, but the overall vibe is calmer. That’s my opinion, anyway! I like them both ways.

And here’s the same pair of artworks in a room of purples and greens:

I love the green shade of that couch! It’s cool, crisp, and refreshing. The purple pillows combined with the green upholstery seemed a natural fit for this pair of art prints. I went with charcoal grey art frames, rather than black, in this setting for a softer look.

Thanks for reading!
