Abstracts in the Home 2.


Chelsea from Hobart, Tasmania has sent me some photos of abstract paintings that are an integral part of her house’s decor. I shall share some with you over the coming week.

It is important to realise that an abstract painting can be hung in an existing, decorated room, or one can design the contents of the room around a painting. The painting itself can be the focal point , play a secondary role, or simply exist in a subtle way.

What I love about this piece of work is how all the other elements in the room compliment it. The size and shape of the lampshade and the cushions relate beautifully to the shapes in the painting which is itself framed simply, the line of the frame matching the shaft of the lamp.

I’m not worried about what the painting means; I get a warm, cosy feel from the composition. There is a rustic look, surrounded by the neutral colour of the wall and ceiling. Thanks Chelsea!
