Why you need art in your home
We talked about the importance of including some pieces of art in your home
BY ANDREA ROMANÍ
Selecting artworks for the home is not a simple decorative action; it is a process that speaks to the very nature of comfort and identity. An original piece, selected for how it resonates with you, can change the way you feel in your own space.
Listen to art
Absorbed by the frantic pace that our society forces us to take, in art we are able to find a way of escape; a gap through which to slow down time and contemplate. A work of art by itself is a real object of time, through it you can feel the effort that its creation has required. It embodies something larger than oneself, a connection to an artist (who perhaps you have even had the opportunity to meet) and the story of the work behind the piece. In today’s automated world, it is always nice to own something in our home that is not machine-made.
Let your walls speak for you
Art is a good storyteller and if you find a work that deserves a privileged place on your wall, it may even speak out for you - and shout about something you are passionate about.
The life you want to give your space
After all, your home is ‘your space’ and you should decorate it with what makes you happy. Feeling comfortable in your own home will make you enjoy more time you spend in it. And from a functional point of view, a work of art can act as a focal point of a room and finish closing its design.
