In the decor of this room one might expect a painting or image that is thought of as classic, such as a traditional still life or country scene, to adorn the wall. Here, however, the choice was to hang a contemporary abstract painting. Introducing a modern piece of art into an otherwise traditionally decorated room, makes for an inviting and interesting space. The colorful and dynamic splotches in the painting pop out in contrast to the tranquil decor and become the focal point of the rooom. In thinking of decoration ideas for your home, consider hanging a painting, poster or other piece of art that contrasts with the basic decor of the room.
