Make Room For Art With Harland Miller

It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and with so many facets of design to consider (scale, colour, contrast, texture…) it’s easy to understand why one could feel overwhelmed when it comes to hanging an art collection at home. Often, we find ourselves playing safe and can stick to hanging our most loved pieces in living spaces and bedrooms, so we’ve collated a few of our top tips alongside art by Harland Miller to show you how to transform every room in your home into an inspired art haven…

 

In the kitchen...

Given the strong saturated colour and the accompanying playful and organic splatter of paint behind it, the kitchen is the perfect place for this piece. Situated along the adjoining wall in the open plan area, it can be admired from the kitchen, dining and living rooms and the highly saturated pink hue electrifies against the herbs on the worktop.

Instead of lining up your frames with the architecture of the room, or with other paining’s, play the artworks off against each other and inject some energy into the space by giving each its own line.

 

In the hallway...

People often place their most loved pieces in bedrooms and living spaces; but display your favourite artwork along a staircase or in a hallway and see the work in a new light. These modest and intimate areas are often overlooked, but you’ll find both you and your guests are afforded an opportunity to get closer to your art here, and you’ll be less distracted by entertaining and more focused on the work.

Use your beautiful furniture, books and art to complement each other, placing one of Millers book inspired works next to this elegant collection of literature creates a feeling of harmony and tranquillity, and the pop of yellow on blue adds dimensionality. 

 

In the office...

A high percent of office-based workers will inevitably spend a significant amount of time at a computer, and health and safety initiatives recommended that people take regular breaks from staring at the screen; a work of art offers an excellent alternative focus. Halrand Miller’s High On Hope exists here as a well-needed distraction to help prevent excessive concentration at the monitor, whilst doubling up as a source of inspiration and motivation. The choice of orange colour in an office environment is also particularly fitting, often used to draw attention, such as in traffic signs and adverting.
