Description: Menucha Page, a contemporary Israeli artist, will guide you on how to accurately choose Jewish wall art that will mesh with your home or office space and harmoniously work with other existing elements.
Did you know that Jewish wall art is one of the most popular trends in contemporary Israeli interior design? Did you also know that it has become an important alternative to classic paintings?
Wall art does to a room what candles does to a shabbat dinner table. An elegant wall art piece can easily transform a dull space into a fully functional one that is full of personality and pizzazz. The best part about wall art is that it is versatile. It is easy to switch up. You can also play with its size, scale, colour, and placement until you find a look that suits you.
Very often, we do not readily think of opportunities to personalize our work and living spaces. Most of us decorate our walls as an afterthought. It’s usually the last thing we do when we renovate. Long after the final coat of paint has dried and all of the furnishings have been carefully put in place.
If you are a little nervous and hesitant to give wall art a try, don’t worry. In this blog post, Menucha Page, a contemporary Israeli artist, will guide you on how to accurately choose Jewish wall art that will mesh with your home or office space and harmoniously work with other elements.
Tip #1 Play with the Shape
Not all wall art needs to be matted and framed in a traditional square box. The beautiful thing about art is that it is a reflection of you. It primarily exists to remind you of your faith, the places you have visited, and the things that you enjoy most in life. The important thing to remember is that art is personal and everyone sees it differently. So don’t be afraid to experiment with different materials, such as art, wood, and ceramic. If you really want to be original, you may also try experimenting with natural and organic shapes.
Tip #2: Don’t Be Afraid to Mix Styles
Mixing contemporary art with traditional furniture and décor is not necessarily a bad thing. It can actually create a sophisticated and cheerful look for your space. Some of the most visually appealing and interesting spaces that we’ve seen feature a mix of traditional and contemporary themes. Remember, art is your story, your expression and your vision. It is yours to customize.
Tip #3: Use It to Deliver a Focal Point
Every room needs a focus or a theme. A wall art is a great way to draw people into the space. Essentially, it will give people a taste of what to expect when they enter it. However, it is important to be cautious when selecting your Jewish wall art. The size is particularly crucial when thinking about how to create a focal point. For instance, if the art is too small, it will struggle to make an impression amongst the big furniture. In contrast, a piece that’s too large will dominate the room and be too much of a distraction.
As stated in the beginning of this article, wall art is not meant as an afterthought. You defeat the purpose of having a wall art if you add it last. Instead, consider using wall art as the basis for designing the rest of the room’s colour scheme. Pick out two or three different shades from the art. Use one to paint the walls and the other to furnish the room.
