Fireplaces continue to be a prominent feature of living rooms, great rooms, dining rooms - even bedrooms and kitchens in many of the homes we visit. The artwork over the fireplace has a featuring role as well! After working with hundreds of clients to find that "perfect" piece, here are some tips we can offer:
Determine the best shape and size needed based on the space above the mantel.
CONSIDER LIGHTING AND MANTEL USE
Sconces (or other lighting fixtures), candles, or other objects displayed on a mantel should be consider when choosing the appropriate shape, size and positioning of the artwork.
CONSIDER THE BACKGROUND
CHOOSE FOR LOVE!
All tips aside, pick artwork that you love to look at as you sit in front of your fireplace. The "right" artwork is a personal choice and is something you will treasure for years to come.
All prints shown here are from the FOCUS Gallery collection and these are our clients' homes! We are happy to discuss your needs and try to help you find a match for your home.
