The Biggest Home Art Trends For 2018

0 17

Nothing adds a bold statement to any room as quickly or as well as a carefully placed piece of art, but it can take time to make the right choice. If you’re looking for a bit of inspiration, here are some of the biggest and best home art trends for 2018.

Rainbows and Unicorns

Admittedly not for the faint hearted, this trend has made a real impact so far this year and doesn’t look likely to go away any time soon. “Think pinks, purples, pastels and glittery for a magical, fairytale look – but don’t overdo it! Less is definitely more if you don’t want your home to look like a scene from My Little Pony” says Newington Green estate agent, M&M Property.

Midnight/Jewel tones

Rich, sultry and full of eastern magic, art work full of deep blues, jewel colours and golden accents are big news in the interior magazines for 2018. “ Abstract seascapes and glass art are particularly popular for making a bold but sophisticated impact in any room” suggests Eden Harper.

Line drawings

Distinctly different to the more showy trends but still just as impactful, line drawings are simply yet very effective. Picasso, Degas and Matisse were masters of this style of art, creating eye catching and emotive pieces with just a few simple lines.

Escapism

If you’re desperate to get away but don’t have the time or funds, why not create your own little retreat at home? Paintings of seascapes and islands are big right now and bring a calming effect to the home. Just make up a cocktail, put your feet up and admire the view!

Japanese Art

Wabi Sabi is a style of Japanese art that’s making waves in all sorts of fashionable homes this year. It celebrates the art of imperfection, so expect organic materials, irregular lines and hand made frames.

Female Form

A key theme in art for centuries, the female form is making a fitting return to interior design in 2018, hailed by many as the year of the woman. Well known artists to look for include Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keefe and Rubens, but there are countless other empowering images of women to choose from.

Black and white photography

If you like your artwork effortlessly cool, it doesn’t get much better than a black and white photograph. To really follow the trend for 2018, move away from the generic New York photos and think more Robert Doisneau – or you can always have a go yourself for a completely unique piece of art that really means something to you.

Urban cool

Street style and graffiti are big news this year too, and work particularly well against a crisp white wall or bare brick. Consider artists like Basquiat and Teis Albers for a look that’s bold, contemporary and interesting – great if you want your art to be a talking point.

Reigate estate agent, Robert Leech says, “Art  is a great way to add a new lease of life to your home and bring it up to date with new trends without having to completely redecorate. It can also be a great investment if you buy an original piece, although you can make an equally good impact with a print.”
