Mood and Attitude

A large abstract painting can establish an immediate mood for a room through the elements of color, pattern and composition. In a room where socializing will occur, an energetic pattern or a composition that implies movement can set a lively mood.

What Large Abstract Paintings Can Do For An Interior Space

For some the choice of whether to buy a particular work of art usually has nothing to do with the size of the piece or whether it will match other possessions. The choice is usually guided by something much more visceral - they simply know that this object belongs with them.

The biggest concern for couples is whether or not one of the large paintings they were viewing would match with their other belongings. What I would say to them is that in reality it is rare for people to hold to the same furniture for more than about a decade and it's quite common today to completely get rid of furniture and start over. Design trends come and go and paint preferences change on a whim. But your art will likely be with you for the rest of your life.

Art First, Furniture Later

If you see a large abstract painting that you would like to own, you should not worry so much about whether it will fit in with the rest of your furniture or décor. Most of that stuff has a limited life span. Start with the art. Buy what you love. Then when the inevitable time comes to replace your furnishings and change the color of your walls, you can make choices that work in conversation with the art.

Large Paintings Create an Aesthetic Language

One of the most difficult things to do with a room is to define it with an overall aesthetic that ties the space and its furnishings together. Large abstract paintings are perfect for this goal since they can be interacted with purely according to their aesthetic values. Formal artistic elements within a painting such as line, color, texture, shape and pattern, can set the tone, so to speak, for an overall design by creating a visual language for the room.

Large Paintings Bridge Objects with Space

Small artworks can add intimacy to a room by inviting guests inward toward the work in order to consider it more closely. But often a space is so large or dramatic that a small painting can get lost or dominated by the architecture. Large abstract paintings are particularly valuable in such spaces. For example, if a room has two-story high cathedral ceilings, a large abstract painting placed in the right spot, high off the floor, can help bridge the gap between the grandeur of the room and the human scale of the décor.
