Importance of Artwork

Good artwork is a key component in styling a house to sell!

As home stylists in Melbourne, we find that a piece of wall art is more than just a perfectly positioned painting on a wall. In property styling, we usually ask our clients to take down any family photos from the walls as it then creates a better opportunity for potential buyers to visualize themselves in the home. Artwork can be used to fill these spaces while broadening the aesthetic appeal.

When dressing a house for sale purposes we at Piller find that artwork should be considered at the onset of a project and referred back to at each stage of the design process. This helps make decisions on colour, furniture and material palettes much easier.

The artwork you choose for your home should work harmoniously within your interior space. The purpose of an artwork is to enhance your interior and set the mood whilst creating a memorable visual point for buyers and visitors alike.

Here are a few reasons as to why Artwork matters in Pre-sale property styling:

✔ Completes the Room: Wall art is the finishing element of decoration that helps tie in the interior space/room.

✔ Creates a Focal point: Every room needs a component that will instantly draw the eye into the space. Pay attention to the placement and the scale and proportion of the art to ensure the furniture and décor surrounding it is complimentary. You can further choose to highlight the artwork with appropriate lighting

✔ Ads texture and depth: While some pieces may be two-dimensional paintings, you can find art in a variety of different mediums to help bring a varying sense of texture into the space.

✔ Provides an Instant colour pallet: A painting can allow to you chose a dominant colour you like which you use as an accent colour for you interior.
