5. If you are the owner of a luxury copyright works of art, the interior of the need to create "a picture" and not vice versa. Bright monochrome walls, muted shades of furniture, a minimum of decoration - draw the room needed so that unnecessary details are not distracted from viewing the picture story.

6. Do not place images near the bulky pieces of furniture - they are "lost". The most suitable places: the wall above the sofa, over the mantelpiece above a small chest of drawers or a bar.

7. Do not forget to relate the size and shape of the picture with the location of windows and doors of the room. The best choice in this case is the symmetry: measure the space and divide the result by two - this would be a good place for the center of the composition.

Stylish, modern paintings interior

Abstract art and Cubism, digital portraits and self-created computer collages - the images are the modern decoration of any stylish interior, however, pay attention to the fact that the Mona Lisa is unlikely to fit harmoniously into the ethno-lounge, and a poster with a favorite dog image just do not decorate the walls in the style of baroque.

In the picture - almost a perfect location with stylish picture of a large size for the interior in the style of constructivism. Pretty boring furniture and monotonous color of the walls seemed to explode from the abstract plot, made in bright colors. In addition, repetitive circumference soften strict geometry upholstered furniture and floor standard lamps.

See how the stylized image of kidney willow blend in accentual gray wall living room, decorated in the style of pseudo-loft. Separation module branches become more dynamic and, in addition, pay attention to how the correct position of the picture - the distance between the back of the sofa is not more than 30 cm, which allows you to close the empty space and leave the plot at eye level, sitting in front of guests.

Stylish picture bedroom interior

If the room can accommodate virtually any image in the kitchen - lovely still life or miniature, the bedroom choice is complicated: bright posters before your eyes will interfere with sleep, pictures with fine details make recalculate "clouds before going to bed," and large items will be annoyingly affect psyche.

Pastels, tranquil plot, the average size - a perfect picture for the bedroom decoration.

A child of the sea - what could be better on a sky-blue walls monotone double bedroom? The color of the sand on the poster is combined with wooden bedside tables, water adds movement impersonal wall and herbarium of dried reeds in a large floor vase paintings combines story and interior room.

The stylish black-and-white paintings for the interior

Modern art - it's not just drawn or photographic images, but also the installation, made of unusual materials.

Unusual picture, does not it? This mirror-plastic installation is made on a black mat, it is the best fit in the room with gray walls and leather sofas in the ethnic style. This is a case when the ornate pedestal floor lamps, sofas and black shades reflected cubic picture elements aimed at creating the image of the landlord - for sure, middle-aged man, very loving yourself and kitsch).

Stylish paintings for the interior with their own hands

Here a flight of fancy is truly boundless, as modern technology can create a picture of virtually any material.

We once talked about the embroidered pictures, but this is a little out of the available opportunities: beads and paper, paint and feathers, leather or felted wool - every detail can be part of your personal, author of the picture.

"Why buy a small picture if you can spice up the wall?" - thought the owner of the property and drew a stylized image of the eye. Trendy, very modern and perfectly underlines the overall design of the room.
