Interior Decorating Ideas : How to Choose Art for Your Dining Room


Hi, I’m Ann Myrick, and today I’m going to
show you how to pick out art for the dining room. This is a very small dining room so
there are really two walls that you can work with, and I really do not like over kill art
work. If you’re going to have a wall that has something big on it, I also like what
I call a breathing wall where you might have a wall where there’s pictures and another
wall where there’s pictures, and then all of a sudden you have a wall that kind of you
can breathe and you don’t have to, you know, there’s not another picture there. So, in
this situation, I–this is a piece, it’s a very special piece, an inherited piece, and
I really wanted it to be the focal point and really the only thing, and again this is a
small dining room. I will say that a lot times, I think people tend to put too many things
in a dining room. They will, you know, if they have a dining room set, sometimes there
will be three and four pieces. So, there’s all these pieces in this very small room.
So, a lot of times, be careful about putting too much in your dining room. Having a large
picture like this really gives you a focus. So, I left this wall blank. You could put
an architectural piece or something that doesn’t really fight with this piece on the wall or
you can leave it. But in your dining room, you really can do whatever you want to do.
You can, if your dining room is, I really like the blend of informal, formal or old,
new. So, if you have a dining room and it’s very formal, putting architectural pieces,
putting rustic pieces, creating interest kind of energizes the eye. If you have a lot of
the same type of grouping, to do something really different in a real bright color, will
kind of add energy. So, have fun with your pictures, have fun with your artwork. There’s
really not a lot of rules, just try to get creative and do things that are different
and just, you know, put two mirrors together and see if you like it. Put two pieces of
a shutter together and see what you think, but just have fun and play with it. This is
Ann Myrick and that’s how you pick out artwork for a dining room.
