START WITH A FO­CAL POINT

Most art col­lec­tions be­gin with a sin­gle piece. With that in mind, de­cide which art­work you want to be the show­stop­per, the one that will draw the eye the mo­ment you walk into the room, then hang it off-cen­tre. In this dis­play, the largest piece is the an­chor, and the other el­e­ments were cho­sen to complement it. This is a sim­ple trick that keeps any one work from over­whelm­ing the rest of the gallery wall.

LEARN AS YOU GO

Let’s ad­mit it: Buy­ing art can feel in­tim­i­dat­ing. It’s im­por­tant to know, though, that col­lect­ing and ap­pre­ci­at­ing art is a process. The Frame, by Samsung, comes pre­loaded with 100 pieces of gallery-qual­ity art, ef­fec­tively giv­ing you an ex­pert in your own home. Elise Van Mid­delem, an in­ter­na­tion­ally renowned cu­ra­tor who se­lected the pieces for The Frame’s col­lec­tion, says, “I love that this tele­vi­sion lets peo­ple en­joy and learn about art at home, at their own pace.” ART WALL: TOP ROW, FROM LEFT Hexagon MIR­ROR, Elte; Pale Peony by Hilda Oomen, Art In­te­ri­ors.
