BRING­ING ART INTO YOUR HOME

Art lover Marco Tor­res shares with us his tips for choos­ing and dis­play­ing art, re­gard­less of the floor area of your home. 1. Choose some­thing that

moves you. “Art doesn’t have to be ex­pen­sive. You can al­ways find some­thing nice at any price. In the end, you might want to in­vest, but when you start, just buy what you like. You buy it be­cause you en­joy look­ing at it. It evokes an emo­tion from you.”

2. Match art to your in­te­ri­ors. “If you want to dis­play your art, it will have to match the theme of your room. If ev­ery­thing else is mod­ern, an Amor­solo might be out of place.” 3. Use art to in­ject life into

a space. “What­ever blank space you have that you think needs liven­ing up, then put art, add col­ors... Maybe the main art­work can be the pal­ette for the rest of the room. Or [if] the rest of the room is so neu­tral, you can add more col­ors through art.”
