Can’t decide on what type of art you like? Here is a guide that will help you.

Deciding on art that fits you and fits your space is a highly personal process that involves considering your tastes, preferences, home design style, wall space, and your unique personal individuality. Here are some steps to help you choose art that will resonate with you and your co-inhabitants

Explore Different Styles and Mediums.

Start by exploring a variety of artistic styles, from classical to contemporary, modern to whimsy, pop art to environmental art, and also consider different mediums such as painting, sculpture, photography, and digital art. The easiest way is to go to Google, click on ‘Images,’ and search for ‘home interior design,’ or ‘great art for homes,’ and see if anything excites you. You can also search my websites at and for some world class art that will look great on your wall! If you have more time you can also visit art galleries, museums, online art platforms, and local exhibitions to expose yourself to a wide range of artistic expressions.

Reflect on Your Preferences.

Art should emotionally move you. Take some time to reflect on the art that speaks to you on an emotional level. Consider the colors, themes, and subject matter that resonate with your personality, interests, and experiences. Ask yourself what emotions or moods you want the artwork to evoke and what message or story you want it to convey. Great art brings joy, but if the art just disappears into the background of the room, or is just plain boring…..reconsider and keep looking.

Look for Artwork, Artists and Styles that Resonate with You.

The first step in finding art that gives you joy when looking at it is to find artwork that resonates with you. This may involve exploring different genres, styles, and artists until you find artwork that speaks to you. When you find a piece of art that resonates with you, you are more likely to feel a sense of joy and happiness when you look at it.

Consider Your Space.

Think about the space where you intend to display the artwork. Consider factors such as the size of the wall, the existing décor and color scheme, and the overall ambiance of the room. Choose art that complements the aesthetic of your space while also mentally engaging the viewer or serving as a focal point or conversation starter. Your art should be noticeable, not nondescript.

Set a Budget.

Determine how much you're willing to invest in art, taking into account factors such as the artist's reputation, original art vs reproduction art, the reproduction material such as paper, Giclée or canvas print, the medium and size of the artwork, and any additional costs such as framing or shipping. Also consider how much joy the art brings you, and what investment you are willing to make in an art piece you will likely have for along time, that you will experience almost every day. Remember that art comes in a wide range of price points, so there's something out there for every budget.

Connect with the Artist.

If possible, try to connect with the artist behind the artwork. Go to their social media pages, website or blog to discover more, learn about their inspiration, creative process, and artistic philosophy. If they have an email, send them a message. Building a personal connection with the artist can enhance your appreciation for the artwork and deepen your understanding of its significance.

Trust Your Instincts.

Ultimately, trust your instincts and intuition when choosing art. Listen to your gut feelings and choose pieces that resonate with you on a deep and meaningful level. Art should be ‘experienced’ and great art should create some type of emotion in you when you are experiencing it. Don't feel pressured to follow trends or conform to others' expectations—select art that truly speaks to your soul and brings you joy.

Take Your Time.

Don't rush the decision-making process. Take your time to explore different options, do research, and contemplate your choices. Remember that finding the perfect piece of art is a journey, and it's okay to take as much time as you need to find something that feels right for you, knowing that you will likely experience that piece for many years to come.

By following these steps and staying true to your own tastes and preferences, you can find art that not only fits your space but also reflects your personality, tastes, passions, and values.
