Colour, size, shape and materials: what to choose?

Most important thing: what to choose should always reflect your personal style, but paying attention to the space surrounding the artwork, it should be valorised from the context and not in conflit with it. Losts of factors are important and nothing is left to chance. The harmony of the final décor is the main aimThe colour can be balanced tone on tone or brightened by its complementary.

Contrast as a form of harmony

It is well known that behind the physical characteristics of the masterpiece you would like to fill in your space, often the great doubt that arises is which is the best styile to choose: vintage or modern, classic or contemporary, antiques or pop art? The solution adopted nowadays by illustrious architects and designers is to make these two souls coexist, as well as the art gallery Zanini Arte does blending antiques with the contemporary. The philosophy is to encourage the mixology, as a barman does for hos cocktail creation. You could match a contemporary art painting together with an antique piece of furniture; or a classical work in a modern space; or even a coloured neo-pop sculpture surrounded by a monochrome space. As well as for colour and period of the art piece, it can be done also through shapes, sizes and lights. For example, a brightly coloured neo pop painting with ironic and irreverent subjects can be hung above an austere antiques piece of furniture, or a contemporary light sculpture next to an antique painting.
