Dining with Art

Much of the time we spend at home is in and around the kitchen and so a natural place to put artwork.

If space is limited look for countertops or shelves to prop up pieces. Try moving the cookbooks or fruit bowl to the side and make some room for art to provide inspiration as you cook, entertain and eat.

Try leaning your artwork on countertops. Protected behind glass, you can always wipe away any cooking splashes.  We love the bold graphic Bugspot ‘140’ in front of the geometric tiles, the clever contrast shouldn’t work but it absolutely does.

Even the smallest kitchen has space for art – adding art will transform a blank wall. Small corners can been lifted and made bright and welcoming with a colourful piece of art.

An art piece above or next to a dining table works well for larger pieces. As a focal point, it’s a great place to make a statement.

We love to see clever use of space; there is no shelf or wall that can not be transformed by a piece of art.

A mix of books, decorative objects and art can transform a purely function storage cabinet. Smaller prints like this Sophie Layton piece, simply placed on the shelves, can elevate the whole unit.

Whilst cocktails are an art form in themselves, this Paul Cleden above the bar is sure to spark conversation over a drink.  Look to keep the artwork narrower than the furniture below for balance.
