Truly meaningful pieces should relate in some way to the homeowner's interests or experiences. For example, a home chef might seek out food-inspired art while a wildlife enthusiast decorates with depictions
of favourite animals. An interior design principle that translates beautifully into art selection is repetition. What is repetition in art? As you can see by
Adobe's suggestions for repeating designs
repeating colours, textures, shapes and patterns woven throughout a home creates overall harmony and visual interest. Collect artwork and decorative objects featuring a colour from the wall paint or sofa
upholstery for a pulled-together look. Group pieces with similar thick, dark frames or thin, light frames rather than mixing and matching. Consistent shapes and forms, like round mirrors paired with round
wall platters echo each other. And repetitive subject matter, such as a series of abstract floral prints, connects rooms.
