Neutral Mood Art
Neutral Mood Art
How boring would it be watching a movie where every cast is the main actor? Same goes for the decorative elements in your living room or office spaces.
Expert interior designers will advise you to seek out decorative elements which will complement your primary colour theme. That is where neutral mood artworks come in the picture for your home or office renovation project. Neutral coloured art paintings, art drawings, art prints or printmaking, wall art gives the aesthetic feel to your space, without taking too much attention away from the existing focal point of the room.
Neural artworks are a little more low-key, playing in the background of the other decor items in your space.
Exploring The Middle Ground
Dynamic art is made by creating a clashing contrast between the lights and darks colour extremes. With this in mind, it makes sense that neutral art avoids both extremes. Instead of black or white, it’s more grey. This doesn’t mean that you have to pick out grey art, it just means you should avoid colours that are too dark, too bright, or too pure. Look for colours that have been mixed so that nothing stands out too much; everything fits together without anyone element demanding too much attention.
The images depicted in neutral art tend to be basic and sedate rather than fancy and flashy. This doesn’t mean that a neutral painting has to depict a blank and boring scene. Consider looking for landscapes. A landscape fits nicely into the background while still conveying the calm beauty of mother nature. Try and avoid imagery that is too dramatic or active. If you want a portrait hanging on your walls, then try to get an image of a seated figure rather than someone in the middle of an action.
One thing that you need to keep in mind is that neutrality is relative. A grey image that gets hung up on a red wall will stand out like a red painting on a grey wall. So make sure that you consider the space where your new art will be placed. Neutral art should go with the flow rather than fighting it. So be sure to pick something that fits with the existing colour scheme. Art that looks perfectly neutral on a white screen might end up clashing with a space that already has plenty of colours.
