Enhancing Your Living Space: Choosing Artwork for Over Your Sofa: August 13, 2023 - March 21, 2024

The art of interior design extends beyond furniture and color palettes; it also includes the selection of artwork that can transform a living space into a haven of creativity and expression. The area above your sofa presents a prime opportunity to showcase captivating artwork that not only complements your existing décor but also serves as a conversation starter. At Artspace Warehouse, where we offer virtual installations and home consultations, we understand the importance of finding the perfect artwork to adorn this focal point in your home. In this article, we'll provide you with valuable insights and tips on how to find the ideal artwork for over your sofa.

 The first step in selecting artwork for your sofa area is to consider your personal style and the overall theme of your living space. Are you drawn to contemporary, abstract, traditional, or minimalist styles? Artist Julie Naima pulls inspiration from the magical places of the world, imbibing good intentions and positive emotions onto her canvas through her focus on color and shape. The chosen artwork should harmonize with your existing furniture and decor, creating a cohesive and visually pleasing atmosphere. Our expert consultants can help you navigate through different art styles to find one that resonates with your preferences and aligns with your home's aesthetic.

 The size of the artwork you choose is crucial for achieving a balanced and visually appealing composition. Your sofa and the artwork should be proportional to each other. As a general guideline, the artwork should be around two-thirds to three-fourths the width of the sofa. At Artspace Warehouse, we offer a variety of sizes to suit your requirements. Additionally, ensure that the bottom edge of the artwork is positioned about 6 to 12 inches above the backrest of the sofa. If you're unsure about sizing, our virtual installations can provide you with a preview of how different sizes would look in your space.


Consider the color palette of your room when selecting artwork. The artwork's colors should either complement the existing color scheme or provide an intriguing contrast. Think about the mood you want to evoke in the space. Clara Berta’s paintings explore themes such as the ebb and flow of memory, the significance of personal heritage, the passing of physical time, desire, grief, and love, all while enveloping the viewer in a contemplative and emotionally rich ambiance. Do you aim for a serene and calming ambiance, or do you prefer a more vibrant and energetic atmosphere? Our gallery offers a diverse range of artworks that can cater to various color schemes and moods.

 The subject of the artwork can contribute to the overall atmosphere of the room. Landscapes, abstracts, portraits, and still lifes each evoke different emotions and themes. For instance, a serene landscape might create a tranquil ambiance, while a bold abstract piece can inject an element of dynamism. Sally K’s paintings emerge through crowns of fauna and playful brushstrokes, merging characteristics of abstract expressionism with realism and portrait painting to convey the complexity, as she describes, of the “sensuality, independence, and confidence you see in strong women,” all while infusing her artwork with an empowering and vibrant mood. Our consultants can help you explore different themes and subjects to find one that resonates with the desired feel of your living space.

 Arguably the most important of all is personal connection. Art is an intimate and personal experience. Choose artwork that speaks to you on a deeper level. It might be a piece that reminds you of a memorable experience, reflects your passions, or simply resonates with your emotions. A work of art that you have a personal connection with can make your living space more meaningful and reflective of your identity.
