Art is SO key to every room, and as personal and subjective as Art may be, there are some guidlines that I usually follow with children: Try selecting Art that is
not too busy or complex, be playful with scale - bigger is often better and small can be great with modern placement. Keep in mind - you want the room to inspire creativity - but you also want the room to be tranquil enough to illicit a good night's sleep!
|If it's Budget friendly - I love incorprating large scale abstract pieces and find children really respond to it.|
When they're very young - theyll love the colors, as they grow older - they'll think it's a very cool piece.
|Look at new and upcoming artists! These two abstracts are by Michelle Armas. Very affordable - and the great thing here is you can easily commission her to paint a specific size and color prefrence.|
|Let's face it - most children love a dog! These are "Blue Prints" and they have just about every Breed imaginable represented. I would cleanly frame them in simple thin white metal frames and modernly stack them - they'd be fantastic!|
|Nobody likes personalization more than a young child and these Paul Thurby prints are available in every letter of the Alphabet - so the choices are endless!|
|For the Girly set: I love this Paule Marrot Feather Print, it's wonderfully large (56 x 44) and beautifully set in|
a modern acrylic frame (see below)
|Finally - don't forget the occasional flea market find and then update it! Again - I would take him a step further by abstracting him up a bit with more color - and don't be afraid to hand the paint brush to your child!|
