Putting together a home is the project of all projects. Whether you live in an apartment, house or have design authority over your room in a space there are a few key steps to putting together a comfortable and functional living space. Finding the right furniture, the right storage solutions and the right color scheme is all crucial to laying the foundation for a space you’ll be able to thrive in as well as live in. After all of that? The decorative stage begins.
Home decor is arguably as if not more important than finding a place for everything. The decor sets the mood, tone, and communicates to others what your vibe is. Your space says a lot about you — from the colors to the textures to even the posters you hang on the wall. If you’re looking for a brighter accent, a more lively space or want to try something more bold with your space and yourself — these pop art paintings are the way to go. Pop art emerged in the 60’s as the art that takes a rebellious spin on some of the more classic tropes of artistic expression. It usually consists of bright colors, recognizable figures and edgy poses that instantly communicate a risqué message to the audience.
If you’re considering a new direction when it comes to your wall décor we recommend giving pop art a try. In a world filled with conventional, predictable visuals on walls be one that stands out from the crowd with one of these pop art paintings.
