Watercolor is more popular than ever – these diluted colors and shapes look beautiful and very relaxing. Watercolor clothes, shoes, accessories, home textiles, and furniture – we see them everywhere, so let’s add a bit of trendy watercolor to your home decor to create a watercolor wall art piece. The number of types of watercolor artwork is endless: your home state, geoforms, various images, landscapes, even your photos that have been printed and then jazzed up with watercolors. I am sure everyone will find something they like. There are large format watercolor artworks that combine two decor trends: watercolor and large sizes, and they really make a statement.
You can create all kinds of watercolor artwork: abstract, ombre, various shapes, images, geometry, and so on. The basic technique and accessories are almost the same everywhere: you need watercolors, brushes, frames, and watercolor paper. Decide on the picture and the colors you want, stick with your room decoration: it’s seaside, paint an anchor or a seascape, it’s modern, go for geometric prints. Once you’ve chosen an image, first sketch it out on paper with a pencil, or if you’re pretty sure, just paint. First, press a little of your first color onto cardboard or another piece of watercolor paper. First, dip the brush in just enough water to distribute the paint without thinning it out too much. Paint according to your shape or picture you want to get and don’t forget to change the intensity of the colors if you want to get an ombre effect. If you want to get a geometric watercolor work of art, first paint the paper the colors you want and then let it dry. Now cut the paper into the desired geoform and attach it to cardboard or paper. If you’re just painting, the geoforms have thinned outlines. When your design is ready, just let it dry for a while and then frame it or just mount it on the wall as you wish.
Voila, now your artwork is ready! Read the tutorials below to find the artwork you like best and create it at home using the step-by-step guide.
Neutrals will never go out of style as you feel comfortable, fill the room with light and air, and make small rooms look bigger. If you are a fan of neutrals, this round-up will surely inspire you - we have prepared some ideas for decorating your bedroom in neutral colors. Let's start!
Colors and styles
Neutrals go with any style! This is a great color combination that always works for any type of decor, from shabby chic to minimalist. Whichever style you choose, it will work! Not all neutrals are created equal and you can choose crispy ones like white or light gray, or go warmer and softer like tan or taupe. We strongly recommend that you don't limit yourself to just one or two colors and choose a whole range of neutral colors to capture your space.
Another way to avoid boring looks in a neutral room is to use lots of texture, and you can easily do that with materials. Opt for wood - lightly stained or painted, metals in soft neutral tones or even natural metallic hues, with jute, wicker, rattan, and various types of textiles including faux fur. Bedding is actually important for a bedroom, especially if it isn't minimalist. Take care of curtains, carpets and bedding and make your bedroom super cozy if you choose them correctly.
Accents are a must for a neutral space as they will help you keep it cool and bold. You can go for an accent wall, statement plants, gallery walls, baskets, all kinds of seating and any catchy decorations you like, like a hat holder! Enjoy!
