Are Oil Paintings Out Of Fashion?
Still Life In A Contemporary Living Room
I have some beautiful landscape and still life oil paintings that hung in my parents home and was wondering if this type of art work is "out" for decorating?
Generally speaking I would say that still life and landscape oil paintings suggest a traditional style and are best suited to a room or property which heavily features dark wood and perhaps antique furniture.
A more contemporary style property is more often associated with modern art with bolder colours and a less photo-realistic style.
That said, as you can see from the picture above a traditional style painting can look great when teamed with modern furnishings and if it were me, I would throw away the rule book and furnish my home with whatever pleased me.
If I had a modern sofa I loved but also had an oil painting that brought back memories of my family and happy days I would want them both in my home and I guess that is what makes the difference between a house and a home.
