Painting is one of the most expressive decorative elements you can add to your home, and paintings can infuse your décor with rich, vibrant colors and even a dash of texture. There are dozens of styles and mediums featured in paintings, so it’s easy to select a few pieces that match your personality and interior décor. For a softer look, choose a watercolor painting. This medium features visible layers of color, and can range from life-like to abstract painting styles. For more contrast or detailed shading, look for an acrylic or oil painting. These feature colors that are mixed together on a palette to create a wide range of hues, and some even have a bit of texture where a palette knife has been used.
