Here is a good article about how to buy handmade oil paintings to decorate room, and i want to share it with you. This article is from which is an online art gallery.

What should we do to make our house looks unique? Everyone wants to decorate their own house beautifully and make it different from other’s. Then it’s a good idea to hang some oil paintings on the wall, because there is no doubt that an oil painting brings a touch of class to a room.

Before we rush out to buy our canvas arts, we should to take some time to think what style/size/color of paintings we should buy to suit our room. Art can be a very big investment so we need to be very sure we love it before we buy it

1. When select the color of a painting, we should choose the one that suits the color scheme of the room. No matter how beautiful the painting is, it will look out of place if its color clashes with the rest of the room.

2. Choose a genre of painting that reflects style. Certain genres can make a bold statement and they do not necessarily match with all types of décor. If your furniture is modern and minimalistic, a baroque painting will not be suitable for it. If you are using only one painting in the room then you can go with a dramatic one. However, if there is more than one then it’s better to choose one that complements each other well.

3. The size of the painting should be appropriate for the room and the furniture and other décor items it already possesses. The important thing to remember is that the framed art is the right size for the particular wall.

4. If you want to bring great art to your home, you can buy reproductions of famous art masterpieces, such as Starry Night by Vicent Van Gogh, The Last Supper by Leonardo da Vinci, etc. Buying reproductions can help you save a lot of money.

As you can see, there are many things to be taken into account when using an oil painting in your home decor. However, you will be very pleased with the results because your room will have a very charming and sophisticated look in the end.
