Why Bigger is Sometimes Best When It Comes to Art

One of the quickest and easiest ways to liven up a blank wall is with BIG, BEAUTIFUL, BOLD, ART! Supersized art is a definite style maker and makes a statement in a big way. Here are a few examples of art that takes center stage.

No room for a piece of furniture in your foyer? Welcome guests in a big way with a supersized piece of statement art.

Think outside the box when it comes to oversized art. Instead of a typical painting, a gorgeous large mirror with a decorative frame doubles as art in this space.

A piece of art can even be customized to coordinate with your room’s color scheme. Marcia Moore Design has relationships with many local artists who can create a one-of-a-kind showstopper for your home.

Don’t forget that the ceiling can be art, too! The faux painted ceiling in this dining room is meant to mimic a Tuscan sunset.
