  • NO. Do not base your purchase FROM AN ARTIST based on if the work matches the color scheme. Make certain you LIKE the work and want to live with it. This is a HUGE mistake. Good art does NOT NEED to match your sofa, or the chairs, or the wallpaper. The artwork you live with will probably match your style and you need not work about it matching the color of the furniture. Buy from an artist you have seen many works from. Go to the gallery or call the artist and see the work(s) first hand. Ask to have it in your home for some time, live with it… BUY ART YOU LIKE!
