    When decorating with sculptures vs art prints, there are many differences and similarities you will need to consider. But first, are you decorating the room around the art? Or are you decorating your room with art?

    “The medium is the message.” – Marshall McLuhan

    Marshall McLuhan’s words ring true in the art world as they do in popular media. Different types of artwork carry different messages, meanings and have a different impact on decor.

    Decorating With Sculptures

    A sculpture makes a statement. While you can buy paintings and sculptures in the same category, such as erotic art, having a sculpture says something different than art prints or paintings. As such, you need to approach decorating witch sculptures differently.

    A sculpture will often draw attention and be a focal point in a room, or at least in its area. It compels the viewer to examine and appreciate it from different angles. As such, it’s nice to have it mounted in such a way that it is visible from all, or multiple, sides.

    A sculpture works in a different dimension and serves to bring a room to life. Whether free-standing, wall-mounted or sitting on a table or shelf, they bring a dynamic element to space.

    Often, people will use large sculptural art as the focal point in the room. However, any truly interesting sculpture will command attention no matter where you put it. They’re a great addition to any part of a room that could use some livening up.

    Decorating With Art Prints

    Photographs, paintings, and illustrations are just a few examples of popular art prints. Each has its own unique considerations for home decor, but they also follow some similar rules.

    Most prints are wall-mounted, but they can vary in display. Frames can be ornate, decorative, simple, or have no frame at all. Generally, an art print will work with the existing colors and themes found in the room.

    Similarities Between Decorating With Art Prints & Sculptures

    One of the biggest similarities between decorating with prints and sculptures is the need to tie them in with the design of the room. This can mean that you choose your art to either flow with the colors of the room or completely stand out. In a neutral-colored room, the artwork may be chosen to purposefully stand out, with bold colors and imagery.

    Sculpture Ruslana 7395

    Another similarity is to tie the artwork into the thematic design of the room through complementing or contrasting themes. A contrasting theme will make the art stand out, whereas a complementary theme will make the room fit together.

    Differences Between Decorating With Art Prints & Sculptures

    Before Investing in Art, understand the space where it will live. The differences in decorating with prints vs sculptures have to do with dimensions. Sculptures have 3 dimensions, where prints are comparatively flat. As a result, their placing needs to be considered differently.

    Free-standing or wall-mounted sculptures should be placed somewhere where they will not obstruct movement.

    Another consideration for sculptures is their materials. A white marble sculpture, for instance, may not look best if it will be placed on a white marble countertop. However, if placed in a room with marble columns or installments, it will fit in nicely.

    As well, if you have a statue, people will touch it. Make sure it is placed somewhere safe and stable. Among other forms of art, sculptures have the unique ability to be able to convey meaning through physical interaction.

    Above all, when you are investing in a piece of art, it should be something that draws you back to it.

    Some clients prefer photographic art, such as Arkadiy Kozlovski’s works focusing on the erotic female form. Others may prefer a more surreal style such as Alice Zilberberg’s erotic art prints.

    Another important interior design tip for erotic art is to find out your client’s interests. If your clients express a desire for certain types of fetish art, be sure to match their desired fetish and themes.

    Another question you will want to discuss is the exclusivity of the art. An art lover will often be willing to set their spend a little higher to purchase limited edition prints or original artwork. It can also give an idea of whether they want something more generic or truly unique.

    Art is an effective tool for setting the mood and tone of a room. With erotica art, you want to be sure to set the right mood.

    When beginning the decorating process or reassessing the décor of a home, it can be more than a little intimidating; especially if your goal is to decorate with nude art, and even more so in the case of choosing decor for an office or place of business. For those with a taste for provocative art, a unique decorating challenge presents itself in this endeavor. It is not an altogether different challenge than decorating with non-nude art, as many of the same “rules” apply in both cases. Therefore, those flirting with the idea of decorating with nude or provocative art have nothing to be concerned about; on the contrary, they should go with their instincts. Provocative art carries an intriguing allure that most people find irresistible. The mystery and uniqueness of such pieces display a boldness that captures interest. They can be very striking and either command attention or subtly invite it. Guests of a place of business or a home displaying sexy or nude art will notice, and impressions are made as a result. The question then is how to decorate with nude art in an elegant and appealing way.

    Water Walker by Craig Colvin

    Decorating with nude art is not entirely different than decorating with any other form of art. The goal and focus are to place pieces in an order of structure and color that is pleasing and inviting. When choosing to decorate with nude art pieces, one must keep in mind the color and tone they are seeking for their environment. Is color a factor when choosing, or is it practical to skip being concerned about wall color and choose black and white photography? The choice of color in a room, in any circumstance, is the main factor that determines an individual style and selection. It sets the tone of what people will experience when they spend any length of time there. Another factor to consider is the concept of feng shui, the ancient Chinese method of arranging the order in a space to create a positive flow of energy. Considering the scientific studies that back the concept of energy, the practice of feng shui is worth considering when decorating with nude art. Common “laws” of feng shui arrangement include utilizing uplifting forms of artwork, providing plenty of natural light, pairing together pieces appropriately (framed pieces side by side), accent lights, and avoiding any artwork that expresses estrangement or violence.

    Decorating with nude art can liberalize an environment for lovemaking.

    The decorating opportunities for nude art are broad, especially when appropriately applied in place of business or home. The bedroom, of course, is one of the best places to decorate with nude art or erotica, for obvious reasons. It can create a liberalizing environment for lovemaking, especially when the provocative art of sexy nudes are part of the décor. The combination of passionate colors (such as rich roses and warm chocolates) with provocative art, can promote a passionate, erotic playground. Likewise, the combination of nude art with muted tones such as pale violet, sea green, or sand can promote a peaceful and cool or warm space for lazy enjoyment.

    Bodyscape by Anton Belovodchenko

    Decorating other areas of a home can be a puzzling assignment, as the environment outside the bedroom is exposed to all guests and the intimacy level here is lowered. In these areas, it is important to choose pieces that promote the comfort, enjoyment, and even curiosity of guests. It is possible to decorate tastefully with provocative art, in a way that promotes conversation, camaraderie and entertains company. Subtlety can be powerful. A balanced blend of erotic art among other art styles and colors is conversational, pleasant, and sophisticated.

    This concept applies to places of business, as well. The question of the appropriateness of using provocative décor in a place of business may have some raising their eyebrows, but depending on the pieces displayed, decorating with nude art in a business setting (depending on the setting desired) can impact a business environment in positive ways, also. Of course, it depends on the business and which style or image that business would like to project.

    The pieces chosen are important factors when decorating with nude art. This pertains to artist, tone, and style. A piece created by a particular artist will say something about you, the owner, as an individual. So, examine the artist. Read their bio, and learn a little about them. The tone of a piece is also important. Don’t settle for less than what you want to portray. If you are trying to display passion, pay attention to the tone of the piece. A portrayal of naughtiness, innocence, or a simple but striking woman’s form will each speak in their own tones. The styling is also important. Be sure that the textures within the artwork with the textures within the room. Eclecticism does work, but be sure to fully understand eclecticism before attempting to put it into practice.

    Dara by Craig Morey

    Those venturing into the exciting world of collecting nude art will best be served to carefully choose pieces that speak to them in a unique way. Whether for personal enjoyment or displayed for all to see, a personal collection of provocative décor will engage guests and likely get tongues wagging.
