Matching the Artwork to the Homeowner  

The tastes of individuals vary widely with erotic art. As such, it’s important for interior designers to get a feel for their clients’ tastes when selecting artwork. You will want to discuss styles, artists, and particular interests.

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.

Choosing Art That Fits the Room

As with all art, you need to make sure it fits the design of the rest of the room. There are a number of approaches that range from matching colours and shapes to using a piece that boldly stands out.

When choosing art for a room, it really helps to understand colour schemes. That way, you can effectively match the art to the colours. For example, a room with sharp lines and neutral colours is well-complemented by colourful wall art.

As well, it is best to try and match the general theme of a room. For example, Wabi Sabi is a trend that has become popular in 2018. As a distinctly Japanese trend, it is often well complimented with Japanese themed pieces, such as Shinobi bondage photography.

Choosing Art That Sets the Right Mood

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.

Often, more risque art such as BDSM photography is confined to the bedroom. In areas you typically share with guests, such as a living room, erotic feminine form art is a more easily accepted style. As well, vintage pin-up art prints can offer a classic yet intriguing air to any room.

The bedroom is the most common location for erotic art. It can help to set a romantic tone for couples or liberalize lovemaking. If shopping for couples, consult our romantic art pieces for the bedroom article. It contains tips and benefits of erotic art for those sharing a living space.
