4 Tips on How to Find the Right Art Pieces for your Home

by - Friday, September 25, 2020

Designing my workspace at home unintentionally became therapeutic for me. From dreaming of owning my own space at home, visualizing it via Pinterest, and now buying pieces one by one – I'm thrilled to be enjoying an activity outside my work during these overwhelming times. My workspace idea is all over the place but I'm glad I was able to get tips from Ram Bucoy, an interior designer, on ways how I can elevate my space at home.

During Casa de Memoria's Tercero Online Auction press preview, Ram emphasized on creating an experience when styling your home, especially with art pieces. As someone who doesn't have a deep understanding and appreciation for art, I see myself investing in pieces that are practical, beautiful, and comfortable – for my workspace today and for my dream home tomorrow.

Quality Furniture

A piece of furniture is also art. And since you will be using them often, it is best to invest in essential pieces like a couch, chairs, or tables with the best quality, comfort, and, of course, design. Ram said that many of the Tercero auction lots will fit perfectly in one's home just like the set of upholstered Castilian chairs. To him, these pieces are a perfect fit in the dining area around a big table to surely treat family and friends to a luxurious dining experience.

A Timeless Vintage Piece

A room’s design can be taken to the next level with at least one antique item in every room. According to Ram, a vintage piece can fit into any home by pairing with contemporary pieces. For example, the 17th century Flemish Bargueño from the Tercero auction can add boldness to the room by accessorizing with jars and plants. He adds that it isn't frumpy and it brings so much character into a home space. Juxtaposing the old and the new can give rooms a more youthful feel, agree?

An Expressive Painting

As pictures reflect a thousand words, paintings are go-to pieces to convey special messages or stories in a home. For Ram, one can dress up a wall with “paintings that speak to you.” Tercero also offers more paintings and artworks by celebrated artists from the Philippines and different parts of Europe which Ram says can add a contemporary touch to a room. Among these are “Maternité” by Pablo Picasso, Oil on Canvas Portrait by Aldo Bahamonde, and a painting of Saint Anthony of Padua with Child Jesus.

A Touch of Quirk

Ram added that a room can use some quirkiness as it is always nice to throw an oddball into the mix. A statement piece, just like the Isabelino Style Mirror, can be placed on the center of your wall or on top of a dresser to instantly add personality to any space.

I suggest you explore the Tercero auction pieces at bit.ly/CasaDeMemoriaOnline if you're seeking different pieces that can spruce up your space. Part of the auction proceeds will be donated to the Santa Ana Hospital in Manila for the construction and maintenance of an enhanced quarantine facility for medical frontliners and COVID-19 patients.
