Decor Trends that Shaped 2017

From curated gallery walls to statement antique mirrors, last year has had beautiful trends that shaped decor, and Art Dallas created these custom works in 2017. 

Print On Unique Substrate  

IMG_6932.JPG

'Custom' is Art Dallas' middle name! Art Dallas can provide a variety of custom solutions to solve your design problems. For example, how do you meet the corporate requirement for a travel theme at a hotel lobby bar, meet local code standards for surfaces in a food and beverage area, and do it in a way that is cool and unique?  

Art Dallas has created some unique works of art utilizing our in-house printers. This particular client is a lover of music and wanted to show it in a big way! The Art Dallas art consulting and design teams found a way to take classic records and bring a contemporary flair to this space. 

 

Cover Every Inch In Art

 Finding a style that best fits your space is one of the Art Dallas Art Consulting teams' favorite projects! Each work was custom framed in a reveal frame to allow the artwork on canvas to really pop! This client's love for abstract artwork matched our own!

Abstract art has been with us in one form or another for almost a century now and has proved to be, not only a long-standing crux of cultural debate, but a self-renewing, vital tradition of creativity; we know that it works, even if we’re still not sure why that’s so, or exactly what to make of that fact.

 

Custom Framing Everything

IMG_20170329_183047_506.jpg

Turn your walls into a cohesive gallery with unique frames of beautiful antique mirrors.

From concept to completion, Art Dallas worked with the hotel owner and an interior design firm to find the perfect frames for this space. We developed an eye-catching collection of custom frames filled with convex and antique mirrors. With the space in mind, custom frames were selected and then strategically placed. The grand presence of the mirrors, which has the effect of a large-scale work of art, helps to unite the other elements of the space to create an inviting area for conversation and cocktails. 

 

Wood Elements

IMG_6238.JPG

Art Dallas creates artwork from many different substrates. Wood is a nature lover's interpretation of beautiful decor! Bringing in the elements of the outdoors into your space is a great way to warm up a room and give it life. 

Art Dallas was recently presented with the task of getting creative with a map! We put all of our custom resources together and this beautiful work of art was created. Then our print shop partnered with our digital design team to create a clear and concise map of the region.  After the piece was routed for the river, the Art Dallas Print Shop printed this beautiful central map. The Blue River is Art Dallas' custom antique mirror in Blue Haze, and the sparkling effect comes from the silver properties used to create our signature antique mirror. 

 

Wall Mural

When it comes to wall murals, you can find a design in almost every color, style, and pattern to suit your interior, but what are designers predicting as the biggest trends for 2018? The fantastic thing about the current time is that there isn't even one overriding trend. People are embracing their own tastes and individuality. We think of wall murals as art for your entire wall because they can change the atmosphere of a room dramatically.

Vinyl murals provide a lasting and timeless look in addition to traditional artwork. Art Dallas' vinyl murals are fully customize-able, allowing for the client’s imagination to be fully developed into a lasting impression.

Wall Mural designs can speak volumes about the tastes and personalities of the heritage of the spaces they occupy. They also can tell the story of the owner, infusing the space with character like a piece of art.

Just Add Color: Easy ways to spruce up your space

When it comes to giving any room in your space a new look a large color palette should be your muse. There are so many gorgeous hues and when executed well they elevate life in any space.

Raise The Bar 

This striking sculpture adds just the amount of striking red overhead to make any scotch sipper swoon. 

Power and boldness are the emotions red works demand. One large statement piece  is the perfect way to gather people in a public living space. The best part of using a bold color might just be making the mundane feel special. What was once a neutral living room has become interesting.

Luxe Lighting 

The lighting matches the mood of the artwork setting off the fine detail in the work. Professionally lighting your artwork will make it shine.

When faced with the task of bringing depth to an otherwise dull space, artwork is always the perfect solution as well as the lighting that illuminates the work. When lighting artwork in your space, you can utilize layers. Chandeliers create ambient light. which give a beautiful, warm glow, to your space but does not light artwork well. Art lighting is specific to each piece.

Swoon Worthy Swirl 

Custom made marble wall mural 

If all things marble are the key to your design-loving heart, but the downfall of your bank account, try marble vinyl, Murals Wallpaper offers a much more practical alternative by way of wallpaper.

Art Dallas Vinyl murals provide a lasting and timeless look in addition to, or in lieu of traditional artwork media. Our vinyl murals are fully customizable allowing for the client’s imagination to be fully developed into a lasting impression.

Mirror Mirror 

Thanks to its captivating look antique mirror shows how far updating the classics can take you.

These natural elements add major glamour to any room. The cultured and regal aesthetic of the vibrant precious metal that is layered on the Art  Dallas Antique mirror has proven to be timeless and enduring in its appeal. These works are a lovely addition to a neutral environment, and appear luminous in the soft glow of diffused, natural light.

Artful Glow

Art Dallas struck a beautiful balance with sculpture and backdrop in this lobby.

Interior design is like a three-dimensional game of chess: You have to think about space both vertically and horizontally. In some cases the space feels too large, and you have enough space to swing dance in the living room. You must break down these rooms and create spaces with scale. In an expansive room, needs different sized artwork. Creating separate spaces with large art pannells is always a beautiful option.

Color of the year 2018

It's an interior design moment we wait for all year, the Pantone Color of the Year. This is the defining hue that takes its cues from the year behind us, and attempts to set the tone for the year ahead. This year, the color experts at Pantone followed up on 2017's Greenery by selecting a hue that's as unexpected as it is refreshing: Ultra Violet.

Ultra Violet, or Pantone 18-3838, is a complex, celestial shade of purple, veering toward the cooler end of the color spectrum, that calls to mind the vastness of the galaxy, the power of spirituality, and creative expression in all its forms.

pantone-color-of-the-year-00-1512592323.jpg

Because it has both warm and cool temperatures that are inherent in it, it has more versatility than people might think it has. Not only do purples mesh together marvelously, they also serve as strong complementary colors — perhaps paired with last year's Greenery. Ultra Violet, in particular, speaks to the mutability of contemporary culture.

Here are some of the works in gallery that feature this years color of the year Ultra Violet!

Screen+Shot+2017-12-07+at+10.15.11+AM.png

Its worth noting that purple has a tendency to come into vogue at important turning points in history, and that turbulent times are often, in their turn, crucibles for artistic expression. Purple was a favorite color of the Fauvists in the revolutionary first decade of the twentieth century, and had a heyday with musical artists like Jimi Hendrix in the late 60s and early 70s, at the apex of the Countercultural movement.

Could the rise of Ultra Violet in 2018 by a sign of a cultural renaissance to come? It's too early to say, but we have high hopes for this complicated, contemplative shade of purple.

Custom Antique mirror Bar Top

Art Dallas Created a custom antique mirror bar top with a major fairy tale feel/ The glass was printed with the lux wonderland pattern in house then hand antiqued with a range of custom mixed colors to give it the glam style for the booth!

Art Dallas produces handcrafted Antique Mirror that captures the feel of real antiques. As the popularity of Antique Mirror grew, Art Dallas realized the market was being poorly served by an automated process from overseas - so we recovered a time proven orgo chem process that produces custom hand crafted mirrors indistinguishable from vintage in appearance and priced less than inferior automated versions.

Custom Signage

creating unique signage is one of the services Art Dallas provides on a large and small scale. Each of the small works was custom cut then printed in house. 

Art provides a way to help cue your visitors  through navigation of your space without confusion - placed in the right location it can guide a person to key office locations.  Art Dallas can create a wide range of wayfaring art as well as more traditional signage that is aesthetically pleasing and creates a positive impression.

Glam 

The effect of mirror is calming, unifying, and maybe just a little unexpected. Image from the Art Dallas Collection. Walls enclosing beautiful spaces come in many different textures and finishes but creating an artful and elegant feel starts with a mirrored wall

Art over mirror or should we say Art over Art. This wall is one large multifaceted work of art! This eye catching installation is a simple solution to creating a focal point with artwork. Art Dallas art consultant's  ability to transform hospitality, corporate, and healthcare interiors by layering color, shape and texture has earned the respect of elite clientele.

Modern Bohemian 

Day or night, rain or shine stylish artwork is essential to completing your stylish design. These pieces can be prints of a classic Warhol or the coveted original. 

Canvas provides an elegant and stylish look and feel that has withstood the test of time. In keeping with that tradition, Art Dallas  provides printing and stretching canvas services that will add to the ambiance and style of your project. Art Dallas has a full gallery of original works of art!

Easy Breezy 

If you don't remember anything else, the artwork matters the most. While large originals can be a budget buster, if you are smart about styling your space an original from an up and coming artist will appreciate in value and ad some major lux to your space. 

The Art Dallas Gallery is an 8,000 square foot showroom in the Dallas Design District. It's an open design scheme showcasing our exquisite collection of original art and sculpture as well as our own Art Dallas products

Classic with a Hint of Mod

As a contrast to  antiques, hang a modern piece of art. The harmonious pairing enhances the distinct characteristics of both pieces. 

Whether you are uptown or downtown a leather frame is never our of place. It gives your space a certain edge that sets it apart but also keeps it on trend with fellow city slickers. 

 
IMG_91761.jpg

Rustic Chic 

There is something about rustic decor that makes a space feel cozy! Incorporating the right artwork can make even the most urban space look like its tucked away in a tiny french village.  The style is categorized by moldings and earth tones. 

The most dynamic, contemporary interiors are not confined to artwork of any singular look or period. Combining pieces that vary in period, shape, form ,color and culture  and arranging them harmoniously creates interest, timelessness and even some whit. We love the warmth, history and grandeur that antiques can bring.
