If you search for images of “model apartments,” you will likely end up with a gallery of tastefully neutral rooms, purposely devoid of statement-making flourishes. Art Dallas is famous for its excellence in craftsmanship and Attention to detail on special projects.  Finding solutions that are both budget friendly and beautiful.

The term “mixed media art” is a broad definition that covers many arts and crafts, including collage, assemblage (both 2D and 3D), The use of mixed media began around 1912 with the cubist collages and constructions of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, and has become widespread as artists developed increasingly open attitudes to the media of art. Essentially art can be made of anything or any combination of things.

Collectively the Art Dallas Team has been art consulting for over 50 years. Out of the box thinking is the Art Dallas team’s greatest attribute. With an impeccable eye for space planning and design is combined with knowledge of project management that differentiates Art Dallas consultants from other art consultants.

Trends Forcast for 2019

The joys of the new year! While it is still a few months away, January first is an opportunity to leave behind old trends and embrace what is new. For design lovers looking for a head start on 2019 here are some of the forecasted trends for next year.

Bold Jewel Tones

Right now, We are loving deep, rich jewel tones with an edge. Bold indigo, hunter and emerald green, and dark teal all feel ready to have a moment in design. The introduction of art is a chance to infuse color and personality into a neutral palette. Think large scale photography, paintings, or even mixed media. When it comes to statement pieces, go big or go home.

Florals in the background

The traditional beauty of floral patterns, either abstracted or straight up chintz, will be the pattern to use. From table to mantel florals make an appearance in everyone's winter space. A  floral palate helps to incorporate fall without clashing with your everyday decor. Art Dallas gallery has several media options for beautiful floral artwork.

Big Backsplash

Simple, monochromatic kitchens have had a good long run, so we will be gravitating toward making a little more impact in their kitchens, whether that's with bolder color choices or graphic tiles. Either way, I predict we will be seeing more pop and punch in kitchens!

Sustainable Handmade Pieces

Items made by hand using sustainable materials like jute, rice paper, and clay will be in, in 2019. We see people needing these grounding elements in their homes as a way to feel more in touch with the earth and their roots

Acrylics

Acrylic can give a room the architectural structure it needs without taking up visual real estate. We see acrylic as a fantastic foundational piece in a small space, like an entry, to provide a surface that can be layered with more organic items and not feel busy.

New Landscapes on canvas

Landscapes with pops of color are perfect look outdoors from inside. Fall is here and we are loving landscape this season. Our canvas table is full of beautiful new works of art and we are excited to set the scene for you this fall with a the perfect landscape.

The Gallery is a showroom in the Dallas Design District. It showcases our extensive collection of original art and sculpture as well as our own Art Dallas products such as Flash, Antique Mirror, and our aluminum, copper, and canvas prints and murals.

Creating a focal point that is a lush forest or gorgeous mountain scape is a wonderful way to create a escape within your space. Evoking that serene feeling is tough to do in a crowded office or restaurant but when your guests catch a glimpse of serenity it calms the mood and centers the room. The most appropriate artwork for zen in high stress locations such as hospitals is representative nature art. While most of us would rather be in nature as opposed to gaze at an image of nature, a quiet hike in the woods, a walk on the beach, or sitting in a park listening to the birds is not always possible. Sometimes circumstances, like being ill, prevent us from experiencing nature directly. However, when we are unable to go outside, representative artwork can trigger memories and can serve as a vehicle for our imagination that allows us to take a mental vacation from our present circumstances

Art and Pizza

P1300061.jpg

Restaurant projects are some of the most fun! We know we all love pizza but pizza décor is delicious as well. Recently art Dallas had the pleasure of custom creating some of the beautiful pieces featured in Firo Pizza. The art Dallas art consulting team took great care in working with the owners and managers to create the perfect pizza loving atmosphere. 

Custom ageing the pizza paddles hanging on the wall to custom printing the signage as well as the large scale mural inside and out were all hand crafted in house at Art Dallas Inc. 

 
P1300056.jpg

Art Dallas printed the delicious menu on large scale chalk boards.  As well as some smaller signage featured around the restaurant. 

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 Dallas 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.

Another Key Feature of the space is the giant mural on the inside of the restaurant. We loved the texture and detail. Our design team created it specific to the favorite pizza toppings at Firo.  

Art Dallas started large format printing in 1993 - refining the hardware, software, media and inks for its digital printing process  to the point it's now an integral part of our core business.We now have a flexibility that's unequaled - we can provide creative design solutions ranging from prints on traditional papers, canvas, murals and wallpaper, as well as alternatives such as aluminum, acrylic, wood and more.

2019 colors to Watch

We're more than halfway through 2018, which means one thing: it's already time to discuss which home decor trends will be defined next year. On the color front, bright hues are poised to take center stage. We found some gorgeous featured artwork, but there is a whole new group of colors designers have their eyes on this year. 

pantone-colors-1533056279.jpg

To make a room feel larger, light to mid-tone shades are the way to go. The colors that surround us influence our moods and perceptions in the most powerful way. Colors and their placement can make us feel comfortable—or disconnected. To create a sense of continuity and harmony throughout your space, you need a nice flow of color; a balanced color scheme that seamlessly connects one space to the next. Art Dallas has a canvas table full of beautiful and bright artwork on canvas. Here are some works in the gallery that incorporate some of these bright hues.

Incorporate Antiques

Antiques can be given new life with a bright, bold fabric. Don't underestimate the influence a gorgeous antique rug can bring to the space. The fine blend of materials, bright and elaborate colors, or specific traditional patterns found in antique rugs are grounding in a modern design.

From records of your favorite artists to rugs, shadow boxes present a wonderful array of memorabilia for daily viewing. If you are not sure how to best display your items in a shadow box, don't worry! Bring in the items you would like to display and we will suggest an attractive shadow box design that will become a treasured family heirloom! Shadow box frames allow us to display almost any object.

Don't Underestimate the power of a good Frame. 

Don't underestimate the power of a good trim. Whether on the image, matting, or framed artwork, a border will instantly clean up any look. Custom picture framing and art selection should be an exciting experience. Our ongoing mission is to stay on top of the latest trends in color and design so that we can give you the best advice possible.

Finished Corner Frames, also known as Closed Corner Frames, are the ultimate in framing quality and craftsmanship. Hardwood frames are finely sanded on the corners to create an invisible seam while gilded finished corner frames are finished with a layer of gesso. They are then surfaced with gold leafing for a seamless design.

Start A Collection

Creating a collection will make your business feel more cohesive and artwork always makes amazing conversation for patrons and employees alike.  

 Investing in an original can be pricey but it is a long-term investment. Filling your new place with junk store artwork may be cost-effective, but it will not be worth anything in the future. Most cheap artwork is also not made with the best material ... don't substitute quality for quantity.  

Art Dallas is mindful to present art and artists that are budget-appropriate. The artwork is separated into categories such as lobby, corridors, waiting areas, break rooms, etc.  We continue to communicate and incorporate feedback. Once we have a good feel for what the client loves, we can fine-tune the selected work.

Mirror Makes A Difference

Double the amount of sunlight in your room by allowing it to bounce off reflective surfaces. Hang a large mirror directly across from the largest window in your room, or arrange an array of smaller mirrors to help brighten up the space. 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.

Look at the big Picture

Whether your  space is a personal residence, your business, or hospitality venue (hotel, restaurant, or spa), Art Dallas recognizes that each of those areas requires a unique understanding to meet an individual organization's art needs. Our experienced staff collaborates with your interior designers, facilities managers, and other key personnel to ensure that each project is executed on time and within budget while clearly expressing your corporate vision.

Listening to the needs of the client and integrating these values through artwork is our first step to creating beautiful art packages. Art Dallas' professional art consulting team members work to get the right feel for a project’s final message and what it says about corporate, hospitality, healthcare, or residential space. Art Dallas believes that the pathway to excellence in art consulting is through carefully listening to the client and integrating their wishes and values into the design process so that the complete art package reflects the client’s perspective and personality.

Installation is Important

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 small or large enough that you have enough space to swing dance in the living room. You must break down these rooms and create spaces with scale. An expansive room needs different sized artwork. Creating separate spaces with large art panels is always a beautiful option. 

Look for teams like DFW Art Installation with skills that are the perfect resource for art consultants, interior designers, businesses and homeowners.  You want a team to have experience and expertise in transporting, arranging and installing home, gallery, and office collections.  

No matter the placement of your art, the team should work with you and your surroundings to give your art the look and security that was intended. Tools are important as well. Your team should have a wide range of secure hooks, anchors, and brackets to use for installations that fit any location and style of art. Whether it is one piece or one thousand pieces, DFW Art Installation can assist with your home or business project.
