Art and interior design have always been intertwined. Artists set the tone, and designers pick up on those cues to create the spaces in which we live and work. At Mash Gallery in West Hollywood, we’re proud to showcase contemporary art that not only stands alone as beautiful work but also inspires the future of interior design. Let’s explore some of the upcoming trends inspired by pieces from our gallery.
Bold Colors and Textures
One of the most noticeable aspects of contemporary art is its use of bold colors and textures, a trend that’s making its way into interior design. Artists such as Haleh Mashian, founder of Mash Gallery, are known for their vibrant, textured paintings. This approach encourages designers to step out of their comfort zones, introducing bold color palettes and rich textures to create dynamic, visually exciting spaces.
Mixed-media art, where artists use a variety of materials and techniques, has been a significant part of the contemporary art scene at Mash Gallery. This style has inspired an interior design trend where designers mix different materials, like wood and metal, or incorporate various styles, blending modern and vintage elements for a unique and eclectic look.
Abstract art allows viewers to interpret its meaning individually. This freedom of interpretation is inspiring a new wave of interior design where personal expression rules. Expect to see abstract patterns and shapes in everything from wallpapers to upholstery, offering homeowners and interior designers alike a chance to express their unique style.
Sustainable and Ethical Designs
In today’s world, the importance of sustainability and ethical practices is increasingly recognized. This consciousness has found its way into various sectors, including art and interior design. At Mash Gallery in Los Angeles, many contemporary artists are leading the charge, focusing on sustainable and ethical practices that are reflected in their artwork. As a result, this practice is influencing the interior design industry, increasing the demand for eco-friendly materials, energy-efficient designs, and ethically sourced products.
These artists understand that their choices — from the materials they use to the themes they explore — have an impact on the environment and society. They choose to use recycled or sustainably sourced materials, minimize waste, and often incorporate themes of nature and environmental preservation into their work.
This focus on sustainability isn’t just about making environmentally friendly art; it’s also about sparking conversations around sustainability and inspiring viewers to think more critically about their impact on the world.
Art as Focal Points
Gone are the days when art was considered an afterthought in interior design. Inspired by art exhibitions, designers are now making art the focal point of a room and designing the space around it. This approach highlights the artwork and ensures that the design complements rather than overshadows it.
The Rise of Digital Art
The recent surge in digital art has opened up new possibilities for interior design. Digital art pieces from Mash Gallery have inspired a trend towards incorporating digital elements into spaces, whether it’s through digital frames displaying changing artworks or integrating smart home technology.
As we look to the future of interior design, it’s clear that contemporary art will continue to play a crucial role in shaping trends. At Mash Gallery, we’re excited to be at the forefront of this intersection between art and design, providing inspiration for designers and homeowners alike.
