Some of the toniest designers use art to take their projects to the next level. The unexpected and unique is always a good idea. And original art and sculpture are by nature unique.
Budgets run the gamut so children's art is a great place to start. Here Barrie Benson uses children's art as the one accent. This kitchen is crisp and clean but the artwork takes it to another level.
A great hack is framing your child's art in over the top gilded frames. These can be found in local antique and thrifts store. Children's art has always been a delight to me. The more color the better.
On my trip to Ireland, one of my favorite hotels had all sorts of art-painting, folk art, etchings and wood sculptures. I was so smitten with these felt tulips made in the Netherlands I opened an account with the company. I have a few colors available at the shop and hope you agree they add a spark.

Unique art and sculpture abounds on the web. Some of my favorite places to hunt are Chairish, Etsy and 1st Dibs. Sculptures are effective room accents lending a dimensional aspect as well as curves and flow. As noted, budgets vary but they say art is an investment and there is no doubt it provides a sense of joy.
