A question we often hear from our clients is "what type of artwork should I put in my home?". Obviously artwork, like interior design, is a very individual choice both in style and budget, however there are a few tips and guidelines that you can follow in order to select the right piece for the specific space you have in mind.
First and foremost, you have to like it! It can be the greatest investment but if you are going to look at it every day you want to enjoy it.
What room is it for? Art for the kitchen can be very different to the art you want in your bedroom. Kitchen art is usualy smaller, oftern quirky or with inspirational saying t make you smile where as bedroom art tends to be more relaxing and reflective with soothing tones.
Think outside the frame! Not all wall art is a print or a picture, masks, clocks, stag horns etc can all be wall art and become a focal point for the room.
Get to know the artist! Know a little bit about your wall art, where did it came from and why it was painted ? It can bring extra depth and interest to the piece you have chosen.
At Paula Monaghan Interiors we have artists that can produce pictures to match your colour scheme and style, bringing thier work from all over Europe. We have a wide range of prints, oleos and murals that you can paruse and if you are searching for something specific we know where to look!

Bring in the New Year with a fresh and clean look that will enable energy to thrive around your home.
The idea of changing your property style can be daunting but at Paula Monaghan Interiors we can help you turn this seemingly large task into a manageable reality.
Some properties require only a few changes to create a different visual effect and overall feel, for example altering the soft furnishings with a textured throw and complimenting cushions or new curtains contrasting with your original colour scheme. Alternatively a lick of fresh paint coupled with some new wall art can make a big difference or how about adding carpet or patterned rug to provide a focal point as well as a practical warm feel to the room.
Lighting is very important and we are lucky enough to live on the Costa del Sol so why not make use of that beautiful sunlight and bring it into your home by using delicate voils that allow light to flow through or mirrors stratigically placed to reflect the natural day light. As the evening draws in wall lamps and table lights are peferct for brightening up corners. Placed properly a lamp can become a piece of art in its own right and we have a wonderful range of designer lamps that wont break the bank.
Enjoy a change in style and play around with additional furniture items from The Emporium and different colours to create your own design for 2019.
Our new spring items will soon be on show and we will keep you posted about our offers and sale items.
