Is It Possible to Have a “Home” Without Art on the Wall?

Have you ever walked into a friend’s new house or apartment or condo and loved the living space and the furniture and floor coverings they had acquired BUT somehow it didn’t really feel like a “home”? What was probably missing was art on the walls.

It’s a quirk of human nature that we seem to regard wall decoration as something we do last when decorating our new abode. So here’s the question - Is It Possible to have a “Home” without art on the wall?

A company called Artwork Archive doesn’t think so and they have published an article on their blog about it -  We Need Art in Our Homes. Here's Why

It lists 7 reasons why:

  1. Art makes a home more human.
  2. Art lets you express yourself and encourages dialogue.
  3. Art helps us validate and recognize our emotion.
  4. Art stretches our boundaries and encourages growth.
  5. Art reminds us of what is possible.
  6. Art encourages us to be brave.
  7. Art breathes life into a home.

Isn’t reason #7 great?
