How to Work Moody Abstract Art into the Rooms of your Home

Moody abstract art is something I love putting in client homes. It’s so easy to work into a space, it creates instant impact, and it’s super affordable. What more could you want?

In today’s post I’m super excited to announce this month’s amazing art competition. I’ve teamed up with my mates from Urban Road to give you the chance to win any art of your choice from their website. You can scroll right to the end of this post for all the conditions and details around the giveaway. But before you get into entering, let’s discuss moody abstract art for a minute.

Do you find it a bit tricky to select the right piece of art for your space? It’s not something you should choose at random by any means. But at the same time, the last thing I want is for you to feel paralysed by this sort of purchase.

So today I want to banish the confusion and uncertainty for you. I want to show you a few ways to rock moody abstract at in the rooms of your home. And by the end of this post, you’ll know exactly which piece from Urban Road is going to work for you. Then you can enter to win it! All of the images here are from their dreamy new Reverie collection by the way, which is absolutely beautiful.

1. Pull Bold Colours from Decor & Replicate them in Artwork

This is the first approach when it comes to working moody abstract art into your space. And I’m starting with it because it’s usually how I tackle an art purchase for my design clients.

A room that feels resolved usually feels that way because the pieces in the room speak to each other. It doesn’t happen by accident. The colour in a cushion is often repeated in the pattern of a rug. The ornaments on a dining table might pull colours from the upholstered dining chairs or napery. You get the idea. You want all of the different design elements to feel somewhat related.

The same goes for the abstract art you choose. Look to the colours you already have in your room and then choose art that features those tones. The art doesn’t have to have every single colour in it that you have around the space, just one or two.

This approach makes a room feel cohesive. Your eye glides across the space and all of the elements play together. They bounce off of one another, and it just feels rather complete.

Of course, you may not want your room to feel like this. You might want one dramatic punch of colour, or not much colour at all. I’ll discuss the other approaches to working with moody abstract art next.

See it at play above: The purple and white Astro II Artwork speaks to the tones of the floor rug. Sisters from another mister! And Below: The moody green, brown and ochre tones of the Lavendaire Artwork are replicated in the table and its decorative elements.

“I find that people spend way too much time fretting over art purchases. Art doesn’t have to mean something to you any more than an armchair or cushion does. If you like the look of it, take the leap!”.

2. Choose a Piece or Art that Blends into the Scheme

The first approach is for lovers of a bold space; you want the art to pop and play with other vibrant elements in the room. The second approach I’ll explain now is about working in moody abstract art in a quieter, more monochromatic way. The end result is extremely calm, and very easy on the eye.

This approach work in rooms that whisper, not shout. You’re not looking for the eye to be stimulated when you’re in the space. You still need to look to the tones you have in the room and work with them, but you’re not trying to match a bright colour with another bright moment. It’s a blend of more subtle shades. The art colours will definitely speak to other pieces in the room, but it’s effortless.

The shapes and patterns in the abstract artworks will also be less dominant. They’ll be more fluid, less rigid and sharp, and they’ll feel more organic. Think long brush strokes, painterly drips, or scribbles. A softer, more random application.

Artworks like this that blends into the scheme shine best on walls that aren’t white. If you place even the most subtle abstract of artworks on a crisp white wall if will stand out as a feature. The contrast between the white wall and the colours in the art will be too far a tonal jump. So don’t be afraid to paint your walls in a stunning neutral tone like these ones. It’ll make such a difference.

See it at play above: The Quantum II Artwork is the perfect supporting player in this soothing dining room. It’s connected to the green and tan tones, but the approach is subtle. And below: A monochromatic living room is elevated with the watercolour vibes in the Coles Bay Art Print. It’s the focal point for sure, but not a loud one.

“Moody abstract art blends intrigue with passiveness perfectly; you can find yourself gazing into these pieces for ages, but they don’t have the literal or sometimes dominant nature of a large photograph”.

3. Contrast Bright Art on a Crisp White Wall

Moody abstract art doesn’t have to be dark or mysterious. It can be bold, bright and full of energy. If this is the sort of vibe you find yourself drawn to, then the contrast approach will work wonders.

The contrast approach is different to the first approach I discussed. In the first approach, you’re choosing art with colours that you’ll find in other pockets of the room. You’re hunting out a connection, and you want the pieces to speak to one another.

This high contrast concept is absolutely different because you’re not trying to connect the art to anything else. It stands alone as the star of the show. The colours are bold, for sure, and they’ll draw the eye the moment you walk into the space. It actually gives your home a bit of an art gallery feel. And I find this style of moody abstract art works in homes where the furniture and decor feels a little more eclectic.

The key to getting this look right though, is to ensure the colours in the room are all neutral. A crisp white wall is a must. The flooring needs to be subtle too. And the furniture and other decor is stripped back to black, grey and brown. The more minimal the feel of the room is, the more pop and punch the abstract artwork is going to have.

See it at play above: The Soho Artwork shines in this otherwise neutral space. The black frame adds another layer of impact as well. It demands to be seen. And below: The Pebbly Beach Artwork, while pretty serene, still pops on the white wall and gives the room a striking focal point.

    FLORALIA ART PRINT is speaking opulence to me. That distinct luxurious blue with injections of colour hues cleverly provide links to mid tonal pinks, greens and yellows for soft furnishings, such as cushions, bedlinens, drapes and a rug. The washed paint technique provides A sense of layered textures. Just a stunning artwork deserving a beautiful space to breathe and soar.

    I agree an almost impossible task!! But never let it said I am not up for a challenge!! I am usually drawn to abstracts or nudes or a Hampton style. Never art with “animals”…….but for some reason the “whimsy” and “completely “out of left field” of the Chanel Rodeo Drive, Cartier Upper East Side or the Chanel Fashion Week just spoke to me. I love all three!!! How fabulous would they all look in such a large size in my bedroom! Just adds a touch of the “glamour”!!!! I NEED 1 of these…………Thanks for the chance Chris!

    Hi Chris,
    I loved “Rocket Woman Art Print” it’s shapes feel organic to me but their application and the selected colours feel so energetic! I have a crisp white wall it would look gorgeous on . I like abstract art pieces in particular as they have a “choose your own adventure” appeal to them, the narrative of the piece can differ entirely depending on the viewers life experiences.

    I go by the theory that art has to either mean something to you or make you feel something. This must be why repeatedly I was drawn to RODEO DRIVE ART PRINT. Throughout school I was bullied for my height and referred to as giraffe. Now that I’m all grown up I look at that print and think that would be perfect for my bedroom. Not only do I love giraffes and Rodeo Drive, I have embraced and love my height! This would be a daily reminder that insecurity doesn’t have a place in my life.

    ’Tahitian Blue Art Print’
    This is just amazing and to me it instantly brings feelings of peace and serenity to mind. My only problem would be that I would need to hang it in my living room to share the beauty because if I put it in my bedroom I wouldn’t end up getting any sleep because I’d be staring at it all night.
    To the artist; You have an amazing talent with capturing the beauty and your hand painted pieces are just stunning. I can say without a doubt that I would love and appreciate any and all your masterpieces

    Out of all the outstanding pieces of artwork, I had an immediate bond with the “Horses 1 Art Print.” In this piece, you clearly see mystery through the small use of color, and it’s simplicity. What captured my attention was the secretive look of the horse as it’s face is not exactly shown but it’s hair and posture speaks for itself. You know how people say “the eyes are the door to the soul?” Well I do agree, however this artwork somehow portrayed a beautiful majestic and pure soul without having to draw the main attention on the horse’s face. It draws so much emotions and attention. Forward, when I took a look at the example of how this specific piece would look around a dining table, I just knew I chose right, “Horses 1 Art Print” makes the space look peaceful, wanderlust, as it resembles humble and relaxed energy, it takes appreciation towards the beauty of nature and animals. In conclusion, I want to thank you Chris Carroll for this opportunity and chance. Have a lovely rest of your day!

    Too much gorgeousness – I need more walls! I bought In Wonderland for my daughter’s bedroom and it looks awesome. Love all the fun animals and also the ocean and water prints. Torn between Go Wild which combines both and the beautiful colours in meteorology ‍♀️

    I wasn’t going to enter this competition because I didn’t think I needed any more art. Then I just saw your recent Instagram post and saw the Fashion Week print on the wall. It looks so amazing I must have it! Our formal room is a fairly monochromatic colour scheme with some colour in the cushions and I love that this print is the classic Chanel black and white with the cheekiness of the leopard and monkey. It will bring some fun into the space while still maintaining the formal and classic look of the space.

    FLOURISH ART PRINT is my pick. Love the subject matter, flowers. Gives a sense of beauty and calmness. The combination of the rich plum hues and soft pinks is appealing. Would look divine in the guest room I am trying to make into a luxurious, relaxing, home away from home. PS…. Gorgeous selection of art from Urban Road.

    Wow Chris you have made it very hard to pick a favourite. I loved your tips, I have always tried to find a piece that will stay for the long haul and now that I have stopped buying decor every time some new trend comes out I am excited to find a forever piece. I loved that you send pick a colour from your decor and go with that. I love the soho piece as I have add some olive green into our living room. I can’t say no to a Chanel piece although convincing my husband that Chanel with a giraffe is art might be another story

    The Coronavirus has made us all feel like staying at home more and isolating from the threat outside.
    Walking around our rented apartment, my mates and I (students), have commented how depressing how house is.
    Imagine if we actually had to self-isolate here for 2 weeks!
    BLACK AND GOLD LEFT ART PRINT would be the type of painting that I would want. The cheeky grin of the cocky immediately soothes me, reminding me that there is an entire world of nature outside, that is waiting to be explored – as soon as this madness is over.

    It would have to be Soprano as it reminds me of the big canvas that my daughter and I created that hangs in our living room when Kindy was shut on a public holiday. We couldn’t afford expensive art when we first got our house 3 yrs ago so we made our own and her work features in 3 rooms of our house on big canvases. And snow storm to follow it up because I love horses!
