Abstract art can also help you establish a color palette for the room. You can take a color and repeat it in the fabrics or in the accessories. Combining styles is rather easy too. For example, you can pair up some traditional furniture that’s a little more ornate with simple, abstract art and the result will be a fresh feel that’s not old fashioned.
