This is the Pop art inspiration we live for! Get inspired with us!
What better to add to a home than personality, soul and color? Pop art brings us an emblematic but subtle expression of social criticism along with a stylish and colorful artistic vibe that it just fits right in any home decor. The art movement that first began in the UK back in the 50s, quickly made its way across the world to spark the interest of artistic minds such as Andy Warhol, who came to be a pioneer in this art, as well as other incredible artists. Today, it’s nothing short of an iconic art movement who will forever be remembered.
Let’s take a journey to the mid-century era to discover more about Pop art inspiration and how to use it in home decor to bring out the soul and spirit of the style.
It’s the mid-century era and color is all around. Art is taking common every day life objects and pop culture references into true masterpieces that live on forever. Home decor is all about creativity, color, uniqueness and a closer relationship with natural materials and exciting furniture pieces. But, what if we mix both?
Pop Art came in a time after Abstract Expressionism had been a big hit, and it came to reintroduce identifiable imagery with references from mass media and pop culture into people’s lives, where they used to see big abstract interpretations of life and its deep meaning. It all started with four New York artists, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, James Rosenquist, and Claes Oldenburg. These artists will forever be known as setting the tone for the pop art movement around the world.
The big idea was to incorporate the images people were becoming used to see in pop culture, as well as advertising. Advertising was on the rise at the time, and it only made sense that it was represented in a form of art, trying to keep up with the changes that were happening in the post-war world. The result was an art movement full of colors, iconic expressions and a little bit of irony added to the mix.
Pop art is everywhere. This art movement has inspired people all over the world, especially great interior designers, and that’s why including this art movement in your home decor could not be a more special way to pay homage to the mid-century era. We’ll show you just how easy it is!
We always love to find interior designs with a touch of pop art. Reminiscing the 50’s and 60’s, this trend is certainly one that won’t go out of style. Bringing liveliness into a home, with its colorful tones, comic strips, celebrities and social criticism. You don’t want to ignore this movement!
From wall decor to accessories, colorful furniture pieces to patterned rugs, you can easily add this movement into your home decor with something as simple as a colorful mid-century furniture piece that contrasts against a white wall with pop art paintings or even wallpaper. You can even stick with pastel light colors in your furniture and place a bright pop art painting on a wall. It will be an accented piece that will catch anyone’s attention, as well as bring every other piece together in perfect harmony.
