Art History and Interior Design

Art History has influenced me a lot in my study of interior design in many ways. All the different time periods can be reflected in designs. I really discovered a passion for abstract expressionism while doing my painting. How awesome would it be to design a room or home for a client and be able to paint a specific painting to tie everything together. Or to design a room around a painting. To pick the colors out of their favorite artwork and make the space revolve around it. Like with the piece I created of the waves crashing on the beach. The colors are so bright and vibrant and compliment each other so well that it would be perfect to decorate around. Also the style of furniture can be influenced by the piece. I envision some modern style simple furniture with this particular piece.
