Purple/Blue art prints with beige walls
Alexei Rebrov ArtJanuary 3, 2013
Do you think purple abstract art prints work with beige walls in modern interior? or will blue work better? Blue is a complimentary for beige though...
Original art is here:

2) http://alexeirebrov.com/collections/blue/products/abstract-print-on-aluminum-3731?hz=289902

Either is ok. It depends on the homeowner's personal preference.

Yes they are really cool. It depends on the owner though art is subjective. It also doesn't have to match the sofa or anything else for that matter.

@Cynthia I understand and it's true in general. This is theoretical question. How far does design "by numbers" need to go. I think blue works idea. with this interior but it has no wow, you know what I mean?

@Interiors Ideally, art doesn't need to match anything but owner taste but it's a conversation about what is art and what is decoration then. Maybe it depends on a budget(?)

Beige is neutral so any color can work. White is the best background for art---but you probably already knew that. :)

@Natalie Surprisingly white is not the best color. Most museums have very dark red, brown, green and navy for classical art. White is too bright. Unpainted concrete walls actually work better for abstract art (especially framed in white lacquer frames).

Personally speaking, this particular art does nothing for me. And I totally agree that coloured walls are fabulous with art...

I agree, art does look fabulous with colored walls---but white, doesn't have to be bright could be muted with a cool or warm undertone, will make the colors more "true". Switch out the white matting on the pictures you posted to the dark red, brown, green, and navy or the concrete hue you mentioned and see for yourself. Many art galleries have some sort of white on the walls-not bright---but White! CheerS!

Wonderful example Alexei! Your image went from vibrant/intense color (white matting) to more subdued/muted hues. So which is more "true" to the actual colors you used??? :)

:) I agree, this one doesn't look nice. White matting helped it pop. I need to admit it.

I agree the white matting looks best. If its being hung on a white wall, perhaps a wide white mat, and a thin colored frame will make a nice impact.
