The right piece of art captivates, evokes a memory or a thought, can be re-assuring yet haunting and “still” the mind for deeper contemplation.  In the spa, it can transform, promote healing, inspire and connect your guests to the space.

When selecting artwork, consider your space and the mood you want to convey not only for your guests but for yourself and your staff. Artwork is personal so be sure select pieces that you feel strongly about.

A commissioned piece of art that enhances your brand can make a lasting impression.

Size and color are the two major criteria for selecting art to fit its surroundings. For any particular space, art that is too large will overwhelm and art that is too small will be lost and look out of proportion. The bolder the art, the more room it needs to breathe.

Cluster artwork in groups for maximum effect. Don’t be afraid to pair photography with abstract art and various mediums of different shapes and sizes to create a unique and sophisticated focal point.

The right lighting is key for showcasing art at its best. You may find that placing a picture light or track head above a painting is all the art needs to exhibit its brilliance.

Recessed track lighting provides illumination for this serene focal point

Remember, selecting and displaying art for the spa is an art in itself.  Experiment to learn what works and what doesn’t from wall placement and color to texture and style. You’ll be rewarded with interesting wall decor that stands the test of time.
