Artwork for the Home | Mim Design

It can be hard to picture the transition of a work from stark gallery wall to domestic everyday setting. However the experience of living with an artwork allows a much deeper appreciation and understanding of an artists’ work – discovering new details, observing subtle shifts in light throughout the day, shaping the mood and feeling of a space and dictating further art and design purchases. The work of Olsen Irwin artists Melinda Harper, Michael Johnson, Paul Davies and Matthew Johnson are feature pieces in the stunning interiors below from Melbourne design firm, Mim Design. And while these perfectly manicured interiors may be a far cry from your everyday family life, they do offer some style cues that can be applied when styling a room around an artwork, from allowing a work to take centre stage to picking up on subtle colours and tones with accent accessories and figuring out the appropriate scale of work for the room.
