In this modern age of plenty, we tend to have time for the finer things in life. We can appreciate good wine, take in a play and speculate on the meaning behind an artist’s vision. And this appreciation for beauty doesn’t stop when we reach our own front doors. The modern luxury home can be an articulation of refinement and artistic expression.
Why is art valuable
There’s something about sculpture, paintings or abstract works that can change our mood. The City of Perth has certainly realised this and is using public art to convey the personality of the city, including its heritage, diverse community and cultural identity.
While the city council uses its Public Art Strategy to beautify our communal spaces and work areas, what can you do around the house to express your unique outlook on life? If you’re designing your own custom home, you have a blank canvas with which to work.
A lot of artists use their craft to explore the concepts and reality of space and its limitations. Pablo Picasso is a famous example of an artist who tested the boundaries in his sketches and drawings, and his realisations have echoed through architecture for over a century.
Of course, attempting to capture the emotion in great art can be difficult, so why would it be any different when your materials are bricks and mortar? This is why it’s essential to pair your ideas with skills of master craftsman, such as the talented custom builders of Perth at Exclusive Residence. To us, each home is a masterpiece – it’s the realisation of someone’s unique vision for how they want to spend their lives.
Materials to expressive yourself
The materials you choose to build with will have a big impact on the way you enjoy the house, both practically and visually. Smooth, featureless surfaces such as concrete and glass can seem impersonal, but they also give a space an appearance of being clean and large.
Countering this kinds of choices with warmer materials, such as grainy wood or rippled metal, will add warmth and character, while absorbing sound and light to keep the atmosphere at a more even keel.
At the end of the day, you need to be confident that your home will be an expression of who you are as a person, and this is a journey that Exclusive Residence is the perfect partner for.
