Art is a form of self-expression. We have evidence to prove the art has been used by people of all civilizations and centuries since the beginning of times. Be it the caves of the cavemen or ruins of The Indus Valley civilization, the oldest known civilization of the Indian subcontinent, art has been a recurring and prominent aspect.
Art has been all prevalent, especially in the form of paintings. Over the course of centuries, the whole of the world has witnessed a major shift. From religious upheavals to political transformations and scientific and technological advancements, the face of the world is no longer what it used to be.
Everything that happens around or within us become a muse for those who use art as a means of escape. Even people who themselves do not paint resort to the medium of paintings to express themselves.
Every place you go to, you will find paintings hung on the wall or kept in a corner, on a table or on the floor. Each painting has a different story to tell. Each hue, each texture and stroke is a result of something extraordinary and invokes various different feelings.
In fact, there is no need to go any farther than your own house. We are sure that there must be at least one painting in your house, if not multiple.
Well, the thing with paintings is that they add life to your room. The colours and the depiction are sometimes the best things that could be used to further enhance your theme or idea surrounding the room. In fact, paintings can help you remind yourself better for your goals and dreams. They have the power to bring good luck, blessings, and love.

1. Drawing Room
Your home’s drawing room is the first place which you come in contact with when you enter your house. Similarly, anyone who comes to your house is first greeted by your drawing room and if the guest is a formal one, they tend to sit in there itself.

2. Living Room
As the name suggests, the living room is that part of the house where you spend the most time of your waking hours. It is like a small family space which sees all the laughter and playing.
When it comes to the living room, a painting that depicts continuity should be preferred. After all, you want love, happiness, and good times to stay in your home forever.
Thus, a painting of a waterfall will prove to be the best. The waterfall is the perfect illustration of continuity, blooming new life, and giving a definite rotational characteristic.

However, when you look closely, you will see naturist shades lingering at the edges of the flowers, making a powerful statement.
Kitchen is said to be the central point of your home. When it comes to decorating a kitchen, most people only make use of fancy cabinets and latest backsplashes. But what most people forget are paintings.
