Motivational prints often fit best in a modern, utilitarian environment like a classroom or office, but with the right piece you can use this category of art to complement almost any setting. If style and aesthetic appeal are high up on your list of important features, choose art that flows with the area in which you plan to use it. Colors are of vital importance when making this decision, and the wrong choice can turn a room with a smooth and tasteful appearance into a decorative disaster of epic proportions. If you want your new poster to blend in with your decor and make a more subtle statement, choose art with dominant colors that are similar to the main hues in the area. For instance, a piece of motivational word art that picks up the neutral colors of a room will help to define the space. For an approach that will allow your new artwork to stand out as the main attraction, choose energetic, vibrant colors that are complementary to the ones elsewhere in the space. If you decide to use this technique, matching the bold new colors in your art with smaller items in the room (like throw pillows or other decorations) is a great way to coordinate your surroundings and add a sharp kick of personality that everyone will love.
