How Art compliments different spaces
ART Compliments: Studies show that the colour in a room can directly impact your mood. The great thing about art is that you can bring these colours and emotions without having to paint the walls an overwhelming colour. When you have run out of ideas on how to decorate on your own even after flipping through countless luxury interior design magazines you can always turn to hiring an interior designer who is trained in the art of interior design and ensures that you’re going to get the space you want and the art that compliments it’.
There is no one better to give their perspective on this topic than UK Luxury designer, Cinzia Moretti.

How did you discover your appreciation for art and interior design?
I discovered it when I bought my first property in London. I didn’t like it, so I changed everything about it. I did everything by myself– cutting tiles, painting, etc. And once everything was finished, people came and told me to sell it to them. At first, I didn’t want to, but then I decided to sell it to them and move to a bigger one! And that is how we started.
I resisted, in the beginning, because my family comes from property backgrounds, my grandfather used to be a developer. And because of that, I didn’t want to do anything like my family, but then maybe it was always my destiny.
Introduce your work to our readers. How do you describe the work of an interior designer?
Very stressful. Most people think that interior design is just putting some colour, choosing fabrics– it’s actually a lot more than that, because in everyday problem solving and making decisions. Probably just about 10% of my day is designing, 90% of my day is dealing with technicality, budgeting, business, decision making, problem solving, and guiding clients. That’s the most of it.
How would you describe your own personal design style?
Oh my, my personal style, actually evolves all the time. I have to say I try not to involve my personal style too much, because I want my client to develop and depend on their own style. Because in the end, it is their house, not me.
That’s why the project we were doing is completely different from one another, one is more contemporary monochromatic the other one is more with pink and wallpaper. Another is industrial, another is more natural orientated, so this is why you work with different people and why we love exploring what is inside that personality, so I try not to push my style too much.
My own style is more contemporary, but a lot of historical jobs, like a Victorian house and Georgian houses, because I love the history of architecture and I love introducing many different architectural styles. My style is very contemporary but also weight attached, of some traditional elements. Antique pieces combined with contemporary look, that is probably my style, but my clients love to discover their own styles.
How does art fit into creating a feeling for the room you are designing?
I think that art is probably one of the first selections that we make because it will give the inspiration for the colours, the style, and help us decide the feeling of the room.
Art Compliments is one of the main principal focal points that we use, which is why we start by the client’s collection. If the house is stocked with pieces of art the clients have, we get inspiration from that, or we select art particularly for the client, or we ask for a bespoke piece by commissioning some pieces. There’s not a project where we do not consider the art inside.
Lastly, what advice do you have for someone wanting to change their space?
My advice would be understanding why you want to change the room. Is it because once you’re fed up with the look? Or do you want something new? Or because you don’t find yourself comfortable in the space?
So, there are two different ways you can change it. And I think the best thing to do is start with understanding why you want to change. If you want to change just for the look, understand what the look you have now is and what feeling you would like to create.
Once you know how you would like to feel in the room, understand, as well, how you will recreate a feeling by starting from a list of things in that room that do not create this feeling for you.
Then, start with images from Pinterest, to visually express the feel, not just from words, but from pictures. This is my advice to start!
