Why Wall Art Matters Most In Interior Design

Too often in interior design, we see wall art treated as an afterthought. Its what gets dealt with last, long after the final coat of paint has dried on the walls and all of the furniture has been artfully arranged, if it gets dealt with at all.

However, if youre a little nervous to give wall art such a prominent role in your design plans, dont worry. Use this post as a guide on how to accurately choose pieces that will mesh with your existing space and you will have a harmonious interior. By Tara Mastroeni

Why Art is Good for Entrepreneurs

Artists are the ultimate entrepreneurs. Thats why a trip to a museum is so inspiring for founders.

BY SAMUEL BACHARACH
Co-founder, Bacharach Leadership Group (BLG)@samuelbacharach

Who is more entrepreneurial than an artist?

Million-dollar sales boost art loan industry

Art lending business is booming, according to the first comprehensive poll of the industry, conducted by the research firm Skates and due for publication on Tuesday, 4 August. The report calculates that art loans could account for more than $10bn in 2015, at least twice the 2011 level, and could grow to become a $100bn market.

Digital Artwork becomes tradeable and scarce on the Bitcoin block chain

Could Museums Become Victims of the Booming Art Market?

The art market continued its upward climb last week with unprecedented results at the New York auctions. But when Jasper Johns's Flag (1983) makes a record $36 million at Sotheby's (see "Rothko Reels In $45 Million at Sotheby's $343.6 Million Contemporary Evening Sale") or Peter Doig's Pine House (Rooms for Rent) (1994) fetches $18 million (also a record), at Christie's (see "Epic Christie's $852.9 Million Blockbuster Contemporary Art Sale Is the Highest Ever"), it may not necessarily be good news for all.
