Styling with art: Marble

This week, we take a look at how to style with a marble artwork. Chris Mitton's sculpture 'Brick' is hand carved from the same marble favoured by the masters. Now, when using marble, we can run the risk of making a room look like it belongs in a Greek restaurant, but between Chris's tounge-in-cheek work and making sure you keep things fun and playful, there's no need.

Styling with Art: Cartography

This week, we focus on styling a room around art that's just a little bit more complicated and detailed, cartography. We chose a piece from Stephen Walter, London Subterranea, as our subject due to its wonderful detail. It may feel intimidating to try and style around such detailed work, or even overwhelming but beleive us - it's actually so much fun. They key is to look to the colours in the peice, pick them out create and simplicity around it.

Styling with art: Cut-outs

Using Kristin Gaudio-Endsley's painting, 'The Shirt' as a spring board for this weeks room, we focus on summer trend, cut-outs. An abstract artist influenced by organic and manmade patterns and colours found in both internal and external environments, Kristin's works ask the viewer to participate in interpretation. Cut-outs beg to be interpreted but in terms of styling, we thought that we'd chose pieces that call back to it, imitate the palate and let the work speak for itself.

Styling with art: Architecture

This week we concentrate on architecture. We've chosen Cuboid N°01 by Slavomir Zombek as a starting point. While it may not be a piece of, or indeed about, architecture itself, the mixed media element and bold architectural shape made it a perfect work to go by. After all, with art as in life, a concept doesn't always need to be taken literally.

2 lovely gays 10 favourites from Rise Art

One from Brum, one from the shires, both obsessed with good design. Finding each other in the big city where a mutual love of all things interiors was born.

Jordan and Russel believe that each individual element of a room should have its own voice and speak about you in some way. Here's their pick of 10 vocal pieces on Rise Art.

Styling with Art: Moroccan

Inspired by the short lived Summer we experienced earlier this week, we decided our 'styling with art theme' would be Morocco. The sun-drenched purples and ochres in 'Inishkeas,' meant the limited edition silkscreen print by Scottish abstract artist Barbara Rae CBE RA, was perfect.

Styling with Art: Bright Colours by Tiffany Grant-Riley

Super Future Kid’s ‘Slobber Song’ is without doubt a statement piece. It’s playful, off-the-wall (if you’ll excuse the pun) and a real talking point. If it made a sound, it’d be a Basement Jaxx classic with just as much energy-perfect for a workspace or studio. Make it the focal point of the room set against a crisp, white wall. I paired it with updated design classics, objects with clean lines and block primary colours with a subtle nod towards the 80s.
