Who says art needs to be big in order to be beautiful? Small rooms and cosy corners are areas where a touch of beauty can really enhance the space, and give it character.

Here are some pretty cool picks for different spaces.

1. In the nursery or guest room
I love the way this nursery room designed; it's classic and luxurious but also airy and light. The simple floral paintings complement the room well - with a generous amount of white space, and a hint of elegance in the gold frames.

2. A reading nook
The rich magenta and royal blue of the lounge chair is somewhat balanced by the bright floral paintings. The result is a reading nook that's cosy and warm.

3. Over a mantelpiece
The blue-grey tones in the landscape painting mirrors the blues of the fireplace, and the grey folding doors. The yellow of the tulips lifts the entire mood of the space, making it more inviting.

Landscapes in a painting never fail to bring a touch of serenity into a home.

4. Above a side-table
Three is not a crowd when it comes to similar (but different) paintings placed together. Don't you just love the cheery colours coming together to form a pretty palette of its own?
