What is important to create a calm and focused study
A study is a place for quiet writing or reading alone.
These days, you may find yourself not only reading books in your study, but also staring at a computer screen as you write or read.
When decorating a study with art, it is important to first arrange the interior so that it is calm and allows you to concentrate.
There are three points to consider when creating an interior where you can concentrate.
(1) Fewer objects and a clear space
If there are too many things in your eyes, you will be distracted, so to help you concentrate, we should reduce the number of things in your study.
It is important to keep things tidy, but I will review how much of it I can keep track of.
Too many things may conversely take away your peace of mind.
Having an amount of things that you can manage will give you a relaxed mind.
A clean desk with few things allows you to concentrate on reading and writing.
It is important to arrange your desk area first.
After preparing your study, choose your favorite artwork to hang in your study, and you will find the perfect piece for you.
(2) Interior design with peaceful tones
For a study where you read and write, it is recommended to use a calm color scheme.
Using bright colors as points of interest can be a refreshing change of pace and a source of energy, but if you use a lot of vivid colors, you will be distracted by the colors.
Choose furniture in soothing color schemes such as brown, white, and black.
Wooden furniture is also a good choice for relaxation.
(3) Display your favorite artwork
Having a favorite piece of art will make you happy and make your study a comfortable space.

If you are going to hang it on the wall near your desk, choose a medium or small sized painting.

It is recommended to hang small paintings in your study because you can see them up close when you sit at your desk.

Hang artwork on the wall above your desk
When displaying artwork in a study, it is recommended to hang it on the wall near the desk.
It is important to balance the painting with the furniture and to match the height of the eye.
Let’s take a look at the placement of paintings on the wall near your desk.
Decorate according to your eye level when standing.
Considering the balance of the overall interior design of the study, we recommend that you display the paintings at the height of your eye when you are standing in the room. This will give the study interior a sophisticated look and make it easier to view the paintings when standing and walking around.
If you want to display a medium-sized painting, we recommend that you display it at eye level when you are standing so that you can easily view it from a distance.
If you want to view art at your desk, hang it low on the wall.
When you are in your study, you are often sitting in a chair in front of your desk.
Therefore, if you hang a painting low on the wall so that you can see it from where you are sitting, it will be easier to view the painting when you change your mind.
If you want to view art while sitting at your desk, I recommend hanging a small-sized painting that can be viewed beautifully from close up.
We hope you will create a cozy study room by decorating it with beautiful artwork.
