This Is the Art You Should Buy, Based on Your Personality
Tell me who you are and I will tell you what art to buy. People often get nervous when buying art: "Will it match my décor? Will I like it over time?" We say: Throw all those questions out the window and focus on your personality instead. The wonderful thing about art, is that you get to reflect a piece of your personality on your wall through a beautiful photograph or a vibrant print.
Are you a diehard sartorialist? Do you love traveling? Or maybe you live to escape to the beach? Today, we're playing curator by dissecting 12 personality types and making art recommendations based on taste and interests. Which art personality are you? Grab a hammer and nails and find out.

If you're a minimalist at heart, chances are you don't want a busy colorful painting to take over your carefully edited space. Instead, pick monochrome pieces with texture or graphic interest. Black and white doesn't have to mean boring.

If you enjoy snapping away on vacation, or even around your city, we'll make it really easy for you. Have your own photography blown up and framed, and create a personable gallery wall. For a more edited look, print your work in black and white.
Channel the cool kid in you, and give your home an urban edge. If you love all things street art, skateboarding, and alternative music, you're in luck. Tons of photographers these days are snapping candid shots of cool kids everywhere. Better yet, they're usually very affordable.
If you like the outdoors, you'll love staring at beautiful nature all day long even more. Take your pick of greenery from painted landscapes to stunning nature photography, and live your very own Planet Earth.
If you're a graphic designer or an architect, you probably love clean graphic lines. Transfer this onto your walls with a series of graphic prints. Color-coordinate them with your décor, or run wild with bright eclectic prints.
You often dream of faraway places, you always have a passport in your purse, and you're constantly a hop and step away from your next trip. Collect photographic souvenirs and cover your walls with photography from past trips, or from trips you're hoping to take. It'll be like escaping a little every time you get home.

From Anna Wintour to Kate Moss, you live and breathe fashion. While your closet is probably filled to the brim with designer tags, you walls could also use some of your sartorial sense of style.
You're always dreaming of Paris or the South of France, so bring France to you. Buying art is all about reflecting the things you love, so embrace your inner Francophile, and cover your walls with a few French words. You might even learn a phrase or two.
In every aspect of your life, you're a collector. You know what you love, but you're also smart about your purchases, and you want to invest in pieces that will increase in value over time. Do your research, and invest in promising up-and-coming artists. Just don't forget to love what you buy.
You're a traditionalist as far as décor goes, and you might be reticent to add more contemporary art in your décor, but that's exactly what you should try to embrace. Classic décor comes to life when mixed with bold modern art. Start slow with monochrome pieces that will make an instant statement in your home.
