Artwork Inspiration for a Cozy Room

If you have a space in your home that you’re looking to turn into a cozy room for optimal rest and relaxation, you can’t forget to complete it with the right decor. The artwork you choose for this room will help set the tone for the look and feel of the entire area, but finding pieces that provide a dreamy and ethereal feel to the space can be hard to come by.

Or perhaps your cozy room has more of a neutral aesthetic. No matter your definition of cozy, these handcrafted mosaics will give you the inspiration you need to design a room that you’ll enjoy spending every moment in.

Get Comfortable with Nature

Just as you would enjoy relaxing by a waterfall, out in the sun, or strolling by a moonlit sea in real life, artistic depictions of nature scenes can help make a cozy room feel complete. Look for pieces with water features, greenery, outdoor landscapes, and other natural elements.

For a space with a more neutral palette, try this Cascading Waterfall Mosaic Mural. If your room has warmer hues, this Flaming Golden Sun with Rosy Highlights Mosaic Medallion will be the perfect complement with its yellow and coppery shades. A cozy room with cooler tones will feel right at home with this Reproduction of Van Gogh’s The Starry Night Over the Rhone Mosaic.

Life Imitates Art

Nothing will make a room feel cozier than artwork inspired by it. Adorn your walls with scenes that define what cozy means to you.

Take, for instance, this Greyscale Beagle Mosaic, featuring two dogs who exude what it feels like to be warm and snug. Just looking at this piece–or one like it–will have you feeling calmer and more at ease.

Surround Your Cozy Room with Neutrals

Bright colors are not the hallmark of a homey space. Instead, try including decor that falls under a more neutral color palette. Shades of white, tan, grey, and blue are the best bet for a color scheme that’s appealing to all of the senses.

Don’t forget, decor doesn’t just apply to walls. Give your cozy room’s floor some love with this Brown and White Bohemian Print Rug Mosaic. Its mesmerizing design will have you feeling comfortable and relaxed in no time.

Opt for Dream-Like Pieces

The rise of the moon and stars signal to us that it is time to wind down and rest. Using wall art with these images can help to do the same.

This Minaret in Clouds Mosaic or this Reproduction of Delamare’s Fairy Moon Mosaic can transport you to another world with their fairytale-like imagery. If you want to pay homage to one of the most famous artists in history, a classic Reproduction of Van Gogh’s The Starry Night will undoubtedly set the right tone.

The Finishing Touch to a Cozy Room

While you may first be inclined to focus on the lighting, furniture, and linens that will turn an average room into a cozy one, don’t forget about the overall ambiance. Plush blankets, copious throw pillows, and soft colors will certainly get you started, but the wall art and accent pieces will provide the finishing touch.

If you’re on the lookout for artwork that will fit in seamlessly with your cozy room aesthetic, you can browse an extraordinary array of handcrafted mosaics from Mosaic Natural. Find stunning images, magnificent reproductions, and one-of-a-kind pieces that will make your space feel like home.

8 Celebrity Homes in Need of Mosaics

What is it about celebrity homes that is so entrancing? For many, it’s the feeling of being able to peek into a world far from our own—one where indoor pools, custom chandeliers, and sprawling gardens are commonplace. Seeing how celebrities bring their personal style to their spaces allows us to get a rare glimpse into their lives outside of the spotlight, as we notice what colors, textures, lighting, and art they choose to incorporate into their homes. 

Customization is a common theme of these houses. Each tour shows how the actors, musicians, or tastemakers brought in their personal style. Today, we’re thinking like designers and have matched eight of our favorite celebrity homes, taken from the Architectural Digest home tours, with a mosaic from our catalog, building upon their personal style with our own. Our mosaics help to bring a higher sense of elegance and artistic flair to any space, and we’d love to see them in any of these homes:

Jessica Alba

For businesswoman and actor Jessica Alba, her home is a clean and classic sanctuary for the family. The palette is primarily created from neutrals, with soft tans and creams paired with dusky and patinated grays. It exudes quiet elegance, with gentle light pouring in from the ample windows and an emphasis on creating a space that is all about family. For Jessica’s home, we’d recommend our Cream Rug Mosaic. This piece fits nicely in a variety of layouts and features scratch-resistant tiles, making it a great choice for a busy family.

Devin Booker

NBA start Devin Booker’s Arizona home is elegant and masculine, where mid-century touches are blended with contemporary textiles and textures. Amber and chocolate shades dominate the space, giving it a homey and timeless look. We love the idea of continuing the home’s modern sensibility with a modern mosaic—for his space, we’d pick the Rectangular Pattern Mosaic. This piece combines the old-world aesthetic of mosaics with a contemporary, abstract pattern that fits quite nicely with the many textures present in Devin’s home.

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Saarsgaard

It’s always interesting to see how creative people bring the feeling of their city into their homes, and Maggie Gyllenhaal and Peter Saarsgaard have done so beautifully in their Brooklyn brownstone. From the marble sink to the old-world fireplace to the brick wall, their apartment feels particularly Brooklyn-ish. It even has a mosaic already—a lovely rendering of a bear, which would pair perfectly with our Tree Marble Mosaic. We think Maggie and Peter would appreciate the aged, organic feel of this piece and find the perfect place in their cozy space.

Hilary Duff

Much like herself, actor Hilary Duff’s home is fun, energetic, and full of life. A space for her family to live with joy and enthusiasm, the Los Angeles home is filled with dynamic patterns and playful shapes. And nothing says fun and sunshine like a pineapple, which is why we think this Pineapple Motif Mosaic is a great choice for Hilary and her family.

Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats

Bold personality and elegant statement pieces are at the forefront of musician power couple Alicia Keys and Swizz Beats’s oceanfront home: abstract, futuristic sofas sit next to sculptural side tables, under an undulating ceiling. Unique and colorful art objects and wall works punctuate various aspects of the space, nodding to the couple’s creative energies. For a place like theirs, we’d recommend this Flower Mosaic, which features a large, detailed blossom and would look fantastic next to their art collection.

Dakota Johnson

Nature is the focus for actor Dakota Johnson—her home features warm, sunny greens and plenty of raw and natural materials. The antique-leaning furniture, like her velvet sofa in a dusty caramel tone or the well-loved living room rug, communicate a sense of comfort and willingness to open up her home to guests—it has a real California energy. For this home, we’d recommend our White Wildflowers in a Green Vase Mosaic. The natural, hand-crafted beauty of this mosaic goes well with both the tones and feeling of Dakota’s space and would look beautiful dappled in the afternoon sunlight.

Kendall Jenner

Model Kendall Jenner may be relatively young, but her taste in interior design bridges old and new in a manner that demonstrates her appreciation for the range of design history. While antique wood comes into play throughout much of the house, arches are the predominant decorative motif—an ancient and familiar shape that endows her space with a royal, Mediterranean atmosphere. We’d suggest matching those arches with one of our own: the Woman in Archway Mosaic complements the architecture of the house, as well as the antiques in Kendall’s collection.

Michael Kors

With a view of Manhattan, it doesn’t take much to create the perfect apartment. Such is the case for designer Michael Kors’s relatively quiet and minimalist New York space, where dark wood and subdued colors allow impactful wall art and the stunning view to take center stage. To match the view and Michael’s art selections, we’d recommend our Woman Comforts Herself Mosaic, which offers a striking addition to his walls.

8 Beautiful Mosaic Reproductions to Elevate Your Interior Design

From the early cave paintings to modern-day graphic design, humans have always loved decorating their living areas with art. Moreover, we have enjoyed decorating with familiar art or reproductions. Displaying a replica within your home not only upgrades the area but allows you to express your personal taste and eye for art as well. Reproductions are usually mass-printed canvas or paper copies of famous paintings. They are typically relatively inexpensive but unremarkable. 

Mosaic art reproductions are distinctive and provide texture that traditional paintings do not. They can also be displayed in ways that a print or framed painting cannot. A mosaic with water-resistant tiles can be showcased within bathrooms, spas, and pools. A regular print or painting may be damaged by being near water, let alone surrounded by it. A sealed mosaic offers a long-lasting and resilient work of art that can be incorporated into your space in a variety of ways.  

By using mosaic reproductions, you can curate the ambiance and environment that fits your interior design goal. The following mosaics are exceptionally stunning reproductions that will add value and interest to your interior design.

Girl with a Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer

Originally painted by Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, Girl with a Pearl Earring has been enjoyed by millions since its creation over three hundred years ago. This mosaic reproduction shows the work as we’ve never seen before with texture that you simply cannot get with a traditional print reproduction. The vibrant blue and gold of the girl’s attire are made all the more vivid with naturally colored quartz tesserae. Each hand-cut piece of tile gives this artwork depth that is otherwise impossible with a two-dimensional painting.

This framed work of art will add personality to any room but will create the most conversation as a living room centerpiece.

The Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci

Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa is one of the most recognizable works of art of all time. Its Renaissance-era ambiance is classic yet timeless. In mosaic form, the Mona Lisa comes to life with carefully cut and meticulously placed tiles that fit together remarkably. This particular wall art offers both natural shades like green, rose, and brown, as well as opulent copper and gold tones. It will unify a plethora of color schemes and decorative elements. 

Display this famous beauty where she will be seen by as many visitors as she deserves. 

The Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli

Reproductions can replicate the entire original work of art or present a new composition with the familiar charm a viewer loves. This mosaic depicts the face of Venus from the famous Roman-mythology-inspired painting, the Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli. Each handcut tile piece is meticulously sized and placed to create a masterpiece that does justice for the original painting. The framing allows for an intimate close-up feel. This work of art can exist amongst others, but is strong enough to be displayed as a centerpiece. 

Sunflowers by Vincent van Gogh

Known for his splendid use of color and texture, Vincent van Gogh created a series of effervescent still-lifes. His sunflower still-lifes are well-known for their stunning arrangement and vivid shades of yellow for which Van Gogh was famous. This arched mosaic arrangement allows you to showcase a beautiful and familiar design with a new, textured, and engaging composition. Display this work of art within your living areas and decorate the space with lively flowers to fully embrace the charm of this reproduction. 

Maude Adams as Joan of Arc by Alphonse Mucha

This splendid yet delicate work of art was not produced for a gallery or museum. Instead, it was composed to inspire excitement and awe. Czech artist Alphonse Mucha created this piece as a commercial ad promoting actress Maude Adams as the legendary Joan of Arc in a one-night-only performance of The Maid of Orleans by Friedrich Schiller. In print form, this art is captivating and engaging. As a mosaic, the work is spirited and full of Parisian-inspired charm. This mosaic is perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, and bathrooms with romantic colors and accouterments. 

Cherubs by Raphael

Reproductions can be full-scale replications or focus on specific parts of a large mural or scene. This mosaic depicts the two cherubs from the bottom of Raphael’s Sistine Madonna. In isolation, they will add distinctive and adorable charm to any room within your home or business. They can also be incorporated into a large, Renaissance-era-inspired display for an instant elevation of style and sense of humor. 

Fairy Moon by David Delamare

Create a contemporary design scheme with imaginative artistry and fantastical elements. This reproduction of David Delamare’s Fairy Moon is an enchanting work of art. In the center of the piece is a fairy as she sits upon a crescent moon. The two figures seem to be engaged in conversation, the likes of which we can only imagine, thus making this artwork a fitting conversation starter. The dynamic scene will engage visitors and create a fairy-tale ambiance. You can further decorate the room with fairy or fae decor and celestial elements to cultivate a space of wonderment and light-heartedness. 

Basket of Fruit by Caravaggio

Your living areas will always benefit from the addition of complimentary art. However, you may find that you need to incorporate art that is more subtle than a grand mural or landscape. A still-life is an excellent choice for adding color and pattern to your room without overwhelming any existing interior design.

This mosaic is an elegant reproduction of Caravaggio’s Basket of Fruit still-life. The tiles’ unique construction adds to the basket’s visible texture. The lush colors of fruits and foliage extend into the surrounding space. This piece is perfect for dining room wall art and makes a stunning and romantic kitchen backsplash.

When installing mosaics, it is important to consider the tiles or tesserae used. Mosaic Natural’s mosaics are water, splash, and stain-resistant, making them genuinely versatile works of art that can be enjoyed for years to come. These reproductions and others like them can be delivered directly to you. Elevate the appearance of your home or business and express your unique taste with an elegant mosaic reproduction.
