Tone and scale

Remember to match the tone and scale of the artworks to your interior. You may also go with different genres but make sure to balance the tone and scale. For example, you can put black and white photographs along with charcoal drawings or monochromatic paintings.


You can also put some beautiful collage on your wall especially if it’s huge and offers a lot of space. Put together small art pieces and create a collage masterpiece. You can use different sizes of mirrors or other fascinating objects of your choice.


Your decorations and artworks should fit with your interior theme where it can be traditional or modern. Get more classical pieces for a traditional theme and contemporary art for a modern concept.

Read and note

Magazines can greatly help you find more art ideas, along with reading and writing down information from décor magazines and blogs.


Each artwork has its unique meaning. You need to at least understand and appreciate those meanings to give value to the artworks for a long time.


Balancing everything is the key to a beautiful interior. Each art piece should have its own place and ensure as well the right scale. After putting the designs in one place, determine if it gives the right feeling and if it achieves a good balance between its content, color, and shape.


Being consistent with your design is also recommended. The theme of your interior is your guide to having related and consistent design. You can organize the pieces by its medium, genre, artist or color.


Choose the art that you like or love to feel more fulfillment and happiness on your side. Properly design art pieces into your interior and make sure to match everything accordingly.

Now JASRAC (Japanese Society for Rights of Authors, Composers and Publishers) has formally begun a further step in its mission to enforce copyright in a range of public space. On September 25, 2017, the Sapporo District Court in Hokkaido began the initial oral hearings in JASRAC’s first case against haircutting establishments that are allegedly playing songs for which JASRAC administers copyright. The barbershop owner claimed that he was using music lacking copyright over the past three years for which JASRAC demands royalty payment.

The royalties arrears, as JASRAC has calculated for the past three years, is in the range of under a few hundred dollars. Over this single case the fight seems exaggerated, but considering the numerous barber shops and hair salons throughout Japan, this signals a warning to thousands of establishments that they may be required to pay up if the case goes against the defendant in this case. In June 2017, he claimed JASRAC had told him that he could ignore the annual warnings they had been sending him, and was surprised this year to be sued formally.

JASRAC’s has been ramping up its pressure for the rights it claims for musicians and composers increasingly vigorously and consistently, and sees this litigation as part of this process toward greater consistency in enforcement. The claim by the defendant in this case that he did not need to pay attention to the infringement warnings probably should not constitute a waiver of JASRAC’s authority to seek payment, if the copyright has actually been infringed to begin with. And even if the defendant can win based on this circumstance, it is unlikely that other violators would be let off the hook and JASRAC will continue to push for royalties in more and more spheres.

October 10 update: Meanwhile, in another case JASRAC initiated against an alleged infringing public establishment, Takamatsu restaurant and bar Jamaican Corner BROWN’S, the defendant chose to admit to copyright infringement and settle with JASRAC, paying what it has been charged, though a representative complained that JASRAC’s policy of distributing royalties collected from establishments like his is opaque.
