Know Your Inner Nature

Everybody has a style that’s uniquely theirs, and one of the best things about nature photography is that it can easily be incorporated into any style. Whether you’ve got a boho chic approach or a coastal style, there’s a shot of nature that will work for you.

To determine what your own nature says about the type of wall art you should look for, think about what speaks to you. If you’re a deeply passionate person, perhaps the fiery autumn colors of Living Legend will appeal to you. If you’re all about serenity and inner grace, then perhaps the calm blue skies and smooth-edged pebbles of Rainbow Rocks will represent the balance you want in your space.

Add A Pop Of Color

Wall decor is the perfect way to introduce additional color to a space. Even if you have a neutral color scheme, a bright pop of color on the wall will make your room seem more inviting and engaging. Additionally, you can use color theory to change the mood of your room. For example, when you choose a print like Ocean Lullaby, you’re bringing bright blue into your space. Blue is associated with tranquility, sincerity, and calmness.

Stick To Your Aesthetic

While living room wall art can provide beautiful contrast and visual interest, you don’t want to stray too far from your home’s aesthetic. Wall art should provide focal points, not distractions. If you’re having a hard time deciding what fits into your home’s aesthetic, black and white images are always a safe bet. For example, Fountain of Life provides a sense of grandeur and motion, without the potential to clash with your existing decor.

Picking wall art for your home doesn’t have to be hard– actually, it can be really fun to find just the right piece. Max Foster’s fine art nature photography has something to fit any wall art need; we invite you to spend some time having a look to find that perfect piece.
