Whenever we are outside, it’s easy to acknowledge the beauty of nature.  We can see it, feel it, hear it and touch it.  But once we move indoors we easily forget about it.  A good way to bring some of that beauty inside where we need it most is to buy nature photography to hang on the walls of our homes and offices.

Not only will this allow us more time to appreciate the wonders of the natural world, but it can also help us to decorate our rooms to bring out their best features.  By arranging just the right piece or pieces of art in just the right way, we can alter the perception of a room’s size and shape to create the effect we want.

For example, if you have a small, square room and you want to create the illusion of more length, you can do it with pictures.  One way to do this is to arrange several pictures in a horizontal line on one wall of the room.  This will help to make the room feel longer, but that isn’t the only thing that’s important; the subject of the pictures has an effect on this as well.  That is where natural photography plays its role.  There are so many natural subjects that contain strong horizontal lines that can help to accentuate the feeling of extended length.  Some examples of natural art with strong horizontal lines might be  a sunset or sunrise, an ocean or beach front, a mountain range, or even a field or meadow.

Likewise, prints with strong vertical lines will give the appearance of higher ceilings in a room where the ceilings are low.  Again, natural art prints work very well with subjects such as trees, lighthouses, or even something as simple and dramatic as a single tall flower.

On the flip side, if you have a room that is long and narrow and you want it to appear more square, you can do this quite effectively with art as well.  In fact, large natural prints can pull this illusion off in a very dramatic manner.  Simply hang a large framed print on one of the end walls of the narrow room.  This will instantly appear to bring that wall in closer to create a cozier feel within the room.  A large field of flowers or any type of landscape works especially well for this.

So the next time you going to be doing some redecorating, be sure to buy natural art photography for those rooms that need some improvement!  By using these types of photos for decorating, not only are you bringing a bit of the outdoors in, but you are also giving yourself the opportunity to enjoy nature a little more while we making your living spaces feel more inviting.
