Affordable seascape photography

One of the parts of a design project we enjoy most is helping our clients curate an art collection. But not everyone is interested in investing in fine art, and many simply want to fill their walls with affordable, “decorative” art. One genre of photography that many people enjoy living with are seascapes. We have found this type of photography to be a great way to add a graphic, natural element to a room, as well as a jolt of color. What’s nice about seascapes is that you can find very beautiful ones by lesser known artists at a variety of different price points, all of which give a room a very similar effect. Here’s a living room designed by Victoria Hagan, a big fan of seascape photography. INTERIORS_BY_VICTORIA_HAGAN_HERO7Another Victoria Hagan room, with a photograph by our favorite photographers, Elger Esserf1cac7f1f3956437d942cd03290281cd

mcgrath2 Designer Markham Roberts also likes to hang this type of art in his clients’ homes.

Here’s a little rendering of the sofa wall and how it could come together with one of these pieces. Waterscapes-Revised-7
