The principles of design can be a bit overwhelming. But decor is all about personal taste. It’s all about arranging the elements to perfectly fit the space and allowing it to be enjoyed. Horizontal wall art is typically the standard when it comes to decorating walls of the home. This is a perfect alignment for landscape, nature, and wildlife photography. There is more detail and information when a photograph is taken horizontally.
For large spaces like above the couch in the living room or above the bed, horizontal wall art works best. These are the focal points when entering the rooms. You want to hang a piece that is inviting. It should serve as a welcome home anchor point. Allow the piece to bring a smile to your face every time you see it. There’s nothing like making your home the most tranquil environment to be in after a long from work.
There’s something truly lavish about horizontal wall art. First off, it creates a beautiful scenery feeling. It makes the wall come to life. Images of horses running across your wall is simply stunning. Better yet, having the horses splash through water is truly a sight to behold. Horizontal images are best for wildlife art. You get to see the animals in their breathtaking environments. This allows the elements of nature to be part of your home.
WALL ART PLACEMENT
For some placements tips, wall art hung above furniture should not be wider than the width of the furniture. A great tip to know is that the art should be about 50-75% the width of the furniture. Remember, it’s all about creating balance. The look of the home create the feeling of the home. Let your unique personality be displayed through your decor. You will always find peace and happiness at every corner of your home.
STORY BEHIND THE PHOTO
Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer. Early evening. The sheer scale and also the grace with which horses move make them ideal subjects to shoot. We are accustomed to seeing horses run on land, but they are equally impressive in the water. They take on an amphibious nature — half running, and also half swimming in slow motion. Above all, my objective was to display the flow of their manes with the movement of the water.
Firstly, I started to observe their timing and tried to synchronize mine with theirs. They have a constant rhythm to their movement; the horses moved in tandem with the water. I was determined to capture both the water and the horses at the instant when the water splashed over their legs and torsos. I failed many many times, but finally, I did get this shot.
As you can see, the visual lines of the water break align with those of their manes as a result.
