Photography is one of the most rewarding hobbies. The ability to capture the beauty of the world and frame it in such a way that it can evoke strong, compelling feelings within someone is priceless. And as photography technology only gets more advance each year, there is endless possibilities on what can be captured.
That is why photography is the perfect thing to compliment interior design. At their core they both represent the idea of capturing a mood or feeling and showing it off to the world. So below is a list of a few ways you can integrate interior design with photography to really add some flare to your home,
Paint to Picture
Photography is an amazing way to capture, not only moments, but the outstanding color that is on display in the natural world. Crashing waves of deep blue. Verdant fields of green. The orange, burning hues of autumn. And these colors translate well to your home color scheme as well. When you sit down to slap on a new lick of paint perhaps plan a photography trip and come up with some complimentary images to go with your new color scheme.
Perhaps you aren’t a dab hand with a paint brush, but not to worry there are many professionals around that will be able to work with you to achieve your vision. And if you need your office painted don’t be afraid to have a look around at what options are available to you.
Furnishing to Finish
Photos, much like your interior decoration, can say a lot about you and the mood you are trying to achieve with a room. To that end, what furniture you decide to furnish your rooms with will matter a lot when also deciding what photographs to hang on your walls. Looking at color on both and making sure they don’t clash will help achieve a softer, more welcoming mood.
The furniture you use and how you lay it out can also provide a lot of great opportunities for new photography work. Lots of modern photography utilities modern furniture and interior decoration to great effect. Not to mention it provides a great way of showing off your home to the outside world without inviting the outside world in.
Nature has always provided ample opportunity for budding photographers. The colors, the natural element, the shifting seasons. But making the trek to the wilds isn’t always possible. To that end a home decorated to the brim with house plants is ample for photography opportunities. When you are decorating your house take that into consideration. Perhaps you select some plants with vibrant, luscious colors to spruce up your art. Or maybe something greener and calmer to really go back to basics when it comes to your photos. What ever you decide, not only will house plants improve your photos, but will bring life and freshness to your home.
What ever you do, at the end of the day the most important part of any hobby is to enjoy your self and let your creative juices flow.
