Our homes say something about us. Are we messy or clean, classic or modern, do we prefer minimalism or abundance? They way we decorate our homes likewise reflects who we are and how we want to be perceived by our guests. Some people spend significant time and energy to make their homes perfect, even hiring interior decorators to help them find the vision they want for their living spaces.

Twisted Tree and Mountains

Dinosaur National Monument, Utah

One of the most popular types of photography for interior design is nature photography. As in the image above, nature photography shows the natural world in all its beauty. This image was taken at Dinosaur National Monument in Utah, and the dead, twisted tree in the foreground helps lead the viewer into the mountains and sky in the background.

30" x 45" Print of Twisted Tree

Office

This image can easily go in an office or living room. Here you can see a 30" x 45" print on an office wall. This will help you to remember the beauty of nature while working at home. The colors match well as the image is not vibrant, so it goes with brown and grey.

Etosha National Park, Namibia

Wildlife photography can be incredibly beautiful. A close up image of a lion, such as this one, brings the view into contact with a majestic creature and creates a bond between the viewer and subject difficult to achieve any other way. The eye contact in the image above, taken at Etosha National Park in Namibia, really makes the viewer become part of the story.

Living Room

Taking this image and placing it as the centerpiece of your living room will transform a simple area into a fabulous living space. You and your guests will be in constant awe of the majestic lion that looks over your conversations, seemingly standing watch. Above is a 30" x 45" vertical shot, which fits nicely here above the fireplace and between two bookshelves.

Leaf and Sand Abstract

Luanda, Angola

Abstract photography is one of the purest forms of fine art photography, which can take simple objects like the leaf and sand above, and turn them into works of art. When the subject becomes cloaked in mystery, the viewer will ponder what they are looking at exactly, and this investigation causes wonder. Wonder causes interest. Interest can turn into fascination.

40" x 60" Print of Leaf and Sand Abstract

Living Room

Here the abstract image is placed in a living room. Since the room and wall are larger, a large size is more appropriate. This 40" x 60" image will command the attention of anyone walking into the room.

Monk image walking

Thimphu, Bhutan

Travel is one of my favorite pastimes, along with photography. So of course it makes sense to offer a wide variety of travel photography images. The above is a buddhist monk in Bhutan walking down the stairs from his temple. The temple was full of other monks, thus the stairway is full of shoes facing the opposite direction. This powerful image captures the essence of travel in Asia.

Living Room

Here the image is placed in a living room. Again, due to the size of the room and wall, the print shown is a large 40" x 60". This helps to fill the space and ensure everyone in the room is captivated by the image.

horse eye to eye

Santa Fe, New Mexico

This is a close up of a white horse with a blue eye. This type of close up animal or wildlife photography creates a connection with the viewer due to the eye contact. You can imagine being up close to this horse and seeing his beautiful eye for yourself. The image was taken outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico.

30" x 45" Print of Horse Eye to Eye

Bedroom

As the image is white, it is good to place in a room of similar color. The blue eye will stand out, but the white horse will blend in nicely as it does in this bedroom with light colors. This image is shown as a 30" x 45" print, which is sufficient for this wall/room.

Starburst in the Trees

Inle Lake, Myanmar

Another image of nature, this one shows a tree farm near Inle Lake in Myanmar. The viewer can imagine laying on the forrest floor, looking up through the symmetrical trees as the sun is starting to get lower in the sky. The pattern, broken only by the starburst, creates the right balance for the viewer.

40" x 60" Trees and Starburst

Living Room

Here the image is shown on a sitting room wall. Even though you are in a city or even an apartment, there is no reason you cannot feel a connection to the outdoors with a beautiful image of nature photography such as this. As the room is large, the image shows a 40' x 60" print, which is appropriate to command the presence of visitors.

Notre Dame Sunset

Notre Dame is a famous church in Paris, and a landmark known throughout the world. This image was taken just after sunset, which the sky was still glowing pink. Many people either have fond memories of a visit to Paris, or have dreams of going one day. Either set will enjoy this type of image.
