So why wall art?
Wall art matters more than ever in our households, telling stories, linking us to our past and sharing experiences allowing us to escape our daily stressful lives whilst bringing warmth and joy into our indoor environments.
So Indeed, wall art and photography matter a great deal in our homes, which is why we will mention the reasons that you should add them to your home, office, apartment or cottage. as well as mentioning their many valuable benefits.
1. They make it easy to add Colour to a Dull Space
Choosing colours to add vibrance to a space, can often be a daunting challenge. There are so many varied shades of colour, the possibilities can seem endless, which can make it seem difficult to know exactly what kind of vision you desire for your home, office, apartment or cottage. But there can be an easier way, you can use your artwork to inspire your choice of colours.
It can sometimes be good to think about your wall art and what colours or themes they might incorporate and then match your wall colours to these, either contrasting the colours in the artwork to make the wall art stand out, or by subtlety matching the colours and shades in your art to the ones in your wall and decor.
Of course you can always keep it simple, with simple colours or white walls and instead place your focus on adding some amazing wall art or landscape photography pieces. This allows your artwork to be the main focus.
The colors in the artwork will truly add more intensity and colour in your space. The colors in your artwork can then become the shades, colours and focal point of your room, allowing you to add more colour into your home.
2. They make it easy to Form a Point of Focus
A key principal in the world of interior design is the fact that your space should have a point of focus. The point of focus is intended to draw your eye to the item either letting it dictate the style and ambiance of the space or to tell a story through the image, such as a place to have visited or spend a good time at creating a memorable connection.
As a result, you can decide to make a wonderful piece of artwork the point of focus of your room!. at Sebastien Coell Photography we create stunning wall art from around Europe, Scandinavia and the UK, so why not check out our pieces of art for sale to add some dramatic artwork to your wall by clicking here
Using art as your point of focus can tell a great story from your life reflecting back to one of your favorite travel destinations or the place you got engaged at or married at, giving that emotional connection and sharing these moments with friends and family.
Wall art prints make this possible whilst creating beautiful interiors, you could for instance hang your selection of art over the mantle of a fireplace, on a wall above a table or sofa or above your bed. Moreover, you could take the opportunity to create a gallery wall that would certainly add more drama to any space, such as a dining room, an office, a den, a living room, a bedroom or even an entryway.
A quick note on size!
When you are in the process of deciding which artwork would you would like to incorporate into your home, you must consider the size of the space and the size of the print. Artwork or photography prints that are too small will become obscured by furniture that is nearby.
Also, artwork or prints that are too massive in size will seem like they are dominating the space. You should measure your walls in order to fully realise the exact amount of space that you have for your artwork or prints to make sure they will have the right sense of size for the space.
3. They allow you to add Texture and Depth to your Walls
It cannot be denied that all artwork is not created in the same manner and that all artwork does not present the same type of visual effect. They however all offer one thing in common, they add depth and texture to you walls and connect you with locations or moments from your past. They add vibrance, a pop and a story to what could be a boring space.
When you are using any type of wall art, or prints from us such as our Scandinavian landscape photography or wall art prints of the UK. It is a good idea to give consideration to the types of frames and type of artwork.
For instance we offer three types of frames as well as Canvas prints at Sebastien Coell Photography, and these can all compliment a space differently, by changing the texture and depth in your space.
Be sure to think about the overall look including how the media or framing will affect your overall scene, not just the artwork or print.
4. They Provide a Finished Look to your Walls.
Reflect on the spaces that you have previously lived at that seemed to not have much inspiration in them. That could be your first place once you graduated from University or your first apartment that you had when you left home. There is a strong likelihood that those places had a sense of being somewhat unfinished. In many cases, such spaces also have predominantly white walls.
This can actually create the perfect white canvas and for such spaces that seem unfinished, wall art and photography are great options to make a space have a more polished and finished look.
Thus, when you place art and photography in your space, this makes the space seem more welcoming instead of just being a space that is cold and functional.
You will sense that your space has an elevated sense of appeal and design when you choose to include artwork that is unique to you and shares your artistic merits and memories.
5. The Benefits of Art and Landscape Photography in your home
- They Link to your past
Framed photographic prints and wall art have the ability to bring back memories of the past and bring the past into your home allowing those memories to be retold. We can't physically travel back in time but memories visualised and shared are a good alternative.
- They create Memories of places visited
Perhaps you have visited some really amazing places. Then art and photography from those places can keep your memories alive for a long time.
Every picture has a story behind it, it could be your favourite walk location, favourite part of the country, where you got married or engaged. That special place you have an emotional connection to.
- They Bring nature into the home
When you place photographic prints and art on the walls of your home, this allows you to bring more of a sense of nature into your home. People often spend much time in their home and are not able to enjoy being out in nature as much as they would like to do.
But with the usage of wall art prints and landscape photography, you can have the beauty and calming effect of nature somewhat in your life, which is beneficial for your health, mind and overall well being.

People frequently tend to decorate their walls without much consideration of the items and design. Sometimes people do not even bother to put anything on their walls.
But your space does not have to be bland and boring. You have a life. You have interests. You have a story to tell. Thus, you can pick out some sensational prints to show of your personality, or places you have visited, expressing your interests.
Wall art prints can bring a great deal of joy to your home, they help us connect to the past, and or locations we have visited. We may have even shared a special moment at those locations.
They also allow us to bring nature into our homes, lighten our mood and share our story and personalities.
