Home decorating isn't just a fun hobby. It is, in part, what makes your home feel like a home, allows you to express your personal style and in some cases what gets your creative juices really flowing. No ones home is decorated exactly the same but there are those that really stand out to guests as memorable and one of a kind, usually because they're decorated in a unique way. Fine art photography is one creative choice when it comes to home decorating.
Photography as art is actually a varied art form because its beauty is really in the eye of the beholder. There are many places with fine art photography for sale- from the obvious art galleries and art shows to less suspect places, like department stores. Some people even find the best bargains for sale at yard sales and second-hand stores.
What makes fine art photography so unique is that it is an art form that captures a particular moment, emotion or sentiment through a photo of something real. Much of art is abstract and subjective and although photography pieces can be the same, they are usually very true to life photos that depict beauty in everyday things.
Using this form of art as a decorative statement in your home is a great way to show off your personal style and make a special statement with your decor. Adding a few fine art photography pieces around your home can make a world of difference when decorating. For instance, a big, blank wall can look incredibly chic if the right piece of artwork is displayed, even on its own. If you go this route, make sure you get something that is eye catching yet understated so that it doesn't stand out too much if the rest of your home decor is also subtle.
Another great idea is to have an entire wall full of strategically placed fine art photos that guests can enjoy browsing when they visit. If you're feeling truly daring, try taking some of your own nature photos or photos of something that you find visually pleasing and frame it yourself.
If you're looking to add a personal and unique touch to your home decorating, this is definitely a way to do it!
