We all have happy childhood memories of summer holidays by the sea. Just the thought of the hot soft sand and the cooling surf is enough to bring smiles to our faces and relaxing recollections. And this is why a popular theme for wall art is beach prints.
Sunshine is a natural mood enhancer, whether outside the window or in a photographic print.
As you may have read on my About page, I grew up by the ocean and spent many joyful hours playing football on the sunny beaches in Cameroon. Beaches, therefore, have a special place in my heart and are one of my favourite locations to shoot photography.
It’s some of these beach scenes you’ll see in this article, including photos taken in Nazaré, Portugal. All the scenes are available to purchase as fine art prints.
The importance of décor for wellbeing
Good interior design is about invoking positive moods, whether calm and relaxation, comfort, happiness, pride, or even romance. How we feel in our home or place of work influences our overall emotional wellbeing and also our physical health.
What’s more, having a feeling of influence over our physical environment – our interior spaces – brings about further benefits to wellbeing. We feel we can make a space our own and be ourselves in that space.
How beach scenes can lift mood
Successful interior design schemes lift mood. They make the best use of colour, light, tone and uplifting visual themes. Beach prints of summer fun by the sea imbue all of these qualities as you can see from the accompanying photos.
Sunshine is a natural mood enhancer, whether outside the window or in a photographic print. Coupled with the happy memories we all associate with the seaside, beach scenes become a fantastic decorative addition to just about any type of interior.
Importance of wellbeing in different settings
Any interior has a vital contribution to make to human wellbeing. This contribution is particularly the case in the home, where comfort and a sense of security are essential.
But wellbeing focused décor is also beneficial for businesses, where workspaces benefit from being positive environments for both staff and customers alike.
Attractive beach prints of sun-kissed sands, appealing blue waters, and strolling beachgoers can look good in a residential living room or a small corporate office, and many more places besides.
Aerial beach prints
Some of my favourite photographs of beaches were taken from a height, producing these beautiful aerial beach prints you see. Aerial-style shots provide an expansive view which can be a fantastic way to increase the sense of spaciousness in smaller interiors.
Take, for instance, the above shot of surf-paddling holidaymakers enjoying the crystal clear aqua green sea. They’d make any room feel more spacious, lighter, and emotionally more cheerful.
Summer scenes every month of the year
While not everyone enjoys the intense heat of summer, most of us appreciate the visual beauty and brightness of this glorious season. That’s why summer scenes of beaches and surf make excellent subjects for decorative art prints throughout the year.
The colours of the sun-soaked sand and sea – such as tan, teal, and turquoise – provide delightful contrasts to go with wider interior décor schemes. In autumn and winter, when mood can be affected by shorter days and wintery weather, beach art prints will be a perfect tonic.
Add summer beach prints to your interiors
It would be wonderful to have a beautiful beach scene right outside our windows. We’d be considered some of the luckiest people in the world. For most of us, however, that’s simply not a reality.
Summer beach prints are the perfect alternative. You can enjoy the uplifting visuals of a summer beach, whatever your interior, and regardless of the season outside.
