Art Photo Wall Decor

Design by Color

When it comes to choosing your wall decor by color, I don't generally like using bright, bold monochrome abstracts. I know some people like to use them because they want a patch of a certain color on their wall. My thought is that a throw pillow can add plain color, or a table cloth, but a photo can be much more interesting than that.

Most of the photos I like in these color categories will feature a certain prominent color, but not be overwhelmed by it, and usually not be monochrome. There are exceptions, such as "Chinese Fisherman on Rafts" in the blue section, which I find extremely calming.

I also do not include close-up flower photos. There are many of those to choose from, in any flower color you need. But very few stand out from the crowd.

Buy Lobsterman's Shack and Lobster Buoys This is one of my favorite of the reds. Besides the use of bold
reds, it has good composition in both the door area, and the
reflected scene, whether taken separately or all together.

Buy The Golden Gate Bridge with the City of San Francisco Behind This unusual shot of the Golden Gate Bridge, besides being a view
you may not have seen before, shows a good use of bold graphics,
strong color, and foreground/background interest. Notice how the
time exposure makes some parts of the city give off a greenish or
bluish glow.

Buy Water Pump in Znojmo, Czech Republic This one is flawlessly executed. It has a strong graphical composition

but it could also be used for its reds, or, more subtly, for the yellows.
