A few minutes up the river from where I took the picture in my previous post, I came upon a small cove tucked away behind what looked like a solid row of hedges. However, on closer inspection, I found this beach-like area located off the main river. Even though this is part of the river, a photo like this creates a coastal vibe. The sun glistening off the water, small beach, and a peak of blue sky between the branches, reminds me of an estuary near the ocean. However, a river photo is a great way to get a beach vibe when going to the ocean isn’t an option. So, if you want to update your space with a coastal vibe this summer, rivers are the perfect solution!
A few weeks ago, my family took a trip to a local park. It was a bright, warm day, and we took a walk along one of our local rivers. As we started our walk, I took the picture on the right, which shows the rolling river flowing and the white water rapids. I love the flowing water, and the contrast of the trees and the concrete. It’s the perfect combination of nature and man-made elements brought together. A similar photo would be the perfect addition to any space. You can also create a similar look at home by adding a live plant or tree to a room. Whether you choose to make additions to your space by adding a plant or adding a picture, you can easily bring the combination of nature and man-made elements into your space.
