Whether we like it or not, summer is starting to wind down. Soon it will be time for back to school, sweaters and raking leaves. To keep the spirit of summer fully alive while it is still here, this week we are spotlighting five of our favorite beachy or water-inspired prints from five different artists. Whether you choose to decorate with the ocean in mind during the summertime months or all year long, you will find what you and your home need here at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.
On the Coast
Here in Maine, we can’t help but be partial to lighthouses and the rocky coastline that makes our state so distinct. Artist Charles Wysocki has created an engaging and scenic view of the Rockland Breakwater Lighthouse in his Rockland Breakers Print. A nautical landscape, sailors in the water, and of course, the lighthouse, make this accent a regal and imaginative image to hang on any wall.
Also drawing inspiration from beautiful Maine locations is artist Pat DeSantis. We love the colors and details in the Wells Maine Coastal Print, which creates a festive and youthful look into one of our prettiest coastal towns. This image is versatile as far as where you place it in your home; spruce up a hallway, a child’s playroom or a family room with the sights of Wells and the ocean.
Yes, we do also see the fluffy white snow on the ground in this Bonnie White print, and while we do not want to think about the weather getting colder as we get closer to winter, this image will give any wall a classic coastal look in your home. We love beachy reminders, and the calm water behind this cozy community is a beautiful testament to the coast, even when days are short and full of snow. Incorporate the nautical theme into your décor throughout the year; not just in the summertime.
With an uplifting quote almost as serene as the image, artist Bonnie Mohr has created a wall accent that will Renew and maintain a peaceful look and feel in whatever room you place it. The soft gold and blue hues of the sand meld with the calm water and landscape, inspiring relaxation among your everyday tasks and throughout the year.
Artist Christopher John employs a special technique in creating his images; digitally transforming authentic photographs to create and portray unique colors and moments. His Beach Entrance Print is especially extraordinary because of the way the white sand stands vivid against the warm glow of sun and clouds, and among the lush, fenced in greenery. This accent is sure to make a statement anywhere in your home, and complements your own photos of favorite coastal locations to admire all year long.
