Spring is almost here and I was thinking about setting the mood for the changing season with wall art. It’s difficult to decide what to change out.
I think it’s been said to keep to one season or theme throughout the house as much as possible by choosing either silver or a bronze finish for the majority of your faucets and even door handles and hinges as suggested by my sister-in-law from Humble House Design.
Well I was looking at a horse photo hanging on my own wall this past week and it was interesting to note that the middle of the fine art horse photograph drew me in for an autumn feel while the edges of the horse photograph drew me in for the frosty winter feeling of the cold and silvery blue. It’s a photo of a horse galloping in the water.
The colors match well in my home. I have blues and orange colors throughout. However, as I sit on my sofa I look at a fireplace mantle without a fireplace insert. The opening is instead filled with a brilliant orange sunset and the silhouette of a Friesian horse on the beach I photographed in Florence, Oregon.
Oddly enough, I feel the warmth and sounds of a fireplace going – the heat and the crackling of the wood burning, the orange glow of embers and flames. Sitting near this image gives me that cozy warm feeling.
Seasonal Decor Horse Art
March in Arizona is always a very unpredictable. From day to day we don’t know when to expect warm sun or winter snow storms. I’m not quite ready for spring or summer. I prefer the cold weather, just not the dryness. As I think about putting on my winter sweater I hold on to the horses in snow photos that hang on the wall. March 20th may be the first day of spring but I think we still have a bit more time of bulky sweaters and cold weather wall art to enjoy.
Check back with me next month when the daffodils start to bloom and I get the springtime itch to sit in the warmth of the sun. Then the cold weather photos will come down and the warm spring and summer Horse Photos will adorn my walls.
