Water art is not just a hugely popular addition to the home but it offers deep symbolic value as well. Water is a great cleanser. It helps us heal and purify both literally and figuratively. Water is also an element that makes us feel at one with the environment, in the same way plants help us feel at one with nature.
That’s why water art is a wonderful way to create a sense of harmony. In fact, in Feng Shui, water can be used to restore balance in certain areas of the home.
More than seventy one per cent of the Earth’s surface is water covered. No wonder it’s one of our favourite things as humans. Make a splash with art and photography prints borne from the deep blue, the beach and the surf or go with the flow using water reflections and serene scenes. It’s even been shown that water can genuinely give our minds a rest.
Let’s dive right in.
Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress, Margaret Atwood.
Into the blue of water art
Take the plunge with art prints that are all about the blue. Blue is a colour that’s associated with freedom, imagination and inspiration and perfects your beach house art. Studies have even shown that the colour blue makes us much more calmer. Who doesn’t need that in their life, home or beach home?
This article from the New York Times even purports that most people’s favourite colour is blue!
