Create A Coastal Atmosphere In Your Home
There's nothing more synonymous to the sound of the coast than seagulls squawking.
It's not very practical ( and probably illegal! ) to keep seagulls & seabirds in your home.
So the next best thing to invoke the feeling of those seaside sounds is to display wall art prints of our coastal feathered friends.
Invoke the atmosphere of the seaside with these coastal wall art prints.
Here are 3 different prints of coastal seabirds that you can incorporate into your wall décor to produce a touch of seaside charm in any space.
Less Can Be More
You don't need a large wall art print to have an affect on a space.
Even a small print can add some coastal charm & create the finishing touch in any area of the home.
If you live in an apartment or smaller unit, you may not have a full size dining room or living area & enough wall space to display larger artworks.
A well chosen print can define the space & create coherence with the other elements & accessories.
Many coastal style prints lend themselves to modern interior design.
Canvas wraps are popular & look wonderful unframed, as well as in a contemporary styled floater frame.
But metal or acrylic prints really create a fabulous sense of colour, depth & vibrancy.
Coastal prints of sunsets & sunrises, as well as reflections, as in the print above, are ideal for this more modern print material.
"Stretching Your Wings" is available as an instant download or with various print & framing options.
Coastal Art For Modern Wall Coverings
A coastal print can also be incorporated into décor with modern furnishings, as well as being displayed over modern wall coverings.
The tones in the print above tie in well with the general colours of the room & the black frame separates the art from the geometric patterns of the wallpaper.

Fish & Chips & Coastal Art

Once again, the choice of frame helps the print to match the décor it's displayed in, which in this case is a clean & fresh interior.
The wood frame is the better choice for a contemporary styled café, as it accents the timber furniture.
