From Plain to Peaceful

November 01, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

When the remodeling on Barbara's new reading room was completed, she was thrilled.  The ceilings were painted a beautiful shade of white to contrast with the natural dark beams, new dark hardwood floors replaced outdated green carpet, and the paneled walls were drywalled, then painted a creamy shade of neutral gray.  She kept the antique sofa console she'd inherited from her mother, refinished her worn out coffee table with a darker stain, added a neutral white rug, two cream colored sofas, some modern metal accessories, and finished it off with floor to ceiling drapes.  The old sliding patio door was replaced with a new set of french doors to bring nature right indoors.  All in all, it's now a perfect reading retreat for this nature inspired book lover.

 

Except for one thing:  the plain gray wall above the old fireplace.  

 

A television on the wall is out of the question.  Barbara wanted this to be a peaceful retreat for her to spend time away from the noise and hustle bustle of the world.  And while she loves the new earth tone, natural colors in the room, she felt as if she wanted a bit of color.  But she still wanted to keep it nature inspired.  She wanted to bring the outdoors in, so on those days when she can't sit with the french doors wide open, she'd still feel as if she were in the middle of nature.

 

Enter:  Autumn Forest 3, a beautiful autumn path to take Barbara exactly where she wants to go -- straight into nature.

 

 

The canvas print in size 30"x40" is the perfect accessory for this plain gray wall.  The color of the path blends perfectly with Barbara's new sofas, and the color in the trees offers a direct continuation from the accessory branches housed in the modern gray vase on the antique console.  And Autumn Forest 3 has just the right amount of added color Barbara was looking for in her new reading room.  Not too much -- not too little.  Now Barbara can enjoy a journey into nature no matter what the weather is doing outdoors.  Any time of day or night, she can mentally take a walk in the woods and find a spot to enjoy her favorite book.

 

Problem solved.

I am a photographic artist living in Tennessee, and I love to spend my days in nature capturing life's most serene and peaceful moments, whether it be in landscapes, watching birds and wildlife, or simply enjoying the beauty of a simple flower. I hope you enjoy my work, and that it will bring a moment of serenity into your day. --Jai Johnson
