Cloud Photography

I was so happy when Amber emailed me a month or two ago to introduce herself. I LOVE her style and her blog is quickly becoming a favorite.



Look at Amber's last great project. She went outside and took photos of pretty clouds and had one of the images blown up for $30.



She framed the image in a large IKEA Ribba (no mat here, which is key to making it look like expensive modern art).



Go check out Amber's blog if you haven't already. I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do!

What a great idea. There is a small gallery near my home where an artist paints clouds in various types of weather from sunny days to stormy clouds at dusk. They painting are gorgeous and their price tags reflect that-$3,800 for my favorite one. This is a great alternative.

I really like the matte-less look. I've framed loads of travel photos, but typically use a matte. Will have to try something different next time!

I have been searching for images to put over some small windows in my dining room. I planned on buying pics or paintings. I saw this post and thought to myself, I have a camera and a printer, that's all I need! I went to the roof of my office building and got some great shots. Can't wait to see see them blown up. Thanks!

There is (or was, it's been awhile) a gallery in Woodstock, NY called "Clouds" and it featured large scale paintings of clouds. I believe the painter is no longer, but the shop is still a gift shop and has a few of the paintings left. The paintings had very low horizon lines, so a plowed field or a small building would be low on the canvas, with immense cloud formations towering above - very dramatic and suitable equally for a modern interior, a country-styled one or even a formal 18th century styled French one, just think of those illusionist ceilings in all those palaces...

I like that lampshade and the rug!

ALICE IN DESIGNLAND said...

I have been seeing pictures of this room floating around the blogosphere and really loved it....the clouds juxtaposed with the warm colors in the rug and the texture in the sheepskin...I wouldn't change a thing about it. Now to learn the story behind the clouds, I'm even more in love!
