How to make your home feel like an aquarium
If you live on a yacht, an oceanfront home, or you are completely landlocked you may love the tropical underwater world of the ocean with its bright, inviting colors. If so, you may want to consider that as the theme for your decorating plans.
The ocean's bright blues, aqua marines, greens and deep purples can add a wonderful calming effect to your home decor. If you do a little research you can choose the fish and other sea life that you wish to include. Perhaps you like mermaids, turtles or dolphins. Parrot fish, angelfish, seahorses, blue tang, yellow tail, lion fish and many other colorful fish fill the coral reefs. If you are a deep sea fisherman, creatures such as marlin, mahi mahi, killer whales and sailfish might peek your interest.
Which rooms can be decorated like an aquarium?
The most obvious place someone usually thinks of to decorate with a water theme is the bathroom where you can picture fish swimming in the tub as you take a deep relaxing soak. That is a great place to choose, but can you imagine waking up in your bedroom to turtles, manatees or dolphins? Or, if you are a diver or a like to snorkel, your memories of your excursions can lift you away from your work for a few minutes at a time in your coral reef, themed office. As a chef, the bounties of the ocean provide delicious food for our families. What better place to feature fish, than in the kitchen? To make the most impact of all, consider your living or family room where an entire underwater scene can entertain your guests and give all of you lots to talk about.
Create a conversation piece for your living room or family room
You can wrap your room in multiple paneled paintings that create an underwater scene around you. These multiple paneled paintings are sometimes called diptychs or triptychs. Diptychs or triptychs are very interesting because they are usually single paintings that can stand by themselves or they can complete a scene with almost a panoramic view of the underwater world. In this way you can truly achieve the feeling of living underwater in your own aquarium.
What does your choice of marine life art say about you?
Your choice of marine life art suggests that you are aware that another world exists under the sea. A beautiful and amazing world that provides our planet with its primary source of food. As a citizen of the world, you can help to keep public aware of its wonder and when you invite people to your home the beauty of your coral reef paintings will keep the conversation going.
