Sure, people take the weekend off and head for the Adirondacks or go skiing on the pristine white slopes of Whiteface or Gore Mountain. But it's far easier to bring all the natural beauty and freshness of the outdoors in Upstate New York into the home. Check out a professional NY travel photographer and pick the best shots to use for decorating homes.
A wall-to-wall decal of a sunrise over a lake in the mountains is a refreshing sight to wake up to. It's a reminder of that wonderful time on that ever-so-brief outdoor expedition that seems to fade away with each passing day. That said, travel-themed decor is not just about art prints in frames or glued as wall decals.
The options are limited only by imagination. For example, these professional pictures can be used to order custom printed home decor items. Everything from pillowcases to shower curtains may be printed with carefully chosen photography.
It doesn't just have to be about wall art or cloth prints either. It's possible to use beautiful pictures on plates, coasters and even as car decals. It would be very appropriate to have a family attacking food on plates that show black bears foraging for food in the mountains and lakes Upstate.
People even make holiday cards and gifts personalized to appeal to the friend or family member who is getting it. Smartphones rock, but there could hardly be a better gift than a serene scene of natural beauty in a friend's own town. It's a thoughtful gift that tells people how well the sender knows them and has taken the trouble to show it.
The point of all this is to keep all those NY travel memories alive and up-front all the time. Everyone should be looking at things they like as often as they can. It's pleasing and uplifting, and the therapeutic value of good photography is a proven science.
