Making Waves

If you’ve been keeping up with our blogs, and I know you have because you’re awesome, you know that our Oceanus Series is one of our most popular collections! Everyone loves the beach, and anything beach related. The seaside is one of the most relaxing places one can imagine. The smell of salt, the warm breeze, and my favorite, the waves crashing lightly against the coast. You can hear it right? I know i can!

Waves are beautiful, terrifying and majestic. They can bring a sense of serenity or utter chaos. Sometimes my goal is to become a human embodiment of a wave….but that’s just me. While I spend my time figuring out how to be the wave I deserve to be, let’s talk about you and your future wave themed home. All waves are beautiful, but I am absolutely obsessed with traditional Japanese nami wave art. We all know the ones.

A lot of interior designers, fashion designers and artists are inspired by the beautiful works of traditional Japanese artists and for good reason! The serene-ness of the soft color palettes in contrast of harsh lines are one thing that makes these paintings so memorable. I’m seeing a lot of fashion inspired by Nami waves. Whether abstract or literal.

Alena Akhmadullina Russia Spring 2016 takes a literal adaptation of Nami waves, transforming models into walking tsunami paintings. So beautifully done.

While these are gorgeous, fashion isn’t the only avenue that implements waves. Home decor can easily take a seaside twist. Maybe you aren’t ambitious enough to go all out like some of these creative sea lovers.
