40 Majestic Examples of Abstract Architecture Photography

Abstract architecture photography is different from regular architecture photography. It offers a new perspective. It allows the viewer’s imagination run wild. You no longer see the full picture. Instead, you see a small piece of a much bigger puzzle. I guess you can sort of call this a tease. The artist takes a photo and lets you decide for yourself what you see and feel. This is the exact reason why I love abstract architecture photography. You have no surrounding context to help you formulate an educated thought about the photo at hand. Instead you see what looks like an abstract painting made out of stone, metal, steel, and concrete. The lines, shapes, and angles play together to create a seductive visual experience. It’s beautiful! Below you will find forty examples of abstract architecture photography. Even is you don’t have any interest in this niche, I still think the following photos will inspire you. Enjoy!

25 Exceptional Vase Designs

Industrial, creative, design, ideas, Inspiration, interior, vase

Fri, 17 Oct 2014 05:16:17 +0000

There was a time when a vase served only two functions: 1) the display of flowers or 2) as a family heirloom to be kept in a crystal cabinet. Those days are over. Now, a creatively designed vase can be so much more. It can be the centerpiece of a room, part of an overall design scheme, a gift to a loved one or the finishing touch on an artful display. The brilliant thing about creative vase designs is that the possibilities are limitless. You can tailor the style to suit your particular tastes and personality. How would someone describe you? Are you a hippy earth child at heart? Think smooth recycled timber curved by the waves. Are you a modern woman with everything under control? Envision symmetrical angles of glass and steel. What about the fun and bubbly 20 something majoring in fashion? Bright, bold blocks of color, with a quirky design twist. When furnishing a room, look for opportunities to showcase an exceptional vase. For example, is there a feature wall that is a solid block of color? A vase in a complimenting contrast color would create a striking visual effect. A breathtaking new design feature that is fast gaining popularity is the installation of display cabinets with small lights located in the base of them. A gorgeous vase placed in the cabinet and lit up from beneath creates a masterpiece within your home. Below you will find unique, special, and memorable vases crafted by talented designers from around the globe. Enjoy!
