Big + Beautiful

Even though gallery walls seem to be grabbing all the headlines lately, I've been noticing a lot large scale photographs showing up on the pages of my favorite design magazines.  I absolutely love Timothy Whealon's design that was featured in the October issue of Veranda with its pops of blue and green .  But it’s the photograph over the blue velvet bench that really got my attention.  The photograph of The Museum of Archeology in Venice is by the German artist Candid Höfer.  There is something so striking about its scale and clarity.  So as much as I love a gallery wall full of tiny artwork, this space has me feeling the need to move in a new direction, toward something on a larger scale.  This weekend mission must find reasonably priced, large architectural photograph devoid of people begins.  So far it's turning out to be harder than I expected.  I've combed through Etsy, 20x200 and Zatista but nothing really seems to compare to these large, clear, expensive beauties...
