Wall art from the land of dreams

Your bedroom walls have never looked this good before

“Sleep is the best meditation”, the Dalai Lama says. We trust him on that, given that he’s a bit of an expert in the realm of meditation. Yet, one thing is true for both sleep and meditation: it’s not always easy to do a good job there. So we’re here to help – let’s create an environment that inspires you to sleep the sleep of the just, let’s get some art on your bedroom walls.

These are some of the ideas our curators had for your chambers. Because: dream big!

Emerald city: green wall art for your home

Green art prints make your walls breathe hope, life and freshness

Finally – summer is here and long-awaited sunrays let the green of the plants and trees in front of our windows shine bright. The perfect opportunity to integrate a little more green into our everyday life as well!

Why? Because green is a very special color: it signifies life, freshness and fertility, relaxation, confidence and new beginnings – and many of us certainly associate it with breaks from the fast rhythm of our lives. A Sunday stroll in the forest, a weekend camping out at the lake, a week without telephone or internet in a remote mountain hut: nature is good for our mental health. Green means deceleration, digital detox and breathing. So the verdict is obvious: we need more green in our lives.

In addition to the most obvious solution (a mini-jungle for your window sill, balcony or living room), the color green also looks fabulous on your walls. We’ll show you how it’s done.

The DOs and DON’Ts of Travel Photography

5 Handy Tips By Eva Stadler

Every destination has its own culture, peculiarities and sights. How do you do your pre-trip location scouting?

When I have finally decided where to go (the bucket list is very, very long), I do a lot of online research. The first things I look for are the sights and vistas, important buildings or monuments, signature landscapes, clothes, people, markets, animals, even colors etc. What pictures are there already? What technique or angle could add a twist to a well-known motif? Since time is always limited, I’m planning every trip carefully. I try to concentrate on a few places I definitely want to see and at what time of day, and leave time and space for unexpected situations.

I try to figure out what it will be like at my chosen destination as a foreign woman with a huge camera and backpack and how people will react. Most travel guides offer advice on how, when, or where to take pictures without hurting feelings. I take these very seriously. It might not even have consequences, but it makes me feel bad if someone rolls their eyes at me or thinks I’m being rude.
