The pictures that we just got in are taken by Brooklyn, New York based polaroid photographer named Matt Schwartz. Matt showed up in the store one day and asked if we’d be interested in some of his art. We love meeting new artists and checking out their work so of course we were excited to see what he had to show us. Laurie and Jaymi were hooked on his dream-like, coastal photographs the minute they saw them. They knew that these photos were right up Tuvalu’s alley and we had to share them with you guys. Matt has been traveling around the world for last 7 years taking pictures of what he’s seen and experienced. He’s traveled to places like Costa Rica, Ecuador, Peru, Dominican Republic, and Portugal. He’s also been all over the US experiencing our beautiful country and taking pictures along the way. He told us that he’s been traveling up and down the California coast taking pictures and making new friends as well as meeting new artists. His prints aren’t like most normal prints, they are taken with a polaroid camera and then transferred over to a canvas to the size wanted by him or his customer. This allows for his unique style to come through and creates one of a kind pictures. Matt Schwartz’s portfolio boasts more than just the beach and surfing photographs that we love. He’s got a few categories that we’re sure you’ll fall in love with too!

Tuesday’s Tip From The Pros
Today’s tip is a quick one about a different way to present framed pictures and art. We were looking through older magazines for inspiration because over time your tastes change. Things you weren’t into or didn’t even come close to interesting now have become just the opposite. We highly recommend you look through old design books and magazines. They are great because you can add your new ideas and styles into old ones. We found this image in an older edition of Coastal Living and fell in love with it. We love the creative and different way they set their photos up around the space instead of hanging them. It allows them to show more pieces and gives that relaxed look that every beach inspired space should have. Be different and be creative! Try new things!
