Living the Sea Life

By Natalie Hayllar, eat read love 

There is something about looking at the sea that has an instant calming effect don’t you think? Being married to a surfer, and living near Cronulla beach, our home has always been filled with inspiration from the sea. We have driftwood and old boating ropes in our garden, and a collection of old and new photographs from family surfing holidays or time spent by the beach on our walls. Whether you surf, live near the sea, or just dream of living near the sea, then you will love the latest collection by the sea life. 

12 | 12 is a limited edition photographic print range by photographer Matt Johnson of the sea life. On the 12th of each month, for 12 months, the sea life will release a new print for the collection to purchase. “Matt had a vision to make the prints available to the art enthusiast who is drawn to the sea, but does not necessarily surf”. The prints are beautiful and more conceptually based to suit any home, office, or store, and the limited edition of 12 are printed on high quality photo rag paper, which has a beautiful textured matte aesthetic, and will last a lifetime.

They are all individually signed & numbered by Matt himself. (You might recognise the hallway in the first shot too – the lookbook for the new collection was shot in my home. It is such a nice idea to have the prints just resting against the wall rather than hanging don’t you think..?) Matt and his lovely stylist wife Madeline most certainly have the knack of creating the beautiful from the simple and bringing elements of the sea life to any space.
