Five Ways You Can Introduce Canvas Prints into a Traditional Interior
For the traditionalist or for those who prefer to stick to a more classic interior, incorporating canvas prints into a room can be a daunting task. However, when introduced correctly, they can add a gorgeous update to your space that gives a subtle twist to a classic style. And, not only are canvas prints easier to hang, but they can be a lot less invasive on your wall due to their lighter weight. An unframed canvas will also add a depth of texture and a more streamlined look that a framed picture simply can’t achieve. Whether your home’s interior style is period, classic, country or rustic, a canvas print can, in fact, look wonderful in any space. Read on and find out five easy ways that you can introduce a canvas print into your traditional interior.
1. Celebrate traditional designs on a canvas print
A traditional interior doesn't need to be restricted by its time period, however, it's important that you are able to create a cohesive look that doesn’t overstep its boundaries. For this reason, using traditional images and illustrations on a canvas print is a brilliant way to introduce a new, more modern element into your home, without appearing out of place. For example, if you have an eclectic Victorian or Edwardian interior, consider a canvas print of botanist or bird illustrations that you would typically associate with the era. Or, you could alternately look for canvas prints that feature patterns or artworks that reflect or are heavily inspired by the period that your home is styled in.
2. Replicate furniture or furnishing details through your canvas print choice
The focus on specific design details can look wonderful when replicated through pattern or an illustration on a canvas print. As well as creating a sense of fluidity and connectedness by subtly mirroring your surroundings, it will also create a new and quirky look that isn't typically associated, yet works, with traditional decor and furniture. When searching for your inspiration, don't be afraid to look to the more obscure places of your room. As a general rule of thumb, if it's a detail that is visible in the same room or from the door frame, no matter how small it is, it will create a balanced look that has a professional, considered feel. You never know; a particularly ornate cornice or cabinet door may serve as the perfect inspiration for your new canvas print.
3. Create a twist on the traditional
A canvas print is a considerable step away from typically traditional wall decor, however, to take it even further, perhaps look into hanging a canvas print that contrasts your space just enough to add a pinch of serious style statement and interior consideration. By opting for artwork that is deliberately different to your current decor look, you will generate a new depth of interest and a considered yet fun approach to your interior that may not have been noticeable before. However, to achieve the best from a contrasting canvas print, ensure that the design that you pick is not too obscure to the rest of your room. The key to this interior trick is to choose a canvas that will appear effortless when hung, even though a lot of thought has gone into your choice. To do this, look towards replicating colour, shape or drawing styles that are apparent in your interior. This will ensure that your choice of canvas print makes sense for the rest of your room decor and that it is not completely random to your space.
4. Use canvas prints as an alternative to gallery walls
Gallery walls are commonly seen in period and traditional interiors, giving people a stylish and detailed approach to expressing their tastes and personality. To freshen up this traditional look, replace elements of a gallery wall with a canvas print instead of a framed picture, as an alternative to a classic look. This will result in a gallery wall that appears sleeker and lighter than the norm, one that is a little more current and fresh than expected. Be sure to be considerate of your proportions when selecting canvas prints that will be used on your gallery wall. A good way to do this is to match standard portrait and landscape sizes with your canvas prints, or any other artworks that you currently have hanging on your gallery wall.
5. Stick to colours that are in line with your interior
When selecting the right canvas prints to include in your room, it's essential that you are able to create a balanced, considered look in your room by reflecting your furniture and room accent colours throughout your prints. To put it simply, if your interior style is country, perhaps neon pink is a colour that is best to be avoided. When choosing your canvas print, look towards colours that are similar to key pieces of furniture or accessories in your space. For example, a favourite throw or your curtains. However, don't feel that you need to be limited to overly matchy looks. You can also opt for more obscure colour references such as those found from vases, flowers and even particularly beautiful book covers from your bookshelf. Powered by TCPDF (www.tcpdf.org)
Add creativity and flair to your photos with these tips
Everyone knows that incredible creativity and stunning visual artistry can be achieved with photo editing software, but what types of effect can you create within your camera itself?
Try these techniques next time you are out and about and have a little fun with some in-camera hacking!
Shift your camera
Yes, we know that you've had the importance of a still camera drilled into your every move and yes, this is essential for sharp results. However, when you want motion and drama in your shots you can move the camera! Try panning (a technique that sports photographers love) or be brave and throw your camera upwards after setting the self-timer and a long shutter speed...it's extreme however and you may want to try the slightly safer technique of whirling and taking a shot mid rotation.
Deliberate poor focus
Go the whole hog and take shots that are deliberately out of focus. This works really well with a plain background so that you have nothing at all of focus in the final shot. Alternatively, focus on a secondary object so that the primary object is blurred. The results will be very interesting.
Trial different levels of exposure to burn out different elements of your composition.
Shoot from the floor
Put your camera down at floor level and use a very low angle to photograph your subject. The random perspective really shakes things up. And gives you dirty knees. If getting down onto the ground doesn't appeal, try hovering your camera as low as you can reach!
Alternatively, get high up. Hold your camera above your head and shoot downwards. Pop it onto a tripod for an even more dramatic effect, and try using a fish eye for some fun. Some really bold photographers even attach their cameras onto kites for vastly dramatic shots, but this might be one step too far for your insurance company.
The zoom adjust
Alternatively, you can keep your camera still - and at less risk of damage - but instead adjust your zoom lens in or out to create movement as you take the shot. Zooming gives a lovely 3D finish which is dynamic and engaging. Try adding in a slow sync flash for some very special effects.
Play with grain
Grainy shots are great for creating mood and nostalgia. You'll need to override the ISO settings on your camera and pop them up as high as they'll go to introduce maximum grain or noise. Try combining this with a great black and white shot, and then blow it up as large as you can.
Experiment with infrared
This technique alone can create stunning art with really unusual features - darkened eyes, white trees and water, black skies and so forth. Some cameras already have the ability to capture infra-red light, and for these you'll need an IR filter so you can start experimenting. Use a long shutter speed, try a tripod and go for faster ISO settings. As an extra tip, these photos come out best when taken at the start or the end of the day.
