A well-known proverb says the devil is in the detail… It’s hard to disagree with it if you consider how crucial of a role details play when it comes to the perception of art and architecture. Very often it is small characteristic decorations and the finishing touches that make it easy to discern the origins and the cultural heritage of a particular item (e.g. folk patterns of Polish highlanders, which vary depending on the region or antique Greek columns: Ionic and Corinthian). This extraordinary phenomenon has inspired Myloview designers to create unique décor. That’s how our canvas prints with ornaments came to be. This general term encompasses all kinds of interesting, unique and inspiring designs. We’ve prepared for you a couple of tips that can inspire you to arrange these canvas prints in an eye-catching way. Folk, oriental or geometric ornaments – the possibilities are endless!
Although the roses and wildflowers that our grandmothers embroidered on table cloths, handkerchiefs and skirts were considered old-fashioned for some time, it seems that nowadays this aesthetic is slowly making a comeback. Even today, floral patterns inspired by folk tradition can be seen on jeans, hoodies, handbags or wallets… That’s precisely what inspired us to put them on canvas prints as well. Ornament canvas prints with a subtle rose (or a couple of roses), vivid red poppies or a few cornflowers prove that these designs look as incredible on a wall as they do on clothes! These types of patterns look especially lovely if you combine them with other decorations similar in theme. Whether they’re based on floral designs or folk aesthetics, canvas prints with ornaments will be a gorgeous addition to any subtle, natural bedroom, classic office with wooden furniture or spacious, traditional living room.
Many Western cultures boast intricate, colourful patterns but these characteristics are often taken to another level in the Far East. An excellent example of gorgeous patterns from Asian cultures are the Buddhist mandalas. These elaborate, multicoloured designs (created from harmonious combinations of circles and squares) have traditionally been made out of colourful sand and erased soon after, to symbolise the cycle of life. The metaphysical beauty of mandalas and other designs originating in Asian cultures has also been appreciated in the West. For anybody who wishes to capture a fraction of the Far East atmosphere in their home, we recommend ornament canvas prints. Inspired by wall decorations of Hindu temples and Buddhist monasteries, these prints will make your space feel much more original. Our vast collection includes many designs that can be combined into thematic compositions (e.g. in a Japanese-style room) but they look just as impressive on their own. The unique shapes and colours of Far Eastern designs will instantly liven up the interior. Many people also vouch for the positive effect of these decorations on their energy levels and general well-being.
After a short trip to the East, we’re coming back to Europe. But it’s Europe from two and a half millennia ago! The painters and sculptors of ancient Greece have been incredibly influential in the development of art and architecture throughout centuries. Even to this day, the Greek motifs remain recognisable and appreciated. Ornaments shaped like palm fronds (anthemions) or geometric lines bent at right angles (meanders) are the most famous Greek designs that adorn many buildings to this day. We decided to incorporate them into our beautiful canvas prints. Since these patterns were traditionally carved in marble or other light stones, once transformed into prints they work wonders as decorations for pastel interiors. You may, for instance, use them as an interesting Mediterranean accents to beautify your kitchen.
It is difficult to find matching decorations for modern interiors, which often emphasise aesthetic restraint or even raw materials. This is especially true if you’re a fan of the minimalist style. Canvas prints with ornaments are a perfect solution to this problem. Thanks to geometric, repeated motifs, recognisable patterns or cubist designs, you can rest assured that the final effect will be both consistent with your style and wonderfully original.
