A colourful Lisbon canvas print as the central decoration in your living room
Lisbon is a city located in the western part of the Iberian Peninsula on the mouth of the river Tagus, by the Atlantic Ocean. The oceanfront offers breath-taking views of the golden sun setting over the sandy beaches. The capital of Portugal is full of hidden treasures, including charming European alleyways, vintage cars and stylish restaurants, where you can enjoy some of the famous Portuguese food and wine. Lisbon is also known for its yellow trams. If you ever visit, make sure to take a ride! The most popular route is tramline 28, which stops next to all of the most important tourist attractions. Speaking of vintage trams, you can also find them in our decorative Lisbon canvas prints for the living room.
A trip to Lisbon without leaving home – is that possible?
The aforementioned yellow trams can provide a very interesting splash of colour in an otherwise subtle interior. The sunny colour scheme in the print works wonders in a room featuring lots of beige, white and earthy colours.
It’s a fantastic way to refresh your décor. However, if your space is more eclectic and experimental, we recommend a print depicting Portuguese nightlife. When the sun sets, Lisbon’s Bairro Alto comes to life. Every night, the district is filled with music, dance and parties! It’s the central point of the city, both for the locals and tourists. A Lisbon canvas print focused on the nightlife of the Portuguese capital will be a wonderful source of lively atmosphere and colour for your living room.
These designs take advantage of the mesmerising mix of lights from the countless vintage lampposts, clubs and cafés. Many people simply put the prints up but you can also lean them against a wall or furniture for extra style points. You may even go for a few matching prints and design your own Portuguese gallery wall!
Iberian cuisine on canvas: the scrumptious side of Lisbon!
Lisbon is also famous for its tasty and healthy food. During a walk along the charming alleyways of the city it’s impossible to resist the temptation of the many restaurants, cafés and bars. If you have a sweet tooth, don’t leave Lisbon before trying the popular Pasteis de Belem – the sweet egg tarts filled with custard. These baked sweets go well with the characteristic taste of aromatic Portuguese coffee. For dinner, we recommend the traditional bacalhau, the Portuguese word for cod, which in this part of the world is usually served dried and salted. And if even thinking about these tasty treats makes your mouth water, you can also use them in the form of Lisbon canvas prints and decorate your kitchen. We’re big fans of Iberian cuisine. Are you?
Lisbon canvas print in an Iberian-style flat
Some of the most characteristic features of the Iberian style of decoration include the abundance of light, warm colours as well as classic, often rustic furniture. In this case, we recommend a white colour scheme with hints of grey, beige or light blue. A Portuguese-style kitchen is usually dominated with natural materials, such as leather, wood or wicker.
You can also cover walls with decorative stone or go for a marble countertop. Plain walls can be decorated with flowery ornaments as well as mosaics, especially white or light blue ones inspired by azulejos – traditional decorative tiles with floral patterns
. Portuguese people love art and often use paintings to decorate their walls. A Lisbon canvas print which captures the atmosphere of romantic cafés or the tasty Portuguese cuisine will definitely make your kitchen look much more appealing.
To highlight the charm of the décor and tie the space together, use accessories in vivid colours, such as yellow, red or blue. You could, for instance, introduce these colours in textiles: tablecloths, curtains, kitchen towels and serviettes. Finally, complete the new look of the space with a few potted plants on the windowsill or the floor. Our gallery features the most beautiful and colourful images of Lisbon as seen by its inhabitants as well as the visitors. By choosing the southern decorative style, you guarantee that your interiors will be lively, full of character and very cosy.
