An apartment in an area with plenty of trees has numerous advantages: not only lower noise levels and better air quality, but also, according to some research... a higher level of friendliness among neighbors and a lower crime rate. So do trees have a calming and soothing effect? It would appear so! If you want to see if tree canvas prints have a similar effect, you're in the right place: we have an extensive range of beautiful, inspiring and simply very, very stylish designs with the motifs of trees and forest. We are confident that the various "woody" motifs we offer – be it a highly metaphorical and subtle line art image with a turquoise tree or a typical oil painting depicting trees – will blend wonderfully into the arrangement of many different interiors, both domestic and corporate. To prove this, we have prepared a few ideas to inspire you!
We could write an essay about why spending time on walking among the strong, rough yet at the same time soft and warm trunks of trees is good for you, but this is definitely not what this text is about (so you will just have to take our word for it)! Today we want to show you how to use tree canvas prints as an interior decoration in such a way as to achieve the best possible effect – sometimes not only decorative!
Do you know what the most beautiful thing about trees is? Of course, you do: it's the fact that they look different every season! A tree that is barely covered in bright green buds in the spring (provided we are talking about deciduous trees!) looks completely different from an autumnal tree with a stunning gold and purple crown. Thanks to these periodic changes you can choose designs with trees for any room, regardless of its color scheme. Just think:
In a minimalist interior full of neutral colors or a combination of black and white tree canvas prints in black and white, based on photos of a winter forest, will look very stylish and befitting.
In a space dominated by pastel colors – for example, in a child's room, in an atmospheric bedroom or a café decorated in shabby chic style – a picture of a budding tree will look marvelous.
If you like more expressive, vivid colors opt for autumnal forest landscapes – their wonderful warm colors will look sensational in interiors decorated in equally warm shades.
And what about green summer trees? They will look good anywhere!
The tradition of creating bonsai – miniature ornamental trees created in the course of many years of trimming and restraining the growth of certain varieties of trees – originated in China, although it is more commonly associated with Japan. It is one of the most widely known traditional art forms of these countries – therefore, if you want to create a Chinese or Japanese feel in an interior (be it a domestic living room or a restaurant serving Asian cuisine), a canvas print depicting a bonsai tree will be a great choice! Its calm lines and neutral colors will help you really feel Zen in your space. To enhance this effect, consider using not a single decoration, but a 3-piece image – preferably in a very prominent, central point of your space (for example, above the bed in the bedroom).
Not only because they are soothing and beautiful! There is one more reason, mentioned less often: the green color of the trees has almost magical properties helping to relax tired eyes. Research has shown that looking at nature’s greenery helps your eyes recover after a prolonged effort, such as working at the computer (the bane of modernity!) or reading. So if you don't live near a forest or your office's window overlooks an apartment building across the road, oil paintings depicting trees are the perfect choice for you! Provided, of course, your canvas print features green trees: let us inspire you, for example, with our palm tree canvas prints or birch tree canvas prints.
Nowadays, like cut trees, we often tend to be detached from our roots, living far from our parents and grandparents. People often feel nostalgic for the times when large families living together were the norm. If you want to show how attached you are to your family, you can do so by hanging a canvas print of your family tree in a prominent place in your home.
