When decorating a home many people think of furniture, lighting and even trinkets and other small decorative accents to complete the look of a room. But one thing they often overlook, which can set the scene like nothing else, is landscape art tapestries.
Landscape tapestries are amazing works of art. Not only are they beautiful scenes that will be stunning on your wall, but also as you get closer to them you will truly appreciate the mastery that goes into weaving each piece of thread to create an overall design.
Unlike a painting or other piece of typical wall art, landscape art tapestries will capture the attention of your guests the moment they walk into the room. The depth woven into these pieces will draw them into the scene and the presence that comes from the artistic piece.
There are three types of tapestries that suit this style of home decor - verdures, country scapes and castle views.
The word verdure literally means ‘greenery', which should tell you a little bit about what these tapestries will portray. The basis of these artistic works is plants and their shapes and forms. Often in verdures you will be able to ‘peek’ thought the plants and see a scene beyond them. You may be able to watch life in a country village or peek in on birds merrily building their nests. Many of these tapestries take the greenery to a new level, not only peeking through the greenery to a scene beyond, but also with an additional border inspired by other plant shapes.
This style of tapestry is rather self-explanatory as well. Looking at the tapestry you will be taken from your modern day home to an old country location. You may be able to watch the workings of a field in centuries past or a couple courting along a river's edge with the small country village nearby. These tapestries almost seem to be a view into another world and seem to open up your home as well.
If you really want to take a trip back in time, there is no better way to go than with castle view tapestries. These tapestries will bring medieval living to life in your home through a stunning view of a castle that was operational at the time. Whether you are a fan of medieval life and want to create a completely medieval room or you just want your own window to centuries past, castle view tapestries are a perfect way to accomplish that goal.
So there you have it.
As you contemplate or begin a home decor project, you should not overlook one of the pieces that can completely set the scene in your home, landscape art tapestries. Whether it's to give you a textured view to the outdoors or to give you a window of the past, these masterful woven expressions of art can be the scene setter that you can use to create the decor for the rest of this space.
