Captivating renaissance interior decorFriday, 04 May 2012 02:15
The look and style of the Renaissance is proving to be inspiration for many home interior pieces this season.
The captivating designs and romantic imagery are a popular choice for people who want an elegant look inside their home.
The team at Shop On Your Doorstep has picked up on the Renaissance theme and has tracked down some beautiful and unusual items.
The finds include romantic and opulent prints, rugs and portraits ideal for modern homes.
One of the more eye-catching items is the Renaissance cowhide rug.
It's described as being from a very exotic breed of beast that lives in the mind of designers Young and Battaglia.
It features a background image created by artist Himitsuhana of a beautiful young lady.
This is overlaid with tufts of fur and hand cut out in a special rubber backed fabric.
It mixes art with functionality adding a surrealist element to any interior décor.
The 'Stone Angels' wallpaper is a clever way to get an ornate look without spending the laborious time creating it.
The wallpaper is inspired by stone architectural details seen during the renaissance.
The wallpaper features angels similar to sculptures seen in cathedrals, creating the effect of an exquisitely carved ornate wall.
It is printed on smooth paper and is suitable for both domestic and commercial use.
