The easiest way to solve the problem of the connection of the canvas with the interior, you can choose the right wallpaper pattern.
For example, you have an oval picture of medium size. For wall decoration in this case, it is better to choose wallpaper with a pattern, the scale of which is close to the size of a work of art. It is not often possible to accurately fit the size of the picture into the wallpaper ornament. Most often, the picture is usually on the right and on the left, the frame of the picture slightly “cuts off” a fragment of the wallpaper ornament. But the top and bottom ornamental details on the contour of the frame usually fit well. The smooth curve of the picture frame and wallpaper pattern will perfectly echo the curved silhouette of the bed. In general, there is a feeling of harmony between the outline of the painting and the interior.
Another option: you have a rectangular picture with vertically elongated proportions. Wallpaper in this case, it is better to choose having clearly defined vertical stripes, one of which should be equal in width to the canvas. If suddenly it is wider or narrower, then you can cut a strip of wallpaper, adjust it by shifting, or wedge. You do not need to adjust the wallpaper vertically. You can complement the composition with a fairly wide flower bed installed directly under the canvas.
Option three: for a small round picture, if you have it, it is better to choose wallpaper with such a large pattern that the artistic canvas can be accurately inscribed into the pattern ornament. The wallpaper pattern will actually become the second frame of the canvas.
A work of easel or applied art that has become the subject of a residential interior also requires fitting to the interior. Not as clear as the paintings, but still. Such works are not indifferent to the room in which they are located, especially if high-quality windows are installed there. Zhostovsky trays are the best place in the kitchen. The fact is that both they and Gorodetsky boards have not lost their utilitarian function to this day. It is necessary to take into account the genre of the picture, determining where to place it. A still life or landscape can fit into any room, but an emotionally intense canvas like a painting by K. Petrov-Vodkin’s “Death of the Commissar” is unlikely to please the owners, being placed above the marital bed. He doesn’t belong in the nursery either. In general. Choosing a picture – think.
There is one genre of painting that has practically no restrictions on the location. It’s a portrait. Apparently it is no coincidence that in the old days there was a tradition to arrange a portrait gallery of ancestors in their home. With the advent of photographs, this custom, although in a slightly modified form, began to revive – an arbitrary selection of family photos, united under a common frame under glass, began to be hung on the wall. Do you want to be more original than your contemporaries? Order a portrait from a painter. The renaissance of a family portrait in an apartment or house is one of the psychological moments of solving the issue of the connection of generations, the connection of times.
In general, the connection of the residential interior with the past of its owner is multifaceted. It manifests itself in different ways, but you should not ignore it. Loss of roots is always a tragedy. But do not get too carried away. It is better to choose the optimal, harmonious intermediate option.
