It is a key year for Britain, the 2012 Olympics and the Queen’s Jubilee will bring out the best in British pride and start celebrations all over the world. The growing trend of ‘British’ prints is not only massive with clothes, but with housing decor too. From Alexander McQueen to Topshop, everyone is embracing the British style. Personalised canvas prints make this trend easy to subtly replicate throughout your home.
Popular designs are classic icons which depict ‘Britishness’, red double-decker buses, the Union Jack flag, The Queen and red phone boxes. Use your own images for a unique twist on the trend, walk around your local area to get a grasp of what stands out to be strongly British about it. Take pictures of anything and everything that resembles Britain, use images of places of sentiment to you to add real value to the prints.
When you’re satisfied with the amount and quality of images you have taken, upload them to your computer and save. Carefully select which image or images you would like to display around your home.
Choosing the correct canvas size and style is very important. Firstly pick the room or areas you will be hanging the canvas, make a note of the wall size and shape. Choose a canvas size that will fit the wall exactly how you would like it, if you want to have a few canvases next to each other then make sure you factor in the spaces needed between each print.
Choose a suitable canvas orientation. When picking a depth for your canvas you need to factor in its size, generally canvases bigger than 30 x 25 inches look better with a 2-inch depth. Finally choose a canvas colour that will suit the room, typically British images primarily include the colours of red, white and blue, if this is true of your images then leave the canvas in full colour as this will add character to the British theme. For a full on British design, add appropriately designed accessories.
