There is a quote out there that can resonate with us for any mood we are feeling. A beautiful custom canvas with quotes is the perfect way to bring that quote to life. quotecanvas

Creating the Ambiance

When you walk into a room, the first thing we notice is the ambiance. When we have a space of our own that we want to decorate whether it’s a bedroom, room in a house, or office space our goal is to design it to whatever ambiance, vibe, style or look we are trying to achieve. A Canvas with quotes is a great way to send a message and let who ever is in the room feel that message when they read it. The best thing about a quote canvas is that it’s simple enough to go anywhere in your home! With the ability to customize your background and text, you can go with a classic look that can go in any room or pick out the colors when you are designing to match your room.

Endless Possibilities

A canvas with quotes can be funny, happy, sad, sentimental inspirational or anything you want! A canvas with quotes is also a great way to create a memorabilia piece. You can quote all the hilarious things your family said on a family vacation, a crazy girls/guy trip, a sports season, or to remember a special person. A great use for a canvas with quotes out of the home for example are in schools or offices. Remember those posters from the 90’s your teachers had? Now, you can recreate the same ones but on a beautiful custom canvas that matches the colors of your room, won’t rip or wear and makes people want to actually read them! A custom canvas with quotes is the perfect way to add some fun to any room.

Decorating for the Holidays with Custom Canvases

Everyone loves the holidays  because they are filled with family, joy, generosity, good company and good food. Whatever your traditions are, we all have those special memories and traditions that have made our holidays magical throughout the years. As the years go by and family dynamics change and grow, we look back on past holiday’s which remain some of our fondest lifelong memories. This is why custom canvases are great for personalizing your household’s holiday decorations! With October kicking off the start of the holiday season with Halloween, we can tell you how you can incorporate a custom canvas into your holiday decor! Who really wants to walk into their home to a six foot tall witch that will let out a cackle at every passerby? Blowing up photos from past Halloweens, photos of pumpkins you hand carved, or a creepy haunted house you went to as a tradition adds a personal touch to your decorations without turning your home into what looks like a holiday themed antique shop or garage sale. hand turkeyDuring Thanksgiving time, remember those finger paint “hand turkeys” and all the fun thanksgiving art your little sister made? Now you can preserve these precious pieces on custom canvases simply by taking a photo of the art or scanning it, then uploading the image onto a canvas!

Much like how Mom still hangs up the Christmas ornaments you made in grade school (even if they are falling apart), we think that the photos you took at the mall while sitting on Santa’s lap when you were five can add a really fun personal touch to your home,  instead of sitting in a photo album all year long.  A custom canvas is also a great way to decorate your home for the holidays without completely ruining the decor or theme of your household.

Custom canvases are an amazing way to bring family memories, old and new to life and remind everyone of  these good times throughout the season!
