Using Cherubs to Supplement a Tuscan Décor Theme
Posted by kaviiks on October 13, 2008
Cherubs and puttis have inspired much of the decorative designs for many of the European styles from the richly ornamented details from the Baroque period to the playful soothing styles of the Rococo era and has been a hallmark feature in much of the Victorian and Tuscan decorating styles. The Tuscan décor which is an Italian inspired decorative perspective influenced through the use of earthly and naturalistic hues and enhanced through the use of natural materials such as plaster, terracotta and ceramic tiles, use cherubs or puttis as decorative motifs for wall décor tilings and reliefs. When selecting cherub wall plaques and reliefs, use colors or finishes which are directed towards more natural and gentle shades like yellow, green, light orange, distressed white to grey finishes or green. Cherubs are also dominant in the garden where they are enchanting additions for a lifestyle that is directed towards a relaxing and rural setting. Hence, the use of season cherubs defining the winter,
spring, summer and fall seasons may be a welcome providing emphasis on a natural appeal to the elements of weather. Cherub and putti designs are also very prominent on Tuscan inspired pots and urns where the look of the celestial adds a sense of tradition and elegance.
