Home Living : March 2nd 2010
10 HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, March 2, 2010 Add some life to bare walls » ADVERTISING FEATURE We all love a room with a view. For those without, or with lots of blank internal wall space, a treescape from signarture's latest collection is the next best thing for some natural inspiration. The treescape collection is launched at a time when the trend for trees, bark and natural timber finishes in interior design is running hot, and our desire for all things organic is gaining in strength. Inspired by the views from Burrawang to Braidwood, Blackheath to Bryon Bay, whether you crave views of the country or the coast, an intimate vista or a far horizon, these contemporary treescapes will satisfy your eco-sensibilities. Treescape adds to the swag of original collections designed and produced locally to order by signarture. Your choice of artwork will be reproduced in the colour, shape and size you need, ensuring it is perfectly customised to suit your style and space. Choose a canvas art print for contemporary style, or stunning, modern perspex art, a very cool new medium pioneered by signarture in Australia, which allows light to interact with the artwork to stunning effect, quite unlike anything else you've seen. Clearly influenced by fashion trends, signarture is the perfect choice for the fashion and design savvy. Given the chromatic explosion of colour, with this collection simplicity of form was essential. ''Geometry is key to this look. . . colour blocking was a key look seen on the catwalks of Europe,'' creative director Sarah Leslie said. With strong, eye-popping colour making a defiant stand against the prevailing economic gloom from fashion and furnishings to furniture, this latest way of adding life to your walls is hot, and you have all the controls. It's just like shopping for fashion, but for your walls. Get a clear idea of how the designs look as a canvas print or as a perspex artwork by visiting the innovative online gallery at signarture.com.au .................................................. Magic garden The one item you want to add to your ''tool belt'' for all those repair and remodelling projects this autumn has to be Photoshop. Not just photographer's tool, Photoshop can help you tackle home repair or remodelling. Photoshop guru and author of the new book Photoshop-Just the Skinny, Stephen Farnow says Photoshop can do it all by helping you visualise changes -- from major remodelling to landscaping to hanging a set of photographs. If you want to redo the garden, take a digital camera to a nursery, snap the plants that might work then come home and digitally plant them in an image of your garden. Then you can move them around or change the colour of the wall behind them to see what works best.
