Taranaki Cliffs canvas print by Diana Adams has the spot-light in the series Art Meets Pillows.
On walks, the painter finds her artistic inspiration. Once an inspiration takes roots, she then beautifully reduces her subject to its essence with clear lines like in the Taranaki Cliffs remain. With a three-dimensional feel to the painting, the observer feels pulled into a landscape with brilliant colors.
An overcast sky that opens-up and letting a hint of the sun through and envelopes the eroding ilands off the Taranaki Cliffs. Dark turquoise tinted surf is breaking white-crowned in steady ripples on the shore. In the meantime, the turquoise sea contrasts the greyish black sand beach and the volcanic-layered cliffs.
The top of the cliffs appears capped with the dark green of coastal shrubs. It is a captivating canvas print of one of New Zealand’s contemporary artists.
Art Meets Pillows, Wavy Stripes Pattern Design
Art Meet Pillows relates to the waves and stripes that are defined in the artwork. Wavy-stripes is a monochrome repeat pattern on the grey and green throw pillows.
The pattern reminds, in its horizontal direction, of layered stone, which intensifies through varying shades. Meanwhile, a diagonal direction on a green pillow reminds one of rolling waves.
Mangaweka art print by Robin White has the focus in Art Meets Pillows.
The painting, Mangaweka, is from 1973 and shows a teal-colored truck parking in front of a wooden building with yellow panels between green frames. Fringing the road, the building’s pedestrian cover separates the artwork into two halves. The ground floor is strictly oriented towards the street, while green hills and clear blue sky envelop the second level.
Born in 1946, Dame Robin White studied Fine Art in Auckland and is one of New Zealand’s most important printmakers.
Art Meet Pillows picked up on the rural atmosphere and on the dominant yellow and green color. With this, a wooden framed armchair shows a green and yellow pillow decor. Apart from the coloration the pillows too pick up on the wooden plank texture in their stripes and checker pattern.
Diane Adams is the painter of Beyond The Cascade art print. Adams is a well known contemporary New Zealand artist.
Hues in mud-brown, moss-green, and grey-blue dominate the print. Here, a landscape in the Southern Alps unfolds. Cabbage trees break up the front of the mountainous scene. And the cascade follows a meandering stream that leads the viewer towards the snow-capped Southern Alps at the horizon. The overcast sky takes the chance that the sun can light up the landscape’s dull coloration.
Beyond The Cascade is a new release by the artist, who loves hiking and gains her inspiration from her excursions. Many of her better-known prints are testimony to her passion for the beauty of New Zealand.
The living room shows the art print Beyond the Cascades on the wall behind a grey armchair. Meanwhile, a green and blue pillow, with stripes and checkers surface pattern, accessorize the space. The accent pillows respond to the dominant colors of the art print.
Green throw pillows that show a geometric nested circles pattern in particular form the heart of the color matching investigation.
All in all, that includes four distinct pattern appearances that sprang all from the same repeat pattern. To emphasize where the differences lie: The more zoomed in the geometric pattern is, the more it appears bold and tribal. Meanwhile, transforms into an intricate pattern design that transmits an ethnic flair when zooming out. Also, changing the center point gives an additional distinctly different perspective of the printed result.
In short, we distilled it into four patterns. To clarify it further, each of them comes in black and white, with the pillow color shining through. Additionally, converting the pattern design into a monochrome hue of the background color either subdued by shades of black or lightened by shades of white.
In other words, the best pillow pattern feature is, it gives you the chance to color it your way.
In essence, by personalizing the fill color. You choose a pattern design and match it to an existing or planned living room color scheme.

Here in our example, an airy apartment space high above the city serves as a creative playground. Light hues and round shapes support an impression of softness and a state of flowing. The chosen print for blankets and pillows consists of monochromatic round shapes. That reflects the abstracts of an unfurling fern frond.

Altogether, it is a simplistic yet powerful composition. Paintings by the artist shine in their minimalist appearance, stripped off by all clutter to focus on what matters.
