Add Marble, Architecture and Art to Your Designs

October 6, 2013

A friend of mine just returned from a month-long vacation that spanned a number of locations in Italy. I’ve had the good fortune of seeing a number of cool places in Italy myself, so I joined my friend recently for breakfast to discuss and compare our experiences. Since we did this over breakfast, we definitely covered some of the amazing Italian food we’d enjoyed.

Yet we also talked about three other things that it is easy to find in Italy. There is art everywhere by some of the biggest names of all time. The architecture is incredible and it isn’t uncommon to go in buildings that are hundreds (if not more than a thousand) years old. Here in Cave Creek we have mostly architecture less than 25 years old. As part of the architecture, there is extensive use of marble on floors, walls and it seems like everywhere else.

Sorry, but I can’t help you with getting real Renaissance art or architecture and you’ll have to talk to a contractor about getting some marble. What I can help you do is get art, architecture and marble patterns to use in your designs. There are 122 distinct seamless textures in the Textures Unleashed Volume 11 collection (thumbnails shown below and free PDF catalog available for download) that can be used in almost all design software.
Seamless Marble, Architecture and Art Textures
If you aren’t familiar with how to use seamless textures, we have free PDF and video tutorials on the Textures Unleashed page to show you how to use them. You’ll also find a number of other collections that you may wish to add to your design arsenal. Bring some of the old world to your designs with some new textures!
