Modern homemakers are taking their ideas from 16th-century residences. Tapestries are back in fashion. What was once a piece of important furniture in the most elite homes and public spaces, found little use in modern-day homes. Old tapestries are thick, woven large pieces of fabric that hung on a wall or at a window to keep in the heat, but also tell a story. But these are heavy, out of date and purchased by homeowners with particular taste. Today, hanging rugs and tapestries are popping up on walls as beautiful works of art.
Nowadays, tapestries are being used as an easy way to decorate and bring some color to any room in the house without creating damage to the wall or committing to a design. The fabrics are so light that all you need are a few small nails to keep the tapestry in place. If you want a change in style, you can easily take it off the wall and replace it with something else.
This method of decorating is a great way to add a worldly and bohemian or modern look to space. It’s also a wonderful way to add a focal point to a room or behind a piece of furniture, such as a sofa.
Wall tapestries are creative and unique methods to decorate your interior. There are varieties of options available in wall tapestries in term of color, pattern or design like the mandala, a vintage poster, hippie tie-dye or modern spacey designs. The perfect choice depends on the color and decor of your living room as well as the atmosphere you want to give to your room.
Tapestries have gone beyond the idea that they are only suitable for bohemian interiors. While there are loads to be found with elaborate ornament designs, there are also many choices to fit any decor style. Geometric patterns or abstract prints compliment contemporary style, while printed outdoor images, quotes, and minimalist designs fit perfectly with more modern settings.
If you use a tapestry with a lot of patterns, it makes the room look smaller. Mandala-style tapestries make a room warmer and cozier. On the other hand, space and pastel colors are perfect for large living rooms that have a subtle impact and add a unique touch. Galaxy-style tapestries add a modern feel to a living room and really make a statement with its strong palette and black background perfect for a living room that has a little color.
Wall decorating ideas can seem scarce for those who can’t put paint on the walls or hang heavy art pieces. Renters are constantly faced with a number of constraints when it comes to wall furnishing ideas, to save proprietors from additional expenses and responsibility. Most apartments allow for small nail and screw holes, so long as they’re patched up before move out. But no paint, no gaping holes, and certainly no wallpaper making tapestries a great alternative!
What is excellent about tapestries in the living room is that you don’t need to repaint or make holes and you can still add a burst of color that can really lift the space. They are an affordable alternative and can be used as a statement piece that attracts the eye from any corner of the room. These days, a lot of people play it safe and create a standard and basic furnishing to their living room making them less unique. A tapestry can differentiate your living room from the norm and make it memorable as well as warm up your room.
If you have a studio apartment or large open spaces, a great, open way to divide the space is to use a tapestry. It is a stylish, artsy and alternative way to a standard freestanding divider or bookshelf. The lighter the material, the better. You do not want anything heavy hanging from your wall. Once you have found a tapestry light and large enough to fit your needs, simply nail the tops of the tapestry to the ceiling and if you prefer, nail the bottom as well in order to have a fixed divider that doesn’t move when a breeze passes through.
