15 Inspirational Fringe Photos For Your Home

Boho chic, completely causual and sometimes even a bit refined, fringe can bring a fun and exciting new element of design to your home’s style. It is the perfect way to add a finishing touch to a furniture piece or to detail accents. Fringe can even be the perfect way to spruce up a pair of older, shabby curtains or other home accessories that are looking a bit on the drab side.

What’s great about fringe is the versatility and the opportunity to create DIY projects out of it. And nowadays, what makes a great part of your home’s design is that fact that you can, in fact, do-it-yourself and have you own creative power behind the process.

Sew some fringe onto an older blanket for a more cultured vibe, glue some onto a lamp for a more traditional appeal or line a window for some surprise! Fringe can come in all colors, sizes and fabrics and depending on your home’s style and what you’re looking for depends, in large, on the type of fabric you choose. If you want  to keep everything classy choose something more refined like silk or polyester. The fringe will end up looking cleaner and more chic. If you want to keep your space very relaxed or pretty eclectic choose something a bit out-of-the-box like lace or another textured fabric.

And even though having the option is nice, you don’t have to actually make that statement piece yourself. Not everyone wants to or has the ability to sew or be super creative. Fortunately, shopping for home accessories adorned with fringe isn’t too hard. Pillows, blankets, lampshades, ottomans and even tapestries have all been known to come with fringed edges.

Although, try not to get confused when shopping. Fringe fabric is different from the new tasseled-beading. If you want fringe without the element of evening opt for the choices that don’t have beads attached to the ends. Too many times people choose to add beautiful, shiny beads to their furniture or accessory edges and the room or space ends up looking more like a nighttime event than a cozy home. And besides, the beads can become tacky or gaudy when used in excess.

Overall, fringe is a innovative way to bring about something different to a home that’s used to clean, sharp edges and simplicity in decor. Don’t be scared of trying something different, if you love it that’s all that matters in the end!{picture 1,2&3,4&5 ,6, 7, 8, 9, 10&11, 12, 13, 14 and 15}.
