10 Tapestries For Around Your Home

Tapestries have movement and add warmth to whatever space they’re added to.  But they’re completely discredited as a design piece. It’s a unique way to bring inspiration into a home and a unique way to transform the personality of a room.They add color, they add that decor element and they add functionality! And what’s even better? It’s an all around inexpensive way to change the look of your home.

Hanging tapestries to the walls of your house whether in your office, hallways, dining room or even in your bedroom create instant art. And depending on the style depends on the transformation. If you’ve got a tapestry that illuminates with Renaissance style, then you’ve got the power to pay homage to the old-world ethos. Or you could even use a tapestry with smooth, clean lines and transform your space to be more modern.

Creating a headboard for your bedroom, hanging one behind your couch or  turning a tapestry on its side to cover more wall space makes for a great focal point in a simple room or to add a bit of fun chaos that plays with the eyes (in a good way of course!). Depending on the pattern, color or artistic scheme depends on how the tapestry will bring the room to life. It could become cozier, more fun or even bring a bit of elegance to the space.

Don’t forget that tapestries are great for the bed and not just behind them! Use all those beautiful tapestries as a bedspread. They’re beautiful, add some spice and can be quite cozy! Using them to brighten up a solid-colored couch is a plus too (great idea for the smaller size tapestries!). They can also bring to life worn out furniture or an easy way to cover all those stains from the kids! Throw one over a sofa or recliner and it’s instant fashion and less of a headache. And speaking of throwing them over things, using a tapestry as a table cover during all of those “not-meal” hours is a great way to spruce up the dining room or coffee table! This is a great idea for holiday get-together’s or even some of those dinner parties when you’d like to impress!
