Wall decorations

I am always finding new ideas for other ways to create tapestries and wall hangings, and I always keep photos I can find. So I decided to make a post to collect most of the pictures. These pictures feature not only wall hangings but various fabrics and textiles I would really love to incorporate into tapestries of my own.



I love this wall hanging pictured above because it’s a simple statement the texture, color, materials and tassels are all elements I love working with.

The series of photos below are of beautiful textured blankets that feature a bit of sparkle, shaggy, ivory and silver elements that I love, and this really inspires me with a lot of what I have been working with.

The series below is a new take on the dream catcher that I have been seeing around a lot.




The next series is of macrame and loom woven wall hangings that always add good texture to any wall.

The next series is of the type of western and moroccan patterns and textiles I always love, and are possibly the biggest source of inpiration with any decor.

The next series is all about flags because they always present a new and interesting base to work off from when I make tapestries.




The next and last sereis is of showing any other fabrics styled or sewn in ways that inspire my wall decorations.

The last picture below is a reference to an idea I had for another wall hanging I want to make but I have no wall space for. I want to make a tapestry of belts palced at different layers and add in other textures of trims and maybe a little bit of fabrics peeking out from the belts. I love this idea because it would give me a reason to buy all the second hand belts I like that I always find but can never fit, and also becuase it would add an amazing rich texture to a wall. The picture is from a Free People vintage buyer’s home and it features the exact kind of belts I want to use because they are radom, textural, different sizes and all look very expensive and worn which would make for a perfect wall accent.
