Montage: 18 Rooms with Woven Wall Hangings

In November I blogged about the revival of the house plant in contemporary decor. Today, it’s about another 1970s decorating phenomenon, woven wall hangings. Woven wall hangings, be they monochromatic macrame wall hangings that look like they came from camp or more involved multicolored multi-textured fiber art extravaganzas, or even just a flat weave rug on the wall with some string pulled out (seriously, I’ve seen that), are everywhere.

Yes, you can find  funky woven wall hangings at Urban Outfitters and several beautiful hand-woven tapestries at Anthropologie, and of course Etsy has a plethora of woven wall hangings. All this weaving is actually referred to as fiber arts by serious artists, and I believe the art is thriving.

When I was visiting a friend in NYC this fall, I noticed a little place on an Upper East Side side street that offered weaving classes. I have a design-oriented friend who was so inspired by the recent spate of wall hangings in decor that she bought her own loom! I can’t wait to see the results. My mother-in-law has a huge, wonderful loom in her attic (she was a weaver before she became painter); perhaps I can get her to stage a revival and whip me something up.

The fiber wall hangings look really beautiful in isolation. I have been tempted to purchase one. But then I wonder if I could really pull off the look. Will it look too wooly? Too hippie? Too trendy? Here are 18 rooms with woven wall hangings that get it right. If you’re interested, I’ll follow up next week with a buying guide. Here’s that buying guide: Get the Look: 18 Woven Wall Hangings.

Very Vignette: Skateboard Art Over A Cot

Bench WIth Kilim Pillows And Statement Photo Of Skateboarder

Domino, Spring 2014

This is a corner of an art-filled house owned by Leanne Citrone, hair stylist and co-owner of Andy Lecompte Salon in L.A. Citrone and her husband, who began their art collection with a beach scene by Massimo Vitali, hired interior designer Lauren Soloff to help integrate their artwork with their decor.

A cot, with what I suspect is a spray painted base, is topped with a ticking covered cushion and stripey kilim pillows in pinks and oranges. Hanging above is a print of a skateboarder by photographer Hugh Holland, just one of three the couple owns. (The others hangs in their son’s room.)

Hugh Holland, who is represented by M+B Photo, documented the skateboarder scene in Los Angeles starting in 1975.

Get the Look: Grey + Green Wallpapers

Here are samples of the grey and green wallpapers I am considering for the wall behind my bed. There is not much wall space, so it needs to be a small scale pattern. The room is large, but dark… I should really take a picture of the dreary room and post it. Maybe later. The headboard is a crisp white cotton duck. And I want to paint the walls green. Let’s not get into the furniture now. Would love opinions, especially from the design types out there. Here are the swatches (I’ll add the sources tomorrow). And, dear husband, should you see this, please let me know what you thinks via a post. (So much more civilized than face-to-face combat, don’t you think?)




Wallpaper Pattern Names

Row 1: Kelly Wearstler Imperial Trellis; Ballard Designs Trellis; Anderson Jazz Collection Leaves; Anderson Leaf Sprig.

Row 2: Flavor Paper Sheba; Flavor Paper Fleur de Saveur; Osborne & Little Wilde Carnation.

Row 3: Graham & Brown Amelie Cream Teardrop; Osborne & Little Oak Leaves; Flavor Paper Vapor.

Row 4: Duro Blomster; Jocelyn Warner Leaf; Cole & Son Woods; Brocade Home Abstract Floral Print.

Row 5: Jill Malek Stampede; Graham & Brown Darcy Pearl Cicrular Geometric; Osborne & Little Trifid.
