Get the Look: 18 Woven Wall Hangings

I showed these woven wall hanging collages to my husband knowing exactly what he would say. He didn’t disappoint. “Is it 1969? 1971? #7 looks like something my mother used to weave.” To which I responded, “If you read my blog you’d know I already talked about hitting up your mom for a weaving.”

If you were inspired by last week’s decor post “18 Rooms with Woven Wall Hangings,” you might find a woven wall hanging here. These 18 woven wall hangings are all for sale (from mainstream brands and StyleCarrot partners, as well as indie shops and makers). Anthropologie commissioned Robert Dougherty and Janelle Pietrzak of Los Angeles studio All Roads Design to create a few one-of-a-kind handwoven tapestries. Urban Outfitters has a an array of about 20 wall hangings, in macrame, hemp, and wool, with metal and wood accents. Interior designer Nate Berkus even created a woven wall hanging for his Nate Berkus x Target collection.

My favorite woven wall hanging here is #1 by All Roads Design, which would look fantastic in the Florida condo. But it’s pricey, so I ordered #10 by Rainie Williams in Newcastle Australia. It should look perfect with the coral and pink pillows and artwork. (You can see a photo of the Florida living room in the cork floors post). There’s something quite cool about #11 too; I think I may try something similar in the model apartment I am decorating.

Would you hang one of these in your home? Or are you afraid it would seem misplaced in time? Or too trendy? Or ugly? I think some are quite elegant. When you click through to some of these handmade woven wall hangings on Etsy, you’ll be able to see other designs too. Let me know if you buy one and send a photo of your tapestry in situ.

Giveaway: Win a Belt from KeepYourPantsOn.com

I have less of a waist then I’d like, so belts aren’t always at the top of my list. I have two skinny patent leather Calvin Klein belts from the early 1990s (belts were enjoying a moment back then), that have long been relegated to my luggage accoutrements, perfect for securing a stack of folded clothing in a suitcase. Sadly, they will likely never fit again, so no matter how prominent belts become, there they’ll stay.

I purchased a stretchy elastic belt with a hook that I might wear with a dress, but feeling way too bloated of late, the last time I wore it was with my “Like a Virgin” Madonna getup for an 1980s theme party last summer.

For everyday, I have a great medium width black belt with little brass studs and buckle that I tend to use to keep my pants up, if necessary. Walking around as though I have a loaded diaper is probably not the best look, so I have been making a fair effort to take the time to thread my belt through my Lycra-infused Madewell jeans belt loops. It’s pliable and goes with everything. I also have a wider, totally worn caramel leather colored belt with matte brass buckle that’s perfect when I’m going with more of a natural, neutral look.

The other day I bought skinny zipper pants (with two percent stretch) at J.Crew, and it being summer, also picked up a skinny perforated leather belt on which the perforations go all the way around. (Who knows, I could love three inches if I starved myself. And my belt would still fit, or so exclaimed the perky stylist.) The buckle is a too shiny gold tone, but I won’t be tucking in my popover, so it’s not really an issue. (Except for me, privately, but I’m trying to get over it.)

An in other personal belt news, my boys, who are just a year apart in age and about the same size, have been sharing one belt between them. They go to different schools, so dress up days vary and it hasn’t been an issue. Last weekend we all had to go to a bar mitzvah so I had to buy another belt. Two belts in one week, a personal record.

Before you totally fall asleep with the ins and outs of my belt life, I want to introduce a KeepYourPantsOn.com. Founder Sivan Soffer has kindly offered a $50 gift card to KeepYourPantsOn.com for one StyleCarrot reader. The site has a large selection and the prices are quite good, so depending on the style(s) you choose, you will likely be able to get more than one new belt for yourself.

KeepYourPantsOn.com has skinny belts, wide belts, stretchy elastic belts, metallic belts, beaded belts, rope belts, and a variety of belt buckles too. You can even design your own belt. Here are ten belts I like from KeepYourPantsOn.com:
