Home Tweak: Framed Textiles

Tuesday, September 26, 2017










A couple of weeks ago while visiting a friend, I spotted a framed piece of beautifully embroidered cloth. It looked stunning and unusual, so I asked about it. Thomas said it was his grandmother's tablecloth that she made decades ago and it had a great significant for the family. Anyway, eventually it ended up with him, but it was so old and worn that it tore easily. In hopes to preserve it, his wife framed it for memory and now it hangs in their bedroom.

Isn't that special? So, if you have a favourite textile designer or pieces of fabric that are too precious to bin, or like Thomas, you're trying to keep a memory alive, you should frame those gems and let them be part of your home.

I'm planning to frame a very old tea towel that I never use in the kitchen, because it's too special:)

P.S: Here is a nifty tutorial, if you fancy trying it too.
P.P.S: Also, light bulb vases and Kilim rugs.

Oooh, I love the sitting-room arrangement in Photo #3: botanical framed art, oodles of deep blue and dark green, textured fabrics: all this cosiness is inviting, I'm in! xo
