Decorating With Quilts
Cozy Up to These Decorating Ideas With Quilts
Quilts offer far more than just a way to stay warm at night. Their individual beauty makes them the perfect interior-decorating element in just about any room. Of course you can use them as a bedspread (think about layering several styles in a similar color palette for an interesting look!). Also consider adding them as a handy throw in your family room. Show off their artistic value when you hang one on an otherwise empty wall. Drape multiple quilts over second floor railings so that those below can enjoy their beauty, or pile several on quilt racks in your guest room to add a welcoming charm.
Springtime florals take on a whole new look when you bring a little French toile quilt into the mix. Choose one in characteristic blue and ivory, or try a fresh berries and cream color duo. Layer it with classic stripes for a French look that says “ooh la la!”
Pile on the Paisley
There is a reason that paisley prints remain a perennial favorite. Their intriguing pattern is elegant and vintage all at the same time. This spring, see how a blocked paisley print can add a special touch to your bedroom. Or try tossing it across the back of a sofa in your living room to bring a breath of spring to your space.
Hang it Up
The beauty of quilts extends far beyond just snuggling up with one or topping off your guest room bed. Quilts look beautiful when hung on a wall, or gracing an entryway bench with a quilted throw. Try draping multiple quilts over second floor railings so that those below can enjoy their beauty. And of course, a quilt rack is a perfect way to show off several of your favorite quilts in a family room.
Often, our first impression of quilts is that of handmade masterpieces with country charm. But, today’s quilts offer so many more style choices than just those classics. Try adding one in a bold colorful stripe for a modern appeal with all the classic reasons why quilts remain so appealing.
