Decorating Your Home with Quilts
5 Creative Ways to Display Your Quilts
Someone once said, “A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars.” We couldn’t agree more, in fact we think the inviting charm of a country quilt can add the perfect touch to any room in your home. Their versatility instantly makes a room more inviting, lived-in and beckoning. Use quilts in the master or guest bedroom to make every season cozy and comfortable. Quilt sets boasting strong earth tone colors of wine, nutmeg and indigo blue create a welcoming haven from cold weather nights. Floral prints and bright-colored patterns keep things light and airy for spring and summer.
Display quilts on a quilt rack in your foyer for a welcoming touch that takes your quilts out of storage and showcases them where they can be enjoyed every day. If the quilt is a treasured family heirloom it gives everyone the chance to enjoy it, while it’s kept in a safe place.
Smaller quilts, often called lap quilts are stars in the family room. Not only are they beautiful and colorful, but they are also a great cover-up for family movie night.
Don’t forget the nursery! In the crib, draped on a rocking chair or hung on the wall, all offer ways to make baby feel right at home. It can become the focal point of the nursery while adding color and warmth.
Skip the cushions and top a window seat with a quilt. There is nothing better than snuggling in a cozy quilt and reading a good book.
