Using tapestries for the special spaces - decorating solutions
When choosing a tapestry
for your wall decor, follow your intuition first, as it always suggests choice
the most convenient to you. But whatever your taste or feelings are, the space
that you want to use for hanging a tapestry may pose special decorating challenges.
If your room feels too large, seems small or narrow, using a "right" tapestry
can help minimize these problems.
Here are some decorative solutions for using tapestries that work best for such
of a "right" tapestry
your room seems small…
a large landscape tapestry with a remote horizon will help enlarge visually
small room and create illusion of larger space.
your room seems narrow…
broaden narrow space, it's a good idea to paint one wall a darker and richer
color, hang an exciting bright-colored tapestry on that wall (contemporary
botanical designs will work the best), and then hang a mirror on the opposite
wall. The reflected tapestry will make the room appear wider.
your room has a low ceiling…
try using a darker floor covering and a lighter color for ceiling. Walls
will increase the height of low ceiling and attract the eyes towards the
top of the room. Using a tapestry of a portrait format (taller than wider)
and with strong vertical lines will add a sense of height.
warm up a stark room…
style is a good way to warm up space. Using a tapestry with a country scene
along with other country-styles accessories (antiques, quilts etc.) will
create a cozier feeling. Visit our collection of Tuscan
tapestries for more ideas.
fresh air for a small, dark or narrow room…
the outdoor inside your home with some beautiful landscape or coastal tapestries
to give your room a breath of fresh air and brighten space with bursts of
lighten up a room…
tapestry (or several tapestries in a row) of landscape format (wider than
taller) with strong horizontal lines and light expansive colors will create
the illusion of increased length in your room. Tapestries with panoramic
views will work very well.
rooms with few or no windows…
tapestries with windows, doorways and archways will lead the eyes outside
and create illusion of added space and light.
your room is too large…
a series of small tapestries on a large or blank wall will optically diminish
space and scale down a large room.
