Crushing On: Wall Hangings


Hey Guys!

Last week I shared a tutorial (with a video!) for a moroccan wedding blanket inspired wall hanging. It turned out beautifully and since posting it, I've had wall hangings on the brain. So I set out to find gorgeous inspirational spaces to share with you and tips for using wall hangings in your own home.


9 Ways To Use A Wall Hanging

Centered Over A Dresser: Add symmetry to a space by centering a decorative wall hanging over a larger piece like a dresser.

Display In A Collection: Create a gallery wall effect by grouping a few smaller wall hangings and throw in a complimentary piece or two in similar colors.

Add Height To Shorter Furniture Pieces: Tall and Short walls can benefit from this trick. A shorter piece of furniture can have big impact by hanging a large wall hanging above it.

Add A Pop Of Color: Tie in a pop of color by using wall hangings to pop the color throughout a space. It looks great against an otherwise neutral space.
