Decorate With Tapestries And Bring Old World Charm To Your Interiors.

If you want to create an antique decor in your home, you may want to try using an antique tapestry. You can use an older style tapestry to create a beautiful centerpiece or focal point in the room. There are many different types of original designs to choose from, each providing an individual look. Tapestries offer a unique style in decorating any room. A tapestry can be the central core that you decorate a room around, or it can enhance the decor you already have. Bring out one of the main colors of the tapestry to help blend the colors in your room.

Your tapestry wall hangings will last through generations. Owning even one is a true investment. Pictures on your wall are nice, but a home adorned with tapestries makes a personal, elegant statement. Decorating with hanging tapestries is a wonderful way to add class and elegance to your home.


Tapestries are a must for stairways!


A gorgeous room that is built around this fabulous tapestry.



Upholstered pieces are a good way to add a touch of tapestry to a room.


Most people think tapestries are only used in ornate rooms. This, pic proves how elegant they can be in the simple loveliness of French Country.


One of my favorite designers! He is know for the Old World design he brings to a room.


Another beautiful upholstered piece using tapestry.



This bedroom was designed by me and has two beautiful  tapestry pillows on the window seat.

More examples of tapestry pillows. A great way to add a small touch of Old World to your interiors.


A work of art! A tapestry also beings warmth and texture to a room that  pictures can't do.

This hall, in my own home, is an example of how you can use a smaller tapestry for an Old World feel. The large tapestries are very expensive but there are smaller sizes  that are more affordable  This is an antique French tapestry that features a hunt scene with riders and even has a castle.



Heavily layer but it all works!!



This is another room designed by me. It is an example of how a smaller French tapestry can be used along with other pictures, mirrors, etc. for a nice Old World grouping. This tapestry measures 47"X 36".


Remember you can  put tables and other furniture in front of your tapestry. It is a background.



Tapestries tend to be woven in neutral colors. However there are some colorful examples out there. They are usually more expensive. Remember smaller spaces call for smaller tapestries so you may find a smaller, less expensive treasure during a trip to a local antique store or vintage market.


This tapestry becomes the focal point and anchors this whole room.


They definitely provide and Old World atmosphere to an interior.


And they are beautiful when used as the focal point of a bed.



The tapestry used in this dining room is Moroccan inspired and is a nice size even when used  on these 12' tall walls.I found this one on Ebay.


You can hang a tapestry from a rod or actually frame it with molding. It doesn't matter, they are lovely either way!

Use a tapestry as a headboard!


An elegant work of art for this log home wall.


There are a number of ways to use tapestries, just think outside the box.

  3. Love the bedroom by you! I have this desk too. I think mine will get an overhaul this weekend to fancy it up a bit and refresh it! The bedroom look in general is just the inspiration I needed for the MBR. I'm so sick of looking at a mis-mash of blandness :)
