Tapestries and Banners for the Home

I have always found delight in the study of design and art, especially with regard to home decor. When decorating a space, a good designer incorporates colour and texture to diversify elements of the space.

Wall colour, furniture style and accents are the basic parts of the decor of a room; but the addition of trim, mouldings, rugs, sculptures, and the use of tapestries can enrich the decor and overall enjoyment of the environment in a space.

I made a very unique find the other day while shopping at my fabric supplier and was able to create a beautiful tapestry to hang on my wall.


As you can see, it is a gorgeous, red jacquard material with medium sized dragons embroidered in a not too overwhelming pattern.

(I say not too overwhelming because I can imagine an entire sofa upholstered  in this material and I think that there would definitely be too many dragons)

I purchased enough material to make 3 tapestries, each about 1.5 Meters long and 50 cm wide. I added a black and tan fringe to the bottom, to accent the inverted triangle at the bottom. I think that by finishing the piece in this way, gives it more texture and looks more pleasing to the eye.


I mounted one of the tapestries to the wall in my foyer, as I am in the process of redecorating the area. Meanwhile the other two will make great unique gifts for Christmas.

Thanks for reading,
