"Posters on your wall are nice, but a home adorned with tapestries makes a personal, elegant statement."
In today's larger homes, traditional artwork can easily be lost. Great rooms, large masters, home theater spaces and large living spaces need larger art pieces that can anchor a space, and create visual drama that can be felt as well as seen. Large wall tapestries are used by art savvy homeowners as a way to enrich a home. Ranging from traditional themes and depictions of classic works of art to more contemporary pieces, tapestries can add drama and color to your home in a number of ways.
To help you add these works to your home and dramatically change the look of any space you display them in, designers offer these 3 guidelines for how to use large tapestries in the home:
Use large wall tapestries as a focal point in a room.
Because of their size, these large works will create a focal point in any room. For instance, you can use them in your formal lounge to create visual interest and draw the visitor's attention to the center of the room. Or you can add one to your dining room to create the impression of a mural. Because tapestries come in an array of sizes, you can easily find one to fit nearly any space you have in your home, even if your wall space is very large.
Draw attention to an architectural feature.
Many homes have grand staircases that lead to the upstairs. Often, large tapestries can be used on the wall space to draw attention to the beautiful architectural details of the stairway, the stairwell or the landing. Depending on the design of your home, you can also use large wall hangings in the entryway to draw the eye up to a chandelier or use several tapestries to bring scale to a large wall, such as a two story vaulted great room. When wall hangings for these spaces, be sure you choose the proper size and orientation for maximum impact.
Create the impression of added space or 'perspective'.
Many homeowners use mirrors to create the visual impression of space in their homes. Large wall tapestries can accomplish the same thing and much more. Rather than making a room look bigger or more spacious, wall hangings can create a gateway to another world, taking the visitor into the tapestry, which appears as if one can walk right into it. They can also be used to create a visual transition from one living space to another. For instance, a garden scene or a still life of flowers can be used to bridge the interior of the home with the gardens outside. As you can see, large wall tapestries can be used any number of ways to add color, drama and beauty to your home. They can be used to create a focal point in a room, draw attention to a particular architecture element or feature, create an impression of additional space or serve as a bridge between living spaces. As wall decor, tapestries can be used to decorate your home in a way that is unique, and that has a drama and an impact, that can be both felt as well as seen.
