Maybe it’s the way they drape or the texture they add to a space, but hanging elements seem to be having a major moment in design right now. Whether it’s the revived 70s-chic look of macrame and woven wall hangings, dramatic hanging plants or artfully conceived backdrops (see below), hanging décor has made its way into almost every home tour we’ve run for the past year. For me, hanging décor provides multiple design solutions at once: it offers texture and color, it can add depth and sound proofing, and it can fill awkward spaces (especially in corners) by being suspended in the air. So today I’m taking a look at 20 incredible examples of hanging décor that have inspired me to rethink my “living with empty walls” mantra for this year. Hopefully these rooms can provide some clever DIY solutions for spring and summer decorating. xo, grace
Vivian continues, “We wanted a floor plan that opened to the outdoors as much as possible. A place to showcase the art we collect in an inviting, user/dog-friendly space. A place to casually entertain guests while we cook. We chose a Danish dining table/chairs to maximize our view of the fields behind our house that will one day include more sculptures.” The Neill’s worked with architect firm, Howorth & Associates to see their vision to fruition.
An apartment in Helsinki, Finland houses this 300-year-old, restored “Könni” wall clock. It was handed down to Ulla-Maija by her mother’s family — still chiming every hour on the hour as it would centuries ago. She believes a home is made gradually over time through pieces that reveal one’s true past, present and future. “You add to it as you go, and little by little it becomes a reflection of who you are and where you’ve been.” Ulla-Maija’s decorative ideology is represented in a space full of meaningful family heirlooms, including a family tree gallery wall of portraits dating back to the 1800s.
Kristen’s Storied Home in Kansas City is full of furniture and jewelry passed down from family members, but she is particularly sentimental about this buffet made by her grandfather and great-grandfather in 1963 (and considers it one of her most precious possessions). She uses the made-up word anemoia from John Koenig’s Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, meaning “a pang of nostalgia for times you’ve never experienced,” to describe her love affair with objects that tell stories of the past.
Dana McClure keeps her grandmother’s Chantilly Lace, along with other family heirlooms like this gold framed mirror, jewelry boxes and display trays resting on her great aunt’s Dorothy Draper dresser. “I never wear [it], but the smell brings me back to being six years old and playing dress-up in her bedroom.” This is her favorite spot in her New York state farmhouse to wind down after a long day and fill her heart with warm memories of her childhood.
Pillows might be my favorite styling tool. They bring color, texture, pattern and comfort into a space. They’re less expensive than most accessories and furniture and can be easily swapped, recovered or stored to update a space for the season. Pillows aren’t just a way to decorate a couch — they can be used as extra seating on the floor, a backrest for a daybed or bench, or as extra cushion on a piece of un-upholstered furniture. We have 10 styling examples to show you how pillows add a soft, welcoming presence to any space, indoor and out. –Lauren
