CURRENTLY OBSESSED: FEATHERS

Feathers have a natural sense of beauty, so why not bring this allurement into your home? By utilizing textiles with feathered patterns, you instantly bring in a sense of outdoor splendor. By using real feathers in vases, hanging dream catchers, or even layering in textiles made of feathers—you can add a soft texture to a space. It’s light and beautiful.

CAMEROON FEATHER HAT

Any art piece can make a dramatic statement on a wall, but a traditional feather headdress from Cameroon makes a bold, textural statement. These vivid feather headdresses are traditionally worn by Village Chiefs in the Cameroon region of central Africa. The bright feathers represent the wealth of positive qualities associated with birds and symbolize prosperity. Between their intense colors and prosperous meanings, we think they make a wonderful piece of art.

SHEER GENIUS

Sheers can be a wonderful way to soften a space, and paired with custom drapery—they can instantly add depth and texture to your windows. But sometimes sheers can stand-alone and become their own special treatment. We were impressed and inspired by the photos of sheers above. The way the textile is used in these rooms is just sheer genius.

GEOMETRIC COLOR

There’s just something about these clean-lined patterns and shapes that have us drawn to all things geometric. May it be sculpture art, a patterned textile, or a painted wall—it all adds visual interest to a space.

Of course, adding color takes these geometric designs to another level (which we love). Above is our inspiration board full of geometric color!
