How to decorate with tapestries

I love decorating for cheap. And one of my best friend’s in accomplishing that is by using tapestries. They add a dash of color, pattern and hippie vibes. They’re pretty great. And they’re nearly always under $15.

Nowadays you can find them in more than the tree of life and mandala prints that have been around for ages. Did you know they even have metallic print tapestries? I was skeptical and the curiosity got the best of me so I ordered and shazam, they sparkle.

You can totally use tapestries to decorate your space even if you have a more “refined” design style. I’ve brought together a couple examples in my own home and a few of my friend’s below.

And then, because the fabric is so dang inexpensive, you can use it to make pillows and fitted cushions and anything else you’d make with fabric. I really just like leaving them in tact and draping them over everything. But that’s just one more way I’m lazy about things 😉

Be well and happy decorating my friends!
