Interior Obsessions – Textiles

When we think of textiles for use in the home, typically our thoughts go directly to towels or sheets, and perhaps to pillows and upholstery. But there are other great ways to use fabric-type items within your modern interior, and a wonderful selection of textile types to use as well.

You can add textiles to your interior environment in the form of screens, wall hangings, lampshades, baffles, blankets and throws. And the materials available in these styles range from macramé to shell, wood to standard fabric. This is a great way to add visual texture and perhaps a pop of color to your room without making a more permanent investment.

Love these. Especially that top one. Would make a great room divider for a small NYC apt like mine. 🙂 -Claudia

Dreaming of Palm Trees

The top is my favorite too Dreaming of Palm Trees. Although the very last image is a close second. Thanks for stopping by!


Ooh! I love everything about the tent space, such a beautiful combination of soft and hard.

Oh goodness, these images are amazing! I love the bedroom with the fabric over head, it’s beautiful… and the first image makes me want to learn macrame 🙂

I would LOVE to wake up in that room with the tent-like baffels!
