Woven Textiles | Layer it On

A smattering of boho textiles for a Wednesday morning? Yes, please. Honestly, when my home needs a pick-me-up, layering woven textiles is my go-to decorating trick. Pillows, rugs, tapestries, window treatments and wall hangings are the quickest and least permanent way to spiff up your space. And to prove my point, I submit the evidence below:

Painted Screen

Portable folding screens have been used in the home for centuries.  They are used to cordon off space for dressing, to divide a room or to shield the sun coming from a window or heat from a fireplace.  I am particularly fond of the two painted screens below.  I know its ambitious, but I think I could construct and paint something similar.  Mine certainly won't be as detailed or beautiful, but I think I could achieve a similar affect. What do you think - possible DIY?

P.S.  Charlie is back from his MRI and feeling his normal self again. We won't have any results for a few days, so I'll keep you posted.  Thanks to everyone of you for your positive thoughts and kind words of support.  We feel it!

The Illusionist

Nothing says luxury like a pair of long, floor to ceiling window panels.  I love long drapes.  I have them in every room of my house, except for maybe the kitchen.  Because they require so much fabric, you can really change the look and color scheme of a room with drapes.  Also, depending on how you hang them, you can make your ceilings look higher, your windows look bigger or your doorways look wider.  Long window panels make everything appear a little bit grander than it really is.
