Why This Room Caught My Eye

29 July 2014 0


Last week I was going through my stash of throws and blankets and found my Mexican throw that I bought in a store in Seattle last year. I decided to throw it over my bed cause I love the blue and earthy hues with the ethnic pattern on it (see it HERE). Shortly after that I stumbled upon a great article on Apartment Therapy with an ethnic patterned throw used as wall art in a bedroom. I loved it instantly as well as the overall interior styling of the room. Here in a nutshell what caught my eye:

  • Ethnic Wall Art: Well this ethnic textile as wall art is an instant eye catcher. I would try the same in my home I think if only I had a normal wall behind my bed (but I have a pitched roof wall). 
  • Earthy Hues: The entire bedroom styling is tied together with an earthy colour scheme. It perfectly matches the wall art and brings a serene and cosy atmosphere to the bedroom.
  • Monstera Leaf: Monstera leaves have become a major styling trend. From Scandinavian interiors to American homes – people place one or severals Monstera leaves in a large vase and the room gets a very modern and natural touch. The best side effect: Monstera leaves develop roots when kept in water – so after the styling project you can simply plant them in soil and enjoy them for a long time as happy houseplants. 
Would this bedroom catch your eye too?

    I remember your Mexican throw! I will even admit to being just slightly obsessed by it 😉

    Only this morning I was viewing some interior design images that included ethnic wall art like that. Really inspiring! I think if I were to do something like that in my own home I would allow myself to be a bit colourful. I need a trip to a souk in some exotic location!

      You say it!! If my Mexican throw were a tad smaller, I’d consider it as wall art in my living room. At least it sparked some good inspiration:-)

    A little bit of Mexican anything in a room always looks fantastico! I agree with Lisa that I go for a bit more color and would take a trip to Chiapas or Oaxaca any day of the week. Thanks for the inspiration…Anne from ZinniaFolkArts.com
