It is no secret that embroidery is a major trend right now. We are seeing it on runways and in clothing stores everywhere! Even though embroidery has been a crafting skill used on clothing, jewelry, furniture and other home accessories for years and years, it has recently blown up in the fashion industry. We just love how this ancient form of needlework can transform textiles by adding beautiful color, texture and depth. This technique is so versatile in that it is used on high fashion runways, casual day-to-day wear and various pieces throughout the home. Typically in interiors, embroidery is used on furniture pieces, pillows, bedding and drapery. Embroidery is not always necessarily crafted with only threads of yarn; we’ve been seeing more and more decorative items embroidered with beads, metals and even jewels for example. When it comes to incorporating embroidery into your home, we think you’d be surprised with the opportunities that are available. Some of our favorite ways to use this beautiful detail in the home is in more unique ways. We love adding a band of embroidery to drapery panels, finding fun decorative objects with this detail and using bed linens that have just a touch of embroidery along the edges. No matter the place, this technique will be sure to add a little embellishment to your home and definitely add a higher level of craft to the individual pieces.
