Ever since I spotted those beautiful wall hangings in Morgan Satterfield’s house, I’ve secretly been hoping to score my own masterpiece. Morgan is the author of the Brick House, a great blog when it comes to renovating, DIY’s and mid century modern aesthetic. She just has the knack for thrift shopping and finding affordable precious gems in flea markets and auction houses.
Seriously , how gorgeous is this pieces? And there are plenty more around her house.
It’s interesting how she considers her love for fiber art controversial. I understand that you either love it or hate it but I think these pieces are spot on with the current trend of decorating your house with handcrafted one of a kind pieces. Here are some other examples I found around the web to illustrate this trend and the new wave of weaving.
Some people are even getting crafty themselves. Heather Taylor of L.A. in Bloom shares, besides pictures of her sunny bohemian LA lifestyle, small snippets of her hobby and I am also really fond of the work of New Friends Alexandra Segreti and Kelly Rakowski.
I think this is a great way of adding colour and texture to any interior. For more inspiration do check my Pinterest board Fiber + Textiles.

When it comes to interior decoration I have a soft spot for brass objects and colourful fabrics. If you are looking for the latter Anne-Marie Witmeur’s shop in Ixelles is the right place to be. I discovered the shop the same day I stumbled upon Bonnie & Jane (it is located a bit further down the same street). Here you’ll find a great selection of handwoven blankets and throws from India and killims and pillows from other far of places.
The shop also offers a great selection of handcrafted furniture, objects and jewellery. Every object has a story to tell and the warm and kind shop owner is more than happy to share them with you. I fell head over heels for these painted wooden screens. Ever i saw similar ones here and here I am dying to find my own to hang in the bedroom.
