The Beaded Home

Design is so often in the details that I find myself overlooking the sweetest of artistic touches in the home. It wasn’t until I perused my favorite international sites this morning that I noticed a similar theme popping up: wooden beads. Whether incorporated into the home as a functional cord or decorative planter, I’m loving the trend.

Here’s a look at a few great ideas you can try on your own!:

Above, Annaleena shared her “home necklace DIY” on Emmas Design Blogg, and I can’t wait to try the look myself! I can see it used as a window pull, but also as a sweet surprise hanging on an entryway wall.

In this photo, Riikka created a plant hanger using rope/twine and wooden beads. What a modern take on the vintage macrame technique!

How about this super smart idea? Beads can transform your everyday drawer pulls in a pinch. Above, Bolaget features a black modern design. Below, Tingelings opted for a more homespun look.

And lastly, wooden beads can offer a creative take on wardrobe storage. Don’t you love the below idea from Hommin?

So friends – are you inspired to take on the trend, one bead at a time? Happy crafting!

Why Don’t You…?

Sometimes all it takes is a subtle, inexpensive alteration to make a room come alive. Take this space, for example:

You see it, don’t you? A giant ball of thick yarn hanging from an otherwise-overlooked chandelier creates just the right amount of drama and movement to make you look twice. I can almost guarantee you have something hangable in your own home that will cost zero bucks for a massive impact.

Why not give it a go?
