Burlap Knows No Boundaries!

No matter if you are a total Bohemian at heart or live the glamorous life of “The Bold & The Beautiful”, you can stretch your boundaries with burlap! Originally known for its utilitarian purpose, Burlap has evolved into a versatile textile for home décor.  It looks amazing in an eclectic environment and adds a touch of soft reality to space that otherwise maybe too bewitching. The fabric now comes in a large variety of weaves and blends, textures, colors and even prints!

Here are a few tips on how you may want to incorporate basic Burlap fabrics into your space:

Window Treatments:  A loose weave of burlap will work best as it will let light filter into your space, yet you will still have the necessary privacy you need.

Upholstering Furniture:  When upholstering your furniture with burlap look for a blended yet tight weave.  This will give you a sturdy fabric that will be long lasting and most importantly comfortable to the touch.  Look for linen-like burlap that will provide comfort, yet will give your room a more polished look.

Wall Covering:  Just like wallpaper, burlap can be used on your walls to create a cozy and warm environment.  The fabric is laminated to paper before being applied to the wall.

Accents:  From ottomans, pillows, place mats, to lamp shades, cork boards and bed skirts … the sky is the limit when it comes to how you can use burlap.  If you just want to incorporate a hint of burlap in to your space, small accents are the way-to-go!

 

I would love to hear how you use burlap in your space!  Post a comment below or send me a photo!

Keep Dreaming, Designing and Dwelling

Cheers!

  1. Burlap! Brilliance …What an excellent ideal…I have been considering drapes in a washed belgium linen, this may indeed provide just the look and weight. Thanks for the information.

  2. I am interested in adding burlap on a wall. I would like to have it in a more ‘loose’ install than tight like wallcovering. Do you have any recommendations for where I can purchase rolls of burlap and how to install it for the ‘loose’ appearance? Please advise. Thank you in advance!
