Are you ready for more yarn-filled interior inspiration? We started our series of "Scoured" 2 weeks ago, where we searched corners of the globe for beautiful interiors with yarn crafted accessories. We managed to find some pretty 'koel' places (if we could say so ourselves!) that are decked with macramé accessories, making us go [insert a million heart eye emojis here]. This week we put our detective glasses on for gorgeous weaves that have woven their way into interiors of hotels, cafes and more! We love how the weaves take centre stage in the decor, adding texture and interest to these spaces. Scroll further to get inspired... oh and do share with us if you ever chanced upon any yarn-filled spaces worth checking out!
The KOEL team is always on a lookout for beautiful spaces that are filled with yarn accessories, be it in homes or commercial spaces (just imagine us as yarn interior detectives!). If you already have your hands on KOEL Magazine Issue 2, you will find a special KOEL Guide insert filled with a visual feast of spaces from hotels to restaurants that are embracing the yarn movement. Well, we tried to pack in as many yarn-spiring spaces we found in there, but there's just too many popping up across the globe. So we are filling you in with more visual treats... first up, spaces filled with gorgeous macrame designs that will make you feel like it's summer all year round.
A modern-looking crochet proves to be a dime dozen. Search up “crochet” on Google and what you’ll find is a flurry of bright images, with colour combinations that bring you right back to the 80s. Crochet, which literally means “hook” in French, is deemed less popular than their other fibre art counterparts like weaving and knitting. They too, have lesser patterns available as compared to the rest. This makes it much more a rarity to find solid choices of contemporary crochet pieces.
The one factor that sets a modern crochet work apart is the colour palette. Most, if not all, modern crochet pieces are made mono or duo toned. Often times these crochet works adopt neutral palettes, which makes it incredibly flexible for styling. Minimal colour units also ensure and enhance the clean look that one might want to achieve for an updated finish. With that said, the beauty of crochet (and fibre art in general) lies in its versatility. Crochet can be created and interpreted in various forms and sizes — so it’s really no cause of concern if you wish to incorporate crochet into your home, regardless of the interior setting. We’ve dug deep to find you inspiring interiors with crochet pieces, and may have struck gold with these ones.
Crochets are usually found in rounded forms. There is no right and wrong when it comes to the size of a crochet piece — it just depends on how bold you want it to be. Crochet can be worked into the home as a stool cover, a cushion, subtle as a seat support, or more commonly, displayed in larger variations like the rug.
Maintain the modernity of your interiors by sticking to similar tones and you’re well on your way to creating the perfect crochet-loving home.
