Overlooked Art Forms: Textiles

Hello again, friends! So, in case you missed them, thus far in our Meaningful Art series, we’ve talked about how to remember your first home, and some DIY projects that will instantly make your house feel more like a home. Today, I wanted to share one of the most overlooked forms of art for your home: textiles.


Textiles are one of the simplest ways to incorporate art into your home. Patterns, textures, color… they utilize all of these elements to create powerful visuals that can make any wall, corner, floor beautiful. Don’t want to buy a large piece of art to hang in the bathroom? Choose some patterned towels and a set of colorful curtains instead. Want to keep large pieces of art neutral but aching for some color? Pillows are the perfect for adding interest and color to living rooms and bedrooms. And because they come with such a small price tag, you can easily (and guiltlessly!) switch them out as preferences and trends change.

I’ll be covering a few more overlooked art forms in the coming months so stay tuned to see simple ways you can incorporate meaningful art into your home.
