3 Ways to Embrace the Macramé Trend

Macramé is making a comeback this year, taking a new spin on the classic ’70s style. You may have started noticing beautiful macramé that comes in bright, spring colors and neons. There are macramés that are extremely intricate and others that are very basic. If you’re a bit weary about the trend, consider learning a bit more for how to incorporate it in your decor with these tips below…

1. Fill a Space

Use a macramé wall hanging (see above) as a way to fill a blank wall in your home. Since they are coming in a variety of colors you can find the perfect one to match your home. If you want, you could even learn the art of macramé and make a custom piece.

2. Bring Nature Inside

A macramé plant hanger is a great way to start bringing more plants into your home. The neon color adds a modern twist to this vintage treasure. I’ve always liked the look of a few hanging plants at different heights in a section of the house. Another idea I’ve seen is to use the plant hanger as a place to hold sponges or utensils in the kitchen.

3. A Place to Relax

Use a macrame hammock to create a relaxing nook in your home. Check out this beautiful living room hammock as an example. This can be a new way to decorate for the warm summer days coming up fast.
