Wanderlust Collectables: 3 Ways To Decorate With Quilts
The art of quilt making is a timeless tradition, often passed down through the generations. In many cultures, quilts are prized family heirlooms and precious keepsakes to be enjoyed by the whole family. Here we share three simple ways to decorate with these timeless pieces.
Pattern on Pattern
It is a designer trick of the trade, but we love pairing patterns with other bold patterns for a truly inspired look. The trick here is to use at least three different patterns to achieve a designer look. Use a patchwork or patterned quilt as a statement piece. Place it on the end of your bed and complement it with matching tones and accent pieces throughout the bedroom. Additional layers of complementary or contrasting patterns in smaller sizes boost visual interest.
A pop of colour and texture
In a more minimalist or neutral space, add a colourful quilt to a room for instant upliftment and a strong dose of colour. Keep the rest of the room toned down in whites, beige and even grey and let a bold patterned quilt steal the show – adding colour and texture to an otherwise muted room.
Reversible Kantha Quilts
Beautiful and unique Kantha quilts are striking and colourful. Reversible kantha quilts give you the added versatility of being able to change things up with one statement piece. It’s a great way to embrace handcrafted quality and bring bold colour to your room. Use a kantha quilt as a bedspread, sofa throw or for decoration. These also make the perfect house-warming or wedding gifts.
At Wanderlust Collectables, you will find 100% cotton hand-block printed quilts and patchwork traditional throws which are completely handmade – using traditional fabrics, created by a team of artisans – then hand-quilted by a women’s co-operative in rural villages outside of the city. Each piece is a true one-off and designed to last more than one generation.
