We must have spent an hour slowing looking at our friend Christopher Baker‘s beautiful online portfolios. We found ourselves culling images with a single theme: natural textiles used in original absolutely doable ways, no uptight styling here. Just a fine trove of ideas.
Like the heavy linen painted dirty pink —perhaps preparation for a painting —tacked to a wall: perfect unto itself.
Mismatched blanks and a gingham curtain hanging on a curved rod…
A vintage robe becomes a decorative hanging. We love the gently bowed wooden rod (could it be the same as above?)
Draped curtains filter and let in the light on a sofa covered with a quilt and strewn with pillows. The wall stencils are wonderful.
An outdoor living room: garden furniture along with chairs padded with pillows and quilts + one upholstered indoor chair arranged for hanging out and looking at the view.
An armchair hairs draped with striped fabric, which may be tied…
Colorful runs of fabric hung over a beam make a room divider. Tow beds pushed together, with mismatched covers become sleeping bed and day bed for napping.
