Interiors Trend: 6 Amazing Wall Tapestries

wall tapestry art work for your wallsThere’s a new trend springing to life and I’m loving it. Wall Tapestries are becoming very popular and I’m wondering how many walls in my own home I can cover with them. As an alternative to a wall print, or even wallpaper, a wall tapestry can breathe life into a dull wall, adding colour, pattern and print in one easy move. I’ve been doing a little digging and have found some of my favourites on a few different sites, but if you do some research there are lots more if this selection isn’t your thing. Check out the links below to purchase any of these I’ve suggested, but also sites like Etsy, Not on the High Street and Society6 have loads more to choose from so do your own digging too.

6 Amazing and Contemporary Wall Tapestries

modern wall hangingThis first one above is what you might expect from a more traditional tapestry or wall hanging, simply done in a more contemporary style. I found this one on Etsy and there are quite a few more from the same seller HERE. It’s a good size, not too dominating but just enough to act like a more traditional art print. You know how I love anything geometric so this one ticks lots of boxes for me.

wall tapestryMy second choice is a less conventional of all the wall tapestries but it’s so cute and quirky I had to include it. This one comes from NOTHS as you may expect and it a knitted variety in vibrant colours which would look incredible in a more modern home. If you’re handy with the knitting needles you could even make one of these yourself. I bet Hobbycraft have some good patterns.

wall tapestryOk so onto some of these larger wall tapestries that I’ve discovered on Etsy, available in a few sizes depending on how much wall you wish to cover. Of course you don’t just have to use them on the wall, they’d also make great covers for a sofa or table. I’ve been drawn to more pastel colours for my choices, but once again have a look around as there are so many to choose from.

wall tapestriesThis little beauty is on a site called, which ships to the UK. Isn’t this one perfect as an example of the Pantone colours for 2016 – Serenity and Rose Quartz. As wall tapestries go this one’s pretty tame, but if you want to add a softer injection of colour into your room, this is just perfect.

wall tapestryI always find a nature picture incredibly calming and this one is no exception. I can see this on a hallway wall, or even a living space. If I had an open plan kitchen diner I think it would look stunning at one end as a feature wall. I could even see it being used in an older kid’s playroom or den. I love the way they can be easily removed (and washed when necessary) and so easily changed too.

wall tapestriesFinally my last choice in stunning wall tapestries is this gold marble version. A hard technique to achieve on a wall, add a tapestry and you’ve instantly got a little glamour and sophistication in the space. I found this one again on Society6 HERE so do go and take a look if you fancy something a little different for your walls this year.

    Hi Jen, I’m so glad to see wall tapestries back on trend. There is so much to look at with them if you know what I mean and such a lot of work goes into them from the artist. My favourite has to be the first little one but I am strangely drawn to the pantone tapestry.

    Ooh Jen, interesting trend. I’d not really thought of having a wall hnaging or tapestry in my house. Do you have one? I like them though, how do you attach the ones that are just fabric? What would you suggest? Pins?

      Hey Lucy, I’d discovered them recently and thought they were very cool, particularly love those from Society6. Pins would work, or how about command strips? Easy to remove then too. I don’t have one…yet 😉 x

    What a great way to make a (temporary) statement in your home. As others have said, perfect if you don’t quite want to commit to something more permanent like wallpaper. And great for those who rent.
