Carpet on the wall: a new trend - a forgotten old


Is there a carpet on the wall?How so, after all, this is a relic of the past, a dust collector - by no means! So many people now think. But don't rush to criticize. Carpets are back in fashion, and they are not going to give up their positions, no matter what they say. Previously, carpets were an obligatory attribute of the interior, more demonstrating the wealth and status of their owner. Most often they did not fit into the big picture and looked ridiculous. But not everywhere and not always. Someone bought carpets to provide warmth and sound insulation. It is known that fashion tends to come back. The same thing happened with carpets. How to find a place for a carpet in a modern interior? Today we will make the case for wall hangings.

1. Modern style and wall carpet

It's hard to imagine an oriental style without a wallcarpet that creates a comfortable atmosphere of calmness and home warmth. Combined with cushions and ottomans, the interior creates a luxurious look. Wall carpets in the Moroccan style look colorful and juicy. Vintage, Scandinavian, mixed eclectic interiors - rugs everywhere will be appropriate. They are also good in Indian, medieval, classic interiors. How do you like this design? I just want to sit on a soft pillow lying next to it, leaf through the pages of books and listen to music from records. Agree, these interiors are warm. Warm, fashionable - and you don't have to clutter up the entire wall. Evgeny Milner, director of the furniture salon "Trio": - Of course, everything has the right to life. It all depends on the situation and the interior. The oriental motive often requires this element. But in my memory and in many of our compatriots, the carpet on the wall is greetings from the USSR. Therefore, I prefer the carpet under my feet. For example, patchwork carpets made from rags are now popular.

2. Panels and tapestries

By the way, who said they should belarge and on the whole wall? Designers offer a great alternative: panels and tapestries. For example, you can apply such decor in a very fashionable loft style today. An overly spacious interior looks complete and balanced thanks to the soft panel. Against a dark background, this element creates the desired contrast, emphasizing the beauty of the patterns on the carpet and surrounding objects. Tapestries and panels can serve as accent details in the interior. They look not at all old-fashioned, not banal, on the contrary - exquisite. Vadim Materosyants, interior designer: - Carpets on the walls are already in the past. I believe that any style can be emphasized in a different way. It is better to put the carpet on the floor, and decorate the walls with oriental accessories (if we are talking about oriental style), mirrors, paintings. An imitation of a carpet, drawn by the hand of an artist-decorator, looks much more interesting.

3. Non-standard fastenings of wall carpets

We offer you to see how to fix carpets on the wallin an unusual way. Perhaps non-standard techniques will appeal to you and dispel the negative attitude towards wall hangings. Interesting, stylish and fresh. And most importantly, you don't need to make many holes in the walls. In some cases, you can do without one nail at all or even without it. Our opinion: - It is important that the shape of the wall carpet matches the general lines of the entire interior. To successfully integrate wall hangings into a modern interior, choose models with simple geometric patterns in monochrome tones.

4. Color Kaleidoscope

Wall hangings can be compared to coloredkaleidoscope. Remember how in childhood you were fascinated by the bright patterns that were born in him? Carpets with beautiful ornaments leave a feeling of joy and pleasant impressions. One such bright element in the interior is enough to make the space look beautiful, interesting and creative. Furniture in this case will do the simplest. A place for carpet can be found in any room, be it a living room or a bedroom. Elena Lazareva, creative director of the WK School of Art and Design (London), designer, teacher: - I'm not a fan of carpets on the wall, but I would use it just like a painting or a panel. In order to emphasize the compositional center of the interior, create a focal point.

5. Comfortable combination

The space will look harmonious ifthe carpet can be combined with various elements of decor or furniture. For example, yellow flowers on a carpet and a bedside table in the same color. In addition to color, they also match perfectly in shape. So, it is better when carpet patterns are combined with furniture into one composition. A bright carpet can visually reduce the space. In a small room, pastel monochromatic shades are more appropriate. If you want to pay attention to the carpet, good. It is perfect as a headboard. If you find a place for him in the living room, then let the furniture and accessories be in gray. Gray is neutral and will not distract attention. Our opinion: - Be sure to consider the colors in which the space is arranged. Carpets with pastel color palette look interesting on light walls. On dark walls, juicy, variegated colors, such as red, orange and blue, will look more expressive. Carpets with neutral shades also go well with dark walls: beige, gray, white. Despite the fact that many strive for minimalism, everyone wants home warmth. Especially during the cold period. The wall-mounted carpet is just that "lifeline" that can not only warm you at any time, but also give the interior a stylish and luxurious look.
