Recently, we made a run to the fabric store for some fabric for our Etsy shop, and while perusing the fabric aisles, we came upon the home decor burlap fabric.
Burlap! – in the most stylish prints, and colorful solids. It’s been a while since either of us looked at burlap fabric, so we were so surprised, and excited, to see what the world of burlap has been up to lately.
Would you know that you were looking at burlap prints in these photos, or would you think they were other decor fabrics? Even in person, they were so attractive. Look at this lovely damask print –
And, the tailored-look of herringbone –
So what would you do with these burlap prints? How would you use them in your decor?
It would be easy to see this leaf print being used as a roman shade window treatment, or as a table runner for an outdoor fall cookout.
We happened upon these decorative fall burlap pumpkins – now this is a great way to use burlap. Just burlap, a pumpkin form, and some twine. These would be great for a rustic fall decorating theme. Another choice might be covering the form with the actual colors of a pumpkin – that would be easy to do with the burlap colors (below). A grouping of them in different sizes would make a pretty centerpiece for a special outdoor fall dinner.
The solid neutrals are so rich and the bright solids are so vibrant. And, there are more prints too – a bees/honeycomb print, a coffee theme print, a chevron print – and the Greek key print (photo below).
Can you see that red burlap used as a runner on a holiday Christmas table? Or maybe combined with the hunter green? You can check out how one of us used the natural burlap fabric to cover outdoor pots for their Christmas porch decor, here.
Hopefully, burlap prints will include summer designs in the future; maybe some flip flops or cabana stripes.
So after seeing all of these lovely options in burlap, each of us has our own thoughts a-churning, thinking of what decor projects in our own homes could make use of some of this stylish burlap.
Seriously, these stylish trends in burlap are truly inspiring!
