Bring On The Boho Vibes With These Handmade Home Projects
For a little extra inspiration, the Domino editors’ favorite Instagrammers takeover our feed each weekend. It’s safe to say tips and covetable images are aplenty. Here’s what you need to know about the most recent feature!
We love following Emily Katz for her endless Boho inspiration, and macrame, of course. Just in case you didn’t know, she creates installations and teaches the art of macrame in workshops around the world—and is also a creative consultant and interior designer. She learned the craft from her mother at a young age and has since expanded her skills to create various home decor items. Most recently, Katz launched her first book, Modern Macrame, that is a contemporary guide to the craft. She takes you through the basics of macrame, provides instructions for everything from creating effortless plant hangers to wall hangings, lighting, rugs and so much more. All you need is some string.
This weekend, the skilled artisan took over Domino’s Instagram feed to share tips on how to add modern macrame into our homes this summer.
First up: the rustic hanger you see above. It’s made up of a few different hanging planters and is a great way to bring life into your home over the hotter months.
As boho decor continues to gain popularity, designers continue to get more and more creative with their craft. We love this ethereal summer solstice mobile that’s placed perfectly above the bed. As Katz mentions, these are great for any room of the home, including the kids’ room, and relatively easy to make.
Who said that boho vibes have to be limited to the inside? Get a group together to create this super cool garland that can double as a tablescape drape (or wall decor, for that matter). Not only is it multifunctional, but is adds the perfect finishing touch to this green patio.
