Are you also one of those people who have doubts about how to use crochet in decoration? Even though it is a very common craft here, crochet still generates impasses because, most of the time, the pieces are colorful and rich in details. You can rest assured that today we will help you put that favorite crochet in your home decor. Here are our tips: How to use crochet in decoration:
Colors: The oldest and most traditional models of crochet, especially here in Brazil, tend to be more colorful and present strong contrasts. However, in recent times it has also become common to use crochet pieces following the Scandinavian style. That is, they usually bring light colors, neutral and absence of details and prints. Regardless of the style of crochet you intend to use in your decoration, it is only important to pay attention to the harmony of the colors present in the pieces and in the rest of the room. A colorful crochet bedspread with flower details, for example, looks great in a room with white walls and floor, so that the bedspread becomes the protagonist of the room. If the intention is to create a more clean and modern aesthetic, prefer crochet pieces with only one color and smooth texture. You can still explore the use of crochet in decoration by creating points of light and contrast. Imagine, for example, an all blue sofa decorated with yellow crocheted pillows?
Shape and size of the pieces: This tip applies especially to crocheted rugs. When using one in your decor, try to balance the size of the piece with the dimensions of the room. A very large room, for example, becomes disproportionate with a small rug. In this case, to avoid leaving the crochet rug “lost” in the decoration, the tip is to take it to an environment where it can stand out. The shape of the crocheted pieces is another important element. In general, round rugs, for example, inspire delicate, romantic, and even childlike decorations. On the other hand, square and rectangular pieces are more modern.
Crochet in the living room: Crochet is also unbeatable in decorating the living room. The soft, warm texture brings coziness and comfort, two essential things in an environment like this. To use crochet to decorate the living room, invest in pillows, blankets, pouffes, and rugs. Including, it is worth mentioning, that the crochet pieces enhance boho and Scandinavian style decorations. If this is your intention, then you can play with them without fear. Crochet in the bedroom: In the bedroom, the main place to use crochet is on the bed. Crochet bedspreads are still very coveted, and for good reason. They add value to the decor of the room. But crochet in bedroom decoration goes beyond the bed. It can be used in pillow covers, blankets and, of course, in bedside rugs. Crochet organizer baskets are another beautiful way to insert this craft into the room. And it is worth remembering that crochet can and should be used in bedrooms for couples, singles, and children. Crochet in the bathroom: Just like the kitchen, the bathroom is another room in the house where crochet has always been present. Crochet rugs are popular in this environment, especially those in sets that come with toilet cover and toilet roll holder. Another way to use crochet in the bathroom decoration is to bet on the organizer baskets made with this technique. They are beautiful and help keep hygiene and beauty products and items always at hand.
