Knitted Home Decor – Interior Inspiration

Baby it’s cold outside! While many parts of the world have been experiencing some of the chilliest temperatures on record, we thought we would send you some warm and cozy interior design inspiration, featuring the modern wave of knitted home decor.

Chunky knits, tight knits, knitted wallpaper, knitted lights; pillows, rugs and furniture.  When the temperatures drop, these knitted accessories add a touch of physical and visual warmth to your home.  Rich in texture and full of depth, these pieces look wonderful set against smooth modern finishes and also layered up in more rustic interiors. And the best thing about this look is, if you are handy with some knitting needles you can actually make some of it yourself.  Start with a simple knit blanket and who knows what will happen! And if you are not the crafty type, don’t worry – we have some great resources for buying these wonderful knitted creations.
