For Summer 2016, structured and sleek décor can be pushed aside for whimsical, bohemian accents at home. Whether you’re looking to refresh your downtown condo or your rustic cottage, turn to macramé for an easygoing and surprisingly chic finishing touch. As the skies turn blue and the days become long and languid, we’ve compiled a few simple ways to decorate with this woven textile now.
Decorate your kitchen with minimalist macramé plant hangers: If you’re infused your kitchen with fresh greenery for the summertime, try suspending your favourite plants from dangling white macramé hangers. Arrange these hangers in a row over your kitchen sink, and use decorative trinkets to bring your space to life.

Furnish your neutral living room with funky macramé wall art: For an instantly serene living room, try adorning your ivory walls with hanging beige macramé décor. The quirky wall art helps to flatter the neutral paint colour, while woven baskets, a chic dark brown sofa and a black and white striped pillow wrap up the look.

Incorporate a chic macramé swing into your space: If you’re a kid at heart, try releasing your inner child this season with a handcrafted white macramé indoor swing. To decorate the rest of the room, stick to white brick walls for a truly industrial effect and add a funky printed ottoman. Meanwhile, sheer white curtains, plants and a cool structural chandelier enhance the look of the macramé décor.
