Rustic Décor using Hessian Fabric
The rustic, all-natural look has become popular in home decorating in recent years. Stripped back designs that showcase exposed brick and natural textures such as hessian fabric can provide a look that is not only homely, but on-trend. Not only that, this style can also be cost-effective, especially for home decorators who don't mind rummaging through yard sales and getting creative. And of course, eBay is the perfect place to find the makings of most home décor projects - it's simply a matter of seeing what's available and working out how best to make it beautiful.
Creating Rustic Charm in your Home
Art supplies such as natural burlap fabric provide an easy - and cheap - way to add interest in your home. Designers have been using it in many different ways over the years. For inspiration, all you need to do is think creatively - or check out Pinterest. What you do with it will generally depend on the rest of your décor, but hessian fabric can be used for pretty much anything, from curtains and decorative pillows, to table runners and lamps. However, it's usually better to incorporate it as an accent, rather than as a dominant theme. As natural burlap fabric is rough and itchy, it's probably not a good idea to cover the couch and floors with it.
Dyeing Hessian for an Alternative Look
If you are feeling experimental, you can opt for something other than the natural hessian look. It's easy to dye hessian yourself, which can allow you to get much more creative. You can change the colour to match your existing décor, or you could try something completely off the wall. One benefit of hessian is that it is a relatively affordable fabric, so it doesn't have to be a long-term investment. If you hate it in two months, you can change it for something else!
