Next Project: Texture

craftsman 2

I find these images from Handcrafted Modern, by Leslie Williamson, so soothing to look at. I really love the variety of texture within a neutral palette, which keeps the rooms looking cozy and sleek instead of boring.

This is just the kind of inspiration I need for my next home project: For a while now I've been wanting to repurpose an Irish sweater into a pillow. The sweater is lovely piece of knitwear from the Aran Islands - it also makes me look like the Michelan Man. If I don't completely unravel the knit, this is a nice way to keep a lovely, well crafted souvenir and add some lovely texture to my home.

I'm thinking it will look something like the picture below.
