It’s official – Nate is obsessed with a good tassel and who can blame him? The allure is hard to ignore. Tassels feel luxurious and oh-so-charming – they’re the perfect example of a small detail that delivers in a BIG way. Nate even has tassel details throughout his own home (sometimes to Jeremiah’s chagrin!) but we think you’ll agree, a good tassel can go a long way.
Starting with the leather tassel garland from Nate’s newest collection (available at Target). It brings a fun new perspective to the classic design motif. It’s a little rock and roll, a little sexy, but has all the makings of an iconic piece of decor.
So we thought it would be perfect piece to enlist our crazy-talented design team to show off creative ways to decorate with tassels. No matter which area of your home you’re looking to “zhush” up, these stunning ideas have you covered. All you need is a couple tassel garlands to start…
Enliven A Gallery Wall
Is your art wall feeling a bit flat? Nothing tassels can’t fix. Drape a strand across the top of a mirror (or any artwork it won’t distract from), for an easy, hyper-noticeable upgrade.
Amp Up The Texture In Bed
If you’re the type that can’t get enough throw pillows, patterned sheets, and bedside adornments, you’ll flip for this one: why *not* hang a strand of tassels alongside the top of your headboard?
Hang It From Curtain Rods
We’re used to seeing tassels used as curtain tie-backs, but this clever twist has two strands hanging from either side of your curtains, acting as an extra framing device.
Wrap Atop A Teepee
Take your kid’s play area (or your reading nook) to the next level by wrapping the strand around the top for some design-y flair. Also known as: Instagram gold.
Dress Up An Empty Space
If the space above your bed is looking sparse, try a pair of the garlands hung to fall in an arch across wood sticks. Combining the two different widths creates a unique and textured wall hanging that makes the whole room more dynamic.
Lasso A Planter
Plants are beautiful and need no embellishment. But that’s not to say they don’t *want* any. Look how lovely and glamorous this potted tree looks with a tassel-wrapped base!
