On the process of building their home, Vivian said, “The construction only took about one and half years, but the house site and design decisions took much longer. In the meantime, we sold our [previous] home in Oxford, MS and renovated the basement of the home already on the property, into an apartment and lived onsite while we developed our ideas for our home. The gallery apartment now serves as guest quarters and an Airbnb location. We finally settled on the old homestead site, but first had to remove dilapidated tenant shacks… Near the house is an old well that was hand dug by the first family on this property. One of the previous homeowners visits on occasion, and recently we learned he was a 12-year-old boy when he helped his grandfather hand dig the 30-foot well.”
One of the things that makes family heirlooms so special are the stories they collect over time. Objects give us the ability to recall adventures that have been told and retold, or spark the memory they carry. Cherished items often cross oceans, countries, and generations to create their stories, probably with a few scratches and bumps along the way. It’s as if these treasures traveled down the branches of our family tree and ended up in our living rooms.
Maybe it’s the way they drape or the texture they add to a space, but hanging elements seem to be having a major moment in design right now. Whether it’s the revived 70s-chic look of macrame and woven wall hangings, dramatic hanging plants or artfully conceived backdrops (see below), hanging décor has made its way into almost every home tour we’ve run for the past year. For me, hanging décor provides multiple design solutions at once: it offers texture and color, it can add depth and sound proofing, and it can fill awkward spaces (especially in corners) by being suspended in the air. So today I’m taking a look at 20 incredible examples of hanging décor that have inspired me to rethink my “living with empty walls” mantra for this year. Hopefully these rooms can provide some clever DIY solutions for spring and summer decorating. xo, grace
