Maybe it’s the current trend for all things Seventies, but one interiors fad has really warmed the cockles.
Macramé – that old school craft trend popular three decades ago – is back with a 21st century update.
And it makes me laugh because I grew up with about three in our house that mum made in a night class. (She also made a rug with my dad – not a euphemism – which my brother and I discovered years later, subsequently found it HILARIOUS that they’d made it together and immediately dubbed it ‘the love rug,’ but that’s another story).
Kind of wish mum had kept them, but hers ended up in a Birkenhead charity shop years ago.
The new styles feature dip-dye, neon and are often hung in cluster drops, like the images above.
Anyway I love them in a retro-fabulous way.
And if you love the look but can’t quite get past the crochet aesthetic, Bloomingville at Amara have this rather fabulous hanging plant pot.
