4 ways embroidered hoops complement your home decor, a blog post by Stitched Stories.

Every home tells a story of the owners’ experiences, aesthetic preferences, and current daily life.

When you mix a handmade piece (or two) of embroidered hoop-art  into your decor, you’re adding elements with unique appeal. 

Here are 4 reasons to display embroidered hoop-art on the wall or on a stand with table-top vignettes.

1. Embroidered decor adds shape and texture 

The inclusion of an embroidered hoop in your decor groupings lets you add variety with a round shape and textured elements. So often groupings are filled with squares and rectangles–and flat or smooth surfaces.

In this vignette, our Vintage Truck hoopart mixes well with a rectangular piece of word art sitting on a slice of wood. Small pumpkins in wood and rafia add texture that complements the fibers in the embroidery.

2. You can change embroidered décor seasonally

You don’t need to display all of your finished hoops all of the time. Keep them in your buffet or living room cabinet and change them out seasonally. Choose pieces that add relevant motifs and colors complement your current décor.

Here, during the Thanksgiving holiday season, you can see how I’m displaying our Harvest Table hoop art–and there’s a peek at additional hoops stored below.

Rolling Hills is a great piece to display in the summer with plants or a vase of flowers.

When there’s no holiday to be celebrated, I like displaying a piece like On The Canal along with other pieces like the pitchers, wooden trug and pie bird shown here.

4. Embroidered décor becomes an heirloom piece

An embroidered piece displayed adds heirloom crafting to your home. It’s a celebration of the handmade and the establishment of a piece that can be handed down through generations.
