Large scale art can be expensive but you can create an easy and affordable art installation for your home simply by stretching a few pieces of your favorite fabric onto a canvas, like San Francisco based interior design firm Massuco Warner Miller did in the cozy living room shown above.
Start by finding an inexpensive fabric that you love and purchase about 3 yards. I recommend choosing a colorful patterned fabric like the KWID Imperial Trellis linen shown in this room. You’ll also need a few easy to find supplies which include 3 canvases from your local craft store (groups of odd numbers always looks best!), a pair of sharp craft scissors and a staple gun. Next, all you need to do is attach your fabric to the canvas using a staple gun, one side at a time, stretching it as you go around so the fabric lays taut across the canvas. After you’ve finished all three they’re ready to hang! How’s that for a bright idea?! And it’s really that easy!
