My Crochet Home: Around the Fireplace

I thought I’d share a look at the fireplace in my living room because it’s surrounded by crochet. Here are some of the details:

Above the fireplace: crochet art on canvas

On the mantle: Solomon’s Knot crochet decoration (originally a shawl)

Also on the mantle: yarn! It’s in glass and metal containers, loosely sorted by color. The one bucket also has some hyperbolic crochet hanging out of it.

On the floor: framed crochet art and vintage crochet books

What would you change about my crochet-adorned fireplace if it were in your home?

  1. I wouldn’t change anything about your fireplace – everything is so nicely displayed. Have a good day. :)

  2. It looks so personal, so I wouldn’t change anything. I agree with Debi:)

  3. Yoor fireplace looks “easily grabbable,” as in if I were standing in front of it I’d want to reach out and grab something to enjoy its plushy softness with my hands. :) That said, I’m more a fan of asymmetrical balance, so if this were in my living room, I’d push the taller artwork to one side, and fill the other side with the vessels of varying heights going from tallest near the outside and shorter vessels toward the center of the mantle, like they were spilling outward, and keep the yarns in those vessels. I love that you keep it out like that so it’s always in line of sight. You can live with it all the time, and it’s always there for inspiration. Mine’s all organized away within an inch of its life, and while Martha Stewart would be proud, it isn’t as fun and liveable as storing it on the mantle like you’ve done.
