What is our obsession with sisal, jute, and sea grass?
The sisal in the Sand & Sisal homestead is well represented,
and thankfully, decorating trends for 2011 keep these natural fibers in the forefront.
Our homes are filled with sisal and sea grass baskets with varying colors and textures.
Rugs with combinations of sisal, jute, and sea grass adorn our floors.
Pottery Barn has earned it’s fair share from me with my 4 rugs of varying sizes.
I LOVE THEM! They clean up like no body’s business!!
Example: My little sister Beth-The Stories of A2Z flipped an ENTIRE pan of lasagna onto my dining room 9×12 PB rug,
but it cleaned up so beautifully and it today you’d never know it! (I still love her).
Sisal accessories are covering the magazine pages this season.
Ballard Designs is featuring the fuzzy jute twine pears.
I seriously considering making these pretty pears but I’m not sure I’m that patient.
Adding touches of sisal to your home adds texture and an earthy softness to a room.
A few plain lampshades received a sisal trim.
This only took ten minutes to complete and the results add a beachy feel to the room.
Well I couldn’t resist to duplicate it!
I searched the garage for an old ball (having 4 kids, I knew I’d find SOMETHING).
A wiffle will work!
I always have my sisal rope on hand, and glue guns on stand by, so the gluing began.
I started with rows of 3 but next time I’d try rows of 4, alternating in various directions.
He was finished off with a loop that was simply pushed into an open wiffle ball hole.
All materials I already had on hand so no money was spent!
He’s not going to hold any doors open but I love his chunky round self!
So I think it’s safe to say that sisal is here to stay!
Tell me about your favorite sisal, jute, or sea grass item in your home, I love to hear from you.
