INTERIORS

ROPES AND DREAMS. Who would have thought that rope could look so effective? 


Morgan from the brick house certainly did. I just can't get over how good it looks. 


 She was faced with the challenge of creating zones in a large warehouse that was to be used as an upholstery workshop/ teaching space/ office.


 Her cost effective and beautiful solution was to create these rope walls, which allow both light to filter through the whole area and the feeling of space to remain. 


This is one of those ideas that I will keep in the back of mind until I find some way to incorporate it in my life. Right now I am thinking of making a room divider with coloured wool, it would be a lot more delicate then rope and if I ever actually do this, could quite possibly be amazing. 


The wool installation of my dreams would be like the above picture (which is a photo of an image on a computer screen - not sure what site) but on a much larger scale. 

UPDATE 19/5:
Look what I found..... similar idea but made of colourful RIBBON.
