the Egypt panel
Last spring at the Round Top antiques market, Cristy and I purchased a few items from one of the dealers, including a large decorative panel that he told us was from Egypt.
Mmmm, right, we thought.
Egypt. As in Egypt, Texas?
Regardless of origin, we liked it and promptly took it home without much of a plan. Later it ended up in our living room with an assortment of DIY framed batik fabrics surrounding it. I found a fabulous source for custom-sized, assembled stretcher frames. All I had to do was staple the fabric around them. Simple.
We think it works well in this large room and the geometry of the batik squares complements the panel’s own internally framed design.
A look back at the room, almost a year ago.
We think the panel-batik wall lives in harmony with our interior as it continues to evolve.
