I don’t know you but I have been obsessed with the TV series Daisy Jones and the Six. I read the book by Taylor Jenkins Reid last summer in 3 days and I was super excited about seeing one of my favourite books of 2022 on screen.
What I loved was seeing the styling of the interiors!
Having a background in Interior Design just made me envy the set stylist! An overdose of macrame and boho-inspired home decor!! A dream!
As we know the 70s interior style has been making a comeback in the past 7-10 years, with many people embracing the warm, earthy tones and bohemian aesthetic of the era. Daisy Jones and the Six provides the perfect inspiration for creating a retro-inspired interior design. Macrame is the most popular home accessory in the series, which adds texture and interest in rooms, buses/campers and outdoor spaces.
Macrame Wall Hangings
One of the most iconic macrame home accessories of the 70s is the wall hanging. Modern macrame is made with natural materials, mostly cotton- I try to use only 100% recycled fibres and features intricate knotwork and fringe. They were popular for adding a cosy, bohemian vibe to any room, and they’re still a great way to incorporate the 70s style into your home today.
To create your own macrame wall hanging, you can join one of my face-to-face workshops or check out my signature online course suitable for beginners ‘Become a Confident macrame artist’ HERE.
Once you’ve created your wall hanging, it can be hung in a living room, bedroom, or even in a bathroom to add some texture to the space. In the summer or if you live in a hot country, it can be used outdoors too.
Macrame Plant Hangers
Another popular macrame accessory from the 70s is the classic plant hanger. It was so popular that it was taught a school too. These were often used to display hanging plants in macrame holders, adding a natural, earthy element to any room. You can find plant hangers in a variety of styles, from simple designs to more intricate, multi-tiered ones.
To make your own online macrame plant hanger you can check this free tutorial I created for Gathered here.
Once you’ve made your hanger, you can hang it in a sunny window or a ceiling hook to add some greenery to your space.
Macrame Wedding Backdrop
Macrame wedding backdrops have become increasingly popular in recent years, as more and more couples embrace the bohemian style for their big day. These handcrafted pieces can add a unique and personalized touch to any wedding ceremony or reception.
A macrame wedding backdrop can serve as a stunning focal point for your ceremony or reception, adding texture and interest to the space. You can decorate it with fresh flowers, greenery, or even hanging LED tea light candles to create a romantic atmosphere.
If you’re planning a DIY wedding, creating your own macrame backdrop can be a fun and rewarding project. In my book ‘Macrame for the modern home’ you can find the tutorial for a large macrame wall hanging as well as a smaller macrame wall hanging that can be used as a chair back for the bride and groom.
Once you’ve created your backdrop, it can be hung behind your ceremony altar or even behind the cake table at the reception.
Alternatively, if you prefer to leave the crafting to the professionals, feel free to drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will be honoured to create a unique piece for your special day.
Incorporating a macrame wedding backdrop into your big day can add a beautiful and unique touch to your ceremony or reception. Whether you’re going for a bohemian or minimalist look, a macrame backdrop can be customized to fit your style and create a memorable backdrop for your special day.

The 70s interior style has a lot to offer when it comes to creating a cozy, bohemian atmosphere in your home. Whether you’re a fan of macrame accessories, bohemian textiles, or both, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this retro-inspired style into your decor.
If you’re a fan of the TV series Daisy Jones and the Six, take some inspiration from the show’s 70s style and create a space that feels warm, inviting, and bohemian.
