Are Printed Tapestries Just For Dorms?

Are Printed Tapestries Just For Dorms?

Q: I've been on the hunt for a long time for a piece of oversize wall art to fill the big, empty space above my couch. So far price and indecision have kept me from taking the plunge but I've been looking recently at some printed fabric wall hangings like these from Society6. My question is, do things like this just belong in a dorm? Or could it be possible to use it effectively in a more adult space? The big size and affordable price makes it really tempting but I'm wary. -Sent by Faye

Editor: Oh, man, I'm so tempted to include photos of every printed wall hanging ever featured in one of our house tours, but I suppose I should just let your fellow readers offer their opinions. (But in case you're curious, check out this one, this one, and ooh, this one is from Society6!) Readers, what's the verdict on tapestries? Are they, like, Trix, just for kids?
