KOEL Interiors: A look inside Sara Moreno’s Home

Super chunky knitted blankets, macramé magazine racks and woven tapestries… we were immediately swooned when we caught eyes of Sara Moreno’s a.k.a @fruto_samore home on Instagram. Aptly described by Sara as “eco chic or boho nordic”, her space is filled with a mix of fluffy and textural yarn accents that gives it its character. And what amazes us is that most (if not all) of the yarn accessories are made by herself!

One yarn accessory that stood out the most to us is none other than the super chunky knitted blanket. This insta-wrothy extra snug throw is hands down the easiest to decorate your home with. Simply drap it on your sofa or foot of the bed to add an instant dose of coziness to your space. Another major styling tip we picked up from Sara: choose a neural color palette for your yarn accessories. It will not only blend well with your other decor, but also serves as the great equaliser to pull together the overall look of your space.

Apart from being a mom and avid crafter, Sara is also the owner of Fruto Samore, a homemade design online store. She also shares her love for modern crafts through her blog, sharing DIY tutorials (you can learn how to make the macrame magazine rack here!) and more. So if you catch an item you fancy, you might be able to get it over at Fruto Samore.

5 Knitting Books for Modern Makers

Our editors are continously on the lookout for new knitting inspiration. So let’s discover new knitting books with ideas for beginner to pros.

Max + Herb

Some fibre businesses have been around for generations. And sometimes, a brave soul starts a new fibre business for the next generations. We were lucky to meet the wonderful, warm and inspiring Luciana Etchechoury, who very recently started her own fibre business. Luciana, a passionate Argentinian fibre artist, thought long and hard but then jumped at the chance to promote the beautiful Argentinian and Peruvian yarn and preserve their heritage with her new business she called Max + Herb.

The Bamburgh Cardigan

Head to the North East of England until your reach the land of ancient castles, historic churches and rugged moorlands, and you will arrive in fibre artist Joanne Storie's homeland. This iconic landscape (think Hogwarts) is where she creates her signature BareFaced Yarns - a perfect mix of sheep wool and baby Alpaca - that strongly reflects the rich cultural heritage of the region.

The Woven Path: Giulia Bertelli

Guilia started knitting as a means to de-stress, but slowly found it becoming a passion instead…
