Crazy for Ikat
I am always hesitant to use trendy patterns in my decor in case I tire of it quickly and waste my money. I think Ikat is super trendy right now, but I am still crazy for it! I have tried to resist the print thinking I will soon be over the look, but I just think its bold design is just perfect for summer.
Just an hint of Ikat in a room may be a safe solution, rather than huge commitment piece like a sofa or custom drapes. Here are a few things I am in ideas I am liking.
This roman blind is the perfect place to add a trendy pattern. Its single window takes away the commitment that a room full of windows needing traditional drapes would require. Kitchens and bathrooms are the perfect place for roman blinds.
An Ikat ottoman works wonders in adding a little interest to a very neutral room:
Throw pillows are my favorite way to switch things up in the house. If I were single right now this would be my pillow of choice, paired with white bedding (I’m pretty sure Brad would veto the amazing hot pink back):
Here, Ikat table runners make this tablescape fantastic. Using a trendy pattern on your dining table or hung as a panel on the wall would be a fun alternative to changing throw pillows. Wouldn’t you just love to throw a summer party full of color like this?:
What do you think? Are you over Ikat or still lovin’ it?
