i {heart} ikat ::

the perfect fabric can absolutely make or break a room!  so when i met with one of my fabulous clients last week to look at fabrics for her great room, my focus was on the colors we discussed … rich magenta, bold orange, stunning gold!  i thought i had found the perfect fabric to tie all these colors together – a gorgeous ikat with our colors plus a punch of plum, but when my client saw the ikat, she gave that fabric an immediate thumbs down {luckily, i had more in my stack that made the cut}!  it really made me think about the ikat pattern – many people, especially in the midwest, shy away from the trendy, bold, colorful print or tend to think that it looks like a southwestern print from the ’90s.  not so, dear decoraholics!

i think the problem is that it can be difficult for someone not used to this bright, bold pattern to visualize how an ikat can bring fun and sophistication into a room among other patterns and colors.  so here you are … a few of my favorite ways to be the trendsetter on your block with ikat!
