So for the last week or so I’ve been spending a lot of time looking at neutral colour schemes and sleek classy pieces of furniture, which I’ve loved – however, I feel the need for a pop of colour today, and what better way to introduce this than with my all time favourite: the ikat print.
Yes ladies and gents, I’m still clinging desperately onto the ikat trend with both mitts and am very sad that it seems to be fizzling out… But I stand steadfast in my quest to incorporate it into every single thing I work on, whether or not it is appropriate, ahem.
Anyhoo, here are my picks for today, hope you likey!
There’s something about a chair back upholstered in ikat that makes my brain flip out a little at the awesomeness…
Ditto any ornate antique-looking piece jazzed up to the nines:
Ok ok, there’s only an eeny weeny bit of ikat in the LH pic here, but DO YOU SEE THAT CHEVRON BACKING on the shelving unit??!! Bonkers.
Love me a good pinboard I do…
And I’m totally obsessing over these two interesting applications:
Ikat + nailhead trim??! I DIE!
And I would never in a zillion years would have thought that lavender and peach could look so good together.
Framed ikat as artwork – l.o.v.e
And this image produces an immediate jaw-drop every single time I set eyes on it:
Or…how about using ikat in an event context? LOVE this pink/coral/turquoise jobby:
And I don’t know who the stylist was on these ones but they are clearly very talented (ahem, kidding – these are from our wedding, although now I’m wishing I’d bought more fabric and had the runners perpendicular like the two above…):
