iHeart ikat!

Happy Hump Day Readers!

Today, I thought I would share a post that I wrote for Michaela's beautiful blog a little while ago.  I talked about one of my favorite trends in 2011...so far!  I've had a major obsession with ikat for some time now...and I don't think it's going anywhere anytime soon!  In fact, I'm seeing it everywhere and not just on home decor products...but in the fashion world as well!  There is something so beautiful about the bold and colorful patterns...I just can't get enough of it!  I'll show you what I mean...

 Ikat looks great as fabric on chairs...loving the chevron rug too.

 Another example in pink...

 or mustard!

What about as a fabulous print on a dress!?

These Anthro bowls are uber versatile...I want one in every color they come in!

I love ikat on the curtains and pillows...the two compliment each other perfectly, don't you think?

 Also as a tablecloth...love this idea for a party!

I love this little lamp...I think I need it!  :)

And I'm pretty sure I need this J.Crew purse...the ikat is subtle and lovely.

Ikat and succulents?  Perfection!

For those of you that know me...you also know how much I love scarves...this one is so SO pretty!

Isn't this final space stunning??  There are many things to love about this space, but certainly the ikat stool is not to be missed.

So...what do you think about ikat?  Will you be adding it into your home or wardrobe anytime soon?  I know I will!  :)
