Pattern Love: Ikat Tribal Look & How Nia Long Relates…

 

{Elle Decor}
 Ikat patterns originated in Asia and is a style of weaving and dyeing of textiles. It gives a tribal dosage to a lot of interiors regardless of style. It’s not a new trend but it is everywhere nowadays from home decor to even fashion. I like anything ethnic looking as it makes a home feel collected over time and that the owner is well-traveled. Even if we know they went over to the local Target to get it, 🙂
When I first started seeing Ikat in home decor, I didn’t know the name of the pattern but remember seeing one of my favorite actresses, the gorgeous Nia Long in this Gucci Dress…
Remember when I posted this pic in the CHEVRON post? Well the lady who lives in this interior actually has a ton of ikat through out her home so click HERE to see it…
A neat cheap way to decorate the walls is by framing fabric like this Ikat print.  I first posted this pic HERE on my wall art inspirations post. This interior even has the beloved porcelain GARDEN STOOL. Lots more inspiration to follow…

The headboard looks like a sofa. The Ikat pillow on the bed is almost unnoticeable…
