I love this pattern, it’s cheerful and versitile! Ikat, pronounced ee-kat, is one of the oldest patterned textiles in the world. They appear in cultures as diverse as Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Guatemala, Turkey and India. Check out more on the history of this textile, which goes back thousands of years!
Here are some pretty pictures of one of my favorite patterns right now! These ikat window treatments make a big statement.
Some of the brighter Ikat patterns can be a bit expensive, so if you want a custom look for less check out this diy fabric stencil project! This bright coral Ikat pillow was created by Elizabeth Chaffee at The Mustard Ceiling and featured on one of my favorite design blogs Design Sponge. Go there to find a great tutorial on how to create this pattern in any color!

I want to lounge in this window seat and fall asleep with a book!
Do you need new beach towels? These are happy happy!
Yellow and gray, always good in my book!
I like the orange, white and brown in this bedroom!
Banquets are so cozy, I’ve always wanted one! This photo makes me crave coffee on a beautiful summer morning (alright, that’s not hard to induce!)…
