Inspiration from Around the Web: Ikat

Lately, I’ve been a little obsessed with Ikat prints. If you’re not familiar, ikat is a pattern inspired by a dying technique that uses a resist dying process on yarn or fabric fibers. The really cool thing about Ikat is that it isn’t just one pattern. Rather, it’s a type of dying technique that creates types of pattern.

Here are a few of my favorite ikat inspirations this week:

Inspiration from around the Web

This week’s Inspiration from around the Web is dedicated to the fact that Andrew moves in in TWO WEEKS! Looking forward to lots of redecorating (and so much more).

June Inspiration

1.  I love patterned accent walls like this one on Apartment Therapy. I’ve wanted to make an accent wall in our hallway – thinking about a herringbone pattern in light and dark grey.

2. Really digging this metallic diamond pillow cover from West Elm, and I bet I could make it with a little fabric, paint and better sewing skills.

3. These DIY hanging planters from A Beautiful Mess are perfect for small spaces like mine. Looking forward to finding hard-to-kill plants to hang in them.

4. This IKEA bookcase on rollers from Living Well, Spending Less is a cute DIY for upgrading an office space, and it just so happens I have the same one attached to my desk.

5. We want to paint the walls in the kitchen and living areas light grey, and I’m really digging the grey Behr paint in this dining room on Knight Moves.

Inspiration from around the Web

We all pull inspiration from others, whether it’s from blogs, Pinterest, our friends or even strangers on the street. So here are a few pieces that are sparking my inspiration this week:

1. This Feline Cozy Pillow from ModCloth that I vow to sew if I ever bring home a sewing machine.

San Francisco Painting 2. This SFO Wall Art from Nordstrom would fit into my city wall decor perfectly. With the right photo, I bet I could DIY this!

Professional Fashion

3. Hello, Gorgeous’s  professional fashion is really inspiring when I’m trying to plan outfits for my new job!

Paint Chip Calendar

4. I’ve been wanting to make a paint chip calendar like this one from Maple & Magnolia.

Water Marbling
