Pattern Play - Seeing Stripes

If you've been reading for a little while, you may remember my loft space design board that I put together for my Layout & Design class. I used this Christopher Farr Cloth fabric as inspiration.


And then I came across the same fabric in the ecru color way.



How pretty are the blues, grey, minty green, and khaki all put together - I think it's so fresh. Does it make you think nautical? It made me think beachy, so I put together two different looks...


I tried to pull in some texture in both looks. I love the vibrancy of the punchy look, but there is something so pretty and soothing about that minty green color. I really went out on a limb mixing that Kelly Wearstler fabric with a buffalo check but I think the mix is kind of fun. (PS - the buffalo check fabric is on sale at Calico Corners for $15.99/yard!)

  1. The minty combination is my favorite, but I still love an ikat, too!

  5. Wow, that stripe is gorgeous! I loved the khaki when you first posted, but I think I'm even more in love with the blue!

  6. Ohh, I really love the ecru stripe. So pretty and I would prefer the punchy mix. I could see the whole mix on my deck!

  7. The ecru colorway definitely says "beachy" and the texture is more apparent (perhaps because of the lighting). I definitely think the punch of color is a must and keeps it interesting, fun, summer-like, cool, and so on.

  8. I like them both, this one's a toss up for me! I would be happy with either combo:)

    So glad you saw the new MBM post!! I thought of you when I picked the Bucks County photographer...that photo was one of the first things I ever pinned...almost a year ago! I would love to own some of his work, I think a photo or two would make a good Christmas present for my parents next year:)
