The Ikat Fabric look in Interior Design

Ikat Fabrics

Ikat fabric

Ikats have been around for several centuries. It is rare when something that was developed so long ago becomes so popular in modern times. The word “ikat” means “to tie” or “to bind”. This describes the process and also the fabric itself.

Even though, many of today’s Ikats may not be “true” in the sense of how the fabric is constructed, the pattern lives on and is easily recognized when used as a pattern in interior design.

In this day and age where everything seems to be focused on the next “big thing” or the new trend, the ikat will always be regarded as a classic and timeless element of design.

Here some beautiful furniture pieces and pillows by Madeline Weinrib  with her signature Ikat design fabrics:

There are no limits to ways of using Ikat beautiful fabrics as they come is various patterns and colors. Ikat fabric always adds an elegant cheerful touch to a design or suggests far away travels and create a beautiful focal point in any room.

The “paisley” look in design

Beautiful paisley bedding

Beautiful paisley bedding

Paisley or Paisley pattern is a droplet-shaped vegetable motif of Indian and Persian origin, similar to half of the Yin & Yang symbol. The pattern is sometimes called “Persian pickles” by American traditionalists, especially quiltmakers, or “Welsh pears” in Welsh textiles as far back as 1888.

Today paisley design patterns are used from whole walls to small accent to create harmonious interiors.

The Glamorous look of Black and White Room Designs!

Black and White living room

The use of Black and White in design can create a stunning and dramatic decor.

There’s a rule in decorating that says that “every room can use a touch of black.” You might think this is strange if you have a room of pastels or jewel tones.  But using the color black adds a focal point of color that grounds, anchors, and adds a sophisticated look to a room.

Black in accessories, light fixtures, trims, paint, or in one bold piece of furniture will help to catch the eye and sharpen any decorating scheme. It will serve as an outline that sets off specific areas or objects. Black by itself is striking!

But to get real drama and spark, pair black with white.

The use of black and white in design gives a fresh, clean, and unquestionably sophisticated and elegant look to any room.

If you’re afraid of using just black and white, add variety by adding areas of yellow, pink, camel, red, turquoise or purple for a striking look. Keeping black and white prominent, however, preserves the elegant effect.

Here are examples of stunning rooms designed with a Black and White theme.
