I need these stripes in my life.

After Monday’s post I’ve decided to incorporate more stripes in my life.  Why not?  They’re timeless and classic.

I can’t believe I didn’t include a picture of West Elm’s Striped shower curtain in Monday ‘s post, Big Bold Stripes.  I think I’m going to have to order one in Navy or Gray for my apartment…  It also comes in yellow but I’m not really a yellow person.

I also wouldn’t mind incorporating stripes in the form of these Kate Spade wedges

I did just order this striped sweater.

I’ve always been a fan of Dash & Albert’s striped cotton rugs, especially the Yacht stripe… And you can’t beat that price!  Unfortunately, I’ve run out of places to put a rug in my tiny apartment.

Fur

Lately all this cold weather has me wishing I had a big fur blanket to cuddle up in.   Atlanta weather has been so sporadic in the last couple of weeks.  One day it will be 73 degrees and then for three days straight the high temperature is like 50.  I can’t decide whether to turn the heat on or not.  I’d love to add a little fur to my apartment somehow… Faux fur, of course :)

Ikea has some great faux fur area rugs like this Tejn rug.  It would be so nice to have one right next to the bed.  My feet would love it first thing in the morning.

If faux blankets/pillows/rugs are too much for your home, perhaps you would like to add a little faux fur to your wardrobe like Kate Moss:

I’ve always wanted to have one of these furry hats but honestly don’t think I would ever wear it.  Think what your hair would look like when you took it off!  [JCrew Toscana Shearling Trapper Hat]

LOVE the furry print on this scarf… Sorry it’s probably not available any more… From One Kings Lane.

Anthrop0logie’s Divna Fur Jacket

Or I looove their Collared Peplum coat in Yellow.  But let’s be honest, you couldn’t wear a bright coat like this too often or you would be “the girl with the yellow fur collared coat”.

I have ALWAYS wanted some furry moccasin slippers like these Dakotas from Ugg Australia.  [hint hint, Santa Claus]

That’s all the fur I have for you today!

ikat, you kat, we kat

I have been seeing ikat everywhere lately.  I’m not sure how I feel about it. It used to be mostly just in fabrics in decorating, kind of like an interior designer’s secret weapon.  Now you can find ikat prints on just about anything – clothing, dinnerware, ipad covers… I have a pair of JCrew ikat shorts that are one of my favorite pieces of clothing.  They no longer carry them so I don’t have a picture, but trust me, they’re cute!!

Anyways, I did a little shopping browsing last weekend and ikat prints were popping up everywhere in all different forms.

I spotted this super cute ikat tie on JCrew’s website.  It’s called the Selvedge Stripe Ikat tie… Would make a great father’s day present!

Ann Taylor LOFT is ALL about the ikat right now…

and the matching Marisa Ikat pants. LOFT also has ikat shorts in a few different colors.

Ikat picture frames? Yes, please.  These colorful ones are from the Well Appointed House

Or this frame from Textile Republic.  Which comes in lots of other color combinations.

Target has a lot of ikat scarves right now.  Like this Red Ikat Pareo.

I’ve always loved this ikat dinnerware from C Wonder.  Also comes in Chocolate Brown, Coral, and Navy.

Winifred Settee from Anthropologie

Mallory pointed out this green ikat Dhurrie Rug from Shades of Light because she knew I would love it.  It has two of my favorite things: ikat + green = love.

I also discovered these affordable ikat silk pillows on Pinterest.  They’re from a site called Sheherazade Home.  I’ve never heard of it or ordered from them, but they sure are pretty in the pictures!  And great prices too.
