Pretty Living | Ikat Inspired

Ikat is the new chevron.

Tribal prints are having a moment right now and ikat is definitely one of my favorites.  Not only is it a fashion trend, it’s incredibly versatile for home decor.  I’ve been adding dashes of it to the our outdoor living spaces with these fun pillows and ottoman.

Ikat Ottoman

The easiest way to experiment with this pattern is with accessories.  If you’re afraid of pattern, then start out small.  Try it on a pillow, some curtains or bedding.

Here’s some more ideas and inspiration.

  • Unfortunately not, I am just too darn busy! It’s a miracle if the house gets cleaned, lol 🙂 The chair in the first photo is gorgeous.

  • I love that curtain set! I think I would have to go with a neutral pattern like that to start with, and then maybe throw some really bold pillows on the couch! We’ll see what happens this fall when we start remodeling and redecorating. 😀

  • I love Ikat print! In India, Ikat pattern was a common sight when I was growing up- in Saris, home decor and fabrics..I love this pattern – such a tale of tradition! Love the Tina Turk bedding a lot! I am not doing any home decor project except put the new curtains in the living room window – everything is ready, just need to get up and do it! You inspire me now:-)

  • So pretty! I especially love the chair in the first photo. Such a fun way to add a pop of color/pattern!

  • I’ve been after those target ikat pillows!
    Xo, Megan,

  • I love this trend! I actually just let my mom decorate my living room. Well, we bought a couple of things and then she rearranged everything in the room. I am terrible at that kind of thing so I was happy for her to help!
