Lace Isn’t Just for Your Fabrics!

A classic look that’s been around for ages, lace continues to be one of our all-time favorite details in home decor.  From classic fabrics to printed detailing, we want to show you some of our favorite inspired decor!

 

It doesn’t get more traditional than a doily… but what about on a rug?  We LOVE this twist on a classic look!

If you love the look of lace, but can’t find the right place for a fabric so delicate, try some options that capture its style without having to worry about its maintenance!  What do you think about an accent wall like this?  We love it!

If you’re frantically worrying about spills on your beautiful table linens, boy have we got the thing for you.  Famous for their durability, Chilewich lacey metallic placemats can be cleaned with a quick and easy wipe.

I’m a huge fan of white dinnerware because of how nicely it complements food.  If plain white is too simple for you, lace-inspired borders add an elegant touch to your table without breaking your color scheme!

Does lace feel too traditional for your style?  We love how Wisteria proves you can mix and match lace with metals!

A Vintage Affair

February in Boston is never my favorite time of year, and this year it’s even less.  With over 3 feet of snow on the ground and another foot forecast for the weekend, I’m trying my best to find something redeemable about the time of year.  Next week is Valentine’s Day and a good excuse to get out of the winter doldrums and spruce things up.

Valentine’s Day decor always brings me back to my vintage china and tablecloths.  I find myself pulling out my grandmother’s china cups and lace doilies, and doing a lot more “layering” and “cozying up” with nostalgic items than I do any other time of the year.  This year it’s been especially fun because my daughter, Jillian, has chosen a “vintage” theme for her September wedding.  So, with everything I’m pulling out of the hope chest I’m thinking of wedding bells.   Here are some vintage inspirations that just take me back in time to a quieter place and space.  Maybe they will inspire you for Valentine’s Day, or to just slow down a little and take a trip back in time for your next winter event!  Enjoy!
