The ABC’s of window treatments
Ikat is a type of fabric that uses the Far East method of warp printing on textiles and is very popular on upholstery, draperies and pillows.
I’ve used this Ikat fabric by Robert Allen, pattern Kathandi, color Cinnabar. Another one of those projects that I wish I had taken pictures of but I didn’t.
Highland Court has beautiful Ikats as part of their Marakesh Collection. I wish I had a place to use this one.

A pink Carlton V Ikat is used on the drapery panels, chair and pillows, what a sweet room !

Another option is to use the Ikat on the walls and make coordinating window treatments and bedding in solid fabrics.
Or you could keep everything neutral and use a punch of Ikat on the rug, like this one from CB2.
My friend Sally at Divine Distractions just did a post on Ikats and she has some lovely examples if you would like to see more.
Are you a fan of Ikat ?
