Tips for designing with Ikat Fabrics ~ You can’t go wrong taking your color cue from an Ikat fabric pattern. So when you’re designing your room a good place to begin is with fabric. And selecting a fabric for drapery panels and or pillows using an Ikat fabric is a good choice. From there take your cue for the rooms color palette directly from the Ikat fabric.
For example our design process below.
- We first started with the Ikat pillow fabric below “Kachina” from IntentionalDesigns.com.
- Then, added solid cotton/linen draperies in fabric pattern “Snap” color Linen from http://intentionaldesigns.com that is also found in the Ikat pillow.
- Lastly, we selected the Sherwin-Williams 2018 Color of the Year Oceanside as our paint color.
