Ikat Fabric as Wallpaper

Thursday, December 23, 2010

I was recently introduced to a new friend who lives nearby me downtown in an amazing loft in Tribeca. She had a baby daughter last year. When she was decorating her nursery space, Lauren was inspired by this room from Elle Decor, designed by Steven Grambel.

She bought several yards of silk ikat from Uzbek Alive (Lauren mentioned the fabric arrived in an awesome package like this) and had her contractor hang the silk with regular wallpaper paste.

There was just enough scrap fabric left over for Lauren's seamstress to make a pelmet box and to trim out the crib bumper.

Isn't this amazing? I LOVE the results!
