Clairebella Ikat Pattern

We’ve long been fans of Clairebella – what’s not to love with their wide selection of products that you personalize with the pattern, colors and monogram of your choice? But we have to admit, we’re falling hard for the two new patterns they just introduced and can’t decide which we’re more smitten with: The joyful color and snappy, fresh feel of “Preppy” or the more sophisticated look of “Ikat”, inspired by textile design and taking the home decor world by storm this season. Weigh in with your choice and you might just win YOUR favorite! Vote below and to enter the giveaway, leave a comment linking to the Clairebella product that you’d most like for yourself (view the entire collection here). One lucky winner receives a choice of either a large cutting board OR a mouse pad with note cube set personalized just for you in the color and pattern you love. Giveaway ends Friday, 8/26/11 at midnight EDT and we’ll announce the winner on Monday.

Congrats to our winner Jessica C!

We love when traditional textiles get a modern makeover – blending ancient craft with contemporary sensibility. It’s a look that catches the eye, and this year ikat is turning heads in both home decor and fashion. Rendered in updated bold, bright colors and showing up in unexpected places, we’re smitten by the juxtaposition of ikat pillows and textiles popping up in all decor styles ranging from modern to eclectic. Mind, we’re not advocating a room or wardrobe full of ikat (there’s something to be said for too much of a good thing), but as a fashionable accent to update your look for the season? Inspired!
