1. Love those Chevron dresser drawers and rug!

  2. I’m not usually one for wallpaper, but I love it in that asuka color and print!

  3. Three great patterns that I still love too. Do you think chevron and ikat are on their way to becoming classic patterns now? They’ve maintained their popularity for so long now, when I thought for sure they’d fade away!

  4. I didn’t even know these patterns had names! Well, I guess I probably knew they had names but had no idea what they were. I have to admit that I’m a chevron addict myself (blog background and everything), but it’s cool to see someone talking about another pattern.

  5. I love the asuka wallpaper, but had no idea the pattern was called that! Thanks for teaching me something new! Great post!

  6. Ikat is practically an obsession for me these days. In fact, I’m wearing an Ikat shirt as I type this!
