Happy Monday, dear readers! This week’s edition of Pretty Things is all about burlap.
Defined Lines Scarf via Anthropologie
I’ve really been drawn to these colors lately. Well, I’ve always been drawn to coral and orange, but recently I’ve begun to love mustard yellow, as well. And it’s no secret that I have a weakness for pashminas and scarves! The threads in the warp and weave pattern on this scarf remind me of a softer, more feminine version of burlap.
Roman Shade out of a Burlap Sack via Better Homes & Gardens as seen on Red Door Home
The natural look & the rustic texture of burlap really appeals to me. I also love the fact that printed grain sacks (or coffee bags!) often have the names of other countries printed on them.
Italian Cottage via Cote Maison as seen on Style Files
In keeping with the mustard yellow and burlap theme, here’s a strikingly beautiful corner of an Italian cottage. This space as the potential to appear cold since it has stone walls and a tile floor, but so much life is brought to the space through textiles. I like the mix of fabrics on the pillows, but it’s the row of baskets which really caught my eye here.
Circle Patchwork Rug via VivaTerra
This crocheted wool rug (no longer available from VivaTerra) makes me want to make my own! The color combination here is perfect, I think. In theory I like how the circles are all different sizes, but in practice I’d find it very hard to refrain from making them all uniform!
Burlap and Twine-Wrapped Bouquet via Style Me Pretty
This is so simple and yet so striking. White blooms against the natural burlap and twine — just lovely! I really like it.
I don’t think it gets much better than this last photo. Guatemalan coffee burlap headboard? Curtains reminiscent of a gypsy caravan? Red and yellow pillows? SIGN.ME.UP.
