I stenciled my dining room wall in an ikat pattern. I chose grey and white as the colors. Despite how sick I've gotten of grey, I have to admit, I chose the shade of grey and the theme of grey and white for my living and dining room area because of how soothing it is to me. Not to mention I'm an incredibly fickle person. I easily tire of things and this would allow me to change out accessories, to change things up without having to repaint the entire room.
A lot of things are overdone by now and ikat is one of them. I originally chose the ikat because in the grey and white combo, it appeared feminine to me. It had a lot of graceful curves the other stencils didn't have. At least this particular ikat stencil did. And for whatever reason it too, was calming.
|Hey, I meant it when I said it was just a peek! No, I'm not keeping the light fixture. We are still under construction!|
To be honest though, I believe it's only over done in the bloggy world. I don't see ikat everywhere I go in the real world. And to be perfectly honest, I'm working on contentedness. I am so bad about wanting to change things around every 2 weeks. My mantra: It's not out of style in the real world, it's just the insane bloggy world. Breathe. You like it. You want to keep it.
