I mentioned in my last post that I've been really drawn to plaid lately.
Over the holiday break, I found myself revisiting some of my all-time favorite designers and spaces. Betsy Burnham was definitely one of my first major influences, and her spaces have stood the test of time - something else I've been paying more attention to lately. In this social media-saturated world we live in, so many fads and trends and inspiration pass in front of us…and as much as I partake and sometimes love this access to the creative world, I also find myself needing to dig a little deeper, as well as taking note of really good design that lasts.
While soaking up images new and old from some of my favorites, I noticed a trend across some of Burnham Design's work…a hit of plaid! I love it. Over the holidays it's known to show up quite a bit (and I used plenty as well), but I started to think about incorporating it beyond Christmas decor. Just a small dose can result the perfect mix, taking a fresh/young space into one that's pretty timeless, if you ask me.
Although I wanted to use this plaid fabric during the holidays seasons, I just didn't get around to it. But, I'm happy to say I finally got around to covering a lampshade and it's working just fine in January. :) This was my first stab at covering a lampshade, and it's not perfect…but honestly, the wrinkles don't show all that much, and I'm happy with it. I just know I'm going to love moving it from room to room for some great mixes.
