Fabric Trend: Love is in the air with lace

Lace is making a comeback,  certainly after the beautiful lace that appeared on Kate’s dress at the royal wedding.  Both fashion and interior designers are finding ways to use this old-fashioned fabric in many unique ways.  Remember the lace curtains in your grandmother’s kitchen or the lace tablecloth that was pulled out and used only on special occasions and holidays?  I sure do and I also remember lace doilies on the coffee table.  Boy…I am really dating myself with that one!  Lace will add a romantic and vintage touch to your home’s decor and these pictures may just inspire you to add a little lace to your interior decorating plans.

Lace curtains can be used in any room in your home.  Add pretty lace curtains to the kitchen, nursery, master bedroom or powder room.

If you are looking for just a touch of lace, try this unique treatment from Country Living by applying a strip of lace down the center of chair cushions.  So pretty!

Love this idea of applying old lace to a solid color pillow for a truly one of a kind accent in your home.  Similar pillows can be found at tuuni.etsy.com.

And here’s those doilies I was talking about….can you think of any projects for these?  If so, please share.
