We thought we’d ease into this Monday (which is rainy in Eugene and chilly in Anchorage), with some light and lovely lace. Lace can be tricky; use too much or in the wrong way and it can seem fussy, dated, or too shabby chic. But done right it can bring a romantic bohemian sweetness to a room. Let’s take a look at some examples:
This pretty portiere gives this all-white room some much needed texture and interest:
There’s no shortage of lace in this room, but with the more modern and colorful accents and the bare-bulb light fixture, it looks just right:

In this minimalist space, the lace coverlet adds much needed texture and contrast. We love it:
These next two images make a strong argument for lace in the bathroom – using thrifted tablecloths layered over a liner would be an easy way to achieve this look in real life:
Lace makes for such pretty and casual drapes. Open the windows and let the loveliness billow:
This rustic bedroom gets a sweet dose of softness from the crocheted lace bed linens.
We’re in agreement on this one: our favorite room is the second bathroom. How about you?
