Lusting Over LaceApril 08, 2013
Its no secret lace is in vogue- from housewares, to jewelery, to clothing and has been for a few years now. Gilded lace accessories are really having their moment now (much like the cuff and earrings above). The first time I came across gilded lace jewelry was when we met Monika Knuttson to interview her for our blog (read the post here). These pieces are truly delicately beautiful. Ever since, I have been seeing more and more artists explore this art-from of dipping lace in gold. I feel like lace is having a revival and is no longer your grandmother's lace but a modern, edgier lace, no longer reserved for wedding dresses.
Funny enough I wanted to write a post on modernly decorated rooms with lace bedding last night. But I could not find one single photo (yes, Pinterest failed me) that fit into this category- not a one! All I could find was lace bedding in shabby chic decorated rooms, which is kind of what we are used to seeing together. But I have a gut feeling we will start seeing more lace pop-up combined in with the more contemporary design. If it does happen, you read it here first, if it doesn't, forget I mentioned it (ha! either way I win). My sweet aunt has given me some beautiful linens with lace accents that are simply spectacular and a tablecloth that is stunning. If you remember I used it to set our Christmas table, but I almost feel like I need to frame it or use it in a more special way. Let's see what I can come up with.
Anyway....as I was looking through lace related items and I noticed a lot of beautiful lace pieces either for the home or to wear that felt updated, modern, and very chic. So, I gathered some for your review. Are those ballerina's too bridal you think? Cause I think they are divine! maybe with white jeans? or am I crazy? And that white lace sweatshirt is awesome!
