pattern spy: marbled

pattern spy marbled // smitten studioNot only am I big fan of marble in the kitchen, but I love seeing it’s likeness pop up in fashion and paper goods. I just ordered this planner (I can’t wait to get my hands on it), and I am seriously contemplating that dress and that pillow. This wallpaper is pretty amazing too. How much marble is too much marble? I can’t stop!

pattern spy: handira / moroccan wedding blanket

pattern spy // Moroccan Wedding Blanket The Moroccan wedding blanket, aka Handira, is no new trend, the muted color palette, the mix of textures, and a little bit of sparkle is a winning combination that is coveted by many for their home.

Traditionally these textiles were woven by a Berber bride’s female relatives to be used and worn in a wedding ceremony and they are now often used as blankets, wall hangings, rugs, throws, and some people have made smaller pieces into pillows like above. There is no denying their influence on that sassy little mini skirt either. Happy Handira shopping.

I mean, of course I am biased but they are surely some of my favorite patterns ;), the crosses/plus signs in particular, and if you like those napkins you may be into this shirt or that pillow too!
