I Love Patterns - No Really, I Do!

This post is dedicated to a majorly SICK obsession that I have.

She can be colorful. She can be regular (but still oh-so-classy) black and white. She is curvy, and just too sexy.

What is she? Who/What is this thing that I love (that obviously must be a pattern)?

Get the LOVE photo here.

Yes, folks, damask is her name, and royal elegance and fun are her games! For some reason, I stumbled across this pattern sometime over the past year, and I don't know why I never paid her much attention before - after all, she's been around way longer than I have!

So, I decided to share some lovely damask (pronounced (dam esk - the "a" is short)) inspiration with you, and then, in a later post, I will show you how I've chosen to personally introduce this pattern into the Casa de Chicken Wing.
First and foremost, you can see the outside edges of this blog! There's a gorgeous example of damask and this blog background speaks to my essence - damask, fuschia, and diamonds - yes, yes, and yes!

How about in fashion???


Okay, you want to see some damask for the home? Absolutely - I can deliver! :)

How about a lamp? Source

A good memo board is hard to find. This one would be worth the wait! Source

Have mercy! This is a sassy chair, and it can be found at Pier 1! Source

I just died a glorious aqua-colored death over this wallpaper/chair combo! Seriously, that is absolutely gorgeous wallpaper, and I was not a fan of the "impossible to remove" stuff until I saw this photo! Source

And finally, the damask inspiration pictures that just stake you through the heart - "How would one incorporate damask into their wedding or party?," you ask. "Like this," I say.

Through a gorgeous, colorful invite! Source

Or an incredible tablescape, complete with damask runner, favor box, and menu. Source

Or one of the most stunning cake designs I've ever seen! Source

So, as you can see, once you find something you like, it's pretty easy to find inspiration in the land of the internets! :) I like to become obsessed with something, search for inspiration, let my mind run wild, and then rein myself back in and focus on whatever project comes out of it!

I can't wait until I find my next obessession! If you have any that you think I'd be interested in, please feel free to let me know! Now, you'll have to excuse me as I wipe the drool from my keyboard.

Until next time,
Miss Chicken Wing
