There's a reason Pantone named Mimosa color of the year. It's just the cheerful, nurturing hue we need in this downtrodden economy. It helps our wallets too if we can have our Mimosa at a discount. The Anthropologie Climbing Dahlia Curtain ($49.95, reduced from $98) is the best of both worlds — colorful and affordable. I love the vertical pattern of its floral vines. I'm envisioning it in this already stylish home office, but it would also instantly perk up a simple kitchen. I'd love to see it paired with a soft gray, like these guest quarters by Mae Brunken. What do you think?
If you hadn't noticed that I'm obsessed with Ikat, let me wave the Ikat flag once again. Last time, it was placemats, and now I'm back with a beautiful Ikat table runner by Mimosa, who picked up the fabric when she lived in Uzbekistan. Not only is the fabric to-dye-for, but the Moroccan hand-crocheted buttons along the edges (which are found on the garments worn by men and women in Central Asia) add charm and tradition. I'd love to design a holiday table around this elegant rouge color! You like?
