Flavors to Follow: Damask

Since I missed out on my Flavors to Follow feature (say that 5 times fast) last Friday because I was overdosing you with my wedding pictures, I’m bringing you an extra special huge dose of dreamy damask deliciousness!  I mean, who doesn’t love damask?  If I could decorate every room in my house with damask, I would.  But my husband did not agree to it, *sigh*.  Anyhow, I’ve scoured the web and bloggyland and here are my favorite finds.

swim: santa barbara halter on downeast basics
cuff: coffee cuff on oh sweet joy!
wall: amy butler wallpaper by graham & brown seen on design*sponge
decor: cabinet seen on the ardent sparrow
hold: zipper clutch by downtown girl designs
wear: black & white damask hot pink ruched camera strap by priddy creations
background: seahorse backdrop by drop it modern
wed: damask chandelier seen on lemon sweet life
sit: reupholstery project on remodelaholic
announce: woodland damask save the date on hello! lucky
eat: five tier damask cake seen on martha stewart
sleep: headboard project seen on made by girl

Aren’t they sooo dreamy?  What do you own that has a damask pattern?  Skirt, bag, pillow, wallpaper?  Come on, you’ve got to have something!  If not, then I’ve already done your shopping for you above!

    You know I don’t think I have a single thing with a damask pattern. But I would love to have that chair!! And that wallpaper, but the husband would freak if I said wallpaper to him, he is still scarred from taking down the scary yellow paper in our dining room.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

    That cup holder is so cute! I don’t drink coffee but if I did, I’d like one of those instead of the ones you throw away. 🙂

    Wow Sandy – so glad you filled the page like that. Thanks for doing all the looking.

    I’m really digging all that wallpaper — for me it would be so immensely daring. And I adore the bathing suit. It’s very my color. I hope you have a fantastic weekend, Sandy!

    Our bedroom curtain is damask! If you had to choose damask over polka dots which would you do?

    Hi, now I know what is ‘damask’. Thought was something to do with ‘the man in the iron mask’, ha ha.
    Interesting as well really beautiful designs too.
    You have a pleasant week and keep a song in your heart, Lee.
