Burlap Perhaps



I'm seeing burlap everywhere right now, and I'm really loving the laid-back style and rustic charm of this super accessible and affordable fabric. I found this great burlap lampshade at BallardDesigns.com for $49. Ballard Designs also offers up burlap bedskirts, tote bags and table cloths. Also, go to Etsy.com and search "burlap pillows" for a huge selection of stylish stamped burlap pillow covers and pre-stuffed pillows. I love this red-stamped pillow cover for $50.

Feeling crafty? Burlap is only about $4 per yard at your local fabric store and comes in a variety of earth-tone colors. I've used it as a Christmas tree skirt, table runner and even thrown it over a side table. Get creative and send me your pics!

I'll be in both New York and Boston this coming week. In Boston, I'll be checking out the beautifully eco-friendly 2010 HGTV Green Home. Be sure to check back for updates and ideas!
