Lusting after Laura Ashley
Never thought I would use the words Laura Ashley and Lust in the same sentence, but alas it’s true.
To be honest when I hear the words Laura Ashley I think of florals and matching outfits. When I was little I grew up in Manhattan and right near our apt was the South Street Seaport, which had a Laura Ashley store. I always remember seeing the matching mother/daughter outfits with the matching window treatments and wallpaper in the windows and thinking I’ll never want a thing from in there.
Eating my words now. Don’t get me wrong I’m not running out with my mom to pick out outfits, but I wouldn’t mind bringing a little Laura Ashley into my life.
Tilbury Lapis to be exact.
Used as a headboard in A Single Man the ikat fabric just oozes glam.
One of my favorite uses of this fabric is in a Domino favorite room. The room is a bit preppy, a bit modern and a bit global with the same touch of Tilbury in Lapis.
While it is a to the trade fabric I was able to find it online here for only $42.98 a yard.
I searched high and low for a look alike. While I couldn’t find an exact one this one from LS FABRICS had the same shape IKAT and similar colorings just in different places. Plus it’s only $12.98 a yard!
