Feeling Frilly? A Ruffle Roundup

Feeling Frilly? A Ruffle Roundup

I've never been a big ruffles kinda gal, but lately they have piqued my interest for some reason. I think if you don't go overboard and use them in a tasteful manner they could take on a carefree, flowing, slightly rustic look without making you want to gag.

My husband has always been on board with how I like to decorate, but as I've been thinking more about ruffles lately I wonder if adding them in the mix would just send him over the edge.

I've found some super girly things as well as some more masculine pieces that I think could fit in. Do you think ruffles are strictly a girls kind of decor or have you been able to successfully incorporate them into a man's world as well?

  1. This luscious, flowing duvet is available at Urban Outfitters. If you are liking the ruffle duvet look, then you will hit the jackpot over at Urban. It's a large part of their current collection.
  2. You can find this stunning chair at Aiveen Daly Upholstery & Design. Everything on their site is pretty spectacular.
  3. This pillow is a DIY by Ashley Photogrpahy. She doesn't go through the exact directions for the pillow but shows you in another project how to sew ruffles. You can find the tutorial here.
  4. This super cozy room with the ruffled bedspread really gives such a warm rustic, cuddle-in-the-bed kinda vibe. via Living Livelier.
  5. This is another to die for piece from Aiveen Daly. They take the ruffle look into a gorgeous sophisticated style. I just love them.
  6. This sweet little lamp is the kind of touch that I think could fit in nicely without being too over the top. via carrie design musings.
  7. This beautiful dining room tablecloth is brought to us by a beach cottage, life by the sea.
