The Look, The Feel of...Linens.

I seem to be gravitating towards yellow again. I just picked up an ochre yellow, velvet love seat on craigslist over the weekend (pix to come) and now I'm looking to add some more splashes of the sunny color around the apartment. I quite like this handmade cotton tablecloth from Simrin at Velocity. And, it inspired me to look around for some more fun tablecloths and linens. People don't use linens as much as I remember them doing as a kid. Then, you really set the table, and linens were traditionally almost always used. A bit old fashioned, and somewhat domestic, but nice!


Anthropologie has always got some lovely linens, in loads of pretty prints. I like this Tahitian print and Jackfruit (above) tablecloth, as well as this Springy green one called Mina (below).


I love to display my pretty dishtowels, too, all stacked up in a nice collection. Anthropologie is a great source for vintage looking beauties. I quite like these two, the Fantasia Dragonfly and the Bjorne Fruit dishtowels.


And, if you're going to go all the way old school domestic, why not deck yourself out in a playful apron? They're not just for the June Clevers of the world anymore. Here's two cute ones, the Sparkle and Recipe Box aprons, also from Anthropologie.

I'm not sure how I feel about wearing aprons, but I do love the tablecloths.

Yellow is so nice in the winter; it gives the illusion of sunshine...

You are always scoring the best finds! Ochre yellow is so hot right now; I can't wait to see your new loveseat in your already gorgeous apartment!
