A cottage bedroom & a white duvet cover

Fresh and clean, white offers the best backdrop for an antique dresser, hand-carved headboard, or heirloom mirror to take center stage. From shabby chic to modern farmhouse and traditional English cottage styles, white is the color of choice. It can help turn your bedroom into a peaceful oasis and allows you to switch up accessories at your whim since it goes with everything! Hang our white cotton curtains at the window, make the bed with a white duvet cover, and add a few floral or distressed accents for color.

A charming kitchen with white kitchen curtains oozes country cottage style

White curtains add a peaceful, easy feeling to any space you hang them. We especially love these white curtains in a kitchen, where they add calm contrast to the daily hustle and bustle always found in the heart of the home. They’re also great in any white-on-white kitchen since their ivy pattern provides differentiation and texture (both are which are needed in a monochromatic space).

White curtains are a wonderful way to play with light as they diffuse sunbeams into gauzy glimmers. In the evening, they reflect lamplight and brighten up a room. Our white cotton curtains give you an easy way to introduce pattern into an otherwise neutral space. Pair them with a few yellow throw pillows on the couch, or try decorating with blue and white for high style.

Mix and Match Saffron Marigold

Even though the adage is that white goes with everything, it becomes only slightly challenging when your white linens feature a print or pattern. In that regard, you’ll want to pair your white linens with solid blocks of color or with patterns that complement instead of compete. If you love the look of Ivy Lace and want to build on your collection of Saffron Marigold Indian textiles, no worries–here are some prints that will look simply beautiful with Ivy Lace.

Saffron Marigold

Gardens of Versailles

We absolutely love pairing Ivy Lace with this selection from our Versailles line. In Gardens of Versailles, silvery leaves and swirling vines in a shade of yellow similar to forsythia or goldenrod mimic the idea of the ivy vine we see in Ivy Lace. Whether you lean towards warmer colors or whether you’re looking for a shot of sunny color to pair with Ivy Lace, this one’s spot-on.

Saffron Marigold

Moonlit Taj

Moonlit Taj contains the same spirit of botanical elegance seen in Ivy Lace, which makes it an ideal partner in terms of pattern. Here, sapphire blue vines, sky blue buds, and green leaves twist across a milky white ground. The print evokes the freshness of a bright June day: blue skies, gentle drifts of white clouds, and lush grass. Try this print with Ivy Lace for a crisp and colorful look.

Saffron Marigold

English Gardens

When it comes to country cottage style, English Gardens and Ivy Lace prevail. English Gardens, rendered in blue and white, depicts bouquets of flowers you’re most likely to find in a quintessential English cottage garden. Mix the main print or its complement (Blue Willow) with Ivy Lace for a charming design, and accent with shades of lavender, rose, mint, or buttery yellow.

Saffron Marigold

Casablanca

If you love the idea of a seaside or coastal cottage–or if you just tend to crave a dash of the unexpected–try mixing in a few pieces from the Casablanca or Casablanca lines. A classic quatrefoil design in bold blues and soft greens delivers a blend of Moroccan style and whimsy to a space adorned in Ivy Lace.
