You don’t have to be Madonna circa 1984 to have fun with lace.
Nor do you have to be Kate Middleton — but her gorgeous wedding gown certainly helped inspire the ladylike lace trend in fashion.

And like all good trends, home design has taken a cue from the runway. Welcome to the age of lace.
I know, I know. It’s too much for many of you — I’m a girlie girl and sometimes I turn my nose up at anything overly lacy.
But if done right, the effect of lace gives a room some softness and a layer of personality.

And some lace designs are really edgy. I love these crochet-inspired nesting stools.

And even though I’m not usually a wallpaper person (don’t even get me started on how difficult it has been to remove all the 1950s-era wallpaper in my home), this lace-inspired wallpaper is gorgeous. It would be perfect for an over-the-top powder room.

I promise, though, that this officially ends my grandmother-inspired posts! After last week’s Milk Glass post, and now this, some of you might be wondering about me!
But I will find these new Toms that just came out — and promptly sold out. These natural crochet Toms scream summer — and I apparently missed the boat.
