d*s mini trends! [red and white]


it's been a while since i delved into the mini trends, so i definitely need to make up for the lost time. over the past few weeks (and after a trip to europe) i've been noticing a ton of red and white in the market. i noticed this in vintage textile patterns that are popping up all over, as well as in wallpaper designs at this year's icff. pillows followed and now i'm finding fantastic tableware in shops that pops with bright white and red. nothing quite says summer (or packs a punch) like a crisp red and white accessory. red might be way too bold for a main color in a home, but rich red accents can be a fantastic way to change the look of a room. they may even inspire an accent wall! so, without anymore yapping from me, here are some of the great red and white pieces i've been seeing out in the market (there's something for everyone's budget in here...) [photo above: yoko fabric for $7.99 a yard and a gorgeous print by camilla engman, $20-$30]

I love the cross medicine cabinets too. I saw the red one once at a tiny housewares boutique in the East Village on Avenue A, but I can't remember the name of it. It was near 3rd Street, if you live in NYC.

I'd love to know of a source online too!
