Scallop Patterns in Home and Fashion

by - Wednesday, April 15, 2015

Once in a while, I become obsessed with a pattern. For a long time it was chevron (just like every other design blogger!). Herringbone is also a favourite too, especially in tiles. Then there's the classic stripe which will never go out of style. More recently though, scallops are my thing.

I have been spotting this sweetly shaped pattern everywhere. From fashion to home decor, scallops add a hint of nostalgia and retro appeal.

I like how scallops are feminine without being too cutesy. I tried to buy the shorts last weekend but sadly, my size was already sold out! I bought myself the clutch (it has a cute blush pink liner!) as a consolation.

Looking around my house, I realized I already have a few scallops here and there. There's the scalloped awning I made for the playhouse under the stairs, the scalloped stitch on the 5 minute pillow, this DIY scalloped tray and of course the scalloped shingles on the doghouse. Funny what you notice when you really look.

I received this pouch from a media event for Too Fifteen recently. It's made of Tyvek which is a material that looks and feels like paper but is waterproof and durable. It needed a little something so I pulled out the scallop Frog Tape and craft paint and added a touch of whimsy. Scallops seem just right at this time of year. Swingy and fresh. And they remind me of beach waves!

What can I scallop next - a plain lampshade? A picture frame mat? A mug? Something tells me you'll be seeing more scallops around here soon.
