Le Lac in Blue

I know I have been talking about Le Lac a lot lately, but what can I say? It's on my mind since I am constantly referring back to it for the nursery.

I recently found it in a to-die-for blue colorway on eBay. Gorgeous!





Did I mention that when I pulled the trigger on my own Le Lac, I didn't know if I was having a girl or a boy? Well, I knew  in the sense that my intuition was screaming girl but a medical professional had not given me confirmation. So it was a tad bit of a risk...I think Le Lac can work for a boy's nursery albeit the task is a little more challenging. But in this blue colorway? Oh dear, it's perfection. And could you imagine a dining room done in this fabric??

It is not inexpensive at $1,233 for 3 yards (ouch). But it's mighty pretty.

  1. Fun Fact: Today in my English class we're reviewing some literary/rhetorical terms. You have used one of them in your post (It's not inexpensive. . .). Do you know what that's called? Thanks for the real-life example :)

  2. I love, love, love Le Lac and had no idea that it came in other colorways. Thanks for showing it off.

    P.S. Isn't that a double negative?

    1. I think you're right on the double negative :)

  3. It's called a litote--a form of understatement used for effect, often by using double negatives but not always. For example, "She's not as young as she once was = she's getting old. Sorry to geek out on your otherwise cool site.

    And LOVE the blue. I didn't find out whether we were having a boy or girl until we could see the evidence in person. Some might have objected to the fabric we chose for curtains as being too "girly," but I disagreed. With the right accents, that would be great in a baby boy's room.

  4. I was so excited to be the first to guess litote (Google makes me smart), but I was too late. And you were right about it not being inexpensive. It sure is beautiful fabric, but lord have mercy...

  7. $400/yard for a cotton? That's nuts. Super pretty, though.
