Doilies are blowing up in the design world these days. Not only is there a doily motif trend, but the crocheted mats are being used in modern and alternative ways, such as hung in frames and stitched onto bedding. But a doily's life as an ornamental napkin is not over yet. You may remember I recommended dyeing your doilies to give them a quick update. Well if you need proof from a true tastemaker, see how Eddie Ross kicked the dated look of his Salvation Army doily finds by dyeing them with charcoal Rit dye. I love how the dark doilies dress up his simple table setting and really make his white linens pop. Beautiful. Do you have any doilies lying around in need of revival?
