Straying from neutrals is hard for me but when I DO use color, I say go big or go home! At least that is the way it is in my closet. If I have a special event to dress for, it is not uncommon for me to find an accessory and work the entire outfit around it. That is how I see these fabrics. Some people might have an all white room where an Ikat or Suzani piece will make a statement and others will mix it in with lots of other prints for a more bohemian feel. Like it's own little party in a room, people will be drawn to it. Authentic Suzani textiles were often exchanged like currency or used as dowry payments in Central Asia. They were used for costumes for important events as well as decorating bridal chambers. See? I told ya...instant party!
