When Milla Jovovich suited up for an event in Tokyo, she finished her look with a smartly tied scarf, aka not a man's tie. It's a kind of literal substitution, which makes it all the more playful — a sexy finisher for a masculine look. And, just the way a guy changes up his tie to fit the suit, feel free to mix and match with menswear-inspired separates; we like it styled best with boyfriend blazers and vests for something Fall fresh.
I've been thinking about framing my Liberty of London scarf for sometime, and since the Liberty for Target housewares collection sold out in seconds, I think it's time to bite the bullet. Printed scarves, especially some of those created by international fashion houses, can truly be works of art. My father used to give my mother an Hermès scarf every year for Christmas, and I remember thinking when she tied them you couldn't see their beautiful patterns. Framing a scarf is a wonderful way to add interesting art to your home, while showcasing those sensational silks. There are a few scarves in particular, some designed by iconic artists, that would be a perfect match for your walls. Come take a look.

Don't relegate your scarf collection to a drawer in your dresser. When they're not wrapped around your neck or holding back your hair, they can do double duty as chic accents in your home. Check out these ideas for integrating them into your home decor.
Building a unique collection of artwork for your home doesn't come easily, or cheaply. Those who think liberally about what justifies "art" often have the most interesting homes. Su Casa member ckim8120, of the wonderful blog A Sweet Concoction, is a prime example of this. She took a second look at a retro scarf that didn't quite appeal to her sartorial sensibilities, but had a beautiful living room "scape" straight out of a Parisian salon, and decided to mat and frame it. It's an unusual design to begin with, so you'd be hard pressed to find anyone with the same print on the wall. And to me it looks more like a painting than a textile. On another note, how chic is that sitting room? I want to move right into it.
For me, setting the table is a little like getting dressed: I won't be caught dead wearing the same thing two days in a row. I like to switch up my dinnerware, napkin rings, glasses, table linens, and menu (of course) each day. But sometimes I tire of my tabletop "wardrobe" and sometimes it's just laundry day. When that happens, I look into my real wardrobe for some alternatives. For this little breakfast nook, I decided to use a cotton scarf as a tablecloth. It's nothing fancy, and the shape isn't perfect for a round table, but it's just breakfast! I think the houndstooth check pattern has a sort of updated Italian ristorante vibe, don't you?
The weather has finally turned chilly which has had a certain unforeseen consequence on the color of our wardrobes. You see we own a lot of black sweaters from basic boyfriend cardigans to v-neck pullovers and even full length sweater dresses. This has us feeling a little bit bland and its only two a few weeks into fall. Not wanting to spend a lot to rectify the situation we have gone on something of a scarf binge.
