design favorite — ticking stripe

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had a mild obsession with ticking stripe. Originally limited to utilitarian use — mattresses, aprons, tents — this humble and hardworking fabric rightfully took its decorative place some years ago. Here are some of my favorite ticking stripe looks for the home, in the traditional heavyweight cotton, as well as lighter weight linen.
