Decorating With The Scallop Design

Emerging as a home decor trend, the scallop design is making a big impact in a subtle way. The scallop is ornamentation derived from the shape of the scallop shell, consisting of a repeated series of arcs. They are timeless, classic, and charming and while we may banish them at times, we can't seem to forget them. So out they come again as a haute new trend in fashion and interior decor.

Since scallops are popping up everywhere these days, I have pulled together some images to give you some ideas how to incorporate this trend into your own interiors either in a cozy vintage way or a modern chic application.

Just when you thought they were old fashioned you find them in all their glory at High Point Market. The scallop design is once again trendy, just maybe in a different way.

Some of us love scallop edging and will always find an opportunity to use a bit in a subtle way.

This is my favorite way to use this design element......a soft, elegant addition that doesn't scream "look at me". It just quietly catches your attention!

I love a scalloped duvet and just purchased a cream matelasse one for myself.

This sofa proves that whenever you choose to use it, the scallop design adds ornamentation in such a gentle way.

Fish scale scallops have become popular wall treatments. It's fun to see a classic used differently.

Using a scallop edged coverlet can create a warm and cozy feel to your bedroom.

Also scalloped edging to linens makes a bedroom feel soft, romantic, and feminine and is a great alternative to layers of lace which men just don't seem to care for.

You can choose to actually use your quilts and coverlets or just fold and display in a lovely antique chest or armoire. Look for them at estate sales, antique and collectible markets, yard and thrift sales.

The scalloped design is one of those "a little can go along way" elements. Use it subtly by confining it to one statement piece.

Toss around some great embroidered scallop pillows like these from Pottery Barn. The scallop design tends to add some whimsy to a space.
