Just off the top of my head I know I have a damask pattern on two bulletin boards, a pair of curtains in my daughter’s room, the quilt on my bed, a tote bag…and I’m sure there’s more but it’s just not coming to mind at the moment.
When I took a quick look at damask patterns on Pinterest there were a few that caught my eye.
Even a tattoo labeled damask!
Can’t say I recommend it but it did catch my eye.
Beverly at Mominizer has done some amazing wall treatments using damask stencils.
So here’s my dilemma. I’ve pronounced damask one way for years! Ever since my college days studying Interior Design.
But here lately I’ve been wondering if I’m pronouncing it the right way.
(Maybe too much HGTV and listening to those amazing Canadian designers.)
I looked up the definition of damask and this was the first one I found.
According to these four definitions it could go either way!
So, the question of the day is…
How do YOU pronounce damask?
dam-usk? or da-mask?
