WEEKEND AT HOME / 99

one of my favorite ways to find design inspiration is through other cultures. so much inspiring design comes from japan — wabi sabi, minimalism, and zen to name a few. shibori, a japanese dyeing technique that produces lovely intricate indigo patterns on fabric is really catching my eye lately. it’s like the classier, darker version of tie-dying, and it dates back to 8th century japan. they fold, twist, and bunch the cloth while dipping it into indigo dye to make these unique patterns. there’s something so interesting about each piece, and it pairs well with bright whites for a bold contrast. i like that each shibori piece is completely one-of-a-kind, and brings this organic, bohemian look to a room. the best part is you can make this look in your home yourself with a little DIY weekend project! – erika

    All of these spaces are stunning. I love your picks – white with a pop of blue color. I’m not a huge fan of the dyed look, but it definitely adds a lot of personality to the space.

    The colour blue and Indigo totally pops up the place. The serene white space is uplifted by the blue upholstery and I completely love it. Should try some dyed stuff to decor my home with some essence too!!

    I love indigo! Several of these look more like traditional West African (Burkina Faso, Niger, and Mali) indigo cloth than Japanese Shibori 🙂

    Those shades of blue would look great in just about any decorating scheme! It makes the home look warm and comforting and complements your furniture well. The idea is to decide if blue will be an accent color or the main color in the scheme.
