Spring has officially sprung, y’all! ‘Tis the season that is dedicated to cleaning, reorganizing, and giving a face lift to spaces in your home that seem to fade into the background. Change is what keeps us rejuvenated, so maybe it’s time to consider revamping some of your interior details. Add some new wall decor, put together some new place settings, or even some window dressings.
You might not know what it is, you might not know how to pronounce it, but I am here to tell you that, if your space needs some spring sprucing, shibori might be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
It is no secret that I am a the #1 fan of a clean cut design, but adding interesting patterns to accent your space is the best way to add a personality to your space. Shibori isn’t your typical, everyday, “I-just-got-home-from-Woodstock”, tie-dye. The unique patterns that are created with this Japanese technique can bring a cleaner look to a boho inspired space. Although you can technically use all different colors in Shibori, I prefer deep blues and indigo.
From curtains, to placemats, to tablecloths, to just about anything that you can manage to dye, shibori is a fun way to add a little something extra to your space, without having to make it a focal point of your room.
If you are brave enough to try this yourself, here is DIY directions.
