Mud cloth has the “IT” factor that is taking over the design world right now.

Mud cloth prints are EVERYWHERE right now and I can’t get enough! I have always been attracted to black and white everything, so I am so naturally drawn to this geometric and playful textile.  You can find mud cloth in a variety of colors and patterns, blues are particularly popular right now.  But, what I really love about this gorgeous material is the rich history behind it that instantaneously gives any space that “traveled feel” touch.   Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 1.46.55 PM.png

A tiny insight to me, I’m a compulsive Home Depot shopper… I mean, I can literally roam the aisles as most women do through Target. A few months ago, I bought two black plastic planters to transfer two small trees I had received from a client.  They seemed to be my sleekest options and they were self-watering, which is highly necessary for this girl!  But, I couldn’t help but look at them without feeling they were a little boring and wanted to put a personal stamp on them.  This is where the idea to do a Mud Cloth inspired design came in.  So, I went back to Home Depot and found myself a white paint pen.  Happy Dance!!  I wanted to give the planter a little height too, so I bought a small barrel mover as well.  Doesn’t hurt that it makes it easy to move the finished product around either!

This little gem has certainly perked up my front porch!  What spring projects are you into right now?  Do share, I need my next one!

You can see more details on my personal design style on my personal pinterest board.

Happy Designing !!!
