When you hear the word textiles, do you even really know what that means? What was once simply interior design jargon – code for a world of custom fabric that the rest of us had no idea how to get our hands on – beautiful print making, hand-dyed high quality fabric and artisanal small batch textiles are now available to the masses! My list of favorite textile designers is long. Rebecca Atwood (of course), Eskayel, Susan Connor NY, Elworthy Studio – all of these boutique designers bring something unique to the world of fabric, be it for pillows, furniture, drapery or your walls! But I’ve recently added another favorite to my list: Made of Cloth. I’ve been following the Vermont-based line on Instagram for quite some time now. It’s easy to see why.
Whether it’s color inspiration, or sneak peeks of Made of Cloth designer Marta’s super chic home, every time Made of Cloth pops up in my feed I just want to know more. It all looks so good. I was particularly eager to see what Marta had cooked up for spring, when I spied the moodboard (below) on her Instagram feed a few weeks back.
A self-taught print designer, Marta talks a lot about how moodboards help her clarify her design direction. And even after she’s created a print that she love’s finding the perfect color match is an equally arduous challenge. It often takes multiple iterations before she finds the perfect hue to compliment and best highlight each pattern. I definitely think she’s nailed her spring collection.
Yes, even I have been caught up in the blush / mauve craze. I was immediately smitten with these earthy, warm clay-like hues. When paired with black, white and gray those warm tones feel modern and inviting I’m officially looking for something mauve to bring into our house. Quite possibly some of these pillows!
