Otomi Textiles: The Hot New Home Decorating Trend That Can Brighten Any Room

by Gabrielle Blair on November 16, 2012 at 8:00 AM

I've been a little bit obsessed lately with Otomi textiles. I can't help but love their vibrant colors and bold animal and floral prints. The Otomi people help support themselves with the proceeds from the sale of their designs, which kind of makes me love them even more.

Click through to see what I'm talking about.

This gorgeous Otomi lampshade adds such a bright pop of color and pattern to this otherwise quiet space.  

Grace Bonny's DIY upholstered headboard is kind of legendary by now. I still think it's absolutely to die for thanks in large part to that bold red Otomi fabric. 

Love the vibrant turquoise pattern on this lampshade. 

I love the lines of this chair in contrast with that statement Otomi fabric. The muted colors are the cherry on top. 

Would you ever consider a large Otomi throw like this one? I think it really makes a statement in an otherwise simply decorated room.  

They had me at this color -- and the gorgeous pattern doesn't hurt either!

Are you feeling these Otomi textiles as much as I am, or are these bold colors and patterns a little much for your taste?
