Fun Ideas for Decorating with African Mud Cloths


We love versatility around Studio 512, especially when it comes to interiors. Then, your home’s look can change with your mood. Allison Crawford of Allison Crawford Design stopped by with one piece that can be used many ways. African mud cloths are beautiful and can be used in various ways in your home –  as a table runner, as a blanket, or can be made into pillows. The ones Allison brought in had patterns specific to the artisans’s villages and stories. To create the perfect look with mud cloth pillows, the key is to use them in odd numbers and be mindful of combining patterns. For instance, we used five pillows on our couch in varying sizes of patterns to balance the overall look. Some pillows were more solid while other’s were more busy. To see more of Allison’s services which include interior design, new construction, remodeling and E-Design go to provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
