nani IRO Fabrics From Japan

August 4, 2014

Hi friends, it’s Monday! A brand new week of inspiration and ideas, plans and dreams and hopefully progress! Let’s get started with a quick bite of inspiration. Are you familiar with nani IRO fabrics? These gorgeous fabrics are like paintings and really make me smile. I found out about this Japanese label designed by Naomi Ito a few years ago and have been a fan ever since. Here is a lovely photo showing her more popular patterns that I found on HI(NY) below. I have so many ideas for my home when I see these. I’m currently redecorating my work studio – I’ll show you the before and after on my blog this Autumn, so I’ve been mood boarding like a man woman! These are definitely part of my scheme.

nani IRO Fabrics From Japan

You can buy these fabrics here:
If you’re in Europe at Mondays Milk, Or buy directly from Tokyo at the etsy store of Miss Matatabi for US, Europe, etc. I just threw down a chunk ‘o change for some of these beauties from Miss Matatabi, I can’t wait to get them in my hot little hands and turn them into something pretty.

Please note: All products in this post are decor8 tested and approved.

How are you today?

    I love nani iro! Have quite a few of her designs in my fabric stash. I am excited to see what you do with it!

    Most of the stuff I have found is only thick enough for light upholstery. Would be interested in seeing if there are any thicker fabrics that would be appropriate for larger projects.

    I pinned this picture, a few days ago on my pinterest account ! it amuses me to see that the eye catches the same colors,to see that the moods and inspirations intersect. This presentation, the simplicity of the styling gives so much value at these beautiful fabrics. For me it makes me want to open my sketchbooks and play with watercolor … It’s fun to see that a same image can inspire a multitude of creative ways!

    Those fabrics are so pretty, and so Japanese! I’m a Japanese expat living in the US, and I totally feel “home” just looking at the muted pastels and the subtleness of the designs. I should start importing those fabrics to America! xx

    Gorgeous!!! :)
    I love these fabrics. They make me want to create something beautiful right now! (this would be problematic as I am at work in an office with no means of creating anything.) :)

      @Sydney – I’m thinking to frame one of my favorite prints and then maybe create a patchwork curtain with some of the others for my guest bedroom since they are so light and breezy.
