DOS AND DON’TS
Don’t overdo the print. “Do not overwhelm an interior with the same style. Mix the techniques and also play with colours,” says Manuu Mansheet, director of Mansheet Design. Place solid furniture or a graphic element or art piece against a wall with a shibori print. It will highlight the work and make it look dramatic. “While using a shibori curtain, keep the length as long as you can to create an illusion of fluidity in design,” says Manish Bhatia, president of the building products division and CEO of EVOK Retail at HSIL. Consider using an ottoman covered with shibori fabric instead of just a plain one in the living room.
