Oh Me, Oh My, Otomi

Did I mention I was in Mexico all last week? Like the WHOLE week? Imagine my surprise that the first otomi I found was at the aeropuerto on the way home. It was like the Otomi gods were playing sick little jokes on me. It's been a couple of days now and my brain particles can't shake the otomi whispers.

If you're a professional blog stalker like me, then you must be familiar with the brilliant Grace Bonney's otomi headboard. I'm sure the entire world let out a gasp in unison upon the reveal. If you have never seen this image before, then by all means, gasp away.

Grace was originally inspired by this image from Cookie Magazine from December 2005.

Here's a touch more otomi love for you:

I've been thinking I need to focus my decorating efforts (and ca$h) to my living room. Namely, my entryway. Now that otomi and I have fallen into a deep infatuation with one another, I think I shall find a spot for her in my living quarters.

To find yourself your very own otomi love, check out the eBay vendor Mexican Textiles Museum Store and Jacaranda (which is where Grace purchased her otomi fabric). 

Are you inspired? Where would you use an otomi in your house? Hanging, pillows, upholstery? Give me guidance!
