Fresh thinking

Check out Kiran Ravilious, www.kiranravilious.com we think her fresh thinking designs rock!

Inspired by a book on hand-printing and nature, she produces hand-carved lino designs for printing onto cushion covers and lampshades plus fabrics and wallpaper. We love them and will be keeping a close eye on her future collections.

Hello Spring!

We can't speak for everyone but here at EC & Co we're super excited to see (at long last!) some signs of Spring; sunshine and cherry blossom, two of our most favourite things. We don't want to complain too much but it's about time you showed up!!

So send Winter packing for another year and kick start your Springtime home interior ideas. Here's a few for starters:

1) Fill your home with fresh flowers - a great way to add some additional accent colour

2) Introduce seasonal colours in simple ways e.g. refresh sofa cushions or bedlinen with fresh green or yellow tones...

3) Let the declutter begin (and make a few bob at your local car boot sale at the same time!)

4) Maximise light coming into your room by investing in some stylish curtain tiebacks

5) Replace curtains with roman blinds for a simplier, more contemporary look

Happy planning and doing!

A celebration of Design at Decorex International

Well another year certainly does come around quickly, doesn't it? It feels like only a matter of months since we were in London, at The Royal Hospital Chelsea, visiting last years Decorex International interior design show.

A year on, a year wiser and proud to be showing off our own newly designed look, we'll be eager to talk to new suppliers, listen in on some of the interesting seminar programme discussions and more importantly enjoy a glass of bubbles to help celebrate 35 years of Design at Decorex. You'll find us (between stops!), at the aptly named 'champagne bar' fabulously designed by Rabih Hage!

Introducing our brand new look!

To celebrate 18 months of trading, since launching the business in 2011, we've decided to give ourself a brand new look and update our website (coming soon!).  

We're loving the simplicity of our new logo and think the combination of a classic typeface and contemporary colourways work in perfect harmony. Afterall, we are in the business of making things work well together!! 

We'd love to hear what you think, so please do get in touch via our Blog, or Facebook at Edinburgh Curtains & Co or Twitter @ecandco
