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!
