Is it just me or does anyone else feel so much better now that there is a stretch in the days !!
I was soooo excited to unpack our beautiful new range of throws - I know, I think I might need to get out more :)
Anyway, these ones are hand woven in Ireland and are perfect I feel for our 'Natural Calico look' . When I met with the Company, they invited me into their huge store room cum office - ooooh, I thought I'd died and gone to heaven surrounded by all their gorgeous product - so many beautiful throws, so little time .... what's a girl to do !!!
To start off with, I thought I'd show you one of my personal favourites -
This is such a beautiful tone of soft grey - woven with blended mohair and lambswool, the texture is supersoft and luxurious.
I teamed it with our gorgeous star cushions which I'm delighted to say are finally back in stock ....
I absolutely love the wonderful sense of texture, comfort and serenity in this combo - and I also like how it would work throughout the seasons.
I should explain at this stage that because Ashley is so busy with our main work (shooting hotels, homes etc), Stuart will be increasingly working on the photography for Natural Calico - yes, that very same Stuart who does the wonderful artwork for us - what a talented fellow he is :) I am so lucky to work with two such gifted photographers.
Ashley and I happened to be shooting a fab home last week - and when I was styling the main bedroom, I couldn't resist using our new grey throw in the master bedroom.
Sooooo calm don't you think !!!
We shall be introducing more of our new range of throws shortly.
And also some new accessories ...... from the lovely emails I receive, I think our style message is starting to get across - yes, our background and tones are very neutral and calm ..... but we do like to introduce quite visual accessories to add depth and interest. For example, I love this mannequin which we have just introduced .....
It is large enough to make a statement - yet the tones are incredibly muted.
If you wander over to our shop, you will find all of these items.
On a final note, I have been genuinely touched at some of the wonderful feedback we have received - at some stage, I really must introduce a little section about 'what the customers say' - but for now, I particularly liked this recent email from Amanda who coincidentally had just bought one of the star cushions featured in this blog. Many thanks Amanda.

Hi, Thank you for the star cushion I received this morning! It is gorgeous and I especially appreciated the little soap and post card from you also. These little touches are why I love shopping with independent sellers, and your range of goods is exactly what I have been looking for! Will probably be corresponding with you again soon! Regards, Amanda x
I think that's all for now folks.
Have a lovely weekend.
PS : I shall be flying out in a few days time to meet with the Scandi Company whose stunning products I hope to introduce - guess who is one excited bunny right now :)
