Check out our window display - in association with Templeton Robinson ......

Hi All

One of the things I love about Natural Calico are the lovely people we deal with - customers, suppliers and distributors alike ...... but I also love the sheer variety of work involved too ....... buying, styling the photoshoots, copywriting, blogging, marketing, designing new home pages etc etc - it certainly keeps me out of mischief !!! :)

Saturday past involved something a little bit different again for us - over the years I have had quite a bit of contact with one of the leading Estate Agents here - Templeton Robinson. And so I was delighted when they invited me to create a little window display in their High Street premises in Holywood, Co Down.

They see this as a nice way to support local businesses and also to offer a little bit of design inspiration for all those buying their dream homes !!

So it was a case of loading up the wagon with Nat Cal goodies ......

And setting up said goodies in the window .......

I thought carefully about the items that would best convey our look and style, which is essentially 'contemporary country' ....... so yes, it's all about olive trees, original artwork, gorgeous cushions and some of our beautiful Lene Bjerre rustic ceramics - aside for Brown Thomas (the Irish equivalent of Harrods), as far as I am aware, we are the only other Irish suppliers of this beautiful high end Danish make.

Meet "Martin" the hare - isn't he so endearing :) ...... this is the first of Stuart's new paintings - more coming up soon !!

Muggins adding the finishing touches .......

I love how Nicola's artwork works so beautifully with our look and style ....... and can you spot our very own branded NC candles and diffusers - they are truly luxurious - each with a very distinctive and unique perfume - more on that soon !!!

 Anyway - a huge thanks to Templeton Robinson for giving us this wonderful opportunity to display our wares.

At the start of this blog, I mentioned our lovely customers - talking of which, look what the postman has just delivered ......

This is from from one of our top customers (a charming and very stylish Interior Designer in England) - she commissioned a set of original inks by Stuart - which looked amazing btw ...... this is just one of the range - can't you just see a big bank of framed butterflies and dragonflies above a console table or sofa !! Understated but with huge impact ........

More of these original inks coming up soon ...... I love how Stuart does them on old looking parchment paper - beautifully framed, as always, by John in EPP.

Anyway - how lovely was this ....

It really did make my day and is just one of the reasons I love this business so much :)

Sláinte Everyone
