Mother Nature Knows Best


Evening All

If you wander over to our latest home page, you might spot something a little different amidst the main images - basically what I'd love to do from here on in is to show how we can draw inspiration from Mother Nature when styling our homes.

With a name like Natural Calico, I guess it's pretty obvious that we're all about natural colours, tones and textures here.

I love to go for long walks and just admire the stunning colours and elements that are all around us. These well worn little boots may not be the prettiest of footwear but they do at least prove that I do indeed walk loads ......  we are so lucky to have some beautiful scenery here right on our doorstep - and yes, ok then, I admit it - I did stop for a wee bar of chocolate when I took this picture :) 

Anyway, with each new home page, I'm hoping to include one that is 'organic' and simply showing that no one does it better than Mother Nature when it comes to mixing a perfect palette!!

We have now begun to introduce our new range of gorgeous autumn/winter throws and cushions ... if you meander over to our shop you will see for example :-

Super cosy pure wool throw

Gorgeous natural herringbone cushion

Herringbone Cushion

Beautiful large window pane throw - soooo cosy

Chic pinstripe cushion in lovely Merino wool

Striking embossed cushion - it's all in the detail!

Soft pure new wool cream and charcoal throw

I think/hope Mother Nature would approve :)

On a different note, I would love to introduce you to my new email chum Jackie over at the wonderful Biba Home Blog. I'm a real newcomer to the world of blogging but I'm already enjoying the lovely sense of community that's involved. Jackie's blog is a real 'visual feast' where she talks about all things stylish - from fashion to travel, interiors, and even Downton Abbey !! She and I have already discovered a mutual passion for Downton btw along with "wonky cardys" from All Saints :) She has very kindly done a lovely blog about Natural Calico. Why not wander over to her beautiful blog site - if you hanker after a touch of Scandi and French styling, you will love it !! link here:

Have a great week
