Over the Christmas break, I read (yes, 'read' which is unusual for a design book) Sibella Court's book, Etcetera - creating beautiful interiors with the things you love. I absolutely loved it! Particularly the indigo blue and rustic natural colour palette which forms the basis of our Duckcloth logo and colour scheme.

Steph Bond, who writes the fabulous blog Bondville had this quilt made for her daughter's big bed. It's turned out just beautifully! Love the red and pink combination. Many of the fabrics were sourced from Duckcloth, some have since sold out and some are beautiful prints by Kristen Doran. I also love those paper pom poms. More on those here. Hmmm, it's got me thinking about how you could make them from fabric...

I've recently added these new Ink & Spindle colourways to the store. The Lace Fans at the top is a lovely new design in black on a natural hemp and organic cotton blend. We've had the ginkgo and birch designs printed in these new colourways: a gorgeous contemporary dusty pink and very deep inky blue. I'm really pleased with how they've turned out.
I particularly love the dusty pink colourway (and I'm not a particuarly 'pink' person). I'm having a chair for my daughter's room covered in the Birch Dusty Pink and will post photos when it's done.

Well it's officially Autumn and the leaves are beginning to turn. Which of course is a nice little segway into these new leafy prints from Etsuko Furuya.
I've recently uploaded the new Echino collection to the store. These ones above are some of my favourites. This whole collection is printed on the linen/cotton basecloth which makes it very versatile.
