New Country Living

With a fresh, clean colour palette of soft powdered and dusted shades set against chalky whites and light natural wood, this relaxed country styling has a new contemporary feel. Traditional country elements are updated and incorporate everything required for today's modern living. Simple printed fabrics inspired by nature in restful tones combine with cosy wool plaids and knits to make this a soothing, welcoming home.

First Flush of Spring

Even though we have a light dusting of snow in the village this morning there are are signs of Spring in the garden. Tender new shoots are peeping through the soil and branches are filled with tiny buds holding the promise of blooms to come. I can think of no better way of brightening and freshening a room for Spring than with a few pots of chalky white paint and pretty linens flushed with delicate prints in blossom pink. The fabrics featured in the images below are all from the fabulous range from Peony and Sage designed by Kimberley Bell
