Edge of the Meadow & Contrado

 

 Customers asked to see our designs on a variety of products, so we are really proud to announce the launch of our new online store with Contrado  

London based Contrado, are a company that custom print and make high quality products on demand. Recently they came up with a fantastic idea, to create a platform for hand picked artists and designers to print their work onto a huge range of beautiful hand made products. Artists can focus on creating designs and artwork, whilst Contrado take care of production and distribution. Surely this is teamwork at it’s most efficient and a pragmatic approach to design and retail.

All products are made in the UK and most are ready in 1-2 days

A Splash of Colour From the Kitchen Sink!

At home, inspiration is always where I least expect it. This board features a series of pics I took with my i phone whilst washing up. All mundane tasks deserve a splash of colour!

Perhaps this was the catalyst for my bright tea towel prints?

Art Deco Patterns

Art Deco Pattern Inspiration from The Imperial Hotel Prague.

Art Deco Style

Art Deco Style

Criss crossing lines and clean colourful geometric shapes make striking patterns in both colour and shades of grey ( see Prague trams below )When it comes to creating new colourways, the golds, deep teals and neutrals in this nostalgic colour palette may sit well next to Pantone’s  colour of the year Marsala. I would be tempted to add some bright accents in there too!
