Colour mixing ...and a Splash of press

Thank You Verlaine:)
If you were flicking through Home & Decor in Singapore recently you would have seen our original coastal design cushion, "Splash" staring back at you from the online shopping pages.
Thank you to Verlaine Ramos-Marquez for including EcoInspired in her feature on environmentally friendly soft furnishings available on the web.

Colour Mixing                                                                                        A pinch of this a spoonful of that....
When I have a particular colour in mind, I like to mix it the old fashioned way.....adding small amounts of colour at a time......

.... after a major arm work-out and plenty of trial and error the desired colour emerges.

Recently I've mixed this soft Dove Grey.....

and I'm loving it printed on this gorgeous linen fabric.


  1. Ah ha! so you call that colour dove grey. I was trying to find out what that colour was on etsy.

    Love your homewares by the way :)

  2. Actually the colour I was thinking of was close to the first image you have, there. What would you call that colour?

    Hmmm I can't seem to post my details below, only as a google account :(

  3. Hey Simone,
    The first colour in the photos is simply a mix of true blue ink and white. It's a lovely colour too, I agree with you. Is it like a duck egg blue?? Maybe or a soft pastel blue.

  4. Hey Karen,
    A belated congratulations on being featured in an overseas magazine! Way to go! I hope it brings you heaps of exposure and lots work.
