Endless Blue March 13 2013, 0 Comments
There’s nothing like a bright blue sky once the sun shines and clears out a dark storm. That perfect smell of clean air all around you feels like a never ending dream. Sitting on the grass looking up at the majesty of the sky, or lying on the sand while taking in the different shades of blue the sky creates as it touches the sea.
And Since ecru’s leading collection is ‘By The Sea’, it’s only natural for us to be inspired to use different shades of blue in our prints and products. Ultimately creating a sense of calmness and coolness in your home during the long hot summer.

Comforting Grey February 11 2013, 0 Comments
There's something calming about the color grey. It evokes a certain kind of romance, especially when it's raining outside and all you want to do is cuddle on your couch with that perfect someone or that perfect cup fo tea.
ecru uses it's signature chinchilla grey to create a sense of comfort. A perfect neutral that is flattering with any bright color, and we love to pair it with our lemon-drop yellow to make it pop. One of the ways we combine these colors organically is by creating a grey lantern. Once you turn on the light the flash of yellow illuminates through the grey, achieving the ultimate sense of serenity.

Welcome to our Dream World January 08 2013, 0 Comments
ecru is a lifestyle more than a product.
It's appreciating discreet scents from the jasmine bush that linger outside your door.
Connecting with the artisan responsible for your intricate cotton dhurrie. Allowing the vibrant color of your block printed table cloth to lift your mood. Instinctively rubbing a cashmere throw between your fingers whenever you pass by it. Losing yourself in your freshly laundered towels. ecru is remembering to enjoy the simple luxuries of your home.
We hope you love it, just as much as we love creating it.
