Caravan Dreams November 27 2014, 0 Comments
A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of decorating a client's winter tent for her. She wanted to update the traditional bedouin bait shar she had and make it look modern and chic. We filled it with our striped Tokyo Dhurries to match the seating and cushions lines. We made sure to stick to the Arabian nights feel and keep the seating on the floor. We kept our brass stars and marble bowls on the floor for the snacks and food. Thanks to our client this project was a creative and fun collaborative process.
Rugs, Trays, Candle Stands, Bowls, Cushions, and Lanterns are all available online.

Fresh and Green December 18 2013, 0 Comments
The smell of fresh cut grass and pine trees are smells of two different seasons. However, both of these two distinct smells immediately wake you up. That's why the color green is special to us at ecru. It is fresh and reminds us of the beauty of nature. Whether it's the light shades of lush tropical jungles or the deep hue of mountain forests, green will immediately freshen up your home.

Royal Blue August 05 2013, 0 Comments
There is nothing like a rich color to make a space look chic. Royal blue is one of those colors. It’s that deep shade of blue that engulfs you like the waves in Hokusai’s prints.
The name of the color is rumored to have been invented by a miller in Somerset, England who won a dress making competition for the British Queen in the early 1800s. We love to use royal blue here at ecru, and we cannot wait to introduce you to different prints in this color for the upcoming fall and winter season.
Crab Floor Cushion sold at 40KD and Sophia 203 for ecru Small Lovebird Pouch sold at 30KD.

"The Octopus's Secret Wish" July 17 2013, 0 Comments
There is something quite magical about an octopus, almost otherworldly. With its fantastic tentacles moving swiftly in the deepest ends of the ocean. This mysterious creature is fascinating to us, and at ecru most of the inspiration came from the prints of octopuses in vintage storybooks and encyclopedias. It is the mystical essence of the octopus that we wanted to recreate in our fabric.

Calm Sea-Foam July 08 2013, 0 Comments
Bright colors are invigorating and fun, but at times a subtle soft hue is needed to add a sense of calmness to a space. One of these pale colors is sea-foam green, which is a wonderful shade we love to work with at ecru. Since we are captivated by the sea, we want to recreate tints that reflect the many colors of the sea.
Sea-foam has been used in our first collection and ecru will be developing similar pigments for our future collections to add a little tranquility to your home.
