We discovered the amazing printing projects on Finnish photographer Kreetta’s blog Gretchen Gretchen, when browsing the Remodelista blog – and fell in love.

So creative and such simple printing ideas that are so very effective in creating beautiful modern print led patterns.

Create your own fabrics from her tutorials to in turn, make into table cloths, cushions, napkins, or even curtains – the ideas are endless.

Bring the warmth and comfort of one of the colours of the year, to your home – terracotta.

It’s last rise in popularity was during the 1990s and there was possibly a fair few terracotta walls on our screens in Changing Rooms but now its had a modern relaunch and using tones of it across a room from walls to furniture to small homewares can look incredibly effective.

Using the colour as a palette across an interior will bring warmth to the room.

home: made [ printing with leaves ]

Every so often we come across a truly beautiful diy project and this from We Are Scout is no exception.

To take such a simple idea of printing with leaves and fabric paint and produce such beautiful homeware is very clever

Follow their simple tutorial and get creative. This process will produce modern organic printed fabric – it could be used for a table cloth, curtains, cushions, tea towels – the options are endless.

It would also make a lovely design for a wrapping paper.

home: trend [ textured and 3D tiling ]

There is a plethora of tiles across the high street and online to choose from to incorporate this trend into the home.

Textured and 3D tiles can add depth and interest to surfaces and create a richer look for a bathroom, kitchen, hearth or wherever you choose to use them.

These tiles can lend themselves to enhance and working alongside other trends – denim, natural finishes, geometric are just some of the trends that would work well alongside tiles that have 3D or relief designs or textured pattern or natural style finishes.

They say;

Merci is a place created in March 2009 in the heart of the historic district of Haut-Marais. Bernard and Marie-France Cohen, founders of BONPOINT the children’s fashion label, realized that Paris lacked a place which would bring together the best of the world of fashion, of design, of household goods with welcome refreshment areas.

A business established in the heart of its region and of its country, Merci has already created more than 70 permanent jobs. Merci is, moreover, very pleased to act as a developer or launch-pad to the young designers who, thanks to this sounding-board, can make themselves known to the many customers and international personalities who visit Merci.

Merci is a commercial enterprise “like any other company” founded by shareholders “unlike any other shareholders”. The founders decided that the proceeds of this investment would serve to fund an endowment paying  for educational projects and development in south-west Madagascar.
Bernard and Marie France Cohen wanted to say MERCI to life, MERCI to the talents and to the designers who made this success possible. It is this success which makes their generosity possible.

In 2013, Marie-France Cohen passed on the torch

The current Merci team has kept up the commitment and the founders’ original dream by contributing year on year to the foundation.
