A few month’s ago, D decided he wanted his own workspace, so we converted the playroom for him, and I’ve been putting together a few finishing touches. He sourced the main furniture he wanted (sofabed/desk/TV unit – all made.com), but it just needed a little pulling together…
I have to admit to having had quite a heavy sway in the colour scheme, which was based originally on the Eames style chair – a spare from D’s office. I was particularly keen on the idea of an orange fan, so I painted the blades of a cheap & cheerful from the heat of last summer, and I think it turned out OK.
The perfect finishing touch was the ‘follow’ print from emerybloom, which really pulled it all together. Aside from the colours, there was something that drew me to the graphic style & geometric shapes of this print, and reminded me of D’s early design days. I then discovered that Gareth studied his degree at Falmouth, same as D – funny how the smallest details can make such a difference in how we see and relate to things don’t you think?
So, let me introduce you…emerybloom is the offline outet of graphic designer & art director, Gareth Emery. Allowing him to work purely with print, each piece of emerybloom artwork is created by either himself, or his wife (My Hedblom (the name is a combination of his & her surname)), or family. With a dedication to a green & sustainable future, all works are printed on high quality, locally sourced, 100% cotton paper using eco friendly inks & recycled packaging. You can find out more here, or view the collection here.
