1. Living Etc May Issue

    A big thank you to Mary Weaver & Damon Syson at Living Etc for this great piece on Korla. Passion for Pattern...we couldn't agree more.  There was snow outside and we had to pretend like it was May. Not easy, but Alex James took great shots  and somehow made it all look light, colourful and summery despite the freezing weather...

  2. Summer Summer

    It's thrilling not to be wearing socks!  Lying in the garden all weekend I was thinking about how we should dress our homes like we dress ourselves. When the sun comes out and we store away the woolly jumpers and winter coats, couldn't we also get out the summer cushions for the sofa or even put a new blind on...

  3. Front Door

    The front door is painted. Thank you to Val and his team! After a sustained campaign for painting it pink from my 3 year old, or multicolour from my 5 year old, I was undecided.

  6. Emeralds For Ever....

    One of the most powerful things I saw last year was the "A Bigger Picture" Hockney exhibition at the Royal Academy.  Maybe it was his lush colourful depictions of the Yorkshire landscape that led Pantone to name Emerald the colour of the year for 2013... I thought I'd post up some of our favourite green inspiration, alongside Korla's extensive Emerald collection.  First...

  7. How time flies...

      It's pretty hard to imagine it's been just over a year since our official launch party. And seeing as I've left almost all the blogging to Jane, I thought a year on I should probably get to typing.  At the end of last March we gathered friends, family and some local media to have a look at this experiment...
