Nordic Style with a Scottish Stag – Orwell and Goode

01 Nov
Scottish based duo Orwell and Goode, certainly approach their design with fun and enthusiasm, which is evident from their website and the resulting designs and prints. The duo emerged as a result of Mrs Orwell teaching Mrs Goode how to screen print, and…. well the rest is history. The designs are a little nordic in style with a signature motif of the stag running through most pieces linking to the scottish highlands.  Really simple and fun…. let me know what you think….. but first some interesting facts about Mrs O and Mrs G.

“Mrs Orwell lives among rolling hills of the Scottish Borders,

Mrs Goode lives by the roaring sea of the Scottish Highlands

Mrs Orwell has three dogs,

Mrs Goode has none.

Mrs Orwell likes to train guide dog puppies,

Mrs Goode like[s] to train her partner to fetch (a cup of tea!).

Mrs Orwell likes colours and patterns,

Mrs Goode likes silhouettes and animals. (not spiders-ech!)

Mrs Orwell likes to make sweet things and

Mrs Goode like to eat sweet things.

Mrs Orwell knows about timing belts and tyre changing and

Mrs Goode knows about hydraulics and riveting. (Really they do!)

Mrs Orwell makes a very poor house-wife as she is a slow vac. (She is from Slovakia! She doesn’t laugh at this joke, EVER!)

Mrs Goode enjoys a good Guinness. (Guess where she is from?)

Mrs Orwell speaks funny andMrs Goode speaks even funnier.When Mrs Orwell and Mrs Goode are together, everything is funny!

Together they make beautiful things for living, dining and giving. They like to make the usual a little unusual, make the ordinary, extraordinary! And together they make everything ‘all well and good!’.”

My favourite is the stool, which is yours?  ….. meanwhile on with the colourful journey.

      Good fun aren’t they. I love it when people do not take themselves too seriously and just have fun! 🙂

      Thank you Elissa, likewise with yourself and your beautiful blog. I think life is too short to be too serious, it is funny as one of the most serious places does seem to be the world of interiors (sometimes even more so than the corporate world) and as such I love it when someone injects a little fun in what they do! 🙂
