The breathtakingly beautiful soft purple, russet, green and deep brown heather and peat moors interspersed by the soft cream of the roaming Shetland sheep. The moors sweep down to astonishingly vivid seas of turquoise and petrol blue. These are colour combinations made in heaven and have no need of any d'Erlanger and Sloan tweaking.
What could be better in these storm beaten days than to draw from and landscape that has withstood it for thousands of years. Use these incredible hues as the colour inspiration for your room, then light a fire, you will never want to leave. Snuggle under a beautiful Shetland knit and batten down the hatches. You never know, you may even be inspired to knit something yourself...
