Bonjourno, brochure fans!

Have we got a treat for you today: a sneaky peek at our new brochure, hot off the presses (literally). Or maybe that should be hot on the presses – these babies are being printed as I write…

Your faithful diarist and the other deTerra creatives have been hard at work on this project for a few months, picking our best piccies, writing some informative yet easy-to-read text, and fiddling about with various types of paper, aiming to create the Best Brochure of All Time.

Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but we’re pretty pleased with how it’s looking so far! Check out the images below to see what I mean…

Exclusive deTerra brochure preview!

Our brochure will be ready for sending in a week or two, so please don’t hesitate to email or call us if you fancy a closer look and we’ll add you to the list: we hope that this little booklet will be a handy intro into our natural kitchens, wooden worktops and all things deTerra.

Ta ta for now,

Nothing yields more joy than the simple act of giving. We’re big on that here at deTerra. And when it came to present-deciding-time, an iPad seemed like a good’un (there’s no way that these exciting gizmos are iFads).

Yep, that’s right – in case you haven’t heard, deTerra are running a ‘Win an iPad’ competition for the whole of October. All you need to do is hit our facebook page and visit the app. Clickety-click. Tappety-tap. Free iPad… what’s not to love?!

Just picture that iPad, all shiny, gleaming, glistening, perched on your bedside table/sofa/wood worktop, inside your handbag/gym-bag/any kind of bag or even in the top drawer of your oak kitchen cabinet… the opportunities to simply drool over the gorgeousness of the thing, let alone use it, are endless.

So go on, visit our page – maybe you’ll live ‘appily ever after (didya see what we did there? Because you enter via an app… and if you were to win you would be happy… nevermind.)

Good luck!

Ta ta for now,

Or should that be ‘how low’… as in ‘how-low-has-the-temperature-dropped’? We’re naturally cool here at deTerra (ha) but the team are definitely feeling the chill…

Still, we didn’t let arctic conditions stop us from doing our deTerra duty last week; in the name of research, we headed off to Birmingham for Grand Designs Live and had a good ol’ tour round this popular design show.

As ever, eco-consciousness was a big theme at this year’s Grand Designs. The Eco House was definitely a highlight, with a funky grass table being among our top things to see (though we did have a few concerns about a large amount of indoor ‘grass’ and household pets – asking for trouble?)

We were also chuffed to see an increased focus on wood and natural materials. We heart wood – and it looks like the Grand Designs team does, too! From interiors to exteriors, there was a whole world of wood; cabinets and kitchens and even whole self-contained rooms made from timber. Armadilla and Arctic Huts were two of our favourites (the latter had a cosy log cabin vibe with a massive stove surrounded by an eating bench, complete with wooden cutlery and wooden cups in handy holders), but there were many to choose from.

This year’s Grand Design lesson: timber is the tops, yo. Whether it’s rustic or new-fangled, beautiful natural products will never go out of style – and the sky’s the limit when it comes to design. If you are inspired to get timber-tastic all on your very lonesome, check out our wooden kitchens page or browse through a few stunning wood worktops – or feel free to get in touch with us, we always love to talk timber!

Update! Click here to go to our app and enter the competition!

As if you haven’t already got that ‘end-of-the week’ happy feeling, here comes good ol’ deTerra with some funky Friday news.

Yeppers, it’s time for a freebie. To share the deTerra love, we’re going to be running an awesome Facebook competition offering entrants the chance to win a groovy iPad! See, we’re not all about painted kitchens and wooden worktops – we’re totally down with the kids, yo.

It couldn’t be easier to enter: simply keep an eye on our Facebook page and follow the instructions on our easy-to-use app as prompted. The competition will run for the whole of October so there’s loads of time to get stuck in.

We’ll select a winner at random and share the lucky blighter’s name with you all. Fingers crossed… it could be you!

Ta ta for now,
