A study in Tinsel

The studio’s Christmas tree is dressed in red & white alpine this year and we celebrated with a suitably retro Swiss cheese fondue party last night.  Waking up at least 1kg heavier this morning…

RUN FOR THE HILLS STUDIO TREE

The studio is in full on festive mode & packing up lots of Christmas art print orders. We’re not the most popular people in the Post Office queue these days…

Dear Coffee I Love You

Lovely blog piece by Dear Coffee I Love Youabout our Siberian glass-domed coffee shop design for the specialty coffee company we’ve been interior designing for over the last year. Traveler’s Coffee are a true 3rd wave artisan coffee brand, roasting and grinding their own exclusive coffees from specialist coffee plantations and single estate farms around the world. They are growing quickly, with 76 locations in 5 countries (Russia, China, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan). We’re loving working with them on creating a suite of exciting new interior designs and we have also been working on a whole range of in-venue graphics and packaging design for them. More coming on that soon.

Milk Paint, made with…milk

I didn’t know this but apparently milk has been used as a base for paint for 1000s of years, mixed with lime and pigments to form a paint prized at the time for its tough, flat finish.

The new generation of Milk Paints have an added benefit, being environmentally friendly acrylic paints designed to be as close to the original milk paint as possible without any of the old school rigmarole. They dry to a super matt finish that has the same silky texture as an original milk paint finish. Apparently they can be cleaned with water and are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. Left matt or finished with wax or glaze.

SR Milk Paint

You can get Milk Paints in the UK in lots of different colours from Gold Leaf Supplies, who call it ‘the Furniture Paint With Soul’. Or you can find Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint on Southern Revivals.

And no, you don’t need to keep it in the fridge 🙂
