Pastel Power; Chairs

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

And for the second of our illus­trat­ive art col­lec­tions, here’s our pas­tel ‘Chair Stamps’ col­lec­tion…

Our A3 prints are on 100% recycled, off-white, uncoated, heavy­weight paper.

The chair images are hand-drawn by ourselves (that’s Coulson Macleod) before being turned into rub­ber stamps. Each indi­vidual chair is then hand-stamped before being digit­ised and coloured.

Avail­able pro­fes­sion­ally framed or unframed (as shown).

Best For Interiors; Baileys Home & Garden

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Now we did write a lovely blog post about our recent visit to Baileys Home & Garden, but it dis­ap­peared along with a year’s worth of posts. Groan!

Very pleased to see that Baileys won the Telegraph’s Best Small Shops in Bri­tain award for ‘Best for Interi­ors’. Totally agree. We fell in love with the place & only wish it was on our doorstep.

And our purchases…

A vin­tage shoe last, which we didn’t real­ise at the time of pur­chase, actu­ally orgin­ated from a shoe man­u­fac­turer in Ket­ter­ing. Destined for us, clearly.

A simple brown paper bag. Very Coulson Macleod.

Coulson Macleod Loves Jacqueline Morabito

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Today Coulson Macleod loves archi­tect & designer of, well, just about everything Jac­queline Mor­abito.

We love her simple design aesthetic.

In an inter­view in Saturday’s Tele­graph magazine Jac­queline is quoted as say­ing, “I am very con­cerned with the past. I like to see a house’s sed­i­ment, to see traces of the past and to reveal them. If you make a house too con­tem­por­ary all of its charms disappear.”

And this is her swoon-worthy home in Provence…

All pho­tos cour­tesy of Mar­tin Mor­rell & found via my slow design.

Coulson Macleod & Rock My Wedding

Monday, February 27th, 2012

Reg­u­lar read­ers of our blog will know that Coulson Macleod & Rock My Wed­ding have built up a great rela­tion­ship over the last three years (we both launched in 2009).

Rock My Wed­ding are just back from the National Wed­ding Show at London’s Olympia present­ing their All About The Pretty seminars.

These are the gor­geous pho­tos that we’ve taken from their blog…

Notice our ‘It’s Only Rock ‘n’ Roll’ lime­stone print?

Rock My Wed­ding were the first to see some of our brand new A3 paper prints too (they’re not even avail­able to buy yet; watch this space). Can you spot a grey ‘What Is Love?’ print?
