Annual holidays

Dear readers,
After a busy and inspiring summer, it’s time for me  to take some time off.
You can continue shopping on our e_boutique but orders will only be processed  and delivered when I come back, on the first week of October.

Holidays this year will be very special because I will use this time to go back to school for one month in Paris!! (Yes yes all by myself with no kid and no husband… in Paris ^^).
I want to learn more techniques on decorative wall painting and discover new materials. I hope I will have some time to share with you this exciting experience, but will definitely tell you more when I return.

Thank you again for your emails, likes and continuous support these last months.
LOVE,
Assia

Birdy’s first steps

10385461_1536340293256555_3081132762088515167_n

A couple of days ago, we were able to put to the test our new stencils, from the “Birdy” collection, during the “Everybody back to school” charity event organized by 513 Paint Shop.

Here are a few pictures of that wonderful afternoon!

We’ve also tested them on fabrics, with felt pens or copper foil thanks to Elsa’s magic fingers!
As you can see, the options are endless ^^

Now get to your brushes! I am sure you have all kinds of walls, furniture, boxes, bags, tee-shirts in your homes waiting to be customized.
The texture of the paint provided by the 513 Paint Shop was ideal for this type of activity. I highly recommend it. It also works with any type of liquid or spray paint.

The stencils will be available by tomorrow on our e-shop and as soon as next week at the 513 Paint Shop at the PMQ.
Stay tuned!

In addition to that, we are also working on a new collection of stencils that will be exclusively available at their shop and our e_boutique.
The first collection “Birdy” will be launched the 17th of August on the occasion of the Charity event: “Everybody back to school”.
During this event, you will get to paint & customize chairs and school bags in favor of a primary school in Myanmar, a very poor country bordering India and China. Only a few spots are still available, so hurry up to sign up on Facebook here or download the flyer with the application form here.

Gold therapy

During these bleak times, a little color therapy would do us good! Between the Ebola epidemic, the wars, the crashes, invasions, genocides and so on…living in the golden bubble that Hong Kong is , you realize day after day how lucky we are to be in such a safe and stable environment.

So just for a while, just in the time it takes to share with you these few lines, let’s indulge ourselves in the richness ans splendor of gold. In Asia, it is said to be a mineral light, sign of perfection. With its perfect light, gold will thenceforth be used to symbolize perfect beings. Buddha is therefore often covered in gold. Its sight warms the heart and the spirit. We feel secure in a golden environment because it reflects material abundance.

In design, we rarely use gold on its own because it can quickly become oppressive. Ideally, gold is used to add a glow, a sparkle to a space. It generally goes well with all the other colors: I find the association with coral, pink, blue-green or peacock blue very interesting because it gives it a modern twist. Black, brown and white colors will be used for a more classic look.

Here is a little selection from our Pinterest page.

Wishing you a beautiful week
