Gradient textured effect 1/2

I recently had the opportunity to work on two wall projects quite similar to each other in terms of technique.
Both are in shades of grey but with bases of different colours (one has a grey base and the other has a white base) and both have a gradient effect.
The gradient is quite trendy at the moment, the return of the 70s in fashion and decoration in recent seasons is certainly responsible for the trend.

Gradients increase the impression of space by “stretching” the colour.
The effect obtained is light. The gradient brings colour without saturating the room.
I find the effect very interesting although technically more difficult to do than an ordinary texture effect.
I invite you to reread the article “Half painted walls” which explains the kind of effect.
My clients are still in the “moving in” phase, I hope to show you photos with the furniture and decoration very soon.

La vie en rose

I recently worked for a family that has gone through one of those difficult challenges that life throws at you.
My job was to work on the main wall in the living room of the house in order to bring a new harmony and dynamic.
The space was too monochrome and masculine, so we chose to work with pink to rebalance the colour perception and the masculine / feminine balance of the room.
It is still surprising to me, despite years spent in this trade, to see how a simple wall in a specific colour can reenergise a space.
I wish this family a wonderful new start and I hope that my little intervention will have contributed to them feeling better in their new home.

Time for a change!

Some of you may have already seen the news on Instragram, I have settled in a brand new studio a few days ago!
It was an opportunity to do some reorganising and finally making the decisions I had been putting off for a while. I’m sure you know the feeling …
So it was with great sadness that I closed a part of our e-shop, the wall sticker part.
It’s time to make room for new products and inspirations.
This was a product that led me to discover the murals universe that doesn’t fit me anymore, I’m aiming to work with more natural and sensory techniques, such as paper, paint or plaster.

I will still keep a small collection for sale here and the custom created stickers will always be available. The production and installation will be processed by a third party.

It is with so much joy that I’m sharing with you a little preview of the new studio, which is still based in Discovery Bay (HK) and that I share with the talented Eleanor Mc Coll!
You are obviously welcome to visit :) We hope to offer workshops for adults as well as children as soon as possible!
