Hello Singapore

Marguerite&Gribouilli_hello_singapore_elephant_web

During my recent getaway to Singapore, I enjoyed drawing the famous colonial-style facades of the buildings downtown. I absolutely loved the colors and the architecture. I was so inspired by it all that we have decided to turn two of these drawings into posters which are now available in our e-shop. They would make wonderful gifts to hand out this summer to your loved ones, don’t you think!

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 a fairy mood

To end the week gently, I welcome you into Marguerite&Gribouilli’s enchanted fairy world.You probably already met our first Angels, launched almost seven years ago. It was therefore about time to introduce you to their new siblings. The Angels stickers are a great addition to children’s room. They somehow make the room feel dreamy and cosy.

We have been working in the past weeks on several projects, which is why we have not posted as regularly as we used to. We should be back to our regular rhythm very soon to share with you some new products, DIY tutorials as well as new design ideas.
Have a great week end!


A piece of my home, the entrance

If you live in Hong Kong you will have, in the coming weeks, plenty of time to take care of your indoors. You know it! Rainy season has definitely started.

I took advantage of the bad weather this week-end to redecorate our entrance, a project that has been on the back burner for over two years. In this space, we have been using a set from Ikea’s BESTA collection, which is conveniently modular.  I like the pure lines and the glossy finish of the furniture, which gives it a very smooth look.

With that being said, I still wanted to add to it my own personal touch. And so all of a sudden this long overdue project became in the morning a matter of emergency that had to be finished before the end of the day!

And so a few brush strokes and hammer blows later, we were able to enjoy our new entrance.

Redecorating the space meant adding a splash of color to the walls and the furniture. We first started by painting a large streak on the main wall, a quick and easy task my little assistant helped with.

Then, instead of using regular frames, I attached family photos to a rope and taped some directly to the wall using washi tape. I also hung a large world map canvas from the M&G collection (available here). I like the playfulness this canvas brings to the space.

To add a touch of color both to the walls and the furniture, I used the Gros pois stickers (girl palette). And I customized the furniture doors with stickers from the Plain is boring collection, which will be available soon in our e-shop,  so stay tuned!

Lucky 5 collection


If you can't see the catalogue, click here

We are beyond excited to be unveiling today the Lucky 5 collection.  It has been a lot of fun playing with the khamsa, the traditional North African lucky charm, mixing up conservative patterns with bold graphics on a palette of mineral colors.

The collection comes on wall stickers, posters but also on mugs!
It’s an ideal housewarming gift to indulge for yourself and for others without moderation!
