Damien Hirst in London

I have just come back from London where I was sourcing for our shop, Abi & Scarlett....
Whilst i was there I went to see the Damien Hirst exhibition at Tate Modern, and found a new found respect for this artist, whose main preoccupation is with the cycle of death whilst also exploring colour. 
Definitely worth a visit if passing through the big smoke

Particularly love these butterfly works - intriciately executed using thousands of butterfly wings and they are literally the size of stained glass windows

As part of the installation, viewers pass through a room of live butterflies – hatching, mating, laying eggs and eventually dying.

Recycled glass lights for private house

Below are some more recycled glass light images of lights, this time that I organised for a private house in Lusaka, Zambia.  
The owners are big art collectors and love, in particular, interesting furniture pieces and lighting that has an integrity and handmade craftmanship that these lights definitely demonstrate.

Funky Lettering

Another styling idea for our new Abi & Scarlett Shop (36 Bay Road, Mouille Point, Cape Town)...simply put, I love this

Styling inspiration for Abi&Scarlett shop....

We are looking at styling ideas for our new retail space - Abi & Scarlett, 36 Bay Road, Cape Town where SOUL and other great brands and sourced items are sold.
 Below are some inspirations....
(We off to London for a sourcing trip, back end of May with lots of delicious stock and plans for re-styling)

Flouro different coloured lighting

We have a bright pink front door - idea of chalking on messages on the front of it
Continuing the flouro colours with touches of them in the general styling...
Love this idea for displaying cushions and textiles and also doing a corragated iron screen to back our front window display

Other screen ideas for the creating a back for the front window display... 
 Other ways of displaying textiles...a painted gypsy bed or bedhead only mounted onto a wall

Or on our stairs or creating staged stairs for display
 Art prints display

Simple styling

 Painted sections of wall - or covered with fabrics as wallpapers
 Shelving ideas
