We just wanted to share this lovely story of inspiration striking that a lovely customer posted on our facebook wall recently.
Tracey told us “Just wanted to let you know and thank you for how your catalogue inspired my recent bedroom makeover. It plopped through the door and as soon as I saw the back cover I started rabbiting on about how “that was exactly the sky blue/grey colour I was looking for” (husband opened one eye and grunted)….. Anyway, a quick trip to the B&Q magic paint colour matching machine and I was good to go!
As you can see, it perfectly sets off my waggy picture above the bed, and also provides a splendid backdrop for my painting of one of your previous models, Mr George Best. He sadly passed away in February and we miss him terribly but it still makes me smile from ear to ear when I see his “man bag” photo. Saving up for a Seagull picture now to finish the room off x”
Some of you might remember Mr George Best as the winner of our photograph competition a few years ago, a handsome and dashing fella he was and no doubt sorely missed by Tracey. This is the winning photograph below.
