We are incredibly proud that Ana Engelhorn has used our colours throughout her wonderful Period 2 Listed Property in Surrey. The property, featured in the Saturday Times Magazine in November, looks absolutely splendid. Ana is a designer that is not afraid of using colours, embracing them and combining them in the most sublime way. Even though Ana chooses strong colours, because they are all of the same tone, they work beautifully together and they actually create a calm and uplifting feeling.

And so, autumn arrives after a wonderful long summer. This year, we were temporarily closed from July until the beginning of September so that we could finally digitise our formulas; a task that could only be done by me. I had a program especially designed for this. I managed to record 900 formulas, with many more to be done, but this is definitely a good start. We also redesigned our website and created an amazing new colour collection ‘Postcard from Barra’ – more details to follow in November. Summer In July we went to the Isle of Barra, in the…
