News flash – Chorley Springtime print raises £230 for Alder Hey

A 3′ x 4′ print of Chorley Springtime was bought by local firm C.P. Davidson at a charity event at Shaw Hill last night (Friday 6th October). The print was donated by artfortheworkplace and Poppy Signs to Lady Captain’s Charity Auction, which followed a special golf day at the club.

Trend alert!! – Millenium Pink

Playing a main role during the Milan Design Week 2017, the so-called Millenial Pink is now a trend in the design world thanks to its versatility.

The trend comes from the fashion sector, where this colour was already one of the most used. An example was the Milan Design Week of this year, where many designers used it for different applications.The proposal of the French designer Marc Ange, “Le Refuge” stood out above the rest. His design is composed by a bed entirely millenial pink that matches with a leaf canopy of this same tone, forming a unique and innovative space. Wow!

Murals express character and vitality

On a recent trip to Florida and Houston, Texas I saw many examples of murals (indoor and outside in the street) and acceptable graffiti. In Houston they even had places where anyone can try out their skills and ideas with spray cans.


Manchester has many examples.

Maybe it’s time for smaller towns and boroughs in the UK, like Chorley, to liven up the environment with some street art? Let’s get started! 07590 459328.

Romantic Seaside Wedding Venue

A forward-thinking committee for a community centre in the beautiful seaside town of Lyme Regis, Dorset, have engaged us to create a scheme for a special room which is to be used for weddings and civil ceremonies, as well as other functions. The brief is to provide a setting that is both romantic and atmospheric, and has the spirit of the town and all its well-known features. Our scheme includes images by local photographer Richard Austin, who’s work is well known nationally and often featured in the national papers, as wallpaper feature murals showing the famous ‘Cobb’ harbour wall and Marine Parade. Other images of vintage flowers, country wreathes and plaster cherubs, also in wallpaper panels, will be complemented by soft pastel painted walls, chandelier wall lights and striped roman blinds. A wooden floor will have a pink carpet rolled out for ceremonies and chair covers with lace bows will complete the perfect setting for a romantic country/seaside wedding.
