We had the pleasure of meeting Delphis Eco at a Blue Patch breakfast meeting last year. We use their fabulous eco-products to clean our showroom and we love to recommend it to our customers to clean walls that have been painted with our wipeable finish. Eco used to have slightly hippy connotations. Today however, it's now cool to have a conscience and eco has become more glam.

Although we have been doing this for a while now, we still get excited when we get to see completed projects that have used our paint. Most recently, The Good Wine Shop in Kew has been painted wall to ceiling in Grey Seal, a warm versatile grey, infused with hints of brown and purple. It was Debbie at the Decorcafe network who introduced experienced visual merchandiser and Interior Designer Nikki Rees to the Good Wine Shop. They needed help to improve the interior of their Kew store in readiness for a new hybrid wine shop and bar venture. Still a...
