We have always maintained that looking after the environment is a collective effort and depends entirely on everybody doing their bit. We are constantly striving to improve the way we do business here at Paint the Town Green. For example, we have recently joined forces with First Mile who believe all companies can be planet savers and offer a simple and low-cost recycling and waste service for businesses.

Together with The Decor Cafe, Juliette Travers, Maitland and Poate and Clara Bee, we recently hosted an event at the Paint the Town Green showroom to talk about how to bring your home to life with colour and pattern. The event was inspired by the fact that homeowners are turning to colour and pattern more and more to introduce brighter, bolder and more uplifting looks into their homes. We have not written it up until now as we wanted to wait a while before reliving it all over again! It was a fabulous, most enjoyable morning. We got super feedback...

Decors Barbares, Maximalism, Molly Mahon, Nathalie Farman-Farma, Oliver Thomas -

When you deal with colour day in and day out, maximalism is a concept you become less and less afraid of over time. Nathalie Farman-Farma, founder of textile-design business Decors Barbares is shown here wearing La Double J as shot by this month's Vogue. We coveted La Double J's Italian home not so long ago. It's maximalist fashion meets interiors and quite frankly, we love it! We also love Decors Barbares who source 19 Century fabrics from Odessa to Lisbon and reprint their patterns in a 150 year-old workshop. With only high profile clients under her belt (Tory Burch, Violet von Estenholz - matchmaker...
