A Labor of Love

I spent the second half of last week redecorating the front of the Candy Black studio, it was on such a impulse i didn't take any photos before i started, which is really annoying as the place is unrecognisable now!
I started off by painting the fence, which was originally a light brown to black And the side of the studio which was red brick to white. The photo doesn't do the space justice..these were two large walls!
I then stripped the front of the studio of any unwanted (but important) items, such as the letter box, intercom and alarm system, To Jason and the landlords horror. all in the name of design : ). I added Nordic Spar (very fancy name) for white pebbles around the boarder of the slaps and a large palm tree to lighten the place up a little. The door was also white with the large bars on the inside, I repainted it black and got the boys to move the bars from the inside to the outside adding an industrial feel.
Jason designed our Candy Black sign and a quote which summed up how we feel about our venture 'Fortune and Love Favour the Brave' .
Its still a bit of a working process but over all we are really happy with the new and improved entrance to our studio.
