Hi de ho!

Indian Summer is a lovely shop in Parsons Green full of gorgeous, pretty, pieces.  Interiors, clothing and the sort of smaller things that make a whole room beautiful as if by magic. The shop is thoughtfully laid out and I reckon if you worked there you wouldn’t be able to leave without spending half your wages.  It’s run by Ruth Kehoe and everything you see was carefully picked by her, she’s got a great eye and is funny and kind to boot.

Anyway, in  between freezing our extremities off, cups of Ruth tea, curly wurlies, bathroom breaks and trying to stand up straight while rigid with cold….Rohan and I painted a mural of trees and birds on the shop front.

The shop is pink and the paint a light bluey grey – it has a similar effect to cyan and magenta in that where the colours meet , your eyes get psyched out a bit and it’s really hard to photograph.

We love the warmth the birds gave and will pop back again and add a few more some time soon.

It’s always concentrated aceness to work with Rohan,

thank you!

Rohan started sleeping up there (we only had one bedroom and rohan slept in the living room) until he started to go mad from the dripping water tank.

He’s fine now x
