Shady business…

One of our favourite local boozers, The White Horse, has had something of a minor refurbishment recently and so we were asked to drop by and reintroduce a little id-iom colour to their newly decorated setup. First off we were given a couple of industrial lampshades that had been acquired and were due to go up and asked ‘Can you do something with these? But don’t overdo it’.

Minimalism can be something of a challenge for us but we agreed to give it a go anyway. After much deliberation about the use of colour and multiple stencils we kept it just about as simple as we could manage and went for a quote and just one red diamante on each lampshade. The quotes are:

‘Those who dance are considered insane by those who cannot hear the music’

‘Your body is not a temple, it’s an amusement park. Enjoy the ride.’

Our final move was to artificially age the lampshades a little so they looked a little more used and thus fitted into the pub’s existing decor a bit easier. And that was that. I should probably also offer my apologies for the quality of the photos. All I can say is that it’s pretty tough to get a decent shot of the shades when the text runs around the inside rim (also, spraying the stencils themselves is pretty tricky but that’s another story). Anyway, that’s my excuse and i’m sticking to it…

Stay tuned for round 2 with our rather saucy pic that is going in the gents toilet corridor (after the workmen mistakenly painted over our last one)…
