In October 2010 I bought a shop from Bob Willans. After seeing the pictures of the projects by Ichiyoh Haga I had the inspiration to start working on it. I must say it took a lot of courage to ´destroy´ the perfect (what a self-confidence :-)) paint job I did on it and make it dirty.
I found it not easy to get the perfect dirty look, but for now it will do. I couldn´t do it nearly as good as Ichiyoh Haga. He is a master!!!!
Here are some pictures.

I hope you like it.
If anybody knows where I can buy another sheet of the wallpaper I used in the shop (can be seen best in the fourth picture) please tell me! It is the black toile de jouy from Small Interiors London.

I want to say welcome to:

Thanks for following.

  1. Ik vind het beeldschoon, die dirty look! Wat een enige winkel zal dit worden! Misschien kun je bij Cora Cottage in Schiedam terecht voor dit behangetje, succes! groetjes

  2. HI! You have done perfect work! The shop looks so amazing! Love the colors! Sorry, I don`t know about the wallpaper..!

  3. Your little shop came out great, Lara! I think you've chosen the right colours and did a good job with letting it look aged. The inside also looks wonderful, I love the wallpaper and especially the floor. Looking forward how it will be when it is filled and decorated :)

  4. Hi, it looks sooooo good!!! Of course you could still age it more, and more....but it looks good as it is. Haga´s houses usually cry for a renovation but your´s is still in better condition :-) Great job and great colors! Sorry, cannot help you with the wallpaper!
    Hugs, Sandra

  11. Hi,
    Your shop is wonderful - I love it! I've used the same wallpaper myself in the past and I think I may have bought it from this website http://www.jennifersofwalsall.co.uk
    They still stock Small Interiors papers and may be able to get some more like yours if you send them an email.

  15. Hi Lara,

    I just love your shop and what you've done with it. The colours are perfect and all work well together and you have done a great job with the ageing effect. The wall paper is pretty too.

    I am looking forward to seeing what goes inside.
