We're often asked about our studio space so here is a sneaky peak of both our home and work studios.
Our work studio in Dulwich is in a renovated Pye Electronics factory. We're huge fans of its industrial look and feel, the exposed brickwork and steel window frames all add to its charm. The building is a creative hub with our neighbouring studios occupied by architects, interior designers and post-production companies. We have our fair share of hipsters! The cafe serves chai soya lattes to men in beards reading Kinfolk magazine - Dulwich is the new Shoreditch and we love it!
Our home studio has a different feel as it's in a Victorian house but still reflects our passion for all things vintage. We can often be found scouring vintage shops in Brick Lane or Paris flea markets. For us it's all about the hunt and over the years we've found quite a few gems. One of us has a weakness for 1970's tea sets so we have quite a few of those (apparently we don't need any more but that is an ongoing discussion).
For us at H&G creative displays are a must. We love an inspiration pin board and we have several in our home and work studios. The cost is minimal but the creative possibilities are endless. We collect postcards, matches, fabric samples, badges, labels and photos to create a layered collage of texture and paper. Our pinboards are truly unique pieces that continually evolve and inspire us.
