Earlier this week I finally made it in to Dust. After stalking Sarah and Lisa on their Dust journey and updates on all the amazing things they find and stock, I finally stopped in to their shop. And can I just say. Yes.
Zebras, unicorns, faux hydrangeas and viridian. Dark moody hues splashed with vibrant colours and accessories. High gloss black floors, stairs and banister. I could not fault the place. My eye balls were in heaven …
Dust sell the most beautiful [and convincing] faux flowers. Faux-rangements? I love how they’ve mixed them too in their presentation – not just strictly one group of flowers.
And can we talk about the colour on the walls? Lisa and Sarah went with Farrow & Ball’s Hague Blue that acts almost as a neutral. A deep oceanic hue that makes everything stand to attention and changes so much as the light changes. I’m seriously thinking adding this wall colour to our apartment. Maybe repainting our burgundy wall with it? I now want to change our entire apartment.
Everywhere you turned, there were more gems. It wasn’t possible for me to leave empty handed, so I picked out a few things. One of which is a nihilist’s screen cloth to perfectly match The Dude’s rug mouse pad husband got me for Christmas last year [I painted the final wall in our living room which is behind our desk, so I’m hoping to share an update on that space soon!].
I was unfortunately very limited with what I could buy that day as they all had to fit into my handbag as I was on my bicyclette. But I’ve learned my lesson. Next time I’m bringing the car.
Dust is located just off of Camden Street on Grantham Street. Don’t ask, but for some reason I thought it was nowhere near that. Now that I know Dust is a stones throw from the beginning of one of my favourite charity shop routes, I will be stopping in every. single. time.
And finally, I am forever reminded of the below whenever I see a Dust update pop up in my social media feeds … Anybody? No? Dust.
Happy Friday everyone! Why not enjoy some Dust this weekend? It’s actually very low in fat, so you can have as much as you like.
Oh this shop looks great! I wish I could find some decent faux flowers – you see some in the shops which look so rubbish and fake! But often the decent ones are soooo expensive! But then again, I guess if you compare it against multiple purchases of real flowers… but it's what you can warrant at the time. This does look like a gorgeous shop to look round and just soak in all the beauty, though!
It's so strange, but I'm kind of the opposite. I can't justify paying however much for fresh flowers just to have them die in a few days. I know, my brain doesn't work the right way. Hence I usually splash out and buy the reduced flowers in a shop. I feel sorry for them. Complete ridiculousness. But that's how my brain works :/
No, I completely understand that, I'm such a cheapskate with flowers – I get the cheap and cheerful supermarkert chrysanthemums which cost a few pound and last for weeks! And looking after the reduced ones is very kind – I like that sort of thinking! xx
I'm such a sucker for the underdog. Or undercat? In this case though, the underflower 🙂 xx
LOL I love Little Britain!!!!!!!!! XD
Cool. Love their style.
