copper tones

Hi everybody! Something new in the Mengsel shop this week. A lovely metallic copper limited edition version of the famous Mini Moka (A3 size) silkscreen print. Only 20 of these printed, so VERY limited edition. I just love copper and it is such a good neutral colour, but still a little bit unusual.

The metallic ink printed quite nicely in the studio and I'm very happy with it. Hope you like it?

Available HERE at the Mengsel shop

(P.S. The cute little birdie was a gift from my mom and is by artist Gisela Graham)

Have a great weekend!

London is abuzz right now with all of the excitement of the 2012 Olympic Games. The atmosphere in my adopted city is amazing. With the Athletics starting this weekend, we will all be glued to the TV watching all of the action. Especially looking forward to seeing fellow South African and all round superhuman hero Oscar Pistorius in action.

Last Friday, I met friends for lunch and decided to walk back to Waterloo station via the "scenic route" past Tower of London, over Tower Bridge, Borough Market, past the Tate Modern and back to newly opened Blackfriars station. I didn't know that it opened on the South side and what a great spot! Right next to the Tate. Great for catching my direct train back home.

We also watched the Olympic Women's Road Cycling at Box Hill. Diving next Friday. I love the Olympics!

Of course I went a little Instagram crazy again. A few snaps of the Olympic City...

PS Remember that there is a 15% discount off your WHOLE ORDER at Mengsel during the entire 2012 Olympic Games. Enter the code OLYMPIC15 at checkout for discount. Yay!

Mengsel's Robots in Love silkscreen print in pea green is featured in the August 2012 issue of Real Homes UK alongside some pretty cool other green interior pieces in various shades of green. Love it!

This print is also available in red, neon pink and grey from the Mengsel Shop.
