Down to Earth – Earthcote Heritage Colours

2 Jul

HERITAGE COLOURS: Dollar Brand, Fugard’s Tearoom, Gandhi’s Tea, Mama Africa and The Baxter

Dollar Brand

Dollar Brand

Remember tunes like Manenbergm, anthem of a liberation struggle?
Abdullah Ibrahim made it kwaai. A deep red kind of kwaai.

Fugard's Tearoom

Fugard’s Tearoom

Remember bulls eyes and scones and crème soda floats? Yes you do. It’s all coming back. Master Harold and the Boys were there.

Gandhi's Tea

Gandhi’s Tea

No milk, thank you. No sugar. He is not an English lady. And he thinks Western Civilization is an excellent idea. He lived in Durbs once, you know. He did South Africa proud.

Mama Afrika

Mama Afrika

Miriam Makeba’s voice was like creamed honey.
Okay alright then, it was like double chocolate malt.

There was only one Mama Afrika.

The Baxter

The Baxter

Orange you glad it’s this big and cheeky? Don’t you just love how the Sixties came and slapped the Fifties in the face? Dancers and thespians, The Baxter is Cape Town’s tribute to you.

Earthcote Heritage Colours – Whites & Off-Whites

27 Jun

HERITAGE COLOURS: Arniston White, St James White, Surfer’s Corner, Westcliff Terrace and Two Oceans

Arniston White

Arniston White

In February, the sun hammers down on the crunchy white sand. That’s not snow white, that’s blister white. Wear slip slops and sunblock, and don’t get tangled up in the old fishermen’s ropes.

St James White

St James White

Little old white cottages.
Big old white sharks.
Train tracks in between.
White weddings every Saturday in the stone church between the mountain, the sky and the sea.

Surfer's Corner

Surfer’s Corner

It’s warmer this side, in False Bay. None of that icy water that bites your bones. Sharks? What sharks? Where? OK. Let’s go catch a wave and a samoosa from the Majestic Cafe. And pick up some wax from Corner Surf.

Westcliff Terrace

Westcliff Terrace

At night, zoo lions groan. Do they mourn the bushveld? Do they not know they sleep on prime real estate? Can’t they smell the Pimm’s?

Two Oceans

Two Oceans

On the Atlantic side it’s cold, on Indian side it’s warm. Somewhere in the middle, it must be perfect. Just don’t let the baboons jump into your car.

GRANITE PAINT: Earthcote’s robust, brush-on interior and exterior DIY product

Inspired by the look of granite rock, Earthcote’s robust, DIY Granite Paint gets its flecked appearance from recycling dried paint. Granite rock has a unique effect; every time you look at it, you see different flecks of colour. Sometimes the red jumps out at you, sometimes the blacks or the greens surface. Granite paint has been described as having a rather “magical” effect.
