Fishy loo and metallic tyres

DORADO: fishy loo decor & metallic tyres

This aloe flower-pot was spotted on a sidewalk in Muizenberg – outside the studio of creative explorer and lighting designer extraordinaire, Riaan Chambers. Riaan makes the most beautiful things out of glass, shells, discarded materials and found objects. This is a great way to repurpose old tyres, by turning them into planters. The use of metallic paint on tyres is an unexpected twist, and notice how good metallics look in combination with white. We like that. Earthcote Dorado smooth paint would achieve exactly this kind of look.

We also love the metallic scales (pictured below) painted by Cape Town art director Alistair Palmer. This is in the ‘fishy loo’ at Olympia Cafe in Kalk Bay – one of Cape Town’s finest seafood destinations. Alister painted the scales in various tones of Earthcote Dorado, turning a dodgy looking look into a local talking point.
