Earthcote Heritage Colours and Pierre Cronje

3 Apr

SCRAP BOOK: Earthcote Heritage Colours & Pierre Cronje

EARTHCOTE was delighted to be a part of the full-blown revamp of the old Wynberg retail headquarters belonging to Pierre Cronje. The revamp was thanks to the courageous designer-curator vision of Neil Stemmet of Koncept Design.

Neil believes that design should express something unique and convey a story. “We live in a voyeuristic society, where everyone is on social media to convey their stories while watching others show theirs,” he explains.

Neil’s view is that we need to build a society that is sustainable and relies on integrity. He believes that, going forward, retailers will no longer be able to exist alone, but will need to rely more and more on sharing.

The new Pierre Cronje space incorporates a collection of brands and products all under one roof – all in the most artful and disarming ‘un-designed’ look. Hertex Fabrics, Tradewinds Parasols, Modern Garden Company and Earthcote Paints all live alongside Pierre Cronje’s simple, timeless pieces in a space that feels individual, deeply personal and natural.

“It’s much more than a showroom. It’s more an experience than a furniture shop. This new world is all about collaboration, even for a brand as big as Pierre Cronje”
– Neil Stemmet

Earthcote Heritage Colours

Earthcote’s range of heritage colours are used on the walls of the store. There’s also a wall of Paul Smith-like stripes done in Earthcote which tells the stories behind Earthcote colours.

Earthcote Marketing Director Simon Fraser explains: “We curated this collection of colours in a way that expresses the Earthcote colour philosophy in a very concise palette, taking inspiration from the dorps, national heroes and landscapes that sum up South African style. Colours like ‘Bra Hugh’, ‘Mama Afrika’, ‘Surfers Corner’, ‘Arniston White’, ‘The Big Tree’ and ‘Grandma’s Room’ are a few of my personal favourites.”

Interestingly, the brand had discontinued the colour palette. But when they launched the Earthcote brand in Europe a few years ago, there was intense interest in these South African ‘heritage’ colours.

“It surprised us, made us think, and we realised that we needed to re-introduce South Africans to this very special iconic collection of colour,” said Simon.

“The colours are a wonderful backdrop for Pierre Cronje’s simple, honest furniture and along with the kitchen garden outside and the selection of other products in the space, they help to make up a look that feels absolutely natural,” explains Neil, who initiated the collaboration and made it all hang together.

“Together, all the elements make the furniture sing. People want to know how furniture feels in a real space – and it mustn’t feel decorated or done. Seeing a piece of furniture on a showroom floor doesn’t sing – but seeing it in a space that feels like home, does,” says Neil.

An additional charming feature of the new space is that it has a veggie garden outside. “Visitors come to look at furniture and stuff and they get to leave with a bag of freshly picked veggies in a brown paper bag, as a living gift,” says Neil.

Neil’s best-selling cookbook-novel, Sout en Peper, which milks the Kalahari influence on SA culinary tradition and features brands that South Africans have grown up with, will soon be reprinted in English. “The new edition will have a colour chart of Earthcote’s heritage colours. So when you look at that colour swatch called Grandma’s Room – for instance – you will immediately see a picture in your mind of your own ouma’s room.”

If you’re in Cape Town and would like to sample the new home of Pierre Cronje and co., drop in at Wolfe Street, Wynberg. Give them a call on 021 761 4534 or drop them an email at johan@pierrecronje.co.za

You can contact Neil Stemmet on 082 373 3837 or at www.konceptdesign.co.za

Earthcote Granite Paint – Explosive Thinking

11 Jan

What are they thinkING?

THE words ‘explosive thinking’ are rendered in a giant installation, using matchsticks on Earthcote Granite paint, across a feature wall in award-winning PE ad agency Boomtown. Using Granite Paint was an easy decision. PE’s first Paint&Place is located in the shop directly below their upbeat new offices in the repurposed Bridge Street centre in South End. The red ‘pops’ like firecrackers against the charcoal Granite Paint by Earthcote.

The Mobile Paint Lab

9 Jan

INNOVATION: Introducing the Mobile Paint Lab

THE costs of renovating or painting your home can add up pretty fast if one isn’t careful. Having an architect come out for measuring, driving to the paint store to select your colours and mixtures and then having the paint contractors come around to officially begin the process, can be expensive and time consuming.

There is a sure-fire way of having many of these costs cut out of the picture entirely. The “mobile paint lab” is an idea brought into being by Bredasdorp Paint&Place contractor, Andre Swart.

“The idea was actually thought of by my brother in law years ago”, explains Andre. “It is all built around convenience. Clients that make use of our mobile service do not have to drive out to select their paint. We can mix on site and offer paint products and our services right on the spot.”

The Mobile Paint Lab

The Mobile Paint Lab is a Paint&Place on the go - a free and convenient all-in-one service which cuts out many of the costs involved with renovating your home.

Andre has converted a Volkswagen Caddy into a one-man mobile unit, which he calls his “mobile paint lab”. The lab consists of a drawer system with all the paint and tools needed as well as a manual machine for the mixing.

“I have loaded the Cargo Tint Programme on my laptop which enables me to do all the measuring and mixing required from the car”, says Swart. “I also plan to install a printer so that even invoicing can be done on the spot. The Mobile Paint Lab could really be the next best thing for the industry.”

Andre Swart and his mobile paint lab currently operate roughly within an 80km radius around the Overberg area. The mobile paint lab is an additional, 100% free Paint&Place service that is likely to catch on. It is built around convenience, and all that it takes to make use of the mobile paint lab is to give Andre, or the Bredasdorp Paint&Place, a call.

Blouberg Paint&Place store upgrade

22 Dec

New Paint&Place, Living Texture and Bread & Butter deli all in one store

IF you live in Blouberg, you’ve likely heard people talking reminiscently of Ilene Cross’ over-sized, home-baked muffins at the new Bread & Butter deli in Sandown Road.

Husband and wife team Steven and Ilene Cross have infused all their passions into their new Paint&Place store in the Sunningdale Lifestyle Centre in Blouberg. Interior design, décor, real home-baked treats and ensuring that people have a thoroughly memorable experience overall, are what Steven and Ilene have brought to the table.

P&P Bread & Butter

The new Bread & Butter deli is actually inside the new Paint&Place store – allowing visitors to chill out and relax while their paint-related needs are taken care of. But many just pop around for the coffee and a bite of Ilene’s gourmet sandwiches.

“It’s all about presentation and the overall experience”, says store owner Steven Cross. “The new coffee shop has taken off far better than we expected. I believe this is largely due to word of mouth and the homely atmosphere that everyone has helped to create in our new store.”

The new Paint&Place has clearly become more than just a paint store, but a place to relax, treat oneself, and enjoy some good company. The whole move has been such a success, that Steven and Ilene have opened another business, Living Texture, within the new Paint&Place store. Living Texture offers products related to interior design and décor and is a great combination with Paint&Place.

Blouberg Paint&Place

The Blouberg Paint&Place coming to fruition

  • The new Blouberg Paint&Place, Living Texture and Bread & Butter deli is in Shop No. 6 of the Sunningdale Lifestyle Centre, 9 Sandown Road, Sunningdale. Check our Store Locator to find a Paint&Place near you.
