I met Magda from My Decor Ideas at one of the very first fairs I attended in the early days of knittykittybangbang. The fair was a complete disaster, but Magda and I stayed in touch and she has attended almost every one of the knittykittybangbang presents events. I've seen her progress from making cushions and small painted household items, to completely renovating everything from shelves to chaise as well as making her own candles.
On 1st August, Magda took the brave step of opening up her own shop! Any excuse for a party, of course, so along to the opening I went and ate cake and drank fizz. Magda has really great taste so I knew the shop would be gorgeous and it is!
Magda is an example of what hard work can do, as well as proving that craft doesn't have to be twee. Her pieces have a 'modern rural' feel, using beautiful, comfortable and warm materials, but in, as the name suggests, a more urban colour pallette and slick lines than the usual shabby chic look.
Shades of Blue and Grey is open Tuesday - Saturday from 11am, 281 Holburn Street, Aberdeen (parking directly across the road)
