The Good Wine Shop

1st November 2018

A few months ago, we wrote a blog about The Good Wine Shop in Kew who chose our eco paint colour Grey Seal for Night and Day ambience. With the help of Nikki Rees Interior Design, The Good Wine Shop gave their Kew store interior a make over in readiness for a new hybrid wine shop and bar venture.

The walls, ceilings and woodwork were all painted in Grey Seal to make the space look larger and softer, choosing a wipeable emulsion finish, ideal for a busy interior. The Chiswick branch chose Moonlight Shadow for their walls not long after.

Very sadly, the Good Wine Shop suffered a misfortunate one in a million fire not long after opening. Not only was their lovely interior fire damaged but they lost much of their wine stock including several rare bottles. The business was forced to close while repairs took place.

They needed a decorating company who could work efficiently and to a high standard. Paint the Town Green was recommended. When they approached Phil, he jumped at the chance to help this lovely business get back on its feet.

There were a few hurdles to cross. Once the cause of the fire was identified and measures put in place to eliminate any further potential risks, the fire-damaged premises needed to be treated by a specialist outfit to prepare them for redecoration. Only then could the Paint the Town Green don their overalls and get prepping and painting.

It was a genuine pleasure to help get the Good Wine Shop back in business. The team took care of all the painting for the entire commercial premise. Out back as well as the store front, using again their first colour choice of Grey Seal, a warm versatile grey, infused with hints of brown and purple. Water-based Paint the Town Green paint are quick-drying and odourless. It is a great choice for commercial premises as it is the least interfering. The time between coats is less and there is no need to air the rooms as there are no lingering paint smells.

We were pleased as punch to see the photos of the finished effort. The shop looks absolutely fantastic. The Good Wine Shop has now re-opened and is back in business. Cheers to that!
