50 shades of grey (or gray)

No its not about that book or the film adaptation

It is almost a year since we re branded  eyelines with shop refit – new logos – new website and new colours , and we feel that it has been a very successful change.

What has been very evident over the last year – and prior to that – is just how many businesses and shops are now using grey in their colour schemes or as a colour for a shop-front. Maybe John Major was correct about Grey

eyelines have two different shades of grey in our logo and a third as our main shopfront colour.

 

Walking around Sevenoaks yesterday I could see that a lot of other companies have had a similar idea – maybe not 50 shades but certainly a lot of them:  samples below

(Thanks to Hanna @ Ditto my colour guru for lending me the Pantone Cards)

 

And as for grEy or grAy it depends on what side of the Atlantic you hail from and that is irrelevant for the book as the Grey in the book is of course a Surname.

saturday lunchtime in sevenoaks

I love the Saturday market in Sevenoaks – set up just across the street from the practice it provides the perfect opportunity to indulge in some delicious treats for lunch as well as giving a different look and feel to the town on a Saturday.

Billy Westley aided by Sons Richard and James have been providing the people of Sevenoaks with their fruit and veg for years and years – Billy will always have a great selection of produce as well as some great banter and if you time it just right he will cut you a slice of ripe Mango or Watermelon or whatever may be in season.

There is also a Fresh flowers and plants stall which all brings a wonderful burst of colour to the high street even on the dullest of days.

My personal favourite for lunch is Roast Onion Bread (from Mick) filled with Jalapeño Cheese (From John) Tomatoes (From Billy) grilled in the panini maker  with pimento stuffed olives and cheese filled peppers on the side – the only problem is we are often too busy on a Saturday to enjoy it properly
