Mini Moderns have teamed up with Newlife Paints, an award winning eco paint manufacturer that specializes in reprocessing waste water-based paint to create premium grade emulsion. All products in the Mini Moderns Environmentally Responsible Paint range contain up to 90% recycled content, made up from waste paint that has been diverted from landfill or incineration.

Here’s more inspiration about half dipped and half painted decor, this time by the influence of Moroccan interior design style.
A simple idea to create the Moroccan atmosphere is to use the handmade Havtorn dishes and pots of stoneware from IKEA. Use a few shades of ordinary wall paints, dipp pots and dishes and let the final result be a bit random! The paint dries in less than two hours and gets a nice matte finish.
Beautiful rugs, plants and sated burnt tones produce a harmonious and cozy atmosphere of Scandinavian-white room.
