Shades of Grey: Kate Watson-Smyth

At the end of February I had the pleasure of attending the book launch for Shades of Grey, an incredible release from Kate Watson-Smyth taking us through the "colour of the moment" in a gorgeous book filled to the brim with inspirational images, ideas and analysis. I can honestly say, as a designer myself, even I have learned a thing or two from this book. Who knew that there was so much to know about shades of grey!? 

Shades of Grey Book Launch

The event was hosted at the very modern and very fascinating showroom just off Shaftesbury Avenue, a fantastic surrounding for the book, even exhibiting their very own tasteful grey pieces to match in with the event. Whilst getting side tracked, I discovered to incredible pieces that I really want for myself, the hexagon wooden bookshelf and the very impressive Chicago floor lamp imaged above. 



Getting back on track, I managed to capture some fantastic images of the event, meeting a few of my favourites, Sarah Akwisombe, Russell & Jordan from 2LovelyGays, Sian Astley, Emilie Jacob and of course, the star of the show, Kate Wastson-Smyth herself! I even managed to capture her speech on video for all of us to see! (above) 

It really was such a great event and I feel very privileged to have been able to take part and meet so many lovely people. I would strongly recommend purchasing a copy of Shade of Grey yourself, there is so much to learn about grey! You can purchase the book buy clicking the link through to Amazon. Thank you to you all and I hope to see you all again really soon!
