The new Number Ten cafe

Research evolved my ideas into mutations of their original form, each part had fallen into another, like dominoes. Martino Gamper, cafes, the history of the sandwich, tea, and afternoon tea. French saloons, Hereford history, traditions and folklore. Paris ,boutiques, antiques , ceramics, and furniture. Richard Hutten and Donna Wilson.

After 3 months of researching, testing, finding themes and putting them in place, sourcing old tables, chairs, frames, cups, saucers, and tea pots. Finding fake grass, ribbons, and birdcages. Drawing, painting, printing, sewing and sticking. Writing blackboards and menus. Hanging and hammering, the cafe was finished and i love it.
