Adding art to your home January 26, 2018 12:00

This week we have been mostly... adding art to our homes!

 Art posters and vintage hand decorated cabinet

Our A2 posters look fab framed, but have had them propped up in a corner forever. At long last they are hung in the entrance hall. Accessorised with oddball items of course. These include a vintage cabinet hand decorated by Lisa, stand up animals and a Shaun Ryder mask.

Vintage armchairs and diamante boombox

This shot is of some very retro brown PVC reclining armchairs purchased for first flat from an antique shop in the Angel Islington and finally destined to be on their way to a good home somewhere else. Couldn't resist using giant diamante boombox (originally used for window display in The Retailery) to help display them at their finest when listing for sale.

Loved the pic so much it had to go on our Instagram @brennanandburch for posterity. Follow us on there for more behind the scenes shots as well as art and other stuff that we see along our travels.

Memories and tunez on Made Public radio show June 20, 2017 12:00

We were invited along to Time 107.5 radio station to do a little interview with the lovely Lauren Martin from Made Public. We chatted about all things B&B, where we started and up to the present day with a few of our favourite tunes thrown in. We also chatted about The Retailery re-fit that we have been involved in with our wallpapers and limited edition art prints. We had a great time!

The Retailery Xmas Window Display November 23, 2016 12:00

Brennan & Burch were commissioned to create a Twisted Nutcracker window display scene to echo the weird and wonderful vibe of new creative hub The Retailery in Romford.

The window display was launched at the official Romford Market Xmas lights switch-on 17 November 2016 and featured a live nutcracker character dancing in the window. The mayoress of Havering came down to launch the new business venue on 19 November 2016.
