New Annie Sloan Colours Available now! 九月 11, 2019 18:21

Annie Sloan has released two new sophisticated colours of Chalk Paint this Autumn. 

Oxford Navy: an inky traditional navy blue which evokes the traditional blue ink of fountain pens. A nod to the academia of Oxford, where Chalk Paint is made.

Athenian Black: A true deep velvety black. Dramatic and decedent.

These are both sure to be popular colours for painted furniture. Both available at La Di Da Interiors, order yours today! 

September Sock Offer and New Arrivals 八月 31, 2019 17:00

Our shop refurbishment is complete and we have been inundated with boxes of stock arriving ready for Autumn. From beautiful Tweedmill blankets, wicker log baskets, glass hurricane lamps and hedgehog socks we have a little something for everyone. 

We also had a brainwave and have created a new collection imaginatively titled "New Arrivals" showcasing our new products as they come in so it's easy for you to see what's new in store. Pop over and have a look! 

Our September offer is on our fabulous luxury bamboo socks, buy 3 and get a 4th pair free! There is no need to add a code as the discount will automatically be applied at the checkout. Valid while stocks last, ends 30th September 2019

Delivery delays due to shop refurbishment 八月 17, 2019 11:39

You may have seen on our facebook page that we are closing our shop for refurbishment. We are excited to bring you a new and improved retail shop with better lighting, new decoration, heating and more! We regularly work for commercial clients on shop fit outs and decided that it's about time to do our own. We look forward to being able to showcase our interior design skills and create an even more beautiful space for you to explore our products in. 

Therefore there may be some delays with postage this coming week, all online orders received before 6am on Monday 19th will be dispatched on Monday 19th. Any orders received after 6am on 19th are unlikely to be posted until Monday 26th. We apologise any inconvenience this may cause but hope that you'll understand. We are a small family business and packing the whole shop into boxes, renovating an old building with new electrics, plumbing, flooring and decorating is challenging, let alone to complete it within 4 days. It's going to be busy!

We look forward to sharing the new look La Di Da Interiors with you shortly.

Much love

Gin-tastic Eco News! 二月 6, 2019 19:27

You know that we love recycling, upcycling and repurposing here at La Di Da Interiors. This week we have introduced our new recycled gin balloon glasses which have been a massive hit with customers. We of course thoroughly tested them prior to stocking and can confidently say that they’re fabulous for a good large gin and tonic.

Gin Balloon Glass Recycled

We repurpose as much of our supplier packaging as possible – if you’ve ever ordered from us for delivery you will know that we don’t have posh packaging but we believe it’s what’s inside the parcel that counts, not how shiny the box looks on arrival. It cuts down on cost and is good for the environment too. This week we had our new paint bags (for courier deliveries) arrive which are now 100% recycled plastic too. In store we only have paper bags now, although we have noticed that the recycled, reusable plastic bags are still a popular product.

Emma Bridgewater Recycled Plastic Bottle Bag

Reusing sits higher on the waste hierarchy than recycling. In 2016 the European average recycling rate was estimated to the 54% and the reuse rate was estimated at 7%*

We work closely with our suppliers and have been working on how to reuse more often. We are therefore delighted to announce that we are now the exclusive return point for Wessex Spirits. Simply return your Wessex Spirits bottle (Test Valley GinSpire Gin or Solstice Gin) to our shop and receive £1 off the purchase of your next bottle**. The returned bottles will be cleaned and sanitised and re-filled and reused.

Test Valley Gin

Kate Griffin, Wessex Spirits said “

I’m so excited to be part of this scheme - what a great idea! At Wessex Spirits we try to do our bit and like La Di Da we reuse as much packaging and reduce waste as much as possible. 

I’ve had so many customers say it’s such a shame to throw away the bottles - they are all so beautiful. So if you’re not up-cycling your bottle at home what better excuse to go and have a nose around the best shop in Andover and feel virtuous at the same time? I look forward to receiving loads of bottles to sterilise and reuse. Drink up!"

Steph Briggs, La Di Da Interiors said “we already stock Wessex Spirits and our opening hours make perfect sense for us to be the bottle drop off point for them. It’s a great way of recycling bottles and supporting local businesses at the same time.”

This small, local initiative is part of our drive to be as environmentally friendly as possible.

La Di Da Interiors are at Rear of 34 Bridge Street, Andover SP10 1BW and are open 10am – 5pm Tuesday to Saturday.

A week with Annie Sloan in Oxford 十月 3, 2017 17:56

As an Annie Sloan Chalk Paint stockist I have been trained to teach workshops by Annie Sloan. Upcycling furniture is a fabulous part to our business that I enjoy immensely, we upcycle vintage furniture for sale in the shop and online, we've sold pieces to new homes all over the UK, and even sent one sideboard as far as Germany. 

Recently I was fortunate enough to be selected as 1 of 18 stockists to spend a week with Annie at Chalk Paint HQ in Oxford. There are over 1700 stockists worldwide as as the only Brit along I felt honoured. 

Annie Sloan Interiors HQ door

We spent a week experimenting with paint, block printing fabric, up cycling vintage chairs, studying colour theory in interior design, making clocks, eating fabulous food and learning about instagram and it's impact in interiors design. 

Upcycling a vintage chair

I made some fabulous friends along the way with people travelling from Greece, Holland, France, the USA, and New Zealand to be there (I felt almost lazy driving an hour along the A34)

My resolution this year was to really push myself as an artisan painter, my week with Annie has helped me to  push my paint work to another level.

Reviews of our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Workshops at La Di Da 十一月 6, 2016 14:59

We love running our Annie Sloan Chalk Paint workshops at La Di Da Interiors, Luxuries & Gifts. They're all really fun courses and it's fabulous to see our students learn, gain confidence and go on to produce fabulous results! 

Feedback is really important to us, below are a few comments from some of our students....

Been wanting to do this course for over a year and have lots of projects in our new house. So glad I did this course it's really shown me how to maximise the use of Annie Sloan paint... Thank you so much...
Krysia Eddery 

Love the courses at La Di Da, they provide a great environment to learn the techniques in. Steph is friendly and professional in her approach. I have learnt loads and really enjoyed being able to find my creative spirit again.
Louise Wells

I knew nothing about Annie Sloan Chalk Paint before the course. The course was great and gave all the basics to get started! Now I just need to convince hubby to let me paint our furniture!
Elise Taylor

I had looked at the adverts for this course a number of times before finally deciding to give it a go, and boy am I glad I did. It is ideal for anyone new to upcycling as it not only teaches you the techniques you need to know, but also the short cuts, Steph is more than happy to share her wealth of knowledge during the morning. On the course I attended we seemed to spend most of our time having "light bulb moments" as our eyes were opened to just what could be achieved with Annie Sloan products.
I would thoroughly recommend this course
Sue Canavan

Stephanie was a superb teacher and I loved my intro to Annie Sloan painting techniques. Following on from the course I have gone on to do several projects.
I'd recommend anyone to this course for those who like me love restoring furniture but needed to know some techniques or if you just fancy trying something new!
Sadly as I am moving I wont be able to come back to any courses with Stephanie but she was a great teacher and her business at La Di Da is certainly a success!

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint™ at La Di Da 2016 十二月 21, 2015 12:09

We are privileged to be the selected stockist of Annie Sloan for the area. In 2015 I was trained by Annie herself to extend and develop my techniques using her products, a fabulous experience! The products are second to none, beautiful colours, easy to use, the most versatile on the market and of a quality that speaks for itself.

I love running our workshops to help our clients to build their confidence in using the products and to work on their own projects. It makes running La Di Da so much fun, seeing the results of clients painting and helping them to plan the next one! Being an Annie Sloan stockist is more than a commercial function, we have a massive creative team behind us at Annie Sloan HQ and the drive and genuine enthusiasm to develop our offering to you is insuppressible.

2016 is the year for development at La Di Da, we are looking forward to training further with Annie and extending our range of workshops, developing our range of revived and up cycled furniture and bringing the endless possibilities of Chalk Paint to even more people. Bring it on! #AnnieSloan #ChalkPaint #MoreThanPaint #2016

New Look La Di Da 十二月 18, 2014 15:55

Welcome to our new look website! 

Along with building the website, over the summer we have found some fabulous new suppliers, from up cycled cashmere from Turtle Doves to sparkly gorgeous cards hand finished by Willow James, we aim to stock the majority of our products from independent UK artists, craftspeople and British small businesses! 

The aim of our new website is to enable you to quickly find exactly what you are looking for, whether its accessories for the home, garden furniture or a gift for someone special. 

Customers locally and nationwide can now purchase our lovely products online. Some of the heavier or delicate items are only ever available in our shop but the majority (including the ever popular, large and heavy garden mirrors!) are available to ship via a courier. 

Thank you for your loyalty - we look forward to seeing you soon!
