The gold likely to be uppermost in many people’s minds right now is the spectacular tally of Britain’s 29 gold medals at the London 2012 Olympics. Craig & Rose had a proud part to play in celebrating this, as its gold metallic paint was used to adorn several post boxes. Two post boxes in Edinburgh were painted gold to celebrate Sir Chris Hoy’s cycling victories and a box in Peebles in the Scottish Borders was painted to celebrate Scott Brash’s equestrian gold.
If you plan to go for gold in decorating your home, our paint can be used both internally and externally. Gold, or touches of it, in a bedroom or bathroom – or even in a living or dining room – can give an exotic or slightly decadent feel. Externally, it might suggest your house is a temple! Maybe it is.
