2016 Stendig Calendar | Available for pre-order now!

We are very excited to have another batch of these amazing calendars for sale at MintSix. Pre-order your 2016 calendar H E R E

This beautiful calendar was designed in 1966 by Massimo Vignelli and that year made it into the Design collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.  

After 48 years, a design from the sixties endures as an example of excellence in modern graphic design. 

The Stendig wall calendar consists of twelve sheets. In random order, the calendar sheets for some months are reverse printed producing a black background with white letters and numerals with other months printed in black on white background.  

The sheets are perforated along a line just under the binding strip to allow them to be torn away neatly. (Removed sheets are great for wrapping gifts).  The binding strip of the calendar has three matte black finish metal eyelets to facilitate easy hanging. 

These calendars can be used all over the house but are most commonly used in the office, kitchen, entryway and bedrooms.

We have only managed to secure a limited number of these beauties so pre-order yours now so you don't miss out! Delivery of the calendars will be late October, 2015. STENDIG PRE-ORDER

Paint | Five Ways

In my job I spend a fair amount of time thinking about paint and in particular, creative ways to use it.

It's a relatively easy and affordable way to freshen up any space and you can pretty much do whatever you like with it, the options are endless.


Painting just one wall in a room is still a popular choice and a good way to add colour, interest and contrast to a space.

A great way to make the television blend into the wall.

I'm a big fan of using floating shelves that are the same colour as the wall.
A great way to draw the eye to a selection of artworks


The idea of painting only half a wall, especially the bottom half is definitely one that appeals to me! Again, this is a great way to add just a small splash of colour and contrast.



A good alternative to doing a standard feature wall, painting the ceiling can add drama and emphasise architectural features or detailing. 



An easy way to make a feature of your window frames and internal doors. 

Painting the inside of a door with a pop of colour is an subtle way to add some colour and also an unexpected surprise for visitors.


This is often used as a way to emphasise a particular area of a room. It's also great for behind shelving, desks and commonly seen in children's bedrooms. 

I hope you been inspired to get the paintbrush out and transform a space in your home.
