Cape Town agency – Instant Grass

In 2011 when this project started, I promised to post a proper BEFORE&AFTER, so here it is. The revamp shots of Cape Town agency Instant Grass. All this fun was the doing of interiors man Jaco Janse van Rensburg – thanks also to the supakeen (and hugely trusting) Instant Grass agency bosses who gave him carte blanche to do whatever – along with some interesting licorice-like paint from the people at Earthcote.
