Brownie Passion +

March 12, 2012 2 min read

Yes it is true we are absolutely passionate about brownies but for many of you who have visited our Dello Mano store at 29 Doggett St. Teneriffeyou'll know that we too love art. The words  Dello Mano  are corrupted Italian for "of the hand" meaning that we hand make our brownies, chocolates and cookies. As we were fitting out our new Doggett St. store we felt really strongly that our own hands then should be put to work in creating the atmosphere that would be our first Dello Mano store. We started the decoration process with the library wall (to be honest the rest of the store was still being built but we were on a tight schedule ) where I had been determined to use wallpaper. With less than a couple of weeks to opening day,  I scurried down to the local wallpaper store to select, only to find out that the lead time for many of them was about 3 weeks!  With only days till opening and starring at very blank walls, I decided to get creative.  I painted wall paper and then  spent hours matching and assessing the colours and patterns. Nervously I eventually ripped the paper into pieces to create a collage of colour and interest. As I put the wall together there was much comment from many on site :(  however in the end I felt that we had created something of our own uniqueness,with our own hands and therefore  put a little piece of us (albeit an exhausted us ) into the foundations of the store itself.

Over this last weekend, Adam and Margaret two of our very supportive Dello Manofriends visited the store. Adam is a keen photographer and took this lovely photo of the library collage wall to which I am referring above. Great work Adam and thank you for sharing it so generously with us.
