The animals of Merrimaking HQ

Merrimaking is a fresh fashion label that incorporates everything fun into their truly unique designs (link). Last weekend Jen and I stayed at home of one of Merrimaking's founders, Meg with her fiancée Lucy, Nelly the cat, the 4 dogs; Tomboy, Lola, Nev and Dexter and their rat. The fun side of the business is synonymous with the lifestyle that Meg and Lucy live. There is never a dull or quiet moment in their colourful house and with their amazing pets.

Streetlights are often the only available sources of light in the back streets, highlighting areas of interest in their immediate vicinity, bathing them with a warm glow. Quite the contrast to how it actually feels. Winter is definitely on its way.
