  1. The time has come to wake up from winter hibernation to enjoy nature’s first display of its lovely variety of colours.

    My Spring/Easter Blog reflects the spirit of this beautiful season, daring to seek out colours, colour combinations and colour palettes, which the majority of today’s eager minimalist interior doer-uppers might reject.

    While I am not suggesting you throw out the new and go mad transforming your home into ‘hue heaven’, adding a touch of colour here and there, might give your interior that ‘icing on the cake’!

    So, dare to be different and inject some colour back into your life!

    What an amazing selection of Biedermeier chairs…..I want them all! Sadly this multi colour set was exhibited in the Louvre in Paris. However, this is just a little taster to take you away from designs you see all the time and to inspire you to try out something with a very individual touch.  I have done some research and come up with a few not dissimilar models which look equally amazing and are perfect for mixing and matching. These chairs are not cheap but for those who like this style of furniture the quality is quite evident and the unusual design worth the investment:
