I recently wrote about my love of green and velvet, and how I thought velvet will be a growing trend this year.
Look what popped into my inbox recently. If only my computer keyboard had Emojis, I would have shown you that canary yellow face with the two red love hearts popping out of its eyes!
How gorgeous is that Emerald green chair, part of French Bedroom company’s recently launched Kae collection.
I know I said I loved green velvet, but now I’m being tempted with so much more choice, enough to fuel my shopping habit. ( Emoji with hands over eyes).
This Popping yellow chair just screams Summer. I can already feel the warmth of the sunshine on my face, can you too?
This chair would be perfect for adding a pop of yellow, as an accent colour to any interior space. It will go well with this season’s popular shades of pastels against a white backdrop, but would equally look stunning in darker interiors.
Imagine how this chair would light up a space when set against a slate grey or deep pigment blue wall.
Just when I thought I’d settle for either green or blue, out pops Royal blue (Emoji with a blue heart).
The Kae collection is definitely getting me in the mood for a vacation. I’m picturing the calm of a deep blue sea, perhaps I will dive in and swim amongst the coral reefs. If only such dreams can come true.
I love how this image has been styled, the chair juxtaposed between the old and the new, showing how it would fit in well into the two worlds of interior styles, the period and contemporary.
I’m picturing the sumptuous setting of a grand Downton Abbey style room and the contrast of a clean, modern, nautical theme coastal home or luxury hideout in the Hamptons.
Which style are you?
Those who follow my blog know that I have a soft spot for all things pink.
As far as I know, there isn’t an emoji for hands up in surrender right? Because, that is me surrendering to the desire to purchase this pink beauty for my workspace.
I am in need of a chair upgrade in my study. Not sure who I’m trying to convince, as I know I already am.
This Fuchsia pink chair screams girly glamour. I’m already picturing a glass table with gold accessories and a rounded vase full of fresh pink peonies. I could go on, but maybe I will show you one day (Emoji with a wink).
Just look at them altogether. Beautiful right?
I asked Georgia Metcalfe, the creative director and founder of French Bedroom Company about the inspiration behind the Kae chair collection, and this was her reply ” We wanted to merge the classic style of beautiful French furniture with modern popping bright colours to create wow factor and impact. We didn’t want to have the forgotten chair in the corner”.
She’s certainly right there. This collection is definitely a “wow” and full of “impact”.
The colourful goodness doesn’t just end there. Oh no it doesn’t!
Do you see some lovelies on those chairs? Yes, those are the beautiful new collection handbags from Aspinal of London. Introducing you to The Mini Trunk Clutch in Raspberry Lizard, the Lottie in Orange Lizard and the Grass Green Pebbles.
The wonderful news is that you will have a chance to win one of them. All you have to do is enter your details on French Bedroom Company’s site here.
You’re probably now wondering how did Aspinal of London come to collaborate with French Bedroom company?
I’ve been told that Aspinal came about as they fell in love with French Bedroom company’s Chablis and Rose sofas, which were used for their London Fashion Week 2016 presentation. French bedroom company then found out that Aspinal of London were due to launch these colourful bags around the same time as the chairs. A match made in heaven and the rest is history.
Which one will you pick? I’ve gone for the green.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this post and good luck in the giveaway.
