If money were no object, I would hire an interior designer. But for now I'm just going to have to wing this on my own, but of course any ideas or feedback on this subject is MOST welcome.
You all know that the weatherboards will be painted white (with just a little black here and there) but I don't want the interior to take on a monochromatic look, so I have been considering adding some pops of colour - and my colour of the moment is YELLOW. I've been putting together several mood boards which I find really helpful.
Now normally I would not be so brave as to select a colour for a piece of furniture - I always go for something safe, but I am loving this bright yellow chair from Thonet for the dining area:
My initial choice was this DSW chair in black:
which I thought was a good option as it is a) easy to wipe down, b) won't show dirt and grime and c) masculine (remember this is a male dominated household after all.)
But I thought that the yellow chairs will add a certain cheeriness at the breakfast table each morning which I hope will set the mood for the rest of the day.
I thought of taking the same colour scheme into the living room as well:
Would you buy brightly coloured dining chairs or would you save this colour for accessories only?
