Colouring my life

I'm all jet lagged. I hate it. Its 4am and I have been awake for a couple of hours now dreaming about all the wonderful things I could have if money grew on trees. I've been dreaming about the direction I want to take the design on our home. We have some money aside that people gave us as gifts for our wedding and we have decided that we are going to put it towards and new dining room setting. After much research on my behalf, going from Eames Eiffel bases with a vintage table, to stock standard IKEA settings, Jarrod and I have finally agreed on a setting style that will reflect who we are.Different coloured Thornet Bentwood chairs with arm chairs at either end of a worn oak table. And I feel that it is the perfect inspiration for the future design development of our home.first image from here

  2. Hi Gabrielle,

    Just stumbled upon your blog; really great stuff!
    Just a small note; the chairs above are the No.18, Le Corbusier, and Chucho, by Thonet, not Thornet.
    The No.18 and Le Corbusier are available in Australia from Thonet; 1800 800 777.

    All the best,

    Ella.
