my home - makeovers
...recovered my old Ikea swivel chair in 1970s Jonelle fabric, I think the colours tie in perfectly with my original vintage 70s rug from Germany...
I'm on the look out for some new dining chairs. I'm really tempted by these DSW Eiffel chairs from eBay (originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames). But I really love the much less affordable Hestor chairs from Habitat... if I could justify £120 per chair, I would have one in each colour! They're very Dutch in style, so when we visit Holland I'm going to trawl all the local Kringloopwinkels (Dutch secondhand stores) for some similar ones.
I'm also swapping round and making over all the bedrooms which I'll blog about once they're done.
