{colour inspiration: daffodil silk}

Sometimes all it takes to bring a new, ultra-chic energy into a room is a few sun-drenched accessories in shades of canary and daffodil . . .

Have much more fun at work {above} with a Ray and Charles Eames Soft Pad Chair, comfortably beautiful in happy yellow leather.

A vibrant painting {this one is by Andrew Spence}, an Eero Aarnio Cognac chair, and cushions from Marimekko bring a sense of play to a modern, all-white bedroom.

Drift off with elegantly blissful dreams in a Parisienne bed upholstered in daffodil silk. {Ochre bedside lamp.}

WOW G,

It's me - El cheeky.

I am now convinced that you have a background in photo manipulation and that this is your full time job as your magazine shots are AMAZING whenever you load them up - so clear and not at all grainy. These are beautiful

It is so interesting that many of the tones that were SO grounded in the 60s are now coming back into vogue.
