chair candy

I'm always replying to interior design posts about how much I LOVE colorful interiors, and the writers must think I'm crazy. For one thing, I blog mainly about fashion. For another, if you visit my home I have the saddest wooden Ikea furniture you'll ever see. So I decided to post some proof.

When I was in Versailles last summer, the majority of the photos I took were of candy-colored chairs and outrageously amazing over-the-top rooms.

Sure there were the random photos of light sliding in through windows

and the odd landscape shots

but really it was the great, colorful fabrics and wallpapers that spoke to me.

How amazing would it be to have an interior like these? Makes you question the whole minimalist movement...

After seeing the pics of those chairs and that living room i can see why you take a vacation from fashion and spend the odd weekend inn interior design land - Just amazing! Im in love with those chairs..

All of the great pops of yellow reminds me of seeing all of the citron colors trending for this coming Spring...which brings me to us working in the same industry! Possibly even passing each other this past week at the Javits Center? I used to work for Linea Pelle, the handbag and belt designer, and now I work for a company that's less contemporary and more Bridge, called Lodis. It's still handbags and wallets, really fun stuff! Which store do you work for?

i am an absolute FREAK over interior design. that's the sad part because our house is like the furthest thing from looking designed at all. i think if you're a lover of art you can be a lover of all types of art. :)
