Whilst researching something entirely unrelated today I stumbled upon a selection of ideas for wedding seating.
It was the colour that caught my eye but the ideas themselves are a really clever way of injecting life into an interior. The beauty being the temporary nature of it; with the ideas above and below you can use ribbon or fabric in whatever colour takes your fancy. When you’re bored you can easily remove and use to wrap all your Christmas presents!!

I love rope so immediately loved this concept by association BUT I would definitely paint those chairs navy to maximize the nautical look – you could even paint the rope too!
This is a wedding in a stable. Yep a stable. The photography and styling are making me jealous of the horses. I like the simple use of the blues and oranges to add warmth and sparkle to an otherwise generally industrious environment.

Think we all need to visit a haberdashery….
The real answer to this question is whatever colour you like but I am going to share two brilliant monochrome examples I saw in Milan.
Both examples are tiles but with some paint, masking tape, a ruler and a bit of imagination you can recreate this for a fraction of the cost on a concrete or wooden floor.
A patterned floor, especially in black and white, gives any room the wow factor. Walls should be kept to one colour so as not to detract and over complicate the space. If you already have parquet flooring in a herringbone format you have a template to create the zig zag pattern above, which means a lot less effort at the measuring stage!
Anyone painted a floor recently?
Flicking through Elle Decoration this morning I happened upon this gem of an idea. Simple and effective, as all good ideas should be, it transforms a blank wall.
I particularly love the subtle softness the hand torn edges of that beautiful transluscent pink add to the graphic monochrome. Great shapes too. If you want to recreate (I know I will be) you can buy Japanese washi tape in a whole host of colours from http://www.papermash.co.uk
I think we all know the answer to this one……every colour under the sun!
Took this in South East Asia in January and it still makes me smile – funny how just a selection of coloured objects can do that. I especially like that it makes me think of colour combinations I probably would never have considered.
I have developed a slight obsession with neon of late.
Should I be worried that I bought a florescent pink knit without a second thought?
BUT you can’t deny the instant uplift neon yellow gives this table setting as seen in the Zara Home window display in Milan. Very easy to do, a neon kick doesn’t have to be permanent – add a cushion, ornament or if you’re feeling bold, a piece of furniture.
Above: Another example of Zara’s nod to the growing trend. Also on display during Milan Design week, Society offered a grown up selection of nearly neon bedding. http://www.societylimonta.com/prodotto.php?lang=en&sez=letto&presel=federe&product=93
Considering neon is anything but natural it is strange that it absolutely works when paired with natural materials such as cotton, linen and wood – see above example.
This multifunctional piece looks great against bare concrete -http://www.brosefogale.co.uk/
What are you waiting for? Get your neon on!
