I discovered this photograph in a Joules mailing that I had received recently and note that it is also featured on their website. I was particularly struck by the combination of colours, in particular the grey, yellow and pink, as I had recently decided to add some pink accents to my dining room scheme.
The colour scheme, primarily yellow, grey, black and white, seemed a little bleak now that the days are drawing in and I wanted to add a little bit of warmth. I took my inspiration from the pots of geraniums that seem to have come on in leaps and bounds on the patio as we enjoy a very mild autumn.
This wicker chair snuggles up close to the radiator and is often a place where I can be found in the early morning with a cup of green tea and a favourite magazine.
To make this corner even cosier I retrieved my favourite pink, red, blue and white check woollen Ikea blanket from winter storage and added this lovely pink felt cushion from Next. The combination of these soft furnishings provides a burst of colour as well as a lovely woven texture.
It amused me that there is a farmyard theme running through both schemes and I now have my eye on some of these gorgeous Joules mugs and plates to complete the look.
So whether your preference is the romantic look of Comfortable Country or the clean lines of Mid-Century style I think these lovely rich colours can work equally well in either setting.
