You know when you have an idea in your head of how you want something to look ? In this case, a retro style chair, bought a few years ago that needed a bit of colour loving, I felt. But nothing jumped out at me for a while. My all time favourite colour is turquoise so eventually and luckily Clarke & Clarke sent over some of their latest samples recently which led me to one of their latest prints – Chico.
The Chico design is from their Zanzibar collection, inspired by Spice Markets, full of bold geometric patterns embroidered on linen, teamed with rich jacquards and bold plains. The Aqua that I chose to use is one of several palettes that form this contemporary range – the others are charcoal, indigo, sunset and fuchsia.
Although I say contemporary, actually, I see this particular pattern as quite retro and ideal for the chair – that’s what I love about design – it’s all relative.
I made a little bright pink velvet cushion to match the flamingo print – and to finish the overall look. After that I sat down and drank that hot chocolate in my favourite Vera Wang at Wedgewood cup and saucer. :)
Hope you like the new look chair ? What’s your favourite colour ? Let me know by leaving a comment or tweeting @lucylovesyablog. Would love to hear from you.

I was sent this fabric for the purpose of this post. All opinions my own.
