A record of all things home here at our house in South West London.
Saturday, 6 March 2010
Great song, tricky colour. This fabric is still haunting me along with the TOAST cushions that I should have just ordered when I saw them. I haven't made it into London to hunt down something similar. I only have one day a week that my youngest is in nursery all day and this week I did Ikea in the hope that they would have the perfect yellow cushion. Nope. So I hit all the shops locally to see what I could find. Wandering into Debenhams, I spotted a flash of yellow! Sold. Not velvet fabric, but the shade of yellow looked promising. 20% off the already reasonable £15. But they are the wrong yellow.
I am also not sold on having two of them. SO back they go. They are really a canary yellow, and I want an acid yellow.
But I do have a bit of the right shade of yellow in the house.
I have had these over two weeks now and they are still gorgeous. I love the yellow against the grey vase.
Speaking of grey, as I couldn't track down the Chanel Particuliere nail varnish I bought these:
OMG the Berlin is just hideous. I took a photo of my nails varnished in Berlin but there is no way I am posting it as it was really rather cadaver'esque'. When did my hands start looking so old??? I put the Minsk on my toes and it is quite nice, it is a very dark grey and quite cool but not really something I would wear on my hands.
So there you go, that is what I have been mulling over on my Saturday. I hope your Saturday was more productive!!
