Welcome to Bright.Bazaar, my make-you-smile style corner of the internet. I’ve been sharing my love of beautiful design, feel-good homes, everyday style, inspiring travel and, pretty much everything in between, since 2009. As well as working as a content creator, I write interior design books and edit a bi-weekly e-newsletter called Smile Mail. I live in New York City with my heartmate and can often be found listening to Madonna’s Confessions album and dreaming up my next home renovation project.
Recently, I’ve spotting a lot of colourful dining chairs and it led me to think what an excellent way this is to add colour into a dining space. It’s also an ideal piece of furniture to get crafty with, too. You could paint the chair legs, recover a fabric base using a bright and bold patterned fabric or make a slipcover to use over the whole chair – all would add something new to your space. First up, we see how a white Scandinavian dining room is given a colourful update with primary coloured chairs and stools. The second space shows that you can add colour by doing nothing at all, simply invest in well-worn, vintage wooden chairs; the texture of the wood against the blackboard wall tells a thousand stories. Finally, if you want to inject a dose of fun into your dining room, why not paint some simple, wooden chairs in glossy, neon hues! Which dining chairs would you choose?
