Close-Up: Shocking Pink Chairs

Close-Up: Shocking Pink Chairs

One of our favorite elements of Claire's London apartment is the hot pink chair that gives her pale, calm Victorian living room a shot in the arm.

The Art Deco chair was her grandmother's. But when her beloved cat clawed its original hessian fabric to death, she made a bold move and reupholstered it in this shocking pink, just the bit of bright color needed to keep her living room fun and keep the vintage pieces from looking too granny-ish.

Here's another hot pink chair in the stylish West London flat we visited recently.

And a little natural inspiration in the form of a hot pink tree spotted on Westbourne Grove.
