Are you an organised home renovator? Someone who finishes a room before moving on to the next one or do you always have multiple projects running at the same time? At the moment I’ve for three rooms vying for completion; the living room, the office and one of the spare bedrooms and they keep overtaking each other. Or rather, months go by where I get nothing done…please tell me I’m not alone?
Our current guest room is nearly there though. It’s turning into a beautifully cosy space and we have a sofa bed in here for guests until we actually properly renovate the dedicated guest bedroom. One piece I’d been looking for for our back bedroom was a chair to go in the bay window, which overlooks the back garden.
With our colour scheme of greys, pinks and duck egg blue (plus a slightly crazy wallpaper on one wall), I’d been after a pink chair for a little while but hadn’t found what I was looking for. Then a few weeks ago I came across the amazing interiors selection at Sue Ryder (who’da thought?) and discovered the scalloped pink velvet chair of dreams.
I wrote a blog post featuring some of my fave picks from the Sue Ryder website and felt very humbled when the team got in touch offering me a chair for our home and it’s literally like a dream come true. I have my own little bit of art deco in our house, reminiscent of Jay Gatsby’s finest guest room I’m sure.
The scalloped detailing is so pretty and the cushion comes off with a zippable cover which is perfect considering Boo has already commandeered it as his own. Honestly, new furniture lasts precisely 5 minutes in this house before he gets his little paws on it. Finishing off the pink velvet chair are four black legs with gold tips, adding another little bit of understated glamour.
It’s also very comfortable despite its diminutive stature and I can well imagine sitting here working or reading and being able to relax in full view of the garden. Plus it makes the room a little more homely for when we do have guests and we can also move the chair downstairs as and when we need to if visitors come round.
I was also amazed by how reasonable the prices are with Sue Ryder – this chair retails at £149 and is fantastic value for money. It also comes in soft grey, jewel green and royal blue. And most importantly of all, 100% of profits from Sue Ryder sales help provide their palliative, neurological and bereavement support.
If that isn’t reason enough to shop with them whilst also picking up a beautiful piece for your home then I don’t know what is. Happy shopping home lovers!
