Inspiration Can Be Found Anywhere

I suppose it is not any surprise that I found a little inspiration on the Peter Pan ride at Disney, as Peter Pan is my fav and of course it is set in lovely London.  We went on this ride a couple of times and the second time round I tried to snap a picture but no luck (thanks to flickr, here is a look).  I love the nursery walls.  How could I not?  Raspberry and hot pink.  And in fact… I thought it would make a most lovely powder room.  What do you think?  I got looking around and remembered this gorgeous chair that Anna had done for Black & Spiro which reflects the same color scheme.  Isn’t it fabulous (does anyone know the name of this fabric by chance?)?
Ps- the actual chair above is available for purchase and is on SALE over at Black & Spiro.  If you are interested you can contact Anna here.

    I love the way you have put these two images together – such fun to find inspiration in unlikely places. I always loved the ‘tea cup ride’ for the colours and the swirls! xv.

    I am OBSESSED by this fabric, and am saving up to have a chair reupholstered.

    Thanks for your lovely blog!
