Every home and every space can use a little pop of color. Whether it be a subtle pop that your eye sneaks off to real quick or a pop that leaves you starring while forgetting everything else is in the room. Lately what we noticed trending are bright colored chairs. We’ve seen all kinds of styles and designs, but what really caught our attention were painted bamboo chairs. They’re right up our alley! Bamboo chairs go hand in hand with coastal-beach themed decor, so if we can elaborate and put a new twist on them, why not? We found our favorites from around the web and we want to share them with you. Try to not to focus on the space that the pieces are set in because not all of them are quite our style.

What’s a Lonny, you say? Well, we’re so glad you asked! Over here we love pouring ourselves over new decor magazines. Named after the hometowns of its two creators (LONdon and New York), Lonny is one of the more lovable web-based shelter mags. We’re very excited to say that after a few month hiatus, Lonny is back in action! This comes on the heels of the announcement that the previously kaput Domino Magazine, a Conde Nast publication, comes back to newsstands mid April.
The content is well curated and includes house tours of public figures and nobody’s, alike. Some may say the style in general leans a little “East Coast” for our West Coast minds, but we welcome inspiration from anywhere! What do you think? Are you in love with Lonny?!
