I’m in the mood for serious colour.
I spotted this photo of a ’70′s exercise room and it brought back memories of my first decorating project. An indulgent mother allowed me to create the room of my dreams (at the inspired age of 7) which was comprised of a grass green shag carpet, punchy daisy wallpaper, yellow chintz curtains (for perpetual sunshine!) and a Verner Panton toucan lamp (recently spotted on 1stDibs, I might add). It was sheer heaven and I remember distinct feelings of pleasure every time I walked through the door.
This exercise room with its flock walls, shag carpet, and bespoke ceiling lights makes me smile and I shall perhaps call Stella McCartney the next time I design one, in order to request bespoke workout wear to match our décor.
Tell me about your childhood room…
