A little bit of Rhodes on my balcony

Well, it is not a surprise that I do miss my beloved Rhodes island. But untill my next visit I try to create a kind of ‘rhodian’ atmosphere at my home. So I just picked the most basic garden-furniture ever from IKEA: TÄRNÖ chairs and tables, and I painted them with 2 specific colors which I see very often on the streets of the villages of Rhodes island. These two colors were ocher and gentian blue. Of course my love helped me with burnishing the wooden pieces and with disassembling the parts of the furniture, that I would never ever do by myself…

The design itself just happened, I did not think a lot about them. I just wanted to create inverse pieces – as I processed 2 chairs and 2 tables.

Sooo, this is how it happened:

And finally I show you all my inspirations for this project from the lovely, colorful Rhodes island (photos were taken by me in Lachania, Koskinou, Archangelos villages and in the Old Town of Rhodes):
