Should one want to buy cheap and awful soft goods here, the place to go is a DIY place. Curtains, tablecloths, carpets, they all shout at one: "Look at me! I am from a DIY place!" But sometimes it pays to look, as I do, even at the unlikeliest of places for nice things. I found those cushions, the colours of which match almost exactly my V&B "Switch 4" coffee service, for € 3.99. They are reasonably good quality as well. The funny (peculiar) thing is that a lot of DIY things (or the clothes at cheap clothes stores, for that) are not of bad quality at all, but somehow manage to LOOK the part. DIY chains and clothes discounters are employing, I am sure, designers solely for the purpose of making stuff of fairly decent quality looking somehow cheap and awful.
I think it's quite a nice set of colours for a garden theme.
As the house isn't listed, I intend to have steps built down from the little wooden veranda (which is off the kitchen) to the garden and create a place for outdoor entertaining.
