As soon as you step inside Colorful you can feel the inspiration and spirit of Eileen Chang (Zhang Ailing, 1920-1995).
The historic Changde apartment, in which the author created her most famous novels, was filled with comfortable chairs and fitted out with books and restaurant facilities to keep the love of literature alive in Shanghai.
Adorned mostly with Chinese books, it is a popular spot for visitors within the busy precinct to come and take a break while reading old classics. If a book is just too hard to put down after enjoying a cup of tea, then all the works are available for purchase.
