From White to Bright
Hello, my friends! I hope all is well! What do you think about when you choose a chair for a room? Do you consider scale, style, color? Do you use the chair as a basis for the complete design or do you buy it to fit in your existing space?
I'm honored to again work with the wonderful folks at Charish by a curating room choosing items from their site. Today I am taking a room "from white to bright" using chairs from their fabulous inventory of accent chairs as the focal point. Have you ever heard of the website Charish? It's an online marketplace where you can peruse and shop gently used furniture, antiques, rugs, et cetera! Think Christie's Auction meets Flea Market with the casualness of eBay...easy and fun!
I have decided to create two rooms to demonstrate how choosing an accent chair with a vibrant pattern completely changes the atmosphere of a room. I hope you enjoy!
In this first room with white chairs, there is a calm vibe, which attributes to a space of subtle elegance. The fresh white is soothing, while adding elements of black contributes contrast and interest without being overly fussy.
In this room, you'll note a much more vibrant and punched-up aesthetic, beginning with the bold pattern of the chairs! I don't know what it is about the bold black and white, but I immediately thought a vivid color like red or orange would work fabulously! Pairing those chairs with lively accessories definitely lends to a space that is anything but boring! Add graphic art combining elements of the room and you have a cohesive space that definitely pops!
Which do you prefer? Whatever your style aesthetic might be, starting the room off with a fabulous accent chair is a wonderful way to create your space!
All items in both rooms, via the Charish website. Please see the items individually listed below. If you'd like to be directed to the item, simply click its specific pic! If you'd like to peruse their accent chairs, click the link above or here to be directed.
