Hey! Remember me? I’ve got a post for you today. I can’t believe it’s been a month since I stopped by here. I also can’t believe Felix is almost one. ONE! And my mind will really be blown when he’s 30. But for now, it’s one. A whole, entire year. Amazing. Feeling so many feels. I’m going off on a tangent though. The real reason I’m checking in is because Chairish asked me to participate on a white to bright chair challenge, we’ll call it.
And if you don’t know Chairish they’re like an ebay meets craigslist minus all the junk and poorly photographed pieces. It’s a space for design and furniture lovers to buy and sell cool furniture, accessories and art. Rejoice!
The goal was for bloggers to pick a favorite chair off a list provided by Chairish and create a styleboard around this chair. It’s supposed to express color and steer away from an all neutral scheme.
I picked a danish teak lounge chair upholstered in a hot pink raspberry tweed fabric. How bold. The masculine lines keep it from feeling super feminine. I got a sense of energy off the color and think it’d make a really cool accent chair. A chair to lounge in, hence the name, to sit and read. But knowing me, it’s say you’re gonna read and end up on your phone.
While the rest of the items in this reading vignette are fairly neutral, I picked accessories to offset and contrast the statement chair, leaving the chair the star of the show.
The pink sea urchin art, complements the hot pink chair without being matchy.
The dark blue pillow adds contrast and brings in some pattern while not competing with the geometirc pattern on the nuetral rug.
The brass floor lamps warms up the bright chair.
It’s all about the balance.
Anyone who has a hot pink chair in their home is eff yoo en FUN in my book.
