Living room: the final piece?
We all know that design, especially in our own homes, is an evolution, right? And because all of the elements in a room are part of a larger composition, changing one changes, well, everything.
In my living room, bringing in a big painting is going to firm up my desire to change out the rug. (It will go to my girls' bedroom, currently rugless, and start another evolution up there). With a natural rug on the floor in the living room, I'm going to miss the strong hit of the orange, and the strong trellis pattern.
Enter the green Danish chair.
My husband purchased this off craigslist for our house in Brooklyn, and while I actually like the green color of the upholstery, I've always wanted to reupholster it in something with a more sophisticated finish. To bring back the orange and some pattern, I've been looking at fabrics like these.
Okay, that last one is green again. But I love the sort of floral stripe enough to consider staying in the existing color family.
Another alternative? Kantha quilts are on sale at West Elm for $60. I think the big ones offer enough fabric to cover two cushions like these.....I am a big fan of this look, though my gut tells me it will feel oh-so-2012 before I am ready to reupholster again.
For a long time I didn't understand why Domino Magazine was called that. Now, every time I witness one of these domino effects in my planning, I get it! Lonny, on the other hand, I don't really get.
Any evolutions afoot at your home? Oh, and have you seen the "evolve" T-shirt, part of Meg Biram's new limited edition collection, Manifesto?
