Chairish Challenge

Are you familiar with Chairish?

A treasure trove of unique, high quality, pre-loved home furnishings and decor.
Chairish is a great on-line resource for buying or selling such pieces and the site is easy to navigate. Searches can be done by the piece, style or city, further narrowed by price, maker, 
color and shipping options.

There are so many interesting offerings, I could loose track of time wandering the Chairish website!

A challenge was presented to me by Chairish of choosing an accent chair and creating a bold, 
bright room around it.
This pair of quirky vintage Broyhill chairs in lime green caught my fancy...

In searching and discovering Chairish, I also found this fabulous rug, perfect for the look I was envisioning.

Nothing is more fun than designing a room where the sky is the limit and budget is no issue. 
My aim was a neutral, yet textural background 
with a high voltage dose of color delivered with the chairs, the rug and a glorious piece of art.

The rug inspired a collected, global feel, achieved with interesting textiles like the Hmong homespun pillows and the Moroccan Wedding poufs.
A simple, classic sofa, a few other Mid-Century pieces and 
this room came together as I had hoped.

What do you think? 
Go check out Chairish 
and leave a comment 
telling me what accent chairs you would choose 
to create a bright, colorful space!


Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design?  I would love to work with you to help your room "feel better."

Those chairs remind me of the one that you made over in one of your recent projects. Love that green! I recall hearing about Chairish through Emily Henderson so it's fun to see you give it a review. I'll have to do a little more research. Skies the limit budget is always fun!

Such a unique rug and I love those chairs. You've put together a cool space. Don't you wish very budget was "sky's the limit"? :)

I love that you were inspired to design the space with such bright happy colors! A welcome change since everyone seems to tone it down for the fall...Bring on the bold hues!

If you have a moment, would love to get your thoughts on my latest design!

Peace. Love. LOL!
