Hope you had a wonderful weekend! Today is a special post day, as you can see it's not my regular Wednesday post. That is because I have done another challenge with Chairish, choosing an Accent Chair to design a room around from their collection. I had done another challenge with Chairsh in this post here, and it was so much fun I got involved in another one!
This time it was a challenge to design a room around an accent chair. There were a few to choose from and I narrowed it down to 4. There was one that I loved but I felt it was too "my style". I wanted to think as well as challenge myself to think outside the box, I went with something I wouldn't normally choose myself, but that I somehow really liked. This is the one I went with;
I actually really liked this one, and everything ended up going together perfectly. I really loved the intricate designs and carvings in the chair and I wanted to accentuate those throughout the furniture & accessories.
Here is my inspiration;
I loved the romantic feeling the comforter gave, and those drapes that screamed soft french provincial. I loved this vibrant but subtle pastel color palette and that's where the room started to come together in my head.
Here is my college of what I came up with;
If you notice in all of the pieces, they all have carvings & small detailed designs that the chair has as well. The chair also has a French/Medieval style vibe to it and I wanted to pull those characteristics from it, with a feminine romantic flare.
Isn't that bed gorgeous? Big, gray yet romantic and cozy, paired with that ruffled bedding? Perfection right?
I chose to paint the whole room a mint green, shown on this front door. A soft muted mint/blue green I feel was the perfect color to make the room bright, light & fresh.
The white accents such as the credenza, night table & bedding ground the room, tones down all the pastel colors. The blues, pinks, yellows & golds give a subtle yet colorful interest to the space.
That yellow armoire, beautiful right? I saw it and knew it was the one, besides the fact that it has a full length mirror (last minute checks ladies?). The beautiful gold accent carvings are just the cherry on the top.
Finally that spectacular chandelier is what finishes the room off perfectly. Those sparkling crystals, gold charm & lovely patina just give me all the heart eyes.
I would live in this room, an oasis for anyone to getaway after a long, hard day. An escape to another time & era if you will. With all that charm, pink and sparkle who wouldn't right?
Thank you Chairishco for letting me join in on yet another challenge. I always enjoy being challenged and pushing myself to embrace new things & styles. I enjoyed this again so much and it was a lot of fun to get the chance to think outside the box, it's not everyday we get the chance to design rooms we wouldn't usually get the chance to.
What would you have done with this chair? What's your favourite part of the room?
