Project For

A few weeks ago Holly from Chairish  contacted me to see if I wanted to create a room using one of their chairs.  This sounded like fun, so I said yes.  These are great vintage furniture pieces!

I had to learn to use Polyvore and now that I know how, I will be using it again, I'm certain.

I was given a choice of chairs to choose from - here are a few.

I thought these were interesting and could be fun.

I chose the blue french accent chair because I have been influenced this year my Marian at Miss Mustard Seed.  I love her style, even though it's not my own, and I decided to play with this chair and create a room that looked like it had inherited furniture.

You know like in Downton Abbey where their house is furnished with pieces that belonged to nearly every Earl who lived there including art work.

This is what I came up with - some old, some new.

Well made, well loved, well used.

What do you think?


  1. I like it! And I have a chair that has similar lines. I like the way you tried something beyond your usual style.

  2. What fun!! Yes, the blue chair does look Miss Mustardseed-ish, and you created a lovely room. :)
