Reupholstered Chair and Ottoman Make a Statement in this Sunroom Redesign

 

Three fabrics as one design has become a trending approach in upholstery.  When it works the fabrics come together making an undeniable statement.  Here all three fabrics compliment one another.  The floral pattern perfectly color matches the coordinating fabrics bringing them nicely together. When choosing your fabrics be careful not to overwhelm your room. For the ottoman only two of the fabrics were used in order to keep the pair cohesive and not too busy. These reupholstered pieces are now the statement in this sunroom.  Be careful to limit your statement pieces as to not talk over one another.  Future choices will now be made in relation to these pieces. Although the color palette has been determined it does not mean that the room should be full of color.  I see some soft color, as in the trending whites and perhaps coral valances over the many windows. Now to make my vision a reality as should you.

Awesome Lamp

Awesome Lamp

I found this lamp in a shop in Wellfleet MA.  I was going to pass this by but I am so glad that I didn’t. I have learned over time that you need to “get it” if it “gets” you.  Accessories are so important to a room. They personalize a room and they complete it.  This lamp is so unique that I would have been searching forever to find another like it.  The colors are the same as the scheme for this room which is unusual to find. The potter, Judith Stiles owner of Judith Stiles Designs, had the forethought to top the lamp with a soft tan shade as to cast a comfortable, diffused light which I always advise my clients to use.  It is wired to accept a 3-way bulb, this is good, as the lamp will primarily be used to low light the corner.  It is so perfect in so many ways. I am so glad that I did not pass it by.

This soothing green can be used in so many ways.  A modern lift to your media or living room pairs nicely with dark wood accents.  Aloe certainly finds a place in your beach decor as well.  Green, always reliable and a favorite of many, will find a place in most homes. Use Aloe or one of its many variations.
