My wife and I recently renovated our first home and are in the process of furnishing and decorating it. We love mixing affordable pieces with one-of-a-kind vintage finds. Now you can spend hours scouring flea markets and antique stores or you can check out Chairish.com where people from all over list their vintage furniture for sale. You find, you fall in love, you buy, and you ship it to yourself. Or you can pick it up for free if you’re local to where it’s being sold from. Looking for a vintage kilim rug? Or a mid-century modern sideboard? Chairish has it all. I recently found this nineteenth century accent chair that I fell in love with (center below). One thing led to another and I found so many fun finds that combined to create this eclectic mix of goods that need to make it into my home. I’m not kidding, I need all of these. Should I start a kickstarter campaign?
I would tend to stick to grays and neutrals, hence the grey accent chair being the focal point of this collage, but my wife is into color and she has helped me extend past my drab decor choices. I’m really into this canary yellow right now so I chose items that played well with this bright pop of color. There is something so comforting about this warm yellow that it can make almost any space feel homey. I love the mix of the seemingly stuffy French armchair with the brightly colored kilim rug and the mid-century modern floor lamp. If that’s not fun I don’t know what is. For me, home should be a collection of things that signify your personal style and this room couldn’t be more me. It’s stylish but doesn’t take itself too seriously–me in a nutshell. A site like chairish is the perfect place for anyone wanting to create a space that feels unique theirs. Make sure you check out Chairish and let me know what you find in the comments section!
