Last week I was approached by Chairish to feature one of their chairs in a holiday post. Chairish is a fun resource for stylish vintage pieces at truly affordable prices. The idea is to showcase how I would incorporate this chair into a neutral room and then add in my personal holiday flair.
This is the chair that I opted to work into my design.
It has been an easy challenge for me because I love this chair. The difficult part was deciding what room to put it in. It is just so versatile.
For the purpose of this post. I decided to add it to our black, white and copper living room.
But the rest of the year I think it would feel right at home bringing some spice and life to our black and white library.
I would pair it right here with my writing desk.
Adding color is my favorite thing to do but as everyone was getting on the neutral bandwagon a few years ago I found myself rethinking how I wanted our home to look. It went against my color evangelist style but I edited a lot of the color out of my rooms and went with a classic black and white theme.
This is how that look played out during the holidays.
Although it looks rather gold here the look was really just black and white. The only color was the greenery of the garland. It was decorated with white lights and an off white tulle.
The fireplace mantel also stayed with the black and white theme.
I have to say that I learned to embrace this minimal look but when Chairish asked me to introduce their chair and some color into my design I was all over it.
This was my concept.
Changing up the mantel from last year's black and white theme was also easily achieved with the addition of greenery laden with brightly colored ornaments.
Carrying this color scheme throughout the front rooms of the house helps to create a cohesive feel.
Holiday throws and pillows are another fall back idea for introducing color into a room
or tying Christmas ribbon into bows on interior doors is a thrifty way to flaunt your holiday spirit.
It doesn't have to be difficult or expensive to bring in color or that festive touch. Add a pillow, tie a ribbon on the ordinary, or drape a bit of garland or lights over a window or across the top of a piece of furniture.
I hope you found something here that you can incorporate into your home.
Happy Holiday Decorating!
