Chevron in the Hall

I was looking at the hallway that leads from my living room to my son's bedroom, master bedroom and laundry room.... I have a black and white painting hanging on the wall and I thought that the hall needed just a little bit more color.  So, I added a pink and white chevron chair that was sitting in our much-needed-to-be-cleaned-and-organized master bedroom...

Hall

The chair was my grandma's, she gave it to me... the cushions were originally tufted and the fabric was a burnt orange colored velvet.  I removed the buttons, added extra padding and have recovered it several times since.  The current fabric on the chair is a pink and white chevron print... I used this print when we lived in VA (in the entry way) and I think the chair will stay this way for a while....I really like pink :)

With all that pink, there's now a little more color in the hall when looking in from the living room....

... and I have a new place to sit while folding laundry!

  15. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is great blog. A great read. Liga Inggris
