You know I've been playing around in our family room trying to make it very comfortable and practical. After all, we use our family room the most out of any other room in our home. Yesterday I shared with you the rustic bench that I added in this space to warm it up and add additional texture and interest. I wanted to share another piece of furniture that I added recently to the room. This wicker chair and wicker ottoman repurposed from another room in our house:
This wicker chair is very special to me as it was in my mom's bedroom while she was growing up. It was originally white which I kept for a while then decided to spice it up and paint it black. The ottoman was a more recent find that I found in a natural and painted black to coordinate with the chair.
I am liking the cool elements (blues and greens in the pillows and the art work on the shelves as well as the white slipcovered sofas) in the room as well as the warm, natural tones (tan rug, coffee wall color, brown curtains, wood round tables, grey corduroy ottoman, rustic bench, and brown graphic panel curtains). I like to play with contrasting elements of color, texture, and style.
Happy decorating & living-
PS In some upcoming blog posts I want to share some cheap beach finds I got at the beach recently and how I've spiced up our Eat-In Kitchen.
