I added a black and white patterned fabric to the bottom of the curtain panels and some nail head trim to the chair. Then I layered in some abstract art (courtesy of my son when he was 2), a throw, and a pillow.
It's amazing what just a few small changes and accessories can make.
The pillow is from a local shop here in Lexington called Street Scene. It's made from vintage fabrics. I'm obsessed with the horse print! I know you're not surprised.
The nail head trim is sort of hard to notice, but in person it really does add something special to this chair (that we've had for years).
The canvas painting was done by my son when he was 2 years old. I'll never forget the day he painted this canvas as it's the last memory I have of being a mother to just one child. I was 8 months pregnant at the time and 2 weeks later my daughter was born.
The fabric that I used here and here I actually purchased because I wanted to add a little length and pattern to the curtain panels in this room. I used no-sew tape and it took all of maybe 10 minutes per panel.
I love the way the patterns play together.
So, have you been playing with color? Lately I seem to be drawn to mustard and red. What colors are calling your name right now?
