Lets take a dive deeper in to Molly’s seating area mentioned in Erica’s post yesterday.
Again, the BEFORE -
The AFTER -
We decided that four of these would be perfect in the space since the space was not large and a couch would be a bit awkward with the window on one side and the other side is the hallway in which you enter the house. Also, whenever there is a couch it seems as though no one ever uses all the space so it ends up one person sitting on a large piece of furniture. Might as well have four chairs that will get used.
Next, time to tackle the ottoman issue. When it comes to ottomans the equation of sharp corners + no storage = no bueno with kiddos. Enter this round ottoman WITH storage.
This beauty is from World Market. Isn’t it perfect?? It adds textural interest, no kid finger prints to worry about and has storage.
After the larger elements were decided in the space now it was time to infuse some color in the space. What a better place to do this than the rug? A rug grounds the space and when you have color in your accessories it helps bring the colors all together.
This rug is from Target and perfectly infuses the colors into the space around the other neutral elements.
All in all, I think the seating area featuring a vibrant rug, four beautiful charcoal gray tufted chairs and a hammered round ottoman with storage were the perfect main pieces in making this a great place to ‘take a seat.’
More from Erica tomorrow on accessorizing bookshelves and other areas from the makeover tomorrow!
