Bright & Fun Room Inspiration with Chairish

I have a fun post for you today! The great people at Chairish contacted me, and asked me to create a styleboard inspired by one of their bright accent chairs, you can see all the accent chairs they have to choose from here. For those of you who don't know, Chairish is an online retail shop that "makes it fun and easy for design lovers to buy and sell pre-loved decor to one another". Their website is packed full of all types of curator-approved home decor, and there are new items added everyday. This is definitely one of those sites that you can get yourself lost in for awhile, there is so much fun stuff to see!

So today, instead of sharing how I have decorated a space in my own home, I am sharing a styleboard of how to take a space from dull and colorless to bright and fresh with just a few items.

 I pictured this space being a small casual area in a master bedroom, or an out of the way area just off of a main living space. A nice, but casual place to sit down and relax, maybe catch up on a magazine or two. 

I selected this pair of high-back tufted Broyhill chairs is this fun limey green color from the Chairish collection for my inspiration. These chairs are focal points and investment pieces of the space, so I kept the accessories for the space budget friendly. I brought in more of my favorite colors in the accessories; a gorgeous blue and a nice neutral gray. 

I chose to use the neutral gray in a rug to ground the space and keep it from getting too busy. Bringing in a dark wood table provides some visual weight, and by mixing styles of the furniture you get that "collected over time" feel. There's nothing that makes a room feel more staged and forced than having a grouping of all perfectly matching furniture. You want your space to look lived in, not like you just tore a page out of a catalog.

The accessories bring in the fun touches of color, and are also the easiest way to change up your space. I picked a couple of bold cobalt pillows to add to the chairs. And a fun octagonal bowl in the same blue, to fill with mossy stones to bring the colors together and add a natural element to the space. Keeping these pieces inexpensive makes it easy to change up the feel of the space without breaking the bank.

What did you think of this space? Do you have a room in your home that would be perfect for a bright and fun accent chair?
