So you remember that guy… the one in the image above? Well now that our new space is coming together I am beginning to plan out how to redo him. I plan to document the process since, honestly, I have not done this before. So you guys can either give me tips or simply have a good laugh. I am pretty sure it will come out great but I thought it would be fun for you all to see the process from a newbie.
Today I am going to begin the process of letting you know what is in the future for the little guy. I feel as if the chair should have a name as we go through the process of giving him a makeover…let’s go with…Harry. Harry the Danish Modern chair…sound good? If not oh well we can always change it later.
Every morning I wake up and see Harry I think of all sorts of ways he could be redone. so if you are looking for a good chair don’t assume a modern chair can’t be that for you if you have a more country or shabby chic style. These pieces are classics and can morph easily into anyone’s look with the right textiles and painting or staining. Harry can move in easily I promise!
But I knew I had to be really honest myself and think about my style and what Mike and I like in our space. He is modern rustic and I am classic eclectic. He loves minimalistic design mixed with things that are sturdy and have a story and have masculine tones to them. Where I really love things that are simple, to the point, and don’t clutter. I love strong white lines, things organized well, cleanliness, and for everything to have it’s place. On the other side I love to add in things that are whimsical, handmade, and and have a story. For instance, I found this white ceramic deer and have it on my desk next to my very sleek modern lamp that is stainless steel and has a linen shade. Another for instance is that embroidered pillow sitting on Harry mixed with his clean modern lines.
That all being said I want Harry’s look to have a simple feeling to it but can be packed with punch when paired with the right pillow. Much like these chairs.
