I’m just itching to give this room a much more modern look and feel. This chair is the starting point. The next step will be painting the walls. Right now it’s a tan/beige color, kind of boring, but practical and neutral. It’s been this color for almost 10 years, it was the first room we painted in the house. And as boring as beige is, I think I’m going to stay boring and paint the whole room a crisp white. Our dining room is a dark charcoal grey and I think this would be a nice bright contrast. What do you think? I love color, but I think a white backdrop will be a fresh way to showcase colorful pieces like my green and gold geometric pillow.
I am beyond excited and totally in love with my new chair. He is just so handsome, I kind of want to name him. We don’t buy furniture very often and he was an investment, so this little guy is going to be part of the McConnel family for quite a while. Over a year ago I sold the green chair that used to sit in that corner of my living room on Craig’s list. And ever since, I’ve been saving my pennies to get this West Elm Sweep chair. I got it in performance velvet in the color Shadow.
