Musical Chairs

Hello everyone!
 
This week has been so dark and rainy that it has been hard to get good pictures.  So, if my pictures look a little grainy, it's because I had to lighten them so you could see them!  Ha! 
 
I moved a few chairs around recently.  With my effort to move some black in to my family room and sitting room, some chairs ended up in different rooms.
 
This black bergere style chair that my mom gave me is now in my family room.
 
 
I love the pop of black it gives this room (especially for the cooler months coming). 
 

 
More than that, I love the added seating it provides next to the fireplace that will one day be lit!
 
 
The chair that used to be in here is much smaller and fit in the sitting room just fine.
 

I have really been enjoying my rooms flowing together as one.  It sure does make changes easier! 
 
 
The large finial on the white dresser was brought in to bring a pop of black in this room.  It was in a bronze color and I painted it black. 
 


One other item that moved was this bench.  It used to be at the kitchen table, but I decided to move it in the dining room instead.  I'll share with you what moved in it's place at another time. 
 
See?  It feels like musical chairs around here! 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Kelly, I love your pops of black! I feel like we've traded places. In my last house, I did all neutrals with touches of black and chocolate brown. Your home is beautiful! LOVE the chair from your mom!

Good idea to put that black chair by the fire place. Your family is most likely going to fight over that one! The pops of black look so nice.

Shirley@Housepitality Designs said...

The chair looks great in the room...just love what you are doing with the pops of black...really grounds the room...don't you just love "musical chairs"??!!...I know what you mean about the gloomy days...it always seems that when I am ready to photograph and need to get a post out, the day is gloomy!!!...Can't wait to "hear the music" again Kelly....

CAS said...

I'd say your "musical chairs" had a very happy ending. Isn't it amazing how just moving something from here to there can make such a difference? You home is so lovely!

The black chair is the perfect addition. Beautiful rendition of musical chairs, Kelly.
