Making it Yours (MIY) is all about using the furniture you have in new ways and taking pieces with you throughout your life. In this edition of MIY, our fictional homeowner has moved from a home with a breakfast nook and room for four to a new home where the chairs will have to be split up. We’ve already seen the chairs in a home office, graphic bedroom, and vintagey bathroom.
Now we’re seeing the fourth and final chair gracing an entryway.
The has the same angles and facets as the chair, and the have just enough of the warm sand color on them to tie in the brass finish of the light. The and are simple enough to not compete with the rest of the room, and the would be an excellent catch-all near the door. The is adorable, and the add just the right amount of pattern. Dark grey and blue/grey walls finish off the entryway.
Making it Work for You
I know that the Blu Dot chair is fairly taste-specific. I like it (obviously), but some of you didn’t. The whole idea of Making it Yours though is that you can take a piece that you love, and keep using it in different ways and at different points in your life.
Let’s say for example that you love Chippendale chairs. The accompanying furniture and paint colors may change, but the MIY concept still applies. Here’s an alternate version of the entryway.
The chair is from , and the paint color, , , and have changed. The concept is the same, yet the look is very different. I hope that gives you some ideas for how Making it Yours can work for you!
