Making it Yours (MIY) is all about using the furniture you have in new ways and taking pieces with you throughout your life. The first edition of MIY followed a piece of furniture (the Borghese Dresser) through an imagined life over many years. This time I’m doing it a little differently. A set of four chairs (Blu Dot’s Real Good Chair) will be making the move from a house with a breakfast nook to a new house without. The chairs will be split up and reassigned to a home office, a bedroom, a bathroom, and an entryway.
I’m a little in love with my wallpaper at the moment, so I chose Mibo’s Clacket Lane Wallpaper in cream for this room. Wouldn’t a little wallpapered breakfast nook off of a vintagey kitchen be adorable? I certainly think so.
The room has wood floors and a wood table, so to break up all of the brown, Charcoal Fedora Flor Carpet Tiles would be nice (and inexpensive). More dark accents are added in the Metropolitan Wall Clock and 365+ Brasa Lamp. And finally, a gorgeous Large Coper Bowl from jillrosenwald is added to complete the room.
Next up? We’ll see the chair in a home office.
