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 Real Good Chairs 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 pendant has the same angles and facets as the chair, and the duck egg stacking boxes have just enough of the warm sand color on them to tie in the brass finish of the light. The console table and mirror are simple enough to not compete with the rest of the room, and the little white dish would be an excellent catch-all near the door. The Haseform Dachshund Coathanger is adorable, and the rug add just the right amount of pattern. Dark grey woven baskets 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 Pieces, and the paint color, hooks, tray, and rug 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!
