Chairish Styleboard

About a week ago, I was contacted by a really sweet gal named Holly about possibly participating in a posting event for the company she works for, Chairish.  Chairish is new to me, but I am so thrilled that I found out about it.  It is a curated online store for vintage and used furniture, home accessories, jewelry, etc.  They also carry a huge selection of rugs, all of which are super unique and really beautiful.  They have the most incredible things, and I had a blast perusing the shop — there was hardly anything that I wouldn’t want for my own home.

Holly asked if I would select a rug from a file that she sent me containing some really amazing ones, and then create a room around it.  Knowing how much I love making styleboards, I couldn’t say no.  🙂

This is the rug I chose.  The deep blues and turquoises really drew my attention, and immediately I was inspired.

I also found this sofa on the Chairish website, and I love it’s traditional lines and linen-y white color.  I thought it would be a pretty mix with the more contemporary vibe that the rug lends.

And then, the clouds opened up and the angels starting singing, because I found this chair.  Perhaps the most perfect chair for this rug.  This traditional chair is updated with super-modern fabric and piping in a contrasting color.  The perfect balancing piece for my room.

And here we have it.  🙂  For the furniture, I kept it all pretty traditional with touches of the modern turquoise color.  The legs all have a little bit in common with one another.  And I loved how that console table mimics the squares on the rug — perfect three-dimensional design!

For accessories, I pulled some blues out of the rug that I thought worked and were pretty.  And brass metal accents give this living room an updated, contemporary feel while still being a nice old-European throwback.  I tried to blend different styles, textures, and eras for a really well-rounded, collected-over-time look.

Thanks so much to Holly and Chairish for asking me to participate.  I had a blast!
