This before and after is from Julie Richard at Shelter design blog. She totally transformed this vintage Chippendale chair with a vibrant blue. Daring I know! But it works. The color lets the chair become a great focal point in the room and it accentuates the details. And you could change the color if you decide to give it a new home in a different room or change your color scheme altogether. Don’t we all need a little color in our lives?

I found lots of goodies at The Barn in Castle Rock on Sunday! This place is a treasure trove a vintage finds and everything is a bargain. It wish I had a truck I would stock it up every time I went there. Note: circle thru the place at least twice I always miss things the first time.
Mother nature teased us again this week. We had sunny and 70 degrees one day and 30 degrees and 12 inches of snow the next! Ahh springtime in Denver. But I’ve got outdoor living areas on my mind and I can’t wait to take it outside. Happy Weekend!
Eclectic: selecting what appears to be best in various doctrines, methods, or style. Mixing styles in design is something you see more and more in design these days. As design evolves certain pieces stick around because they are “good” design. Go ahead mix new and old but do so with thought. Keep a pattern and color consistent to pull a cohesive look together.
