OPTION 1: Keep It. I'm not sure what you'd call this color but according to Chloé it's "sunflower- yellow" ...love the color but not sure how I feel about the crushed velvet.
I inherited a pair of these chairs from my Great Aunt and have been contemplating reupholster them. At first I didn't really like the color but now, after 2 years of living with them, it's really starting to grow on me. Most of the furniture in my apartment is neutral - light grey linen sofa, jute rug, carrara marble tulip table, chocolate brown leather ottoman - so these chairs add a nice dose of color to the space. I 've decided to keep the walls of my apartment white (thanks to your great comments!) so now I need to focus in on a design scheme and color palette. For that I turn to fashion.... OPTION 2: Go (charcoal) Grey. This look from the J. Crew Fall 2011 lookbook pretty much sums up my style. A classic blue tailored oxford, a textured coat and an amazing chocolate brown leather bag (the same color as my ottoman). I like this option BUT it might be too safe.
OPTION 3: Go Green! A bold choice but I love it. To break it down, white shirt = white walls, green skirt = green velvet chair, black shoe straps = black lampshades...you get where I'm going?
So now I ask you, dear readers, which look do you prefer? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
