We took the small wicker chair from the Family Room ---
It does not neccesarily "match" but it looks good.
When you put furniture together they do not have to all "match"---
infact it is better if they don't ---
But you want them to LOOK GOOD together.
The same wall AFTER---notice the large lamp in the corner,
it stayed in the very same spot.
We took twigs from the yard --- they are a little wild!
(We ran out of time to trim them up before the picture, but you get the idea.)
Also notice the green leather chair we found in the office.
It goes great in this room.
BLUE and GREEN
and tied in those colors around the space.
This corner BEFORE
Feel how cozy it is AFTER
A nice conversation area with some lighting and greenery.
Also --- see how having space around the furniture,
not having it right up against the wall --- gives the illusion of more space.
AFTER -- This space is now inviting and comfortable.
Notice the pillow with the blue and green,
it matches the pillow on the green leather chair.
In this BEFORE the wall was full ---
without a focal point to rest your eye.
In this AFTER shot the black cabinet becomes a very nice focal point, and feels really good next to the green wall.
These two little framed pieces were in the family room on the mantle.
The little tree was in the entry way.
It can be like a treasure hunt---
Now go find treasure at your house!
