Dynamic Red & Blue Family Room

Chairish is an online consignment marketplace for design obsessed people to buy and sell exceptional pre-owned home furniture and decor. Chairish's mission is to make the world more beautiful, one room at a time and save people money in the process.  Chairish.com makes it fun and easy to buy and sell pre-loved decor to one another. Their shop exclusively features curator-approved treasures in a full-service and trustworthy environment.

Chairish recently contacted me and asked me to choose one of their vintage chairs and create a room around it that was bright and full of color. This challenge was right up my alley and I gladly accepted! I love bright, vibrant colors and there is nothing more fun for me than designing a room!

They offered several chair options that spanned traditional to modern.  To shop Chairish's selection of accent chairs click here. I chose the Vintage Red Pod Chair as the starting point for my room.  This chair is comfortable for lounging yet firm enough for upright seating and I liked the angular lines of the legs.  

The color red gives out a high energy vibe, creates a strong first impression, and in rooms, brings people together. Perfect for a family room.

My goal was to create a room that was modern and inviting.  I selected a neutral sectional sofa and then added more pops of red on the windows and with a throw pillow.  The blue area rug, side and console tables add a comforting touch to the room.  Pairing reds and blues gave the room a dramatic effect.  

This was such a fun project and I love how it turned out!   What do you think?

  1. I love that red chair and red happens to be my favorite color. I agree that it looks great in a family room. My mom's sofa is identical to the one you chose in an off-white leather. And all her accessories and paintings for the family room are in red and maroon. Quite pretty I must say. =)

    Thanks so much for your E-Mail (I will get back to you this weekend). Enjoy the Weekend, Jill!

  2. Well that's super fun! Cute room!
