Thinking Pink

bubble-gum pink velvet

I love my pink chair- I have nick-named it "mommy's time-out chair"

I find that I move in color phases, my last home was yellow and red, when we moved in to this house, four years ago, I was in a grey and blue phase, lately I have been thinking pink.  I guess this all started as I was looking for a bold fun fabric to finish the last piece in my living room, which is grey-blue, navy-blue, and turquoise.  I decided that I needed a statement fabric for the wing chair in the back corner and I looked long and hard for the right blue fabric.  I never found it, but I did find bubble-gum pink velvet!

The chair was delivered last week and it is so perfect, just what I needed, a bright, bold, pop of color. Now I am obsessively looking pink accessories of all types, and they are not easy to find, to tie the chair into the rest of the room, and I need a pretty soft grey or blue pillow to tie my pink chair back to the room.

I was lucky enough to inherit this chair from my parents when they sold their home, I have seen and purchased a few for clients on craigslist or at flea markets that that can then be reupholstered to give you basically a brand new chair. If you are looking for new most major furniture brands have similar wing back chairs.
