Any long time readers out there remember when we moved into our new house, and this side of the room looked like this? Soon after we moved in we inherited this chair, desk, and desk chair from my husband's grandparents. I had loved the lines of this chair when we visited, and once they moved out of their condo they generously passed them onto us. I always knew I would make changes to them.
Here is another shot from across the room. We had installed lights at this point, but that was it. Sometimes it's good for me to look back at these photos, especially when I feel like we're not moving fast enough on the changes, to see how far we've come.
Here is the closest picture I have to this same angle. Notice how I totally avoided capturing this corner. ;-)
So back to the corner...
The easiest and least expensive change was to paint the desk and chair.
Then I fell in loooooooooove with this fabric from Domesticate on Spoonflower.
My amazing upholsterer transformed the chair.
Shortly after I found this pillow on 6 Wilson and added it to the corner.
And this lotus stool went on clearance at World Market.
Now the corner is shaping up and I can finally share the improvements.
I added a picture of the grandparents to the desk. I thought it was fitting.
I added some of my favorite pieces and colors for inspiration.
I think it's a major improvement. But when I look at these photos I think I might paint the desk white. We'll see. That's the glory of an evolving home!
So now you've seen the corner I never share.
Are there corners of your home you'd never want the public to see?! What do you think of the changed corner?
