I‘m joining with Tracy today over at Comfort and Luxury for a fun and friendly little competition (not really a contest, just the fun part) choosing a chair and putting together a design board for it. The guidelines are this: There were 2 to choose from and I opted to use the Antwerp chair, cause it was just so darn cute, with it’s classic frame and funky fabric. I love the combo! I threw this together really quick without a lot of time put into it, so keep that in mind too. 🙂
The Antwerp chair from Anthropologie
And the Bertram chair from Anthropologie. We were to choose ONE of these and design an inspiration board around it.
Now, you’ll notice I didn’t necessarily go for the budget on this, since it was make-believe and pure fantasy, but I think this is a really whimsical room. Maybe not one that I’d want to live with long term, but I had fun putting all of these elements together. That wall color would be way to bright to live with in real life personally, but it looks good with the chair. Check out that whimsical chandelier though, I thought it was perfect with the chair.
You can click on the board to go directly to Polyvore and see all the pieces in the set and where they came from:

And if you’d like to see what others came up with, go on over to Tracy’s and check them all out. I think it will be fun to see how we will all interpret differently the same piece of furniture and make a statement with it.
This friendly competition was started by PK, a fairly new blogger that I’ve just recently met, at Room Remix, and she passed the hosting to Tracy this week. Check out her blog too, they are both very fun!
Tomorrow is the BIG DAY at the Holiday House! I look forward to seeing some of you there. It’s going to be fantastic. Lots of pics to come!
