What do you do with those empty little corners of your room? Don’t forget to take a look at them for possibilities.
Do you have a spot that you can add a little desk and chair to make it cozy and interesting? This is in our downstairs den and instead of leaving this corner empty, I added in a yardsale desk that was painted black. I did have a simple wicker chair here that you can see in the first pic, but recently upgraded and found this pretty snazzy number at Homegoods. And you know how much I love that place. Great way to add a little style to a corner and have extra seating too.
They had several fabrics in this style to choose from (they are meant to be dining chairs), but I loved the tight pattern of this leopard print and there is a hint of aqua in the background. The pillow, from Petit Coterie Etsy shop and the aqua Southern Living at Home vase are trade outs/gifts from former advertisers. Thank you both!
Gotta love that nailhead trim.
I stopped in Pier one and found these really cute wooden sticks for $3 per bundle, so I got 2 of them and they add some nice height to this corner along with texture. Wall color in here is Sherwin Williams Believable Buff, a great neutral with just a little golden/yellow tone.
Texture is a very good thing to sprinkle around a room. Mix those textures up for much more interest in your space.
- Bamboo and wood
- Shiny seashells
- Nubby linen fabrics
- Gleaming silver or golden bronze
- Rough vs. smooth
That’s what mixing up textures is all about and your space will be better for it.
Do you have an empty corner that’s just begging for a style makeover?
