I seriously could not be more THRILLED with them!! I feel like the bold splash of peacock blue (not really teal like I called them before) really pulls the whole den/kitchen/breakfast nook together. Which is actually a pretty impressive feat for two wing chairs.
That side of the room really needed some height, so the taller backs of the wing chairs paired with the leaning mirror (formerly in our bedroom) adds some verticality that draws your eye towards our vaulted ceiling.
You may have noticed a few other new additions – like the tripod table between the wing chairs and an aluminum table by the couch (you’ll see it in other photos). Before we got these tables the only surface we had for drinks, etc. in the den was the coffee table – and then we moved the coffee table in front of the other couch (because it looks better layout-wise) so Jason and I didn’t have anywhere to put our food/drinks/feet while we were watching TV, which just wouldn’t do. :) The new tables have been fab!
And, of course, change begets change and now I’m itching for new pillows in the den. :) Isn’t it funny how that happens?
I definitely dig the new view from the kitchen.
And the peacock blue wing chairs balance out the blue from the DIY squiggle art on the other side of the den.
Oh! How could I forget our new pouf and basket?? I’m officially obsessed with the basket – before we got it there were piles of junk all over the coffee table, but now I can just cram everything into the basket and nobody is the wiser. Tricky.
And if I’m really being honest, this is how the room looks most of the time – I have stolen the aluminum side table and claimed it as my computer/drink receptacle, and Jason is a huge fan of the pouf for foot-propping purposes.
What do you guys think?!? Have you made any changes to your home lately that have made you as happy as the new wing chairs have made me? And what about that domino-effect where you make one improvement to the room and suddenly there are a hundred other things you want to change – am I alone on that one?
By the way, I may have made a few other changes in addition to the wing chairs, new layout, basket, pouf, leaning mirror and new side tables. Somebody stop me!
P.S. Happy birthday to my awesome hubby today!!!!
