The Traveling Chairs ...

Pin It!
Not too long ago, I scooped up these awesome chairs from World Market, knowing that they'd be perfect in our SITTING room! 


TA DAAAAAA!  Don't they look great in our DINING room?  LOL ... oops, sitting room ... please don't be too upset!


You know you've been there ... buying a piece you know would be perfect in a certain spot, only to get it/them home and place it/them somewhere else instead!  

They really are rather fun in here ... love the texture they add:


They're super comfy, especially with added pillows perched on them that match our new curtains!  


While you're in here, you can see our buffet with its simple vignette:




To tie in with the mustard yellow in the print on the sideboard, I added a yellow plate (had on hand) to two of our floating shelves:


Chunky candlesticks that used to be bronze were painted with both Old White (Annie Sloane) and Smoky Mountain (CeCe):


There, that's better!


I also pulled a couple of platters I had tucked away and placed them on the wall in the corner:


While I LOVE our new chairs in the dining room, I have a feeling they'll be traveling all over our house, including our sitting room someday!


Don't you just love your pieces that travel, too?

Thanks for stopping by,

Very pretty! I have seen wicker chairs in dining rooms on Pinterest and I love the look. You did great with the placement. I definitely want to add some to our next home. At this rate maybe I should get some now. Ha, who knows when our actual moving day will come around. The entire room looks amazing!

I LOVE the chairs in your dining room and you're right, they add just the right amount of texture. Your dining room is beautiful! I really like the tureen perched atop the cake stand. Would it be a bother to ask where you got it? I love it and I've been wanting a beautiful new, white tureen to match all my white dishes and accessories.
Thank you and keep those beautiful decorating adventures coming!

Oh I just love those chairs you found! They look perfect at your dining room table too. I like a mix of chairs at the table. Keeps things fresh! I think white spaces need texture and those chairs definitely give that. Yes, I can relate to planning on things going somewhere only to use them in a completely different area once I get them home. Happens often, I'm afraid!!

They look really good at the table!

Love where you've placed the chairs but I also LOVE your pale mustard plate and the picture it goes with - just gorgeous! I know what you mean about buying items but putting them somewhere you didn't think of - I'm so glad I'm not alone - my husband and son think I'm mad when I go shifting things around (all the time!) so I'm very glad I have found like-minded women in blog-land :-)

Beautiful Becca...I love furniture pieces that you can use in more than one area and for more than one function...great versatility!! The chairs look fantastic in the dining room...the vignette is beautiful as always...the candlesticks have taken on a gorgeous new look...great job!!!

Susan said...

Your style is so warm and low-key and I adore it.I am SO envious of that white soup tureen on display...I see these all over the blogosphere, and I am dying to find one. You wouldn't happened to know where I can find it??? Lovely, really.

I just don't see how your dining room can get any better! The chairs are pure perfection in there. Love the vignette on your sideboard too.

Your sitting room is beautiful. I do love the chairs you would think that they would not fit in the room but they add a certain charm. The mustard yellow plates stand out in a cute and subtle way.
