I ended up taking back the jute rug. Seriously painful to walk on. I decided I would look for something less “knotty”. Maybe a seagrass weave. Anyway this is my chair. I seriously love it although I took a great deal of grief for buying something so “dainty”. Screw it- I’m keeping it for myself. I will get a big gorilla chair for him 🙂
So I took a real chance and bought a couch online at Wayfair . The company has a wide selection of sofas and terrific customer service so I ordered a bunch of swatches before selecting Rowley Navy Tweed upholstery for the Marsden sofa.
I found the throw pillows at Pier one. Overall I like the couch although the material is a bit scratchy.
So here is the main living area – I’m going to try and work with the wall color and floor “as is” . The pic is dark. I will try and take a better shot tomorrow after my couch arrives . Also I will be changing out all the window treatments with 2″ plantation shutters – but that’s a project for later when I have more time
So here’s my first hack – allow me to introduce you to Pier One’s Temani Chair
I will be chief cook and bottle washer on this project… no big budgets for interior design help or expensive pieces. Just me trying to hack my way to a beautifully feathered Florida nest.
