For those of you that have little kids, or those of you that are kids yourselves, have you ever watched the Yo Gabba Gabba kids show? The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this chair, was that it could easily pass for a Yo Gabba Gabba character. True to the characters nature, the chair is odd, and maybe not the most enticing chair. Nevertheless, something draws you to it. At the very least the desire to brush your hand against these soft bristles will be there.
I myself love the whimsical. As long as it is not everywhere you look. That would be too much. This chair would be fascinating in a particular decor, but not in all. The color is fun. It is not to be taken seriously. It is a conversation piece and it reminds you when you are in the room it is in, that life should not be taken too seriously either.
Look around your home. What do you see? Is it borning? Does it lack inspiration? Now look at your life? Is it more of the same? Many times the two go hand in hand. So how about for 2010 we do something about it! Put a spring in your step! Wouldn't that be a great way to start off the year??
I'm not asking you to put this bushy, neon green chair in your the middle of your French provincial living room. That would be hideous! What I want you to do is start small. (Or, if you are inspired, go for it big!) Put ONE thing in ONE room in your house, that would be unexpected. It can be something as grand as a sofa, to something as small as a paperweight or pillow.
Go with YOUR FLOW and follow your instincts. Don't allow yourself to be intimidated by what people will think. Don't let your habits of being conservative kick in and tell you this is just not right. Add a little spunk to your home and your life.
Once you do this, I would love for you to share some pictures of that space with me. My email link is on the right side of this page. For those of you that have already applied this "out of the box addition" to your room(s) You too can share. And for those of you that are still a bit unsure as to what might be some good ideas for your rooms, why don't you send me a few pictures of the room you want to add to and between the two of us, we can figure it out as well.
Enjoy the process!
