Mismatched Chairs and a Farmhouse Style Vignette

5.01.2015

Last week I shared the chairs that I transformed from yellow to gray and placed in the dining room. 
Several of you asked what was in the breakfast room now? I had the six black chairs in here while I painted the yellow ones, but I decided to try something different and placed the ladderback chairs that were in the dining room in here.



If you look closely you will notice the chairs are mismatched. Two are gray with linen seats and two are white with checked seats. The gray ones sat against the wall beside the hutch in the dining room and the white ones were at the table. I don't mind them being mismatched, but I do have two more of these chairs in the original dark finish that I will eventually paint and recover.



Yesterday many of you said this wall in the breakfast room was the best spot for the new Kensington clock from Decor Steals. I knew I had some smart design savvy readers. This is my favorite spot, too.

I changed up what I have on the table again. Y'all know nothing stays the same long around here.

I blame this new vignette on this new old looking cow from Antique Farmhouse. When it came up for sale I tried to resist it, but I just couldn't.

I pulled out my vintage berries crate and filled it with a few things I had on hand and then the cow statue landed there, too.

For height I used a cake stand and placed a French torchon on it.

The vintage red scale adds a pop of color.

The enamelware pitcher with grocery store flowers that I also used in the spring sun room shoot rounds out this farmhouse style vignette.



I hope y'all have a fabulous weekend!

  12. I love the mismatched chairs! When I worked for Pottery Barn, a million years ago, I got 6 chairs for a ridiculous steal (like $5 each), but the catch was that they were all different colors. That was fine with me, I've always liked a collected look, but none of my family or friends got it. Of course,now it's totally in vogue, back then, I was just a mismatched decorating mess! Ha!

  14. Well, I will give you that the clock is perfect there- but I liked it in the guest bath, too. However, the cow is PERFECT right where you placed it. That is A GREAT looking cow, too. I've not seen any others like it. I like mix and match chairs, too. xo Diana

  15. You have a great eye for decorating. I wasn't sure what a French torchon(tea towel) was since I took Spanish, but I found out I actually have one I bought in Avignon, France two summers ago.Maybe I'll pull it out and start something with it..lol. I like the collected look too.

  24. The breakfast room was definitely the right choice for the clock. And I,too, want that cow! And I like the mismatched chairs. I"m really tired of my matchy-matchy set. But I can't quite bring myself to paint them as they are a nice golden oak and fairly new. Maybe I will find some cool old ones that I don't mind painting and giving a new life. Thanks for your inspiring post!
