Decorating & Furniture/dining chairs
Have just moved into an Edwardian terrace house.
The previous owners opened up ground floor into living/dining space, with arch separating the two (kitchen tucked around corner horseshoe shape with terracotta floor tiles and greyish pinkish colour scheme)
Exposed floorboards in living/dining rooms piney tones
Ceiling roses and cornicing all painted off white
The living room has a small black fireplace and LARGE black leather suite (sofa/chair/pouf)
We have also bought a large glass dining table
I am confused about what chairs to get....we like ones with fabric on back and seat for comfort (current L shape ones that seem to be everywhere) but feel like we could end up with more black leather if we take this option!
I am planning to use sands and blue/aqua’s in the living room curtains and perhaps sand on chimney breasts so it certainly won’t be a sleek and monochrome scheme
(maybe even florals in the curtains to echo deco flower shapes on fireplace)
1) What do you suggest for the dining chairs?
2) How do I tie in leather and matt black with texture, floral and lighter colours?!
If you really feel that black leather will be too much, how about a natural linen cover?
I think these look very stylish (actually I have something very similar in my own home so I hope they look stylish!).
Sand, aqua and the natural linen of the chairs would be a lovely colour scheme and in order that the sofa doesn't look out of place, you just need to find a fabric that includes black + one or two of the other colours and use it to make some sofa cushions:
and maybe also a quick and easy wall panel:
Something like this fabric:
may not be to your taste but is just to illustrate the point that you can use a number of different colours in a room as long as they are all brought together in some way.
