I know. I know. I said that my last post would be the last flip before baby. But what can I say? She was apparently too comfortable to vacate the premises any earlier than she had to so I’ve been left to my own devices while she takes her sweet sweet time. Is this any indication of what she’ll be like on the outside? Heaven help us.
We all know I love me a good cantilever chair (see here and here). In fact, I’ve been hoarding a chrome cantilever chair in my workshop for a few months now so it was the perfect quick flip to crank out in my impatient 39-weeks state.
It was a gray vinyl with a speckling of rusty patina on the chrome. What drew me to it was the mod lines and I started to see it becoming something modern and lux. Plus it was the perfect opportunity to try out a new decor crush of mine:
Burnt Orange Velvet
We also know that I love me a good terra-cotta color but guys...if you put it in velvet then I’M JUST SMITTEN.
As I said before, the chrome wasn’t in the most perfect but it was easy to shine up for the most part using some wadded up aluminum foil and water.
That velvet - I mean COME ON!!!
On the back of the chair, I added some matching chrome nailhead trim.
And styled the whole shebang with stark shapes and vivid contrasting colors (also faves of mine): chartreuse and aqua.
Ok that’s it I promise - I’m officially on maternity leave. The good news is, with baby’s due date being today and all, this means I’ll at least have one more bucket list item to share in the near future - No.5: the Nursery! So stay tuned for that reveal and Baby H’s big debut!
