Mismatched Harmony

Dreams & Happy Things

We are all comfortable seeing a host and hostess chair that are different from the rest, a banquette coordinated with chairs, but what do you see when you look at these pictures?

The chairs are all brightly painted the same color.  They all have the same feel.  Both answers are correct ~ and that is exactly why the mismatched chairs work.  They were brought together in a cohesive way.

There's a charm factor at work.  Slipcovers can also be used to marry the mismatched and turn them into a coherent "cover" story.  Sure, you could set up some folding chairs; anyone can do that.  I love the mismatched idea and the look ~ like you quickly, informally gathered chairs from around your place, but my eye needs to be soothed.  That's where the common color or similar feel in objects comes into play.

It looks great any time but thru the harried holidays when people are floating in and out, but never let your aesthetic guard down!  Note to self for next season.
