Sitting Pretty

* This photo was mis-credited in the original post as being from Never Enough Thyme.

I came across this image, while looking for some seating inspiration for our sun room. I have a gorgeous cast iron daybed already, as well as two wicker chairs, which could be used for seating. I think however, after seeing this photo, that I'm going to keep my eye out for two pretty sitting chairs. They're relatively small frames, so they won't take up much more space, but they look so much more comfortable!

I love the look of a slipcover, so it makes for a cheap update of an older chair. The trick is to find matching ones!

I'm off to start browsing online to see what I can find...

Happy Monday.

PS. I will be sponsoring a giveaway, starting tomorrow until Valentines Day, over at Secret Garden Cottage. It's going to be a lovely little package, so be sure to check back tomorrow for details!

  10. We have a good will close by and there were two chairs like the ones above except they reclined as well, funky fabric great condition wingback for 75.00.....check your local used furniture or resale shops I have seen a lot of wingbacks with funky fabric that would work beautifully for your project.

  15. I love your clean style and all that luxurious white. I am on the opposite end of the spectrum since my family comes in the house from the greenhouses covered in dust and grime. No time to keep white clean.

    Love your blog!

  16. Just found your blog from Urban Farmgirl!! Love it!! I will be a follower forever!! Your style is so inviting!!

  17. Pretty sure the picture is from the home of Holly, from Life in the Fun Lane and White Berry Reinvented. She does great work. Also enjoying catching up on your blog!
