A beautiful way to unite classic elements… with color of course!
In order to repeat this look: All you’ll need is a screw driver, staple gun, scissors, fabric (yardage depends on seating), and a couple hours!
Take any upholstered chair, like the dining chairs shown above. Depending on the chair itself, you may need to use a screw driver to remove the seat and back. Once removed, you can save yourself some time and place new fabric over the old (unless there are major damages).
This is where you get to be creative! You can either use the same fabric in different colors (like above) or give yourself the freedom to find something different. Maybe stripes? A fun floral? Don’t doubt yourself.. It’s fixable.

Are you pinking me?
Designed  by Kelly Wearstler, this ‘pink’ themed office is far from ordinary. Using unique accent pieces like the desk and two hand chairs creates a one-of-a-kind space. The wall paper, lighting, and every piece that was carefully selected brings a whole new level of creativity to the interior design world. I wouldn’t mind working here everyday. Does anyone else feel as empowered as I do?

A Roman head & the color red
Any space that encourages this type of freedom is right up my alley! I love the red bamboo chair with the zebra print, its unexpected and brings a modern touch to a somewhat vintage inspired chair. The touches of red and orange perfectly contrast with the blue carpet to create a simple, unique space. Notice the light gray wall color with the white moldings- classically done! 
PS- Anyone can create this style. Chairs like this can be found at your local thrift store or consignment store. Just some retouching, spray paint and a decorative seat pillow and you have your own custom piece! Reupholstering is also very easy - look up a tutorial or a DIY article and you’ll be a professional in minutes (find a really funky fabric, maybe a floral or geometric pattern…why not, right?). Also if you want to spice up your bookcase, buy a bunch of books from any thrift store and spray paint the plastic cover! I’ve seen gold and white, or a combination… you get the picture. Mix these books with your own to create the same type of look shown above. It’s a really cheap & unique way of creating a color palate for your home!
