(i don't know where this is from. my friend emailed it to me.) there is so much to love here: 1. silhouette painting 2. silhouette painting in front of bookshelves 3. the buttons on the tufted chair are made of a different fabric than the chair is. so good!
i hate matchy-match. drives me completely nuts. my husband loves matchy-match. if everything came in sets he would be the happiest man on earth. some of the biggest design blights on my house have come from compromising on matchy-match.
we've all seen about a million sets of mis-matched chairs painted into a set. what makes this set work exceptionally well is how radically different the shapes of the chairs are. they match, but they are not even kind of matchy-match.
