My chair arrived!!

Here's a pic... the aqua is much brighter than it appears in the online pic, and the yellow is more of a muted, mustard-y shade.  Glad I didn't jump the gun like I always do and purchase a bunch of super bright yellow accessories...

Here's a pic of the fabric swatch online, this is pretty spot on, except the aqua is much more aqua in person...


Here s a pic photo 3138736-2


Target's pic (looks MUCH brighter yellow to me)


Here s a pic photo 3138736-3


Here it is in the room (pardon my panels, they need to be steamed/ironed badly)...


Here s a pic photo 3138736-4


The grey is a beautiful deep grey, and this really makes me want to paint my hutch grey now!! (Thanks Debbie for the suggestion!! :)

And I REALLY need to add (or re-cover) some pillows... here are a few options I'm looking at.

I definitely want to get a swatch of the actual chair fabric and make a pillow cover or two with that, but I think I need just a bit more yellow to make it really flow.  What do you think?

The chair looks great!  I would add some more yellow, to really pull it all together if it were my room...   I think adding a pillow or two on the couch that had some yellow in it will do wonders!


 


I absolutely love the first two pillows/fabrics, just gorgeous!

I think it looks great!  I do agree though, that a little more *pop* of yellow would be icing on the cake.  I still vote for yellow candleholders, whether you DIY to those black ones you have or buy new ones.  :)


What pillows will you be recovering?  The ones on the top of the couch or on the couch cushions?

I totally love all of those pillows. I say get 'em all...and the fabric swatch pillow, as well. LOL!


Not sure if you will put a pillow on the chair, but if so, I like this one :-)


I totally love all photo 3139036-1


Would you consider a mustard yellow throw for either the couch or the chair?


I can't wait to see that hutch! I vote for yellow paper in the back there, too! :-)

Love it!  I think I prefer the mustard yellow to the bright yellow in your room!  So pretty and it looks great with your sofa!

I love the chair! I actually think I may like the real-life colors better than in the Target pic. The room is coming along nicely already :)
