The Yellow Chair

The hubby and I bought a yellow chair at an estate sale more years ago than I can remember.  We were drawn to it's bold color and retro lines.  The only problem was that we had no clue where we were going to put the thing.  Details, details.

Over the years, the yellow chair migrated from one place to another, most recently residing a corner of the dining room.  We still loved the chair but never seemed to find that "just right" place...  That is until a few weeks ago.

You may recall that the hubby and I were in the process of purging the excess stuff from our home.  One such item was an antique rocking chair that had been sitting in the corner of our bedroom for the past decade.

After the rocker was gone, I had the brilliant idea to put the yellow chair in the now empty corner.  I knew immediately that this was the perfect place.  Our yellow chair had finally found it's home. 

There is somethings so appealing about the way the yellow upholstery contrasts with the gray walls and white linens.  I love how it brings out the yellow in the mixed media art piece that hangs on the adjacent wall.  Best of all, it is the perfect place to enjoy a moment of peace and quiet or simply put on a pair of shoes.

It's one of the favorite corners in my house.  How about you?  Do you have a favorite corner?
