Allison Crawford of Allison Crawford Design stopped by to take us by a chair transformation. You can find chairs online from Etsy to Craigslist. From family and friends to garage sales and even preservation stores. Allison incited dual chairs from discount to a best seats in a studio. The initial chair she talked about was $40 off Craigslist. First, she mist embellished a chair a matte black. Unscrewed a chair and stapled a confidant black and white imitation on to it. Mixing and relating is one of Allison’s specialties. She integrated a sham with a smaller imitation that gave off a some-more genealogical flare. Mixing complicated and tribal, a ideal accent chair for your guest room. The final chair we looked during was bought for $20.  The midst century complicated chair is some-more of a neutral with a cocktail of color. Allison sprayed embellished a chair blue. Added a smaller imitation with a bottom of off white and blue patterns. Adding a bolder imitation for a accent pillows staying in a same tone family. Here are some manners of blending prints and patterns like a pro:

  • Choose one imitation to browbeat and one to accent.
  • Mix prints of opposite scales
  • Keep your fabrics in a same tone family
  • Use a accurate settlement in a incomparable or smaller scale
  • If regulating a same pattern, upset a colors
