Awhile ago, I fell in love with Tara Dillard's garden blog called Vanishing Threshold: Garden, Life Home.
Her posts are so simple, interesting, sometimes funny, and yet so profound.
I subscribed to her posts because I was suddenly fascinated with landscaping since my new house needed tons of it. Maryanne White (My landscape designer) suggested a garden urn to be placed right in front of my living room window. She said they are like accessories in a garden.
So that was the other reason I loved this post Tara wrote called Rule for Pots. She said "Pots in a garden must be so fabulous, they can remain empty", read the post though, how she discovered this rule was good.
This is how I feel about chairs. Hard or Upholstered, a chair should look so fabulous, it can stand alone.
Here are some of my favourites, from my 'chairs' Pinterest boards:
Do your chairs pass the test?
If they don't and they can be painted, get painting! A boring, dated oak chair looks a lot sexier in a bright and fun colour!
