What do you think?

I love my new office and the black walls are great but something wasn't right...I stuck my old brown marshmallow chair up there and it didn't work, so i tried my chair that I got from Marvel from the Howey Mansion (long story but I got a great deal and I probably should do a blog post just about that). I think it looks good but I wanted more of a modern touch, what do you think? Is it too much with the old desk or should I find a more black modern chair??? I would love to have your opinion?

(I think a chair is an anchor to a room. You can change an entire space by switching chairs.)

ALSO has anyone ever tried adding wheels to a chair?? I'm sure they have kits at Lowes. If so let me know how well they held up. Thank you :)

Have a great WEEKEND :)

Oh no the green chair is gorgeous. I love the room. the black walls are stunning and i love the ornate desk. did you try pulling the desk out more in the middle of the room and putting the chair behind it, so you are sitting with your back to the wall.

The chair I think brings it all together! I've seen my parents put wheels on chairs alot. just make sure to get heavy duty ones. I think they come in grey so you might need to spray paint them. Your fur child is precious! What kind is she?

Thank you GAY! I wish I could move it out but the room is to small and the table is HUGE! :) THANK YOU


Thank you Annabelle! I'll look for some heavy duty ones.

Her name is Roxy, we rescued her last FEB so were not sure what she is. I know she has chihuahua and Papillon in her. She has the butterfly ears like a Papillon but head and body as a Chihuahua, my husband and I call her a ChiPop :) She has the attitude of a Chihuahua :) We love her so much

NOOOO! Don't change it out. I could totally see this photograph in a glossy magazine for interior because of its eclectic style. The chair is the statement piece and really livens up the darker components of the room. Amazing office space :o)

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and for leaving such a sweet comment!

I love the green chair, the shape is just lovely and it is such a pop of color.

I would definitely not go for black furniture in a black room!! BTW: I love that you painted black in the first place, It's so rare to see.

Wow, your office is so dramatic! Love that you were brave and painted the walls black.

The chair is perfect :-) The lines are beautiful, and it brings the perfect hit of colour into the room. And I actually think it has a modern vibe to it.

I don't know how to attach wheels to chairs, but I'm sure it can be done. If you can find caster wheels from an old piece of furniture (do you know the ones I mean?), I'm sure they'd work on your chair.

I love the green chair in that room! It is such a fun pop of color against the black walls (which DO look great)!
