Week 2 ORC Update: A POP of Coral
“Move Along…Nothing to See Here!”
That’s a bit how I feel with the progress on my office this week. Two birthdays (with a third tomorrow) and a Hurricane have not helped me to progress as much as I would have liked this past week.
Plus…the truth is that what I’m doing right now in my office is to paint it white. So, even if I had finished what I had hoped to, all I would be showing you is a… white office. As it is, it’s a pale yellow office that has been partially cut in with white. Ooooh…exciting!
I did make a minor change, well maybe not so minor, to my ‘Neutral and Calm Office’…which may force me to rename it. Just to refresh your memory, here’s my first mood board.
HOWEVER, as is often the case with me, I came across something that has tossed that idea a bit.
It’s nothing earth-shattering. I mean, it’s a mere piece of fabric. And a solid piece of fabric at that.
But…it is the most gorgeous, rich and vibrant shade of coral fabric. In fact, some might call it orange, but since I don’t like ‘orange’, I’m calling it ‘coral’. ☺
Here it is on my in-process, being-reupholstered chair. I was just feeling that my office plan was a little ‘ho-hum’ so I went to a favorite fabric store with linen and paint samples in hand and came out with this fabric.
Just enough to make a little ottoman of some sort…haven’t worked out those details yet. But…to balance my room, I felt I needed to add that coral somewhere else. So…here’s my new and improved mood board.
What do you think? It’s still kinda neutral, I mean more than it is right now. But I think I’m going to love those pops of orange…I mean coral. Oh, and I may have also purchase a little piece of patterned coral fabric to make a wee pillow for my chair.
And, here’s a little tip…If you ever want to see how a piece of furniture or room will look if painted a certain color, Sherwin-Williams has a great program. I ‘painted’ the chest on line to see what I thought. Here’s the link.
So my friends, I am confident I will have more to show you next week, barring an unforeseen hurricane.
