I recently installed these gorgeous chairs in a project I completed last year. I thought it was a great opportunity to point out a really important element of interior design that I constantly find myself telling my clients…”the greater the risk, the greater the reward.” In this case, the client loved these spindle chairs and she really wanted to order them but thought maybe we should play it safe and order them in a beige, neutral fabric. I had to push her a little to go for what we both loved, this gorgeous Betwixt fabric from Schumacher, because it was the right choice for her living room. When the chairs showed up the other day, she gasped and went “I love the chairs” over and over! This immediate infatuation would not have been the same if they were beige. It just wouldn’t! Sometimes we need to push ourselves outside of our comfort zone and go for what we really love and not for what is just “safe.” And if she happens to tire of this bold, cobalt blue fabric, which I don’t think will happen anytime soon, we can always have them recovered in another fabric. So next time you’re questioning a safe choice vs. an “I love it” choice….go with the “I love it!” and you will be handsomely rewarded, I promise!
