If you’re anything like me and makeover your home on a yearly basis (ok, bi-yearly…at least) it’s best to purchase neutral furnishings that can take on a whole new look via easy accents and a new coat of wall paint. But sometimes I just can’t help myself when I spot a punchy patterned item like this arm chair. But don’t let pieces like this scare you off–this beauty can work in a variety of settings. When you’re ready for a living room makeover, move the chair into your dining room at the head of the table, or in your bedroom to create a reading nook and give those rooms a whole new look. Neutral need not be boring–or stagnant! (-Allie)
