Homework/music room - eclectic, collected, fresh

This dining room turned playroom turned homework/music room has a collected feel to it. Beautiful grasscloth walls, a soft warm gray and textured white curtains provide a neutral backdrop to fun pops of color. A reupholstered cane wingback in a funky colorful pattern, an antique Canadian Public School chair, a gallery wall filled with all sorts of treasured and DIY items, layered rugs and Louis ghost chairs all work together to give this space a unique, collected vibe. It reflects the vibrant spirit of the homeowners that won't be pinned down to just one style.

Chair Paint Colour? - Hi Cathy, Just read the Ideabook article, what a great use of space. Can you please tell me what colour you painted the wing chair? Thank you Cameron

Thank you. The chair was painted in a mix of gray and brown leftover paint colors I had on hand. Base was sanded and painted gray then I added a brown wash on top with a variety of sanding and wiping to achieve desired look.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

AFTER: This caned wingback chair in the study was a $20 thrift store find. Zaeske painted it herself and then splurged on Schumacher’s Chang Mai Dragon fabric for the upholstery. Both rooms have a well-traveled look; this chair is a mix of British colonial and chinoiserie styles that she carried through both rooms.

The mix of colonial and oriental. Saving a lovely chair. I would change the light fixture though and look for a complementary table with table lamp.
