This Friday I’d like to feature some to-die-for design coming to you all the way from New Hampshire. My mother bought this gorgeous French Country bench from Wisteria this past Fall. Yes, she has great taste.
As amazing as it is on its own, this bench was in need of some serious styling. For Christmas my sister and I decided to accessorize this bench and make the entryway in our parent’s home more than just an place to throw your coat.
We started with a chic gold garden stool, also from Wisteria. We thought the bright gold modern look would be a great contrast against the dark wood of this french country bench.
For our final pillow, I wanted to add something quirky and fun. When I found this deer pillow on Etsy I knew it was perfect. Not only is it different, but the linen and black sketch coordinate perfectly with our French Country bench.
The end result looked a little something like this:
Not only do all the colors compliment one another, but we played with texture through the different fabric pillows. I’m afraid I cannot take credit for the adorable small bowed pillow because that genius idea came from my mother. I think my sister and I successfuly updated this bench through incorporating our personalities while still maintaining the taste of my parents. I’ve made my mom promise me that one day I’ll be the owner of this breathtaking bench. I can’t wait for it to grace the hall of my future home, but in the meantime I think it looks pretty darn good right where it is.
