I’m a big fan of HGTV and the DIY network. I love home decorating. There are some fascinating renovation shows on the air, but let’s be honest: for most of us, we can’t do a whole room or a whole house in one go. It’s more of an organic process; we take one or two items at a time, trade out and trade up, and do things bit by bit. If you can keep the vision of what you want to achieve and keep your eyes open for the right pieces, your can design your perfect room. Plus, you’re never truly “done”, which for me is a good thing. A perfect house with nothing to do is boring!
My bedroom is my next project. Right now, I want a slipper chair. A slipper chair is a low, armless upholstered chair. It is meant for things like putting on shoes in the morning. There are a lot of slipper chairs with an embellished or Victorian look, which doesn’t suit my decor. I’m a fan of a more mid-century modern style. I would love a chair in a bright color or pattern, too–this is an accent chair, and can be slightly less practical than your sofa, for instance.

Surprisingly, Target has a LOT of interesting slipper chairs for reasonable prices. I think there’s a wide variety, whatever your decor.
