Happy New Year, loves! I don’t know about you but I’ve been in a haze of exhaustion since the holidays ended. I always love Christmas decorations until it’s time to put them away. I’ve been vacuuming up stray pieces of tinsel and glitter for a week and somehow they still keep popping up! Putting away the decorations always feels like a clean slate and I get super motivated to do a little redecorating afterward. I decided I wanted to add a little more color in here for the New Year and thought a new accent chair and pillows would be the best way to do it. Switching out chairs and pillows is my favorite way to change things up. They’re easy to store away and swap from room to room, so you can easily switch things up whenever you feel like! I teamed up with Article to show you a few new color combos!
If you haven’t heard of Article yet, let me introduce you! Article is an online-only brand that offers quality modern furniture with a direct-to-consumer model that avoids price markups you’ll find in stores. This makes shopping with them easy, efficient, and more cost friendly! And the fact that delivery starts at only $49, regardless of order size or delivery location across the U.S. and Canada makes shopping for furniture online a delight.
I not only wanted to add more color but also luxe texture. The velvet Matrix chairs from Article turned out to be the perfect size and shape for my apartment’s living room. The rounded curves and slim legs are versatile enough to fit in with many styles, including my mid-century vibe. AND paired with the Lucca pillows makes for great color combos. Plus, ordering and delivery, and assembly was an absolute breeze.
I was set on the Matrix chair, but I had to pick a color! The Matrix comes in 12 colors, so I pulled colors from my rug and favorite table lamp as inspiration. I went with Blush Pink, Grass Green, and Persimmon Orange as my top contenders. Each one brings a different vibe to the room. Check it out!
The first option was Blush Pink paired with a Claret Red Lucca Pillow. I figured this would pull in the color from my lamp and red from my rug. I like the combination of pink and red, it feels cute and warm at the same time, and is perfect for February!
I also REALLY like it paired with a Persimmon Orange Lucca pillow. It ties together the orange from the rug and my dining room chairs nicely, without it being too orange.I love it from this angle! I’ve been wanting to try to incorporate more green into this room so next up is the Grass Green Matrix with Blush Pink pillows. Pink and green is one of my favorite color combos ever, buuutttt my room, bathroom, and office already have pink and green as their main colors so that might be overkill…This green is very luxe and gives me major Art Deco vibes. It gets an even warmer feel when paired with the Persimmon Orange pillow.
The Persimmon Orange Matrix against my blue sofa feels very retro! This is a popular contrasting color combo that brings a vibrant and fun feeling to the space. The Blush Pink Lucca pillow softens up the boldness a little, too. I think this might be my favorite…I’m super into this combo. The Lucca pillows come in sets of two, so can go on the chair while its twin decorates the sofa. Ooooo.
It’s SO hard to choose. I’m very torn between the two pink and orange combos. As much as I am IN LOVE with the persimmon orange, I don’t want that side of the room to feel overwhelmingly orange with the orange dining chairs and dining rug, so I’m going with the pink Matrix with Orange Lucca pillow for now, because it leads perfectly into the dining area and feels balanced while also tying together my lamp and rug.
I’ve been toying with the idea of changing the color of my dining chair cushions though, so I’ll hang on to the orange for a bit in case I go that route sooner than later and change my mind (which I so often do). We’ll see!
I’m curious – which of the 12 colors would you choose to mix and match?! Let me know in the comments!
