New Runner and Good As New Chair

I finally got a runner for the long hallway in my apartment. I’m sure the people who live in the unit below me are grateful. What do y’all think? Black & white + Chevron = Love it! I got it from one of our vendors, but West Elm and Urban Outfitters have similar options.

I also wanted to share the miraculous restoration of a very broken chair. One of my brother’s friends leaned back in one of the dining chairs at my parents cabin and this happened:

But I took it to the Touch Up Guy here in Atlanta and he literally made it good as new! You can’t even tell it was ever broken. Impressive, isn’t it? He even put steel rods in it. Pretty much good as new:

Herringbone floors

Yesterday, I showed you some of my favorite hardwood floors.  What about herringbone hardwood floors?  Some people might call them chevron floors – whichever is fine with me.  I love seeing pictures of old New York City or Parisian apartments with gorgeous old herringbone floors.  So chic.  Take a look.

I am in LOVE with the photo above.  The light fixture.  The soft blue paint color.  Oh and the floors too.  Kobenhavns Mobelsnedkeri (yes that is apparently a designer) [source]

Chic Chevron

Chevron patterns have been catching my eye lately… In all different forms.  I’m not sure what I’m going to do about it.  I would love a chevron runner in the hallway of my apartment.
