A note from Dave: If, like me, you’ve ever wondered how to make the leap from what you’ve got now to what will work better in the way of items to use while decking out your place, this new series of posts is for you. With the Starting Point posts, I’ll give my thoughts on where to focus when working to get from where you are now to where you want to go. Today: a place to start.
So you’re waking up to the fact that you want a space you can be proud of and that better reflects your taste, but you’re not sure how to get started. Here’s some food for thought: you can’t go wrong scouting and ponying up for a classic Mid-Century Modern chair. From the Eames DCM pictured above to any number of well-known alternatives, if you find one that resonates for you and you bring it into your space, it will serve you well for a lifetime. For a look at how well these iconic pieces play in any kind of interior, just take a look at my MCM-tagged entries here.
