*photographed by John Cullen for House & Home

I have been so super busy this week it is unbelievable!  I have 4 vendors in the office from China, we’ve been having long business dinners every night and haven’t had a spare moment!

During a lunch today and I managed to feign a bathroom break and I actually took 5 minutes of much needed downtime to pop over to House & Home, and found this photo with a faux dip dye effect on furniture.  Both the chair and the coat rack have a dual color effect that has a lot of impact!  The items are not color blocked because the color doesn’t cut off at an obvious transitional point in the piece, but the color extends onto a less expected section of the furniture, which I absolutely love.

I think the chair especially is a really fresh way to work a graphic color statement into a room – notice the little ‘dipped’ legs too! Click on the picture above to link to the House & Home site for a full tutorial on how to do this yourself at home.

I love it and think that I might try it for an accent chair in my living room…. What do you thinks??  Do you love it or hate it?
