Mickey Mouse x Daykoor

A certain aspect of Curves And Coffee is lifestyle. Whatever that encompasses, I like to share with you guys. Over the years, I’ve tried to give a glimpse of my favorite home design items by the way of chairs. It’s weird, I know, but it’s something about chairs that just draw me in. Show me an awesome chair and I can design an entire room around it!

As you can tell, I dabble in home decor and interior design. It’s literally one of my favorite things to do. I love it so much that I actually took a few courses on the subject…see…LOVE! You can see more of what I love by checking out some of my past “Daykoor” favorites just by clicking ->H E R E<-

Another not-so-secret thing about me…

Since I was a kid, I have been infatuated with Disney (Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse to be exact). The obsession is still around after all these years. When I was younger, my mom let me decorate my bedroom however I wanted. Of course, this meant there HAD to be some Disney magic sprinkled in there. Well, I went chic-ly overboard. Back then, we couldn’t find the perfect curtains so we shopped around and found a Disney shower curtain that was clear, added color blinds behind it and I had the most Disney-est window treatments in my childhood room. Added to that were Mickey & Minnie shaped rugs and a bed set to match.

Of course, now, I tend to keep my obsession to a minimum by having cute jewelry, a few pair of Vans x Disney shoes, and maybe a few throwback style tees and sweatshirts/hoodies. That means no more Minnie bed sheets these days, all sophistication around here. So I tell you all of this to share my excitement with a new home collection from Ethan Allen!

Total hysteria and love tears flowed when I got an email about a Disney home collection that’ll be available to purchase on November 18, 2016 (Mickey Mouse’s birthday!) There’s currently a presale with select items that you can purchase now and here are just a few of my faves, I mean, because…

I WANT EVERYTHING!

Ok, so that was the happy part of the Disney x Ethan Allen collection…here’s the not-so-happy part…did you SEE those prices?

Everything. Is. Priced. To. The. Max.

Like, I get it. Life is expensive but a Mickey themed accent pillow shouldn’t be $200! Picture a cartoon with its’ eyes bugging out…that’s me when I saw $1,500! I’d be more than happy with $50 because even fifty bucks is a lot for a pillow BUT if I really want it, I’m definitely gonna spend. Of course what I truly need from this fantastical furniture collection is that chair! That would look great in a bedroom sitting area or in a dressing room/walk-in closet.

This may make me take a trip to Michael’s or Hobby Lobby and get crafting. Who’s with me?!

Let’s all get together and have a crafting session to come up with daykoor items that are fit for a Disney princess!

Interior Design: Chic and Comfy Home Decor `The Balloon Chair`

 

 

Up Up and away (and sometimes down down and comfy!)

 

 

Some of you are aware of my obsession with interior design and home decor, more particularly…..chairs. Not sure why my eyes are drawn towards chairs (could be my lazy side *haha) but it’s been a while since I’ve noticed one that I absolutely WANT.

 

Last week, I was searching for a rug to put in my living room. Instead, I came across this awesome chair aptly named a “Balloon Chair” and it’s exactly what you’d think it is…..a chair in the shape of a hot air balloon!

 

 

 

Leonide Fabric Balloon Chair by Zentique Inc ~ $2,226.39 ~ Wayfair

 

 

 

This sent me on a search to find more of these cool chairs and here they are!

 

 

Balloon Chair in Metallic  ~ $3,495 ~ ModShop

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zebra Balloon Chair by Old Hickory Tannery  ~ $3,639 ~ Neiman Marcus

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PM Continental Balloon Chair ~ $916.30 ~ HomeThangs

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blue Ming Balloon Chair by Massoud ~ $2,669 ~ Neiman Marcus

 

 

 

 

 

 

And of course I found a couple of balloon chairs in pink! I mean, it’s only one of my favorite colors!

 

 

 

 

 

Victoire Balloon Chair  ~ $1,675 ~ Fabulous and Baroque

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Magenta Balloon Chair ~ $2,495 ~ ModShop

 

 

 

These chairs aren’t whimsical in a circus-like way but more of a sophisticated formal yet fun way. I’m imagining a dinner party with laughs and Louboutins while sipping on a sweet dessert champagne! I’d even make this the perfect office chair fit for a queen boss! Needless to say, I never found that rug I was looking for…back to the search.

 

Sit. Stay. Daykoor.

 IKEA really knows how to reel me in! It’s not that hard, just send me a catalog, I’ll look through EVERY page, and write a mental shopping list! Yea, I’m fairly easy to please. Normally, you guys see the chic and stylish chairs that I love so much like thisthis, and this but today, I’m in love with an ENTIRE sofa!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Of course it was the color that caught my eye first…it’s pink, that’s kind of a no-brainer!

 

Then very very very shortly after spying fuschia, I saw the functionality of this sofa. It’s a bed, storage area, and a couch…all-in-one! This made it absolutely irresistible! My next task will be heading down the road to the local IKEA to test the comfiness of this contraption (insert dramatic gasp, head shaking, sweating, and fist clinching.) If you’ve ever been inside an IKEA store, you know exactly what I mean. If you have yet to visit….I encourage you to bring: patience, a cell phone with emergency contacts, water, and comfortable shoes!

 

 Lastly, GRAB THE MAP at the entrance, seriously.

 

Daykoor

If you can recall, I absolutely love home decorating and anything involving interior design. In case you may need to refresh your memory…check out these posts from the past ( Daykoor )
Now that we’ve been reacquainted with my love of furniture, picture this lovely chair in your home.
The “Dane” is actually a recliner! Say goodbye to those once bulky and hunky recliners that your grandparents use to own and welcome the new stylish La-Z Boy!
It’s not everyday that you come across a reclining chair that looks so comfortable and so incredibly stylish! Put this bad boy um La-Z Boy next to some vibrant artwork or heck right next to your kids toy bin (if you have those little things.) If my future hubby wants a recliner, a recliner he will get…if it looks like that!

Daykoor: Tux Chair

Surprise!  It’s a chair!!

You guys, it’s a “tuxedo chair” that’s gotta be better than a regular chair, right?

(Reaching, I know but you understand)

This weeks love of my life comes in a dark shade.  Way different from my usual chair obsession like here and here and here.

Still worthy of a glimpse.

Thank you Crate & Barrel for feeding my need to decorate an apartment I have no room in! This chair would look great in a room with dark wood floors and sleek modern accessories. Imagine a streamlined sofa in solid charcoal next to it with silver accents on the wall.  This could also work in a men’s room (office or place) I can see a dart board somewhere but a luxe one not the kind with the rubber tips!
A black coffee table would be primo!  Maybe a round glass table between the chair and the sofa (with black legs) YES!  This chair works in so many different ways!
How would you decorate?

Daykoor: Interior Design for your Home Office

By now, you should really know I have quite the obssession with chairs.  In case you’re new here…my fascination with chairs is an odd one and I’m sorry in advance.  Well, not really sorry because you’ll get to see all the wonderful chairs that will bring happiness and joy to your home.  That was a tad dramatic.  Moving on….chaaaaaairs!

These swivel babies were a Pinterest find!  Can you believe it?! Me either!
$349
Brought to us by PB Teen aka Pottery Barn

Now, I’m perfectly aware that it’s for a teens room but Pottery Barn NEEDS to make some magic happen!  Wouldn’t one of these look chic for us regular adult people of the desk sitting world?!  If I were designing an office for someone…those chairs would definitely be a main part of the design.

In case you’re like me and like pink or something “wild”…
go for the zebra print which slightly higher at $369
And if you aren’t looking for a chair that swivels
Check out the Ooh La La arm chair
PERfection!
So…what do you think?

Daykoor: Jonathan Adler

Dare I take a break from fashion week?!  I’m not even there in New York but I’m exhausted like I’ve been in heels for 80 hours and hailing taxis in the late summer heat!  The pictures that I’ve seen from NYFW…..amazeballs! Yep, I just through amazeballs into a blog post. Anywho…just thinking about all of the dramatics just made me wanna sit and be comfy right here at home.

What better way to be comfy than to stroke my need for new furniture (which I don’t really need.) My obsession with chairs has only seemed to become worse since last weeks post. Travelling through the crazy, mixed up world that is patterned furniture…I found this pretty cheeky warmer!
Templeton Chair
If you go to Jonathan Adlers’ site, you can design a custom chair to match any decor.  I can put lime green and black legs on this same chair and have it be the centerpiece of my living room!
Voila!
Could you imagine the possibilites?  The simple design of this chair lends itself to be a chameleon in your home.  Bright pop of color on contrasting legs.
Boom!
Same chair, different design!
Here in lies the problem, it will set you back a mean $995-$1,295.  Someone tell Mr. Adler I want to work somewhere in his company and can it come with a Templeton chair as payment?!
All in fun…. “Will work for chairs or sofas.”
Yes, there’s a sofa, headboard, bed and ottoman…a family of Templetons!
Decorate away pretties!

…..decor

 
Home decor to be exact.
 
Chairs to be exacter.
 
Recently, I realized my fascination with wild upholstered chairs is a bit more than just a fascination.  I’ve been actually hunting down chairs that I dare to desire.  There is absolutely no room in my apartment for a chair but dang nabbit if I don’t find one and put it in storage til I find a bigger place!  I mean, that’s the ONLY logical thing to do, right? LOL
 
I have absolutely NO idea who makes, who upholstered it or who even uploaded this picture on Pinterest!
 
 
 
 
 
 
All I know is…this chair needs to be in my possession…even if I find this fabric, I’m sure I can find an old chair to be reupholstered.  If anyone knows who, what, when, where, why and how to get this chair…shoot me an email!
