"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Red is Pretty Much the Best Color Invented

The only problem with red is that there are millions of different shades and variations, so it's super hard to match. We decorated our nursery with pops of red, and it's given me some artist OCD because not every red thing I wanted to include coordinates exactly. The answer to the problem in general: tie all the reds together with a single item that includes all the color variations. My answer to my specific problem: a little something we like to call The Chair of the Gods. Behold:

This humdinger was the result of about 8 months' worth of scouring furniture stores, second-hand stores, and online ads. I know you can't tell from this photo, but the fabric is mottled so it effortlessly ties together all the variations of red in the rest of the room. Hallelujah! Yes, it is indeed a throne fit for the Baxter Gods.
