Coloring a Wing Chair

I have two old wing chairs that I'm going to recover at some point.  I think they are 1980's or early 90's chairs.  They are recliners. They are in what I'm calling The Happy Room at my house.    My goal is to fill this room with things that make my family smile. They do not look happy right now. How would you color them?  What about some 80's inspired color blocking on them?

Keep in mind this is a kids and dog room. I'm going to think about this while we're paddling in the lake on a sunny 80's degree day.

Hello, Dixie!
I just found your site and am so interested in taking your Izannah Walker doll class. The dolls you have made are so lovely. Very impressive!
Unfortunately I couldn't email you from your contact page because I get the massage that my default email is not set up properly (whatever that entails!) I signed up for the newsletter, but if there is additional information that I will need, please email me at
Thank you so much! I hope there will be another class in the near future.

How do greens (of forests and plants) and blues (of lakes and rivers) strike you? Maybe deeper (jewel) tones? Actually, I stink at this sort of thing, and I know you are very creative, so I can't wait to see what you come up with.
