Fall One Room Challenge: Week 2

This project was created in a partnership with the One Room Challenge Sponsors!  

Week two of the one room challenge is good stuff friends!! Some of my items are starting to arrive and it is like Christmas everyday… eeeep!!!

In my last post I showed you pics of what the room looked like when we bought the house. We have been living here for a little over a year now and I had made some improvements in the meantime.

We added a v-groove shiplap to the walls, herringbone wood flooring and we redid our banister with a Chippendale design. Here are a couple progress pics so you can get an idea.

This is when my husband was installing the flooring in our entryway. This is a Hallmark flooring. Color: Twain  Collection: Novella

I had my star railing custom built to my specifications in this chippendale pattern. When you enter our home an look up, this is the first thing you see. I really love how it turned out!

Ok, so let’s get down to the nitty gritty, here is the design board that I came up with for the room. I still have a few extra details that I am working on that I will reveal later. I am working out the details to see if I can do them.

Chandelier: Hudson Valley Lighting -Sofa: Hayneedle – Sideboard: Article

Sconces: Hudson Valley Lighting -Artwork: Minted -Lamp: LampsPlus

I hope you are excited because I know I sure am!! Check back next week for some design tips and also I will dig in a little deeper about why I selected these pieces and where I will put them.

Make sure to follow along with all my other challengers to see what fun stuff they are cooking up this season!

Fall One Room Challenge: Week One

I am so honored to be a part of the One Room Challenge this fall. Last time I took part in the challenge I completely remodeled my Living Room/ Dining Room area. I have to say, it is my most favorite room in the house! Just to jog your memory, here it is!

Needless to say I absolutely love color and since this is my house, there will plenty of it to go around. This challenge, I decided to redo my entryway off of this room. It really just doesn’t compare and since you can see them at the same time, the entryway definitely could use a little love.

When we purchased the house, every room had to be gutted and redone. The architecture was dated, the finishes were dated and obviously the floor was dated. Here is what we had to work with when we first moved in about a year ago.

Ah, yes, just look at that arched mirror on the left. I am pretty sure this is not what our guests want to see as they enter my home. There are too many things going wrong here, I just had to start from scratch LOL!

The room to the right is my Living Room/ Dining Room the room pictured above from my first ORC. Obviously these pictures are older but I wanted you to see a true before of how far this room will come by the end of the challenge. What could I possibly do with this terrible space?? What on earth have I gotten myself into? Well, I guess you will just have to follow along to find out! I promise you will not be disappointed.


Please make sure to follow along with all my fellow challengers to see all the good design that is to come from this fun challenge!
