One Room Challenge: Week Six - The Reveal!

I made it! Whew. Thanks to Linda at

Calling it Home

for lighting the fire I needed to put this room to bed (so to speak).

The mission for the room?

To make it fun, colorful and a happy place for an 11 year old girl to wake up in!

Fyi - this post will feature mostly the images from my daughter's new space. All links to products and fabrics are at the end of the post.

Let's not forget the closet...

One thing I've learned because I've done a lot of teen/young adult rooms (after doing their parent's spaces) is that when you do it 100% of the way down to the last little detail and take in their input (my daughter chose the wallpaper and it snowballed from there...)

they really tend to keep the space clean and neat. I have walked into spaces I've done 2 years later and the parents will tell me this. Once it's neat and clean and pretty they want it to stay that way!! BONUS!!!  

Thanks to my friend

One Room Challenge - Dining Room Reveal

Well, it's a wrap. 
Not a total makeover but a good old-fashioned refresh.

To do list:

New lighting - purchased new lamps. Contemplated more modern chandy and sconces. Didn't get that far:)

New carpet - ordered but not in so I borrowed the chunky one from my family room. Totally works.  Most likely will like it better than the one I ordered.

New mirror- check.
Paint furniture - did that.
Bar cart? - borrowed from living room but its staying.
New art - yep. not sure if its staying... jury's still out.
Host chairs- ordered not here yet but did borrow these two Lee Industries chairs and they look fab:)

I installed the wall covering about 4 years ago but I wanted to paint below the chair rail the cool blue/minty green found in the background of the paper to wrap my room in that fabulous color. Probably should have painted crown and base boards???

And the star of the show... the window treatments. Thank god they made it and were hung last night.

Feel of the room that I was shooting for?
Pretty, classic and tailored yet bright and cheery!

So check it out below...

 

The pillows you see in this shoot were not fabricated for this space... they're actually for a client but they looked so good in here that I'll drop them to her tomorrow! Thanks L! xo
 
 
Window treatments are a two-step cornice box with lined panels made of 100% silk and trimmed in a 2 1/2 inch wide, bright orange trim.
This is the only delicate material in the room. I placed benches in front of the windows too keep dog noses and kid's hands at arms length.

Bar cart is Bungalow 5.
 
 
 My furniture was professionally painted in high-gloss revere pewter from Benjamin Moore. Tip: This is the perfect neutral  paint if you want to keep your room and furniture light and airy... looks much lighter on furniture than it does on walls and I LOVE it!!
 
 

 

 



 









This is what the room looked like before I started.... not horrible but unfinished.


And Now


 
By the way I love these window treatments so much I find myself staring at them constantly smiling inside:)


So there you have it!!

Thanks for reading!!

Thanks to my girlfriend Joanne Posse photography who took these pictures! LOVE her! And to Steph Shaw Designs for her advice and support and NB for the ice bucket! HA!

Check out the rest of the linking participants here! I'm heading over now:) Thanks to Linda at Calling it Home to compel me to finish this space~ xoxo

A before and an "almost" after of a client living room!

Blue and white vs. Red and Gold... thoughts?
Sharing this post at the Pink Pagoda Blue and white bash -- join me here.



We have been working on this space for quite some time now and we're still not finished but I thought I'd share anyway.
What the heck?

The feeling we were going for is a very casual living room (not stuffy or fancy) where this family of six can hang out and watch TV, do homework and have family game night!

Here is the ALMOST done:




Here are the Befores:
Get ready for some red and gold people!
