ONE ROOM CHALLENGE WEEK 4





Week 4 of the ORC has arrived which means 2 short weeks to go.  Yikes.  

Just to recap.....if this is your first visit we have 20 designers....one room.....and 6 small weeks.  Emphasis on the 6 small weeks!



The CEO of all this is Linda from Calling It Home

I'm not gonna sugarcoat it....a challenge it is.

Enough yakking  right?  How about we get to the updates of the "bunny hutch" now.

I am doing my sister's [a former Playboy Bunny] family room.  You can read more about her here



The cabinets on both sides of the FP got painted and we decided on hardware.


That would be these from Anthropologie .
Swanky huh.



Those Mitchell Gold chairs came back from the upholster and  they look pretty darn great against the wallpaper.


I had a moment of panic that the whole room was looking like a bowl of oatmeal Translation: boring

The wallpaper was definitely a game changer.


I love how it looks next to the planks.


TV was moved....




The butcher block countertops


We have real progress in the kitchen with paint and shelves done!


Let's see....what else

After I saw Abby's great collection from Minted  [one of our sponsors] I got on the ball and ordered a few pieces to go along with my Ashley Hizer painting.  I didn't want to give it up but I think it will be perfect in "the hutch"!


At Scott's I purchased a small bench to go behind the sofa.  It was a steal at 40.00!


The light fixture was hug and I kind of love it.
You know me and "patina"....we're buds:)


And now the real work begins....putting the room together and styling it.  

We all know that this is where things can go wrong.....always scared.

But whatev.  We aren't curing cancer here.

I am eager to see the updates from everyone else.

That grasscloth is gorgeous Sherry! And the pillow fabric, the nailhead detail on the upholstery.....can't wait to see it all come together!

Aside from the art, which is fabulous, and your post putting such a smile on my face, (you always have a way of making me laugh) I absolutely love the clean organic feel you are incorporating into your sister's room. Everything is falling together so nicely! Can't wait to see it complete.

whatevs. You could style a room with your eyes closed and it would look smashing. You got this. Now you are making me panicky with all of your real progress.

Texture, texture, texture!! YOU my dear are the master at spreading texture around a room so effortlessly, making it look simple but I know it is not simple, It is a well thought out design. It is looking amazing. LOVE the drawer pulls, those are GREAT!!!! Can't wait to see it when you finish her up!! Great job, you have a cheerleader in me,

Love it all ... I am truly drooling over the light fixture. I have that patina love as well ... kind of a sickness I am thinking! You deserve lots of bunny love!

Abby and I were just agreeing that you are always so consistently good. I love the shelves and lighting, the hardware, the grass, on and on. You have such an identifying look, but with a twist for every client. You.just.rock.

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

I want to see a full view of the planks and wallpaper. It is looking amazing. I saw those knobs at Antro, and wanted to find a place to use them. Love them. Styling is your middle name, so this will be in the bag soon.
