ONE ROOM CHALLENGE REVEAL





I feel like it's graduation day.....that these 6 weeks have actually been 6 years and I am a brain surgeon now.  

OK...that is a stretch but I am sure as a med student you sometimes think....WTH was I thinking.

Well....I am sure if I interview some of the others in my "squadron" we have all thought at some time or another "dayum......this sounded like a good idea at the time".

And a good idea it is because Lord knows.... how many times have we looked at a certain room and said "somebody light a fire under me to get this done!"

ORC=fire is lighted.

Linda....the ex-bunny thanks you as she has been the happy reciprocate of 2 ORC's!  We are already planning other room makeovers if I get invited back!  

By the way.....we need to figure out a "virtual" wrap party:)  


.....The One Room Challenge Reveal


If for some weird reason you stumbled here today and you are scratching you head.....get all the 411 here!

So you don't have to keep going back and forth I am going to show the before shots again over at "The Bunny Hutch".


Before

Let's pull this room together.....

After

I just can not take a picture into a window on a sunny day....it is above my pay scale:)

I found this brass chest at a yard sale for $10.00!


Three fabulous design books....



Before

The TV was moved because of the following reasons:  Mantel too high and room just too small.

After

My gallery wall courtesy of Minted and Ashley Hizer.

Lamps Plus....another sponsor helped us update that 20 year old ceiling fan!



Before
Hot mess.....

After

Those 10 year old Mitchell Gold chairs I had reupholstered are perfect for extra seating.  By keeping them neutral it helped with not closing in the space too much.

Before


After

We painted her old black console and added new knobs.  The cabinets flanking the FP finally got built after 10 years!



Love these pillows from Spark Modern


This cute little lamp is from Target.....we auditioned quite a few but this simple one was the winner:)



Before

After

You might notice I never did put any trim on the curtains....I could not make a decision.....and sometimes in my world it means that I should leave it be.


Blue Pillows from Designs By Sudi and paisley pillows from Southern Shades


Sweater Pillow from Pottery Barn


This is the best I could do getting a shot of the sheer linen relaxed roman shades [courtesy of Sudi] we installed above the 2 small windows....




What cha think about the wallpaper?  I can't tell you how much impact it made in the room....

This awesome art came from Marquin Designs
I planned on using it in my house but it fit so perfectly here.....

Before


After



Here is where the black bench landed....
With a floor lamp on either side for light.

Heading over to the dining area.....

Before

After

The chairs got a new coat of black paint....


Before

After
Here you can see where the wallpaper ends and we started the planking....which wrapped around into the kitchen.

The light fixture is definitely one of my favorite things....


The buffet got painted the same color as the console with the same knobs.


We needed some pattern over on this side of the room.....and these recovered beauties helped.




If you have not fallen asleep yet or moved on here is the last part of the makeover:)

Before

After
I love the lights we ordered from one of our sponsors Wayfair




 I purchased this botanical at Scott's years ago.  I never had a space for it in my house which is sad right?  I told her it is on loan.....


Here you can see where it hangs.....


This is Sweet Pea's favorite place on the Pottery Barn sectional!

OK.....listen up.....  All details Friday!  So come back and I will answer any questions you could possibly have.

Linda....you hard working girl.  Thank you so much for including me again and working so darn hard getting us some fabulous sponsors!  You are full of awesomeness:)

I am beyond excited to check out all the reveals today.....Let's do it!


Pin It!

Sherry,
This ORC is beyond fabulous! I know your sister must be thrilled, and too.
This ORC was like three in one, you've got to be exhausted.
The colors and textures are relaxed yet elegant.
Congrats! Another stellar ORC in the books!!

Everything is so beautiful. Love the wallpaper and then where the planking begins. The dining table light is fantastic. Your botanical chart is stunning - she might lock you out of her house if you really want to come back for it :) Looks like a very nice space to Iive in.

Doreen said...

Perfection!!! Love every single thing you did. Can we be sisters!!!

Dana Frieling said...

Stop it! Will you please, just once, show us a less than gorgeous room so the rest of us will feel better about ourselves?! Ha! ha! Just kidding. Seeing your finished rooms is always a treat.

Laurie at Bird in Hand Vintage said...

Absolutely gorgeous! (I could move right in). Of all the designers that I follow, you are my favorite (gushing). Love how you juxtapose vintage with modern, textures, color - all perfect yet comfortable.

Blown away, once again!! Your talent for details and styling are top-notch! I love the layered, collected look and it seems so much more functional, besides being gorgeous!!!

Cindy said...

This is unbelievable! How did you do that!!! I don't even know where to begin with what i like best about it all... but the light fixture has to be up there at the top. Also love the linen sectional and the chairs you recovered. That chest/coffee table for 10 bucks was an awesome find and so unique! I have to go back and look at it all again and soak up all the amazing touches you added...
Wow...

Cindy

Carol@6WilsonBlog.com said...

Oh Sherry! I don't even know what to say or where to start. It is all MAGNIFICENT!!!! EVERY.SINGLE.DETAIL. I love love the natural textures of the fireplace and the grass as the backdrops to it all. I am moved to design tears. Honest. Modern. Natural. Organic. Classic. Oh god. Cannot get better. Thank you for doing the orc and sharing your talent.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh wow, what a beautiful transformation. I love the black/white and the touch of brass. Everything is so well done.

Susie @ Maddie G Designs said...

Each time, you outdo yourself. The grasscloth and the planks....the styling, everything. So good!

Kathysue said...

Sherry, I wish you could see the big grin on my face right now. THIS IS FABULOUS. I love every single element you used in this room. It is cohesive, warm and inviting. Two elements I am coveting that have been on my radar are the tobacco basket, oh my WANT!!! and To paint my windsor chairs black,(hubby is the problem on that count) Honestly you are an amazing talent!!
xo Kathysue

Christina Baker said...

Sherry!!! I have no idea how you did all of this! Your hard work is SOOOOO obviously present! I adore the little pops peach, corals, teals and reds. They are so perfectly placed. The silver and black and white just allows everything to shine without competing with each other. The entire room is so stylish yet still feels like a room for living. I am so so happy for and proud of you!!

xoxo,
c.

sarahsofiaproductions said...

I can see why it's Sweet Pea's favorite spot to cozy up! What a transformation in the main ORC living space and then spilled over into your breakfast nook and kitchen! I love your new gallery wall with the TV and art! The mantle really stands out with a few pieces. Those chairs turned out fab! I love the buffet too in the breakfast nook/dinning area! BRAVO to a job well done times 3! You deserve to cuddle up on the sofa next to Sweet Pea! It's been a pleasure seeing your work as a participant in ORC! Hope to see you again next round!

Elizabeth@ Pine Cones and Acorns said...

This is unbelievable! I love it all! IT lookslike a different house! There is so much to take in I have to go back to look at the photos again!

autumn said...

WOW! this is like the gift that keeps on giving! i can't believe that you tackled three spaces in this challenge, and each of them is, of course, awesome. the grasscloth is such a beautiful addition, and i love that the touches of color and texture translate so well from one space to the next. the space is so comfortable and casual looking, and yet has such a refined and sophisticated flair! the KW pillows are insanely great with the more traditional elements too! LOVE!!

Normangirl said...

Dang...can your parents adopt me so I can be your sister?

Jill Sorensen-LiveLikeYou said...

Whoa what a complete transformation! Such a sophisticated and warm space now. Elegantly designed!!!

Julie Khuu | Haute Khuuture said...

What a perfect space for a family escape. I love that nothing looks overdone or too "designed"...like I could easily plop down on one of those comfy cushions and just zone out for the day. That's an amazing accomplishment in such a short amount of time!

Xx- Julie
Peace. Love. LOL!

Oh and planking. You kill me with the wall planking. That WILL happen in my house.

Great job Sherry!

Albertina M. Cisneros said...

This is stunning Sherry!! You are the world's best sister! The grasscloth really works wonders and I just love how everything fits together. I love a god sectional and that one is a great one. They are so practical. Your styling is unbelievable and I just adore the breakfast prep area...not sure what you would call this. And you really did three rooms in one! This is beautiful. I hope your sister pampers you a whole a lot more after this!!

The Pink Pagoda said...

Your sister must just LOVE the ORC!! Gorgeous transformation, Sherry! Everything is beautiful!

designchic said...

It looks amazing, Sherry and you win the sister of the year award!! Loving the black and white and of course, your pillows!!

Tobe | BIA said...

Sherry!!!! This is fabulous. I want to vacation here in a big way. SUCH a comfortable yet refined look. And you know I love that brass chest :) Love how you kept the spaces cohesive with so many elements, but it doesn't feel matchy. The wallpaper is nails and the kitchen sconces are TDF. Well done, lady! ox

Linda @ a design snack said...

Holy Moly Rocky! This is one shafabulous transformation! Your sister is one lucky sibling. Congratulations. I love it!

Stephanie said...

Sherry,

This is absolutely beautiful. I love everything about it. You did such an amazing job. I can't decide what's my favorite. I'll definitely be saving these pics for inspiration!

Mary-Irene said...

I can't get enough of this fabulous makeover!! So much inspiration in one blog post! You did an amazing job tying it all together and your rooms flow so beautifully. I just love the kitchen makeover too. This is like 3 room makeover - but my house is similar in that the dining and living rooms are connected. I love the PB sectional. We are looking to purchase something similar to bring our LR together more. Great job-- one of my favorites of the ORC.

gina said...

You have done it once again! This is absolutely gorgeous. If your sister does not want to be the recipient of ORC again I WILL. I love your style!

René said...

If I could just have you at my house one day, ONE DAY! Bravo again Sherry! Your sister is so lucky to have you!

Linda Darling said...

This room is incredibly gorgeous. You have really inspired me. Please give more detailed sources on products, furniture, decorative items, etc. The rug appears to be the diamond patterned rug from Potterybarn?

mrs. V | Chez V said...

After six weeks, I feel like a rocket surgeon, ready to shoot the moon AND perform open heart. You earned your degree sister - the bunny hutch is KILLER. HUGE improvement! Soooo many wonderful details - grasscloth, planking, coffee bar, and light are a few of my favorite things. You are a master at neutrals - so hard to get right, and you do it every. single. time. Shall I bring the booze?

Anonymous said...

Sherry, your designs are perfect every single time!! Tasteful, balanced, never over the top, subtle yet SO full of impact. That's crazy talent!! You are my favorite designer ever. Would love to know how much was spent in the entire makeover...just for giggles.

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Sherry...it looks beautiful..I love the chandelier...

Susan said...

Sherry, you are so funny. I love your blog and always look forward to your posts. Everything looks beautiful! I am always in awe of your work.

Holly Irwin Fine Art said...

Congrat's Sherry! It's fabulous down to every last detail! What a talent you are!

Cindy Hattersley said...

You are a genius Sherry honestly. There are so many elements to love. Love the bench between the two chairs. Painting the console white was genius. Love the tobacco basket. It really gives the space character and texture! Love the funky light above the table.

Debra Phillips said...

shafabulous,WOW oh WOW!!!

Marion Darbyshire said...

Absolutely love the makeover! Can you please share the info. about the wallpaper - where to get it, what's the pattern number and color! If you already shared this information please forgive the repetition as I'm new to your blog. Thanks so much and you did a great job!

Vanessa@decor happy said...

I was waiting to see this and it is so worth the wait. Your sister must be thrilled and you get to enjoy it too when you visit her. The soft use of colour and the styling is perfection. You can't do wrong in my books Sherry - love everything you do!

Abby M. Interiors said...

Oh girl, this is just wonderful and as usual you had me cracking up! We do feel like a surgeon by the end. So much time and effort!

Your sister is blessed to have you! I'm sure she knows this. You basically did three rooms and made them look insanely gorgeous, stylish, and put together. That wallpaper...the light...the new kitchen area..be still my heart. xx

Naz said...

That bunny must sure be pleased and happy. The wallpaper brings everything together. Great job.

Linda {Calling it Home} said...

I think I just scrolled for ten minutes to get to the bottom of your comments. OK, 2 rooms, you show off. I love ya and you always deliver. Looks amazing, I am sure there is one happy bunny.

Holly Gruszka said...

Ahhh...I must have got interrupted somehow and missed that styling coffee bar genius toward the end of your post! Gorgeous Sherry...you are the styling design DIVA. Rock on!!

Kim@The Green Room Interiors said...

So basically you redid the entire bunny hutch in 6 weeks? I can't believe what you've accomplished! That grasscloth is perfection and combined with the plank walls its even better but then add in your incredible styling skills. Whew! Fabulous!

Suzy Handgraaf said...

You did a FABULOUS job, Dr. Sherry! :) If you ever get bored and decide you'd like to makeover a room in NC, just let me know!

erin williamson said...

Sherbear -- thank you for always keeping it classy and sassy! You are amazing.

xo,
Erin

kate@willowinteriors said...

Wow!! Finally making it through these rooms and Sherry, this is gorgeous!! That $10 chest, the mirror over the fireplace, those handles (!!!), everything but my fave is the wallpaper. It transforms the room! And then the dining and the kitchen (okay, that whole wall might be my favorite). Love all the art too!!! Well done!

angela | the painted house said...

Texture, coziness, high, low--for the perfect Sherry mix! All your hard work, all the saving and repurposing, all the finds (that brass trunk!)--paid off! And what I admire most about you is that you are so good at what you do, but you are still so kind and humble and generous to those around you. You're a good egg!

Anonymous said...

You are amazing, another wonderful job!

On the little Mercury looking Target lamp, is the lamp shade also from target, did you add the yarn (looks like yarn)?

Laurie from Laurie Jones Home said...

Sherry, it’s good, I mean really damn good! Everything you do is out of the ball park good! Did I mention its good???? Seriously though another beautiful transformation!!
