One Room Challenge - Week 1 - The Great Room


Thanks so much for stopping by to follow along with another One Room Challenge!
 And, a huge thank you to Linda @ Calling It Home for organizing this fabulous event
 for our blogging community!
Nothing like deciding to jump on board last minute, I had planned to sit out this round
 and cheer on my pals from the sidelines. 
In keeping with my personality I changed my mind!    
I've been working with a client on the design for their newly built home and hadn't considered
participating until another client (last ORC Bedroom Reveal) mentioned it. I'd always
 associated the ORC with more of a makeover and a boatload of DIY projects
 (see my previous ORCs below!).
Well, we're starting with a beautiful clean slate that doesn't require any of that, and
 although I know many do it, I feel kind of guilty (I'm sure I'll get over it!).
I promise I'll have some sort of DIYs so I don't feel like a slacker!

I'll be sharing my client's Great Room, we're creating a cozy, comfortable space for
their family of four and golden doodle to lounge, watch tv, read, and hang out together.  
Their stylish mom loves glam, pops of color and zebra.
We'll be refreshing some furniture they own, purchasing a few beautiful statement
 pieces, and of course, using unique Craigslist finds. :)  Fingers crossed! 

  The Plan:

collected, timeless, mix of styles
white walls
white drapes
neutral with pops of color
ornate gold mirror over mantle
statement sconces
pair of gray sofas
zebra
leather
rustic media console

   Inspiration Rooms:

The Design Co.
 Designers - Lucas Studios


Before:  

Unfortunately, I didn't plan on the ORC and didn't take photos of blank white walls, so this
 is it for now. Envision big blank wall to left, and windows to right....sorry, I'll have some soon!


I did take a photo of their stunning staircase. :)

We'll be using this secretary, previously in their son's bedroom.


This antique marble coffee table will work its way into the plan.

As will this fun chair.

That's it for this week friends,
next week I'll be sharing our fabric plan and our first Craigslist find!

Ha ha! I love that you feel guilty that you are not doing a "makeover"! I love your ORC projects! I'm sure it will be beautiful and I have no doubt there will be a DIY or two thrown in along with a craigslist find I'm sure! Cheering you on as I work on putting our closet back together!

I can already tell this might be my favorite ORC of yours yet! Looking forward to the journey, Pam!

Yay! So glad you decided to participate! I looked at all the ORC participants yesterday and didn't see your name and was disappointed you weren't in the mix this time. But I know you're super busy and can understand if you had to sit this one out. So happy to see that you are now in the challenge and I will be cheering you on! Your inspiration, work, creativity just always amazes me and I look forward to following along.
