One Room Challenge - Week 2 - Fabrics & Craigslist


Hi friends, welcome to ORC Week 2, dang these weeks fly by!
Thanks so much for your excitement and encouragement for our Great Room project
 last week! I'm so excited to share our fabric choices today and give you a better feel
 for our eclectic mix! I was thrilled that my client was on board for a not-so-typical
 color combination.
 As I mentioned in Week 1, we'll be using two gray sofas, we chose pretty, bright
pops of fuchsia, and bold pattern with high contrast to give the room some pizazz.   

Here's a peek at our fabric choices for the first floor of their home,
I thought you'd like to see all of them. :)  
The Great Room choices are the three at Top Center and two at Top Right.  


My favorite paint color, that I've used in three other One Room Challenge rooms, 
 Benjamin Moore - Simply White is the choice once again.
 It's always just so perfect, I can't quit it!   
We chose a marble basket weave tile for the fireplace surround, and were so excited to
 see progress, only to notice the floor tiles they installed weren't correct, they should be
honed black marble. 


Our first Craigslist score was this ornate gold mirror for above the fireplace! Woo hoo! 


These 34" Savoy House sconces will flank the mirror.  

Remember our inspiration pic, our mirror and sconces are both larger in scale. 


This week we're finalizing our decision for the gray sofas, doing two simple DIYs,
and scouring Craigslist for a sofa table.  

Are you following along with all the other ORC participants' projects, such a crazy
 amount of inspiration from lots of favorite bloggers and former ORC designers!
 You can check it out at Linda's @ Calling It Home.

You always find the best things on CL. Unbelievable. The fabrics are gorgeous and that tile is superb. I just love everything that you do.

That space sounds gorgeous! Though how frustrating is it that the wrong tiles were installed. And the tile to the left of the basketweave in the whole collection...I want that for my kitchen right.now.

Pam I adore the direction that your room is headed towards! You did SO much better than I did in my room this week.
