One Room Challenge: Week 6

Long time no see!  I've had some REAL issues arise with internet at home and the shop.  It's a season of change for phone, internet, and utilities in both of my spaces.  I've been updating things both internally and externally.  But, hopefully, as of tomorrow, we will have U-verse and I won't be constantly trying to gain access thru a "sometime operable word they call "tethering"".  Fingers crossed {With as few glitches as possible}.

The one room challenge was a REAL challenge to complete for me in six weeks.  I want to thank the sweet and talented Linda for inviting me along for such a fun and fabulous ride.  Thank you Linda!

All in all, my one room challenge literally was done and complete by six weeks.  My last installation took place on week six.

I love it.  My client loves it and I hope it will be loved by many of you. What do you think?  You can reserve your comments for the real photography, in case it's hard to see or if you just plain hate it.  These are just snapshot sneak peeks by me.

See the tapestry that we decided to mount to a frame?  I found that at the Ozarks Greater Garage Sale for a song. That has been my most favorite find.  I think it ties so well with the drapes and bohemian styled console.

The drapes are by loniemae.  Kendra and her mom exceed my wildest expectations every time.  Quality work.  On a deadline.  With some slight hurdles.  Thank you ladies!  I love you and I love your work!!!

Pillows from sweden are from  They are my absolute favorite.  $192 a piece.  Which is a bit expensive for my liking, but well worth it for tying all my colors together.  A little luxurious touch that goes a long way!

The bed is not quite ironed out yet.  We never found a screen to go behind it..  But I found the most amazing sconce thru one of my best friend's Joann, who's also an antique dealer.  I think the sconce screaming for tall kelley green candlesticks, like Barry Dixon shows in all his interior design projects.  I messaged him to ask him where he got his.  He was kind enough to reply!  Did you know he's from the Ozarks?  Check his work out if you have time.  He's an inspiration and a gentle soul.

Okay, jumping back to where I was...What do you think of the bed setting?  Maybe a screen behind it too??  Just haven't found a cool one I like as of yet.

The bedspread is by sferra {Fine luxury linens}.  The pillow cases are again my logo design template that I had screenprinted onto some Euro shams.  I absolutely love how they turned out.

The wall art and bed-bench are from  Ufan is the artist.  The bench is by by ottoman empire.  I love it's classic lines which transition from casual to luxurious so well.

The blue and white ikat duvet cover is from  I feel like it mimics the Ufan water droplet-type prints.

So as you can see I love to use a mix of flea market finds mixed with online/new purchases.

What is your favorite part?  I'd love to hear.

DO please take a look at the other's final one room challenge end alls. They are quite inspiring!

It looks great. I love so much of it. I want to see more...when will the professional pictures be up? Am I allowed to have two favorites? I love that rug, and the blue chairs. I remember the post that you did about them. They are great. I want to see the salmon hand-painted cabinet. I'll be back.

Sharon, I absolutely LOVE this room!! I can't wait to see the professional pics! Loving the ikat duvet cover, I like what it brings to the room. Love the framed tapestry AND the console that sits under it!!! All and all, I just love all the materials and colors you mixed... You think outside the box and that's what I love about your work:) You are truly a natural designer/decorator, you were born with it! Some people go to school for years and years and don't "get it" the way you do. I'm so proud to call you my friend:)

Linda, thanks so much! I am not sure when I'll have better photos. Soon I hope. Thanks again for the fun ride. I'd love to do it again. Maybe when my client doesn't live 45 minutes away.

Missy, you are always so sweet! You do like it? Wow. I owe you some ice cream sodas or something really yummy! Made my day that you call me a natural. AND I'm so proud you're my friend! Wishing for a coffee date soon. Are you all well?

Missy said...

I love every square inch - it's perfect!! Yes, coffee date soon!!! Or a craft night... Just finished my basement. It needs some left over glitter on the floor and a few wine spills;)
