Memorial Day Planning ...

I absolutely love a long weekend.  Any extra day I get with my loved ones makes my heart incredibly happy.  Add in a holiday and is there truly anything better?

Decorating with DecoratorsBest

I have absolutely loved using DecoratorsBest wallpaper and fabrics in my last two One Room Challenges projects.  With both the Kitchen and Den reveals behind me I love looking back at all the details that were truly my favorite.

In both spaces I started with one thing that inspired me and built the room from there.  I always have a jumping off point when designing our home.  For the kitchen it was the Clarence House The Vase wallpaper.  I had seen the paper in an episode of Lipstick Jungle about ten years ago and I never forgot it.  When I knew I would be using it in the kitchen I was thrilled to see it was available from DecoratorsBest.

One Room Challenge ... my favorites!

To say there are a bevy of incredible rooms from the last round of the One Room Challenge is truly an understatement.  It is one amazing space after another.  Eye candy that just doesn't seem to end.

Palm Love with Tiffany Erickson


Clearly I am quite a connoisseur of palm anything since I am a Florida girl.  Palm leaves, check. Palm trees, if only they would grow in Atlanta.  Palm prints ... oooh #yesplease.  Just yesterday I posted this incredible shot on Instagram after eyeing it on the feed of the darling Katie Kime.  I might need this canvas in my life in a big way.

Setting the deck for summer ...

I know it is hard to believe, but it will be summer here in Atlanta in just two weeks.  Seriously, where oh where did the time go??  My littles have exactly a week left of school.  Insert emoji scared face here!  How is it that will be another year older.  #wowza

One Room Challenge || The Details Vol. 2

Like I stated in yesterday's post ... the details are the thing that truly make a room for me.  In sharing the details in our den reveal I had to break it down to two posts to truly share the story behind all of the details.  Honestly I could have made it three posts but that just might be overkill.

One Room Challenge || The Details vol. 1

I can not even begin to tell you how excited I am you loved the Den Reveal.  The emails, the comments, the texts, the calls ... each and every single one means the world to me.  We absolutely love the new space and all the light it provides in the house.  I still can not believe it is done and we get to enjoy this room.  Every morning I am greeted with light and color and nothing makes me happier.  It is like a present every single day. I am grateful for each and every one of you and the dedication you have to me and my blog.  Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Laundry Room Upgrade with Persil ProClean


Our laundry room was completed for the Spring round of the One Room Challenge last year.  I was thrilled with the results and we have loved every single thing about it.  I dare to say I have even enjoyed laundry over the last year.  #mindblown

One Room Challenge || Spring Reveal

It is here ... it is really here.  I say it every single time a One Room Challenge ends and it holds true every single time.  It feels like Christmas morning!!  Six weeks of hard work, more problems than I care to discuss, a ton of hard work, and the support of every single person close to me.  The room is complete and I can not wait to show you each and every amazing photo.  I love this room so much, probably more than I should.  I can honestly say it is my favorite One Room Challenge transformation and in a few moments you will see why.  The change is incredible if I do say so myself!


Today is the day I have been working toward for six weeks, the day the den is shown in her newly transformed 2016 self.  I have worked with amazing sponsors and I am incredibly grateful to Linda of Calling it Home for asking me to be a part of this fabulous round.  The lineup this round was so fantastic and I can not wait to read each and every reveal of the other 19 invited guests and the more than 200 participating linking participants.  I mean ... how exciting is today?

Let's chat quickly about the journey.  When I began six weeks ago I started with a 1982 Georgian wood paneled den.  The wood was gorgeous and we had happily lived with it for 12 years but both the Hubs and I were ready for a change.  The judges paneling created a cozy space in the winter but other times of the year left us with a dark room always needing at least two more lamps.  It was time for a change ... and we decided the change would be a big one.

Before ...




And the plan for transforming the room ...  

 

White walls, a pink ceiling, tons of color and a fabulous green velvet sofa.  My vision came true in the best way possible.  I honestly didn't know how much I would fall in love with a white room.  If you told me I would be swooning over a white room I would have giggled and said ... I don't think so. I would have been very, very wrong.  I am absolutely thrilled with the final results.  Every single morning that I walk downstairs and round the corner is incredible.  The bright white room is the perfect greeting to start my day.  I know, I know I am stalling but you will forgive me in just a minute.  #pinkyswear

And the after ... our brand new den!

You can catch up here -
Week 1 ... Before 

I was beyond blessed to work with our incredible sponsors - 

I also had the privilege of working with these amazing companies - 

Photos by the incredible Christina Wedge who never worked so hard!

Thank you Linda for creating the One Room Challenge. You work so incredibly hard for each and every one of us that are privileged to participate.  I have six amazing spaces in my home that I can thank you for helping me and encouraging me to create.  Our house is so much more a home and we have you to thank for that!

Thank you House Beautiful Magazine.   It has been a pleasure creating this space with your amazing magazine as the first media sponsor.  I have loved and read House Beautiful for many years and this was truly a dream come true to design a space featured on both the House Beautiful website and Instagram.  No pinching please ... I don't want to wake up!  

If you need me the next few days I will be glued to my computer reading each journey of the other 19 participants.  After week 1 I lost the time to read the updates and I can not wait to dive in and read from beginning to end!  Make sure you do the same ... you don't want to miss out on any of this incredible eye candy and design inspiration!!  And then I will be diving into the more than 240 linking participants.  Can we just discuss this fabulous fact?  Bam ... that is a lot of changed rooms!!

If I missed a source let me know in the comments!  I will be soaking up the new den in my jams today reading every single update from each and every participant.  I truly can not wait!!
