Whew, we’ve crossed the finish line!  

Thanks so much for stopping by to check on the One Room Challenge reveal of my

client’s great room! And, a huge thank you to Linda @ Calling It Home for creating this

event that brings our community together to share an abundance of inspiration!   

I’m sharing my client’s great room. Their request was a cozy, comfortable space

for their family of four, and Stella the fur baby, to lounge, watch tv, read and hang

out together. The chic mom didn’t want to forgo style for comfort and asked me to

 incorporate glam, gold, pops of color and zebra print.

They were up for using my favorite, Craigslist finds! 🙂

This leather chair was one of our first Craigslist scores. I knew it would make a great spot for

 reading tucked back in this corner and loved the warmth against our crisp white background. 

This photo shows the best representation of the lively color of our Zahra Caravan rug from

 World Market. 

We used two cushy sofas and several squishy down pillows, perfect for everyone

in the family to comfortably stretch out!

They owned this vintage marble top table and loved the size and sturdiness for propping

 feet up. My client covered the golden tone wood with a coat of  Rub ‘n Buff in Gold Leaf.  

We reupholstered a special chair that had been in the family for years in Ralph 

Lauren zebra print, for a dramatic, yet timeless statement piece.  

We knew we wanted an antique piece in this space and originally planned to use a secretary

 they owned, but fell in love with the details of this one from Craigslist when we were there

 to pick up a console. Pairing it with a modern lucite chair gave us the eclectic style we

were going for.  

They owned this large round side table, it was an ideal size between the sofas, but it also

had a marble top. We turned the top over, painted it all a high gloss white, and trimmed 

the edge in gold Rub ‘n Buff for a pretty detail (more info to come).

The ornate gold mirror was another Craigslist find, and the perfect dose of glam we

 were hoping for to pair with our streamlined sconces. 

We layered a special piece of artwork created by a family member. A a simple

 frame and large mat keeps it from competing with the mirror.   

Yet another Craigslist score was this console we used behind the sofa, it faces the 

kitchen. When I spied it on Craigslist I thought the diagonal pattern (which was originally 

wood) would be pretty if made to look like metal. My client went to town with

  Rub ‘n Buff, and we love the interest it added.   

The oversized distressed media cabinet balances the the 75″ TV and including the

 industrial style compliments the eclectic mix of furniture pieces.   

It’s been a joy to help create this space for such a sweet family, and so fulfilling to see

 them using it exactly as they envisioned. This photo of Stella sums it up perfectly! 🙂

Thank you so much to my wonderful clients for allowing me to share their home with
 all of you and for enduring the six week challenge! We’ve been hard at work on the
 rest of their home and I’ll be filling you in on more details next week.
