Whew, we’ve crossed the finish line!
Thanks so much for stopping by to check on the One Room Challenge reveal of my
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.

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.
