One Room Challenge | Week 5 | Loading in the Stuff

October 30, 2014

One Room Challenge Linking Participant

Another week has gone by and more work has been done on the #OneRoomChallenge space.  This Heywood Wakefield Dream is turning out to be a very special project because my client has an emotional attachment to the meaning behind this rooms design.  The West Elm loveseat and chair have been delivered and the vintage refinished Heywood Wakefield casegoods are complete, so that means that all of the big items are in the room and  I am loading in all the “stuff” to make it come alive.

Check out everything I have done up to this point:

Week 1: All Before Photos and The Design Plan

Week 2: Shopping at West Elm

Week 3: Painting, Refinishing vintage Heywood Wakefield pieces, and Reviving some thrift store cantilever chairs

Week 4: Taking care of a few issues like dealing with artwork that was too small of scale, where to plug in a lamp, and hanging a mirror on top of a mirror

I got these amazing gray and white geometric pattern drapery panels at HomeGoods and I love how this whole mix of colors are happening.  These are being hung up today!

Sneak Peek!

This faux stone table lamp is yet another source of light to go on the Heywood Wakefield side table.

Then I loaded up a basket and raided my Etsy shop for vintage accessories.  I think I kind of did an overkill, but you can never have too many options.

Here are a few pics of items I pulled:

Now I am having a “jazz hand” moment in this incredible starburst mirror… (sorry, I get really corny when I am excited, blame it on seeing too many musicals and my vocal coach)

…that is going to be hung up over the West Elm Anders Chair.

Oh, my clients cute puppy keeps distracting me!

And now the room is ready for it’s last detail…GREENERY!  A few clippings and I am off to take pictures for the reveal next week.  Be sure to come back next Thursday, November 6th to see the completed room.
