One Room Challenge Fall 2018 Week 3

Well better late than never is all I have to say this week, since I am posting this on Saturday instead of Thursday. It has just been one of those weeks! I do have progress going on in the space though.

These pillows are making there way to me as I type.

I am debating my art choice now, if anyone has an opinion please weight in! Painting is underway and I am hoping to hope out this afternoon to see about finding any vintage side tables for the space.

One Room Challenge Fall 2018 - Week 2

One Room Challenge

We are at week two in the One Room Challenge and I haven’t got a ton done yet to show off but I did receive a couple of items. You can check out my first week post here. I definitely have to get my butt in gear for this coming week so that I’m not scrambling last minutes to get everything done.

Wasser Coffee Table
Pascoe Blue/Grey & Silver Area Rug

I am really happy with both items, so we are off to a good start! The table is a great size and looks exactly as pictured. The rug is even better than I had expected and has some deep grey/brown running through it. I have come to the conclusion that I need to paint the trim, walls and ceiling the same colour which I selected Soot By Benjamin Moore. I have the walls currently painted Van Deusen Blue by Benjamin Moore which is a great colour but I am looking for deeper dramatic look in my den.


This is the look and feel I want my space to have.

One Room Challenge Fall 2018

One room challenge guest participant

Hello and welcome to the One Room Challenge! I have been wanting to join into this challenge for awhile but it never seemed to align. I am pushing myself to do it even though I may be a bit tight on time:) I have chosen to complete a room in my own house that needs some LOVE, my den. It is a small space that is off of my dining room and has an opening to my living room. I am going for a moody inviting space. We often hang out here and entertain in the space for drinks and apps pre and post dinner. Here is the feel that I am after.

Here is my concept mood board. I will be adding some vintage finds as well as I have to figure out end tables, lamps or wall sconces beside the sofa.
