It's finally (and already!) here...the final reveal of our One Room Challenge family room remodel. We have to give a huge thank you to Linda, of the blog Calling It Home, who is the mastermind and hostess of this challenge. She graciously opens up her blog to any and all souls brave enough to make over a room in a 6-week time frame, and she's our biggest cheerleader along the way. As most who have done this challenge can attest, without Linda we wouldn't have nearly the level of completion, detail, or prettiness in our final results (because seriously, when do you have the luxury of such focused attention on your own home?!) So thank you Linda! And thank YOU lovely readers and new friends for following along!
And now without further ado, we are excited to show you our final room reveal!
Eeep!! We're in dreamland. OK, sorry, but can we just pause to remember where we started?
OK, sorry. No more of those. That was then...and this is now!
Above is the view that greets you when you come into this room from the house. When your layout requires the back of a sofa to greet an entry, putting a small desk behind it is a great trick. Especially when there's an excess amount of space behind the sofa, this is a terrific treatment. It is not only lovely visually, but it's practical! It provides a great spot for a laptop or homework without having to leave the company of family.
We designed this custom console table and had Ryan, Laura Irion's husband, build it. He nailed it! We chose a piece of quarter-sawn white oak. Our favorite part is the modern design at the corners. It's ultra heavy and so beautiful. It's also functional- LP finally has a spot to set her coffee as she's gathering bags and heading out the door. Ryan says he's ready to open our custom furniture division anytime. :)
These pillows, along with the custom drapery rods, are from Loom Decor. They're exceptional weight and fullness...no more wimpy pillows! We would highly recommend them for window hardware as well; They were able to custom cut to the full length of our wall- almost 19'- and they're great quality.
This has been such a fun and wild ride, all worth it as LP is sooo enjoying her new room. She admits its actually distracting to live in a place so beautiful. So, you know, the rest of us should be grateful we live in hovels. Haha.
