Welcome and Thank you for visiting my blog today!
The ONE ROOM CHALLENGE is a six-week challenge to finish a room. It is not a competition but a fun way to share great design and see lots of amazing bloggers, designers and DIYer’s do amazing things in their homes or clients homes.
Every Thursday for the next six weeks you can come back here to see updates of my room and then follow the link of the ORC icon to see all the others.
I have decided to do my LIVING ROOM
Fortunately we have two living spaces in our home and they both function well for our family. The living room is the first room you see when you enter our home. The front door and the back door both lead to this room. I want it to set the tone for my house and style.
Lets talk about style.
My husband and I have differences in this area but I am determined to make it work for us both! He likes a formal, richer look and I like light, bright and comfortable. However we both love antiques, wood tones and details. Since we live in South Carolina I want our home to have a southern vibe and be classic,comfortable, casual and fun.
The plan is to add built ins on the side of the fireplace and add a new mantel. I also want to lighten the mortar on my brick (somehow).
Here is the before:
This is my inspiration photo for the built ins and mantel.
However my t.v. will not be mounted above the fireplace and I have a leather sofa that will stay. New pillows, window treatments and possible two new chairs and coffee table!
We will see…
The fact is this is a BIG project to tackle but it has been on the back burner for years!
Don’t forget to follow me on INSTAGRAM for more on the journey and come back next week to see what I have accomplished.
Thanks for following along.
