Welcome to WEEK 5 of the One Room Challenge. See WEEK 1,  WEEK 2,  WEEK 3 and WEEK 4 to get up to date on this semi-annual event where 20 bloggers, made up of Professional Designers, Diy’ers, and Interior Design Bloggers, transform a room from start to finish in 6 weeks.


Being a total procrastinator by nature, my report this week is S H O C K I N G!

I have had photography and am all finished.

I was forced to be on the ball to get this room completed because I am traveling for the next few weeks. I will be in Charleston for The Southern C Summit, home for 18 hours, to Tryon, North Carolina for weekend horseshow, then to LA on Tuesday for Legends of La Cienega. Where I am thrilled to be an ambassador for this event and hang out wit so many fun and talented design friends.

I was also traveling a part of last week but things were still accomplished. The biggest things were the amazing rug installed, curtains installed and the gallery wall hung.  I actually removed some of the chairs I had anticipated using. I thing a more open room just suits this space and there is plenty of seating with extra ottomans and hand stools tucked around.
