One Room Challenge Fall 2015: Week 5

Things are finally happening around this joint!  

Goodies have been installed, shipped, delivered, scheduled to be delivered, etc…If all goes as planned I should be ready to show you quite a transformation.

I am loving the direction and pray my vision comes to fruition as I see it. 


See my ORC WEEK 1,  WEEK 2,  WEEK 3 and WEEK 4 if you are just tuning in.  

Updates this week:

 Find and install the sideboard piece

The lovely folks at Bernhardt helped me secure the stunning Salon buffet in a pinch.  I am working on delivery later this week. 


This late addition to the art addiction is by Hayley Mitchell featured in this weeks Artist Spotlight Series. She is a true STUNNER. She will have her own wall and is scheduled to arrive Saturday. Fingers crossed! 


Curtain install scheduled Nov 30th

The pic gives too much away…wait for it.

A trip to Lowes was in order too.  I picked up the perfect vacuum that I have been coveting for the dog hair  / allergy issue. and the required zillion hooks for my installer. I only use OOKs. They are the very best for hanging. 


Some of my favorite other ORC Gallery Walls past…




and my showhouse room…

Install Wallpaper in Bookshelves

Lindsay Cowles Wallpaper love!  So good right?

    Wow so much happening. The wallpaper is such a fun addition. You are so brave with art walls. I just finished mine and it sent me into a state of complete indecision and panic. Good luck getting it all finished.

    I am always so inspired by your color and pattern layering skills. It looks so happy and fun. Can’t wait.
