One Room Challenge Fall 2018: Week 5

This Halloween is my scariest yet!  I mean this ORC has me terrified and full of nightmares yet MAJOR progress has finally happened. Whew… we are 90% there and have a solid 10% to go. 

If you are just tuning in, be sure to go HERE for WEEK 1WEEK 2WEEK 3 & WEEK 4 to get caught up.

I will give you a brief look at the progress.

The upper cabinets are in.

The backsplash is in and I am madly in love with this tile.  It is dreamy! 

The star burners from Thermador tie to the New Ravenna Astrology Marble Backsplash. 

The island countertops are in.

The cabinet hardware is in (mostly…Emtek is send a few more because we had an install oops.)

The appliances are in. A few tweaks are needed. The washer is leaking..hence the laundry on the counter…I have never missed a washer until now. We are approaching 7 weeks of no washer, ugh!)

The plumbing is in with the exception of the disposals and 1 faucet.

The lighting is in minus one broken globe. 

Office Wallpaper is in too. So very chic!

The bar is turning out to be a real beauty! 

Art most of which I am going to pull from my existing collection is still in question.

I wish I had a HUGE piece to go over the 96″ banquette.

Speaking of banquette… The banquette is a beauty in Fabricut’s Coastal Stripe #1.  Maple is already claiming it. 

Waffles is just over the whole thing!!!

Wishing for this look from Paige Davis from Hidell Brooks. That addition will have to wait. 


We are anxiously awaiting the Dowel counterstools in Stroheim Vinout in Crocus.
