The BEFORE (equally beautiful home of my parents):

Things I would still like to do…there is always more…

  • I would like to recover the white chair seats in the Clarence House fabrics.  
  • I also would like to take out the grill. I need an idea of what to do in that space. Thoughts? I do not need another bar…do I just fill with firewood?
  • Cushions for the chairs at the backgammon table or even parsons upholstery chairs
  • Ceiling wallpaper…I cannot find one that is just right.

Are you not familiar with crazy 6 weeks?

The One Room Challenge™, currently in its thirteenth season, is a widely anticipated biannual event every April and October. Each round, twenty design bloggers take the challenge and transform a space. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing their sources and professional advice over the six weekly posts.

    Smashing! Who would want to leave this room?! The art, the fabrics, the colors-seriously sensational.

  • May 9, 2018

    WOW! WOW! WOW! I can’t believe that is the same room. I have to say I wasn’t sure how you were going to pull this one off and make all those crazy colors go together, but you did it, and this room is freaking spectacular! I truly love it.

  • May 9, 2018

    I’m blown away! The art and fabric choices are so layered and makes the whole even better than the pieces. Would you mind sharing the size of the Gray Malin photos? Thank you!

    I knew yours wouldn’t disappoint! Every detail is worth pausing on. Beautifully done!

    Fantastic job! I just love how you kept a few of the antiques and the brick and incorporated all the color and white. Such a great rendition of your style and the history of your lovely home. 🙂

  • May 10, 2018

    Wow, this room has had quite the transformation! I absolutely love all the bright colors and different textures, they come together and complement one another so well! Congratulations on another beautiful space and a hard-working six weeks!

  • May 10, 2018

    WOW! I’m blown away by how rich and layered this space is in color. I’m so scared of color in my own home but I absolutely love seeing people play with color so beautifully! I like that you kept the natural wood beams that I think make the unique artwork pop. What a beauty!

  • May 10, 2018


    What a happy, exuberant hallway!

    What a huge change! I love all the color and modern art. Mick definitely makes a statement 🙂

  • May 11, 2018

    I love all of your bold color choices. It is hard to pick one favorite…the tv surrounded by fun art on a gorgeous credenza, the shot with Gray’s picture, and the hall with the fun tropical wallpaper are all favorites. Great job!
