ONE ROOM CHALLENGE- REVEAL

One Room Challenge- Reveal

OK, I have to say...I am kind of sad the One Room Challenge is over:-(  Linda from the wonderful Calling it Home blog, has made me feel like part of the One Room Challenge Family.  To catch everyone up, Linda has gotten together 20 bloggers (some are designers, others DIY'ers and some interior design bloggers) for a 6 week challenge to re-do transform a room.  Not only have I- and the 19 others- transformed some not-so-beautiful spaces, but we have all gotten to know each other a little bit better, week by week.  Every Wednesday I wake up excited to click on all of the links and see how the others are doing.  I regaled in the stories of the good and the bad that comes with a transformation.  Today, I can't wait to see if everyone finished!!

So without further ado....


BEFORE

I call it boho chic...








AFTER:

I call this whimsical, teenage, fun with a sophisticated twist.

I wish my bed was as beautiful as this.  The lovely shape, the fuchsia linen, the permanent skirt, the hidden trundle- ahh.  I also adore the Osborne and Little wallpaper with the sophisticated flowers and hot pink stems.  I may break in and steal the Oomph demi lune side tables.  I am so glad I chose the white table so it complemented the room, not draw unnecessary attention. 
The little bit of fuzz in the area rug and the long Flokati pillow give the room some extra fun.  I have been told that it is very "awesome" to wake up and wiggle your toes in the Flokati rug.  I think my toes would like to wiggle in that instead of landing on my hardwood floors:-)  Almost forgot, I love my client's framed art.  She is very talented.


The little ghost chair has made a second area to sit which is perfect for "the little sister!"  I hear that the little sister creeps into the room and sits at the table to draw while the "client" is doing her homework.

My client's favorite thing is the acrylic egg chair.  I think I know why.  Every time I see it, I want to say, "Weeeeeeee!"  Have you ever seen the little piggy on the commercial that does that?  I laugh every time!  Personally, I heart Kerry Steele's art.  I don't know if she has any left for sale because so many One Room Challenge rooms feature her art!!!


So cute!



Then there is her new desk area.  The bulletin board with the silver frame and fuchsia letter, the white wheelie chair and...


Tons of room for HER stuff!!












Thank you all for being a part of my journey!!  I had so much fun and I hope I get asked to do it again- hint, hint!!!  Please go visit my friends on their blogs below.  Again, special thanks to Linda from Calling It Home as well as Jennifer from My Pink Pagoda! Jennifer designed this banner below.  She is a talented artist!!



I will see you very soon!!

xoxo,

  5. Kathleen, this is so fun. I wish I had a space like this, and a swing when I was that age. Actually, I would love one now, but I would have to share it with my kids. I really like how you combined the large scale wallpaper with the art and pillows. FUN!

  7. I have teens and truly appreciate how you pulled together a space that is a bit more mature but still fun. This room will take this girl through college! The beautiful bed and hanging chair and overall feel remind me of a Jonathan Adler hotel we stayed at in Palm Springs. Fabulous job!
