Fall 2017 One Room Challenge: Week 4

Well folks, things are getting crazy around here!  It’s week 4 and we’re past the halfway point. HOWEVER, for the first time in One Room Challenge history, they are granting a one week extension.  We received an email from ORC creator Linda Weinstein explaining “never have there been so many natural disasters in so many states leading up to, and during the ORC. Between Texas, Florida and California, many participants have had to endure unusual circumstances and because of this, we will be supporting each other with a one week extension.”  My heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by any of these natural disasters. The featured designers big reveals will now take place on Wednesday, November 15th. If you’re a guest participant, you’ll be getting an extension as well! Did you know that there are over 220 guest participants?  Follow their challenges & see the big reveals on Thursday, November 16th.

The week long extension won’t exactly affect my project with Dwell with Dignity. We’ve actually already installed it! As soon as I returned from market, we loaded up & headed out to install this beautiful apartment home to help give a new beginning to a very deserving family. Due to the privacy/safety of the family and the charitable process for Dwell with Dignity, I can’t share photos of the family or much about them but I can share sneak peeks of the room until the big reveal 😉

So, for the next few weeks I’ll be teasing you with fabulous photos, progress and giving you the scoop of our amazing “village” of sponsors, vendors & volunteers it took to pull this off in record time.

Let’s dive into some of the details of transforming this home for this sweet family. The wall has been tented & the drapery panels went up in my Genesis fabric. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this!!! Thank you to Design Elements for donating the fabulous brass hardware!  And, OMG – how amazing does the fuchsia Nourison rug look?

Thank you to Paula Ross for taking over the task of tenting the wall!  We stapled the fabric to a furring strip to ensure little to no damage to the wall.

The Arianna Belle pillows arrived in the prettiest packaging with a hand written thank you note!  I told y’all she was fabulous!

I cannot get over how incredibly perfect these pillows are with the rug from Nourison!


Here’s another close up of the rug where you can see more of the blue & green accents.


Tune in next Wednesday for more photos & details from our installation. Make sure you check out the progress from the other featured designers below.

On Magazine Feature

I am so excited to have been chosen as one of a handful of Dallas designers to be featured in a spread in On Magazine.  They asked us to where to find our favorite designs & cool things to create our favorite rooms.

Here’s what I said:
My favorite designs can be found right in our showroom. We sell right off of the floor, so our vignettes are constantly evolving. With a large staff of talented designers, our showroom is a creative collaboration of a multitude of design styles showcased in the vignettes throughout the store. I love this bedroom vignette because of the fresh purple paired with the spunky tangerine. The bed makes quite a statement on its own. However, I’d have to say that my favorite thing here is the square white & orange bench ottomans that add a stylish yet functional “pop” at the end of the bed.”

Here’s a sneak peak at the featured spread for their July 2009 issue (they put me right at the front of the article :-).
