One Room Challenge, Week 4

This is week four of the One Room Challenge where I am transforming my mudroom into a functionally pretty space. You can start at the beginning, here. I say it all the time....week four is the toughest. It is the moment of truth for being realistic with what can actually get accomplished over the next two remaining weeks. 


I am feeling slightly optimistic with my mudroom, although UPS is going to play a major role in the ultimate outcome...so I won't be popping the champagne cork just yet, as Beth might say. 

This week was all about coordinating the art for my space. Minted has generously provided me with a limited edition art print. My wall space is small, and I have additional pieces that I needed to consider when shopping the Minted site. Here are some of my favorites.

Lights on the Lake / Peonies in Vase / Peach Blossoms / Scribbles in Blue

All of the prints have a framing option so it's fun to click on the various colors to see how the frame changes the feel of the piece. In this room, I am sticking to black frames. In addition, some prints come in several colors.

Taking all of my needs into consideration, I ended up with a square print, framed in black, that would compliment all of the other elements in the room. 



I have tall ceiling envy in an eight foot high ceiling space. One of the ways I like to create the feeling of taller ceilings is by hanging the art above my wall treatment. 


I can't wait to see what Jennifer has created for these frames. Now let's go see how the rest of the group is doing.

One Room Challenge Linking Event, Round 2...Week 3

Welcome back to the third week of the One Room Challenge Linking Event. I know so many of you have been working at a crazy pace. The Instagram #Oneroomchallenge pictures are filled with impressive ideas and fun sneak peaks. So let's get to it....show us all what you have accomplished this week in your space. 


Please remember to put a link back to this post so that everyone can gain encouragement and recognition with their rooms.


Three more weeks to go....hang in there, you can do this!


 

One Room Challenge, Week 3

Well here we are already, at week three of the One Room Challenge. If you are visiting for the first time, I am transforming my mudroom into a pretty and functional space. You can start at the beginning, here


This week flew by. The progress on my wall treatment is slow and steady. Vinney and his crew are here painting away. Since outdoor painting season has begun, I won't let him leave until he has painted a few other rooms for me, too. 

Finding the perfect pillow(s) for my bench was becoming an impossible task....definitely a version of the Three Bears...too small, too big....and noting was just right.

I decided to go custom with a Dash & Albert rug fabricated into a pillow. I am working with my favorite pillow designer and home stager, Leslie. You may remember that Leslie made the beautiful pillows in my family room. I love working with her because she is always up for whatever crazy ideas that come to mind. 

I am using one of these rugs.


I also wanted a ceramic garden stool in my mudroom. Lamps Plus has an amazing selection and was kind enough to provide me with one. I think this was the toughest decision, to date. I could not believe the selection. Here are some of my favorites that are available.

Do you have a favorite? The one I picked is even more beautiful in person. 

That's it for this week, now let's go see what the other's accomplished. I saw a slab of marble and a few other goodies on Instagram #OneRoomChallenge.

And I'll see you back here tomorrow for the Linking Event
