ORC Reveal | Eclectic Living Room

ORC Reveal | Eclectic Living Room

It’s One Room Challenge reveal day. Over the last eight weeks, I’ve been working to make the living room in our Edwardian house brighter, happier, and more functional. I’m calling the overall vibe “Global Eclectic.” The house is rented and the budget was tight, so it’s not the most dramatic makeover. And Covid sprang a few shipping delays on me, so it’s not 100% finished. But it’s close enough to share. Learn more about Emmerson & Fifteenth’s interior design services here.… View Post

ORC Week 6 | Living Room Shelf Styling

I’m six weeks into the One Room Challenge, doing up the living room in our rented house in London. This week I’m talking about the shelfie situation, and hanging the monster TV over the fireplace. The goal for this room was to make it lighter, brighter, happier and more livable, and it’s on the way. I have a tight budget, and am limited in design choices because it’s a rental property. As a result, it’s not the most dramatic design… View Post

Week One of the One Room Challenge is done, and I’ve made solid progress on the living room makeover in my rented Edwardian home in East Sheen, London. Here’s a refresher on the interior design mood board. I linked all sources in last week’s One Room Challenge post, and showed you the living room floor plan and before pictures.

It’s time for another One Room Challenge makeover. This time around, I’m redesigning the living room in our Edwardian home in Southwest London.

This time round, we get an extra couple of weeks, because of the Corona situation. So much amazing interior design inspiration comes out of this event, and I’ve loved swooning over… View Post

Design Finds | Love Your Home

I bought a Chesterfield sofa bed from Love Your Home last summer, and I still love it in our living room. So much so that I recommended another one of their Chesterfields – the Charlotte – to a recent interior design client. Love Your Home is now my go-to for high quality seating for clients. They do sofas – and chairs, and chaise longues – very well. Sofas & Other Upholstered Seating So pretty. They have a huge range of fabrics,… View Post
