Some of my Favorite ORC Rooms

Some of my Favorite ORC Rooms

There was so much good stuff that came out of this round of the One Room Challenge, and I’m going to share a few of my faves today. I’ll stick with my top three of the twenty featured designers. I am head over heels for Waiting On Martha’s new team office – I love industrial spaces anyway, and this one is so wonderfully calm, warm and refined – such a lovely juxtaposition… Making It Lovely’s bedroom/den space is just dreamy. And again with… View Post

Mood Board: A Mid-Century Office

Mood Board: A Mid-Century Office

I just recently discovered The HighBoy, which is a curated marketplace for antiques and fine art. There is so much good stuff on the site. I picked out a few pieces to put together an office space. I went mainly mid-century for this design, but the range is huge.  1.

It’s long and narrow – similar to our… View Post

We’re still unpacking, so this is about as festive as you can expect from me this year…a combined office and guest room. We’ve never had a dedicated room for either, so I’d be happy with a multipurpose space like this, especially over the holidays. As is, our desk is shoved in a corner of the living room and our poor guests are stuck sharing with the kids. Lucky they love us!

As Far As I Got With Our Last Loft Living Room

I never finished our old living room off the way I wanted to, but I did rather like the direction it was going in. When we moved in, there was a rather dominant red wall, complete with huge mismatched patches where the landlord had tried to cover damage left over from the previous tenants. Luckily, we got the go-ahead to paint neutral stripes. I was seriously missing the stripes we had in our previous master bedroom, so it was a… View Post
