Week 5: One Room Challenge: Linking Participant



WEEK 5 ONE ROOM CHALLENGE : Linking Participant

OK we are down to the last week! 


 I am in the process of redecorating our masterbedroom at our "Foxwoods" House in Altanta. I am linking up with 83 other bloggers courtesy of Calling It Home!!  If you missed last week ... you can catch up here!!  

Last Week I was STRESSED to the max! My wallpaper just got hung. My Electrican wigged out on me and I had to fire him & get another one STAT to finish the job! My contractor was all up in my house making a LARGE mess! Grout powder and DUST every where I looked! SO glad it is over! Plus on top of all of this I had a Minted photo shoot at my house all day this past Monday and this past Friday was the grand gala opening of the ASO (2014 Decorators Show House and Gardens: Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Show House) our first time having a space and being a featured designer!  #thepressurewason.  Sunday I had a mild nervous breakdown.  In hind sight I might have had 5 mugs of coffee before breakfast! Thank the good Lord things have all come together for my room #oneroomchallenge. This week ALL my pieces are falling into place.  More stress this week! We just got our new Puppy Sammy Junior delivered! Plus my in laws were here with a house recently coming out of a master suite renovation!  I do not think my life could have had any more hoops to jump through to make it to this afternoon! 


Meet Sammy JUNIOR - our new pup!

 He is a snuggler and a Llewellin Setter! #HELOVESTOCHEWTHINGS-OHBOY!


So here is my journey with my #oneroom challenge! It has been so FUN!

Here are my original Inspiration Photos ( I called it Preppy Palm Beach) that I started out with:

Parker Kennedy Living One Room Challenge Week 4


One Room Challenge Linking Event, Round 2...Week 4

OK I am posting super late! I apologize but my work schedule with paying clients along with the (ASO) Atlanta Symphony Show House we just installed has been SUPER busy! Thank you guys for hanging with me! I posted a preview earlier today on my instagram! It is super easy with me on my phone (hence I can do a quick IG post between calls or meetings) I LOVE doing this and if it takes me till late Thursday night then I am doing it! I am so looking forward to seeing everyones rooms that I have been following!



 I am in the middle of redecorating our master bedroom suite here at our Atlanta house "Foxwoods".  I am linking up with 83 other bloggers courtesy of Calling it Home. Check out my last weeks progress from my last post! It has been a whirlwind of a week! LOTS of progress! Check put my newly hung wallpaper that just happened today! Crown goes in next!




Walls DONE TODAY!!! So glad this was stressing me out BIG time! I Love the way they turned out! I adore seagrass and the texture and the dimension it brings to a room! I must admit I do not live through construction well! I tend to be a neat freak! #allthismessisstressingmebigtime


Another big progress happened today! My Vintage MING Chairs arrived from Chairish! Now they are both off to the workroom for a facelift! Stay Tuned to see their new look soon! Here they are straight off the truck in my warehouse!



The chairs are getting new Thibaut Fabric and the frames are being lacquered ASAP!

I also picked up my pair of vintage  blanc de chine figures today. I had bought these at an estate sale back in the Fall. They were original just a pair of figures/statues but I wanted to convert them into lamps. I had my local lamp and shade company French mount these! Next the shades! I am thinking White paper pagoda style shades with a metallic gold interior - what do you guys think would be best? Check them out. LET ME KNOW!!


Also this week I have done my DIY project!! I wanted to have the entire bedroom to be tricked out in GOLD/BRASS accent tones! No Silver or No Chrome! I have a large collection of photo frames just all have different colors and finishes. I decided I love some so much I picked out my favorites and I started spraying them gold metallic! I am happy with the outcome! It is so EASY!  Check out my few photo frames I have done so far!

 Photo Frames : Before  Finishes


Mid Action Photo of the Spraying! Super Easy!


Final out come - 2 coats!

Now I have about 8 more frames to spray! I am wanting to do a collection of frames on my new vintage TV console! I hope you all liked my progress report! Enjoy your Friday tomorrow and good night! XO


Take care and until next week!

Remember GO BIG OR GO HOME!
