One Room Challenge: Week Two

It's Thursday!  That means we're already sharing progress on the One Room Challenge.
In case you missed last week, this lovely high pressure bash has you redecorating one room in six weeks.
It's a bit nerve wracking, sure, but I also think it's kind of genius!  Last week, after the post I was actually featured over at The Decorista!!!  Whaaaaat?!  So, now the pressure is really on!  This super fab link up is hosted by Linda over at Calling It Home.  I've never seen so much inspiration in one link up party!!!

Last week I shared my room and my plan and here's what's happened so far.

You remember one of the first things I wanted to tackle was our buffet.

It was a dark eggplant.



And now...

Hint....



It's white!!!  Lovely and white.  I feel like it brightened up the whole room!

There are a lot of shadows in this room, and for the life of me I can't get it to photograph properly, but it is so beautiful!!!





I played around with it a bit, just for fun, and I think it's going to be lovely to entertain with this piece!





I purchased this little Blanc de Chine lady at a resale shop this week. 
 I think she's going to feel right at home in this room!

I took the lighting options out of our storage space to get a look at it again.
I think this is the one we'll go with.


It's a six arm, which is what we have in there now, so the overhead lighting will be comparable to what we have now.  I'm afraid we won't get as much light with the pendant drum shade.  Plus, it was FREE!  You know, you just can't beat free!

I hung the chinoiserie panels on the wall and decided two things...



First, I LOVE the way they look in this room, they make the room feel bigger somehow!  Second, I do not love the way they look on the existing gray wall.  They just don't stand out enough.  I'm thinking I may need to make this an accent wall.  I'm also feeling like the arm chairs will be an accent color.

What colors, you ask?  That's a good question, I wish I knew the answer to that one!  
Which brings me to my next dilemma...

Here comes the hard part...the fabric and color choices for the room.  I keep waffling.  I really need to decide on a direction or I won't get any of it done!  HELP!!!

Here's a reminder of my fabric options along with the accent wall color, the other three walls will most likely be painted white.




This is why I'm waffling so badly...I love them both!  I asked Mr. Goodwill Glam if he had an opinion...he did not.  Most of my home is black and white with pops of color and since these both incorporate a lot of black and white, either will work.  The first option would tie back to the new pink sofa nicely.


I would really love some feedback from you all!  I've purchased the fabric for both options, just haven't been able to decide.  I feel like we're off to a good start with the white campaign dresser and deciding on the chandelier but I've got work to do!  During the next week, I want to begin painting and integrating the fabric choices into the room.

I can't wait to hear your thoughts!

XO,

  4. Much as I like the Kelly green it is hard to see the interplay with the LR... if that works well then go for it! Otherwise go with the 2nd plan!

  5. Hmmm, I like both but I think the first looks more like you. But, either would be beautiful! Love the new look on your buffet!

  9. I am absolutely in LOVE with everything you have done thus far!! What a score with the Blanc de Chine... I have recently started a collection as well! :) Regarding the two options, I am definitely leaning towards option one... That pink sofa is to DIE for, and I adore the bright and cheerful color combination!! So exciting!!

  10. Hard to decide both options very, very nice; leaning towards #1! Your white buffet and chandelier look great!

  11. Ugh, decisions. I really love both options. I'm no help. What you've got going on so far is amazing.

  12. Kind of leaning option 1 - I love the more vibrant color palette!!

  13. love the vibrant palette...and that campaign dresser looks so good in white! kudos to you, dana

  14. Personally, I like the first option (but maybe also because it's more springy). It just seems a bit more unexpected and refreshing. Can't wait to see which one you choose!

  15. Hi Krista, I love love the white campaign chest! I think both options are great! I personally love the Kelly green walls and the freshness of the first option! Great eye! I can't wait to start following you! Good luck with the room ! Lance @ Parker Kennedy

  16. I am kinda loving that pink!! Don't you think a vibrant pink would make those panels sing and the chair dance? The white buffet looks AMAZING--can't imagine how long that took. Love your style, Krista. Can't wait to keep following your progress.

  17. Oh my, two gorgeous plans. No wrong answer there! I love what you're doing.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Both very nice, though I am leaning toward option 1. Love that green!

    ReplyDelete
  19. My vote is for option one. But I am girl who like a little more color!!! Can't wait to see what you decide.

  20. Both options are awesome! I think #1 is my favorite! I can't wait to see the big reveal!

  21. I am outnumbered! I think the second option is timeless and will be appreciated longer than all the bright colors. Accent walls are kinda passé, why not make the whole room taupe? The fabric, chairs and sofa will really pop without being overwhelming. JT in TX

  22. The green option is more home and less hotel. It is warm and friendly. I'd go option one!
