One Room Challenge Fall 2017 | The Kitchen

Lately I’ve been motivated to get back to blogging, but when you’ve been out of the game for a year, it’s not always easy to jump back in.

My last posts were all from the One Room Challenge last Fall, when we were preparing for baby P. Well if you follow me on any social media at all, you know that not only is Eleanor here, but a whole lot has changed!! More to come on all that later, but for now, I liked the symmetry of picking up the blog where we left off with the ORC. This time with the kitchen!

I have waffled so much on doing the ORC this time…and obviously I’m late to the game (it started bright and early Wednesday and Thursday), but we are hitting the ground running. We are hoping for maximum visual impact with minimal changes.

These pictures are of our kitchen as it sits now. I may have done a quick clean up, but no major cleaning or organizing because it helps to show how dysfunctional this room has become for us.

We spend so much time here, especially being that I’m home with E most of the time, we really spend a lot of that time cooking or eating IN the kitchen. So my main objective is to make this space really work for our family right now…but also make it look damn good too, so I’m happy and wanting to spend my time here.

What’s on the list for an upgrade?:

  • Paint the walls (I am so over the hot pink accent stripes!!)
  • Paint the cabinets (I’ve never liked this light wood here.)
  • Paint the molding and details (The molding desperately needs some TLC and although I would love to replace it, it’s not likely with baby P in the picture.)
  • Declutter and organize overall
  • Add a main wall shelf
  • (Finally) build my custom table (that I designed almost 2 years ago…)
  • Add some drawer storage (We don’t have a single drawer in our kitchen. Not one.)
  • Possibly swap out the cabinet hardware
  • Find seating

So there you have it. We’re back in the game! Leave a comment and let me know what you think!! Next week I’ll be sharing my inspiration for the new look of the space and possibly a little progress.

ORC+Guest+Participants+Graphic

Oh and if you’re reading this post like, “ORC, what’s that?!” It’s a HUMONGOUS decor blogger link up party created and hosted by Linda from Calling It Home. Every Wednesday for 6 weeks the featured bloggers share a room they are transforming from start to finish; and every Thursday, the participating guest bloggers around the world follow suit in their own room! So it’s one room, 6 weeks and more than 100 bloggers. It is quite the decor party, and reveal week is filled with insane spaces and reveals that will have you turning all heart-eyed emoji at them. It is seriously an inspiring design challenge and I hope you follow along with me and at least a few of the other bloggers that are out there!

Here’s a look at all of our previous one room challenges (living room and bedroom). This blog link party has really forced us to make this condo really feel like us. Though these spaces continue to evolve as our family grows here, I love how the ORC has forced us to ‘finish’ the rooms and make this home ours!

I Guess I Needed a Break

After the whirlwind that is the one room challenge, I guess I was a little burnt out and I had a lot to catch up on with my clients as well, not to mention the adjustments we’ve been making with P’s new schedule.

Weekend Snuggles 1

Speaking of, he is on day shifts now, which is great because we get our evenings together which we haven’t had in years… like years. so it’s nice to actually have some face time with the hubs. But he is now working only in the office (never at home, which I actually really love… just that he’s not in the living room with a constant stream of sports and his laptop and papers, etc., it’s kinda nice) and he is working Thursdays through Mondays. So while my days out of the office are Sundays and Tuesdays, and Tuesdays I’m often juggling client details, materials sourcing, drawings and blogging. So to say the least it has been an adjustment.

I’m still not willing to give up Sunday to a day of really working even though sometimes I do a lot of the behind the scenes legwork, I don’t want to do it all the time… you need down time too people, and it is important to block that out. But we are trying to balance out my schedule on Tuesdays to be able to enjoy more time together as well. So we will see how it all works out.

For now, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my Sundays home alone with just me and Brantley Bub! I’ve been catching up on my DVR’d shows, reading, cleaning and even knitting! Yup, I just cast on for one of my dear friends baby blankets (she is due June 22nd, so wish me luck!). Of course, I’ve been working on floor plans and brainstorming blog stuff too, but it’s nice to just be in the house, or around the neighborhood soaking it all in.

Weekend Walk

My favorite new tradition that we have started is walking from home to the train station to go meet P after work on Sunday evenings… it’s so nice to then walk home together. As the weather gets better, I’m planning on definitely keeping this tradition up! It’s a nice long walk too so we all sleep well, and B is good to go for his day at home Monday!

What have you been up to lately? Doing anything fun with your down time?

Living Room Revealed | ORC Week 6

Stick a fork in me, I’m done! Last week I didn’t know if we were going to pull it off. I even shared about the delay of our window treatments… but ya know what, we did it! Even without the window treatments, in my opinion, the living room looks pretty damn good.

So, if you are new around here, we’ve been participating for the last 6 Thursdays in the One Room Challenge, which is a design challenge graciously hosted by Linda at Calling it Home, where 20 host design bloggers and countless guest bloggers transform one room in 6 weeks and share all the plans and progress along the way. It is intense to say the least, but worth every stress-filled moment once you make it to the end.

Here are a few before pics to remind you where we started:

We transformed our living room with the miracles of paint, lighting and trim. It sounded easy enough when we started, and I can’t tell you how many times I was filled with excitement or tears throughout this process, but I am thrilled with where the living room is now. (I’ll be even happier next week when the Roman shades are up, but you can come back next week to see how those fit in.)

Without further ado, the full reveal:

What do you think? I love hearing your feedback, so please comment below! It was a grueling process for sure, and the pictures really don’t do the space justice, but it is a bigger change that it looks, and we couldn’t be happier!

I know Brantley is happy to not have to hide in the bedroom while the living room is filled with noise and chaos, and I know P and I are thrilled the our living room furniture isn’t crammed into our bedroom anymore.

The little things that we did, and the sheer work and effort we put into getting this room done, are huge! This living room project has made us love our little corner of the world that much more. And I don’t know about any of the other participants, but I’m going to have the best sleep of my life tonight!

My step-dad (Handy Dad as my mom and I refer to him) was an insane resource for us during this process. I wish he lived closer, but we talked on the phone almost daily with questions, tips, etc., throughout the challenge, and I really could not have done it without him and his advice and support. The local contractor and friend I do a ton of work with, Greg, was a huge resource for this project as well. He connected us with the floor refinishers, the lighting guys, a carpenter to help with the weird molding issues that we were unable to deal with on our own, the list goes on. My neighbor A, who came in with her muscle, not only kept me company while I worked on the room, but she was willing to get covered in paint to help me keep my sanity and my timeframe. And of course to Linda at Calling it Home, for not only hosting this great challenge, but for cheering us on through the weekly blog posts and on social media updates to keep us going especially when it was tough!

I’m so appreciative of all the advice and support from all corners… our tiny home has never looked so good!

And if you think our space looks good at all, wait until you see the host designers revealed spaces. OMG, if you haven’t seen them yet, hop over here and prepare to be wowed. Once you recover from that, don’t forget to get back to the Calling It Home guest participant link up where other guest participants are sharing their reveal today too! There are some really incredible transformations floating around on the web today!!

Check back next week (or follow on any of the linked social spots below) to see the room truly completed with window treatments, and then a follow up post on the budget for this space, which I think it’s always helpful to see a real perspective of how the numbers break down. Thanks so much for following along, I hope to see you around the blog again soon!

Decor Trend Alert | Layered Rugs

Layering rugs is a trend I’ve been seeing a lot of lately and when it’s done right, it can be stunning. I’ve been known to have actually used an area rug on a space with wall to wall carpeting to help delineate the use of a certain area, but what I’m talking about is more of a stacked effect with area rugs.

I wanted to explore the idea together and share some of the best examples i could find on the web, share why they work and then see what you think!

1. This layered set balances out the bold contrast between the walls and sova, while adding in ample pattern to this home office designed by Lisa Borgnes Giramonti.

2. Talk about pattern play. This is another great example of adding a pop of pattern into an otherwise solid space. It works well because the natural base layer rug is woven in a similar diamond pattern as the top colorful rug. Contemporary living room by Jen Talbot Design.

3. Another great example of adding in a secondary rug with pattern. This gorgeous light bright bedroom feels extra cozy with the double rugs under foot. This sunlit stunner of a space was designed by Ryan Street and Associates.

4. Layering Rugs is a great way to add in a splash of color to a space as well. This boho living room, designed by Weisshouse, isn’t lacking in bold color, but the textured base rug layered with the navy top rug creates a cushiony anchor in this living room space.

5. Speaking of color, this layered rug situation really pulls this space together. The otherwise neutral space has such great lines and details, but the bold top rug ties everything together like the cherry on top of a sundae. Transitional living room designed by Janof Architecture.

6. Talk about adding some fun color to a room, this room makes me feel like a cozy warm summer day complete with Kohrs Bro’s Vanilla-Orange Swirl Frozen Custard goodness. (Did I go too far there??) I love how this room is so playful and so put together, an excellent example of how to perfectly layer rugs. Brilliant colorful living room design by CU-Interiors, bravo!

7. This rug stack starts with the pattern and color at the base and tops it with plush sheepskin goodness. You can’t get much more inviting than that. Fabulous guest room design by Heide Hendricks.

8. Another stunning stack of pattern/color and soft sheepskin goodness in this nursery designed by Natalie Myers. If you are starting to really like this trend but you aren’t sure if you can pull it off, go pick up a sheepskin style rug from Ikea and toss it down next to your bed (or any bed in your house) on top of the other more patterned or colorful rug that already exists there, and voila, you are a rug layering master.

9. If sheepskin isn’t your thing but you are liking this idea, this room illustrates how you can add in a cowhide rug layer to complete your look. The neutral stack of rugs illustrated here perfectly balance out the color and texture in the tufted velvet sofa and the colorfully layered bookshelves in this living room designed by Crowell + Co Interiors.

10. Last but certainly not least, this room is a textured frenzy of eye candy. This room defines the perfect stacked texture. The natural jute texture to start, stacked with the cowhide, and the layered with cozy seating complete with sheepskin stools… what more could you want in your living room? Coziest living room ever designed by Sally Wheat Interiors.

Is this a trend you’ve seen yet?? If not, you can thank me later…either for introducing you to the greatest decor miracle since paint or for saving you from having to experiment with this yourself only to discover you really hate it.

If you are now thinking that rugs on rugs on rugs is your new thing, here are some tips to take away here; Start with either a textured neutral base or a bold patterned base and layer with the opposite, add an over-dyed rug on top of a neutral jute or sisal to make your space pop; play with animal hides… a layer of cowhide or sheepskin feels luxe and adds so much texture and warmth. Can’t wait to hear what you think about this fun decor trend!

Reveal | Master Bathroom That Wows

I have been busy with work and training and projects running their course, we hosted Easter, which I really want to share more about at some point, but for now I really just want to share with you this finished bathroom!

AT2_4409

This is the project that the homeowners main request was to open the doors and feel “wow-factor.” I shared the progress report over a year ago and it just took a long time to get schedules lined up for photography.

I don’t know about you, but I definitely think that mission was accomplished!

What do you think? Are these photos not the most beautiful thing? (Thanks Lindsay Photography!) They really show off all of the details in the space!

Weekend Design Love

This week I have spent a fair amount of time catching up on some of my favorite blogs. I love reading along with the blogosphere, but I find it one of the things that is so quickly removed from my list that it doesn’t happen as often as it should… I would love to work on changing that, and I think this week I made a good effort in starting.

Here are some things I’ve seen over the last few days that are worth sharing from the design blogs I follow:

Area Rugs and crafting are two of my favorite things. If they are on your list too, this post, on Apartment 34, is a must read and if you don’t want to read it, the pictures are pretty gorgeous to scroll through too.

First of all, if you don’t follow Justina Blakeney and her blog The Jungalow, what are you waiting for. She is full of awesome projects and so much creativity, I always love seeing what she comes up with. Her hunt for the perfect reclaimed french doors in this post was no different. It’s such a good look at the hunt for reclaiming things and how the process works. The final result is beautiful!

Apartment Therapy’s Spring Exteriors

The weather has been warming up over here and giving us a real taste of the Spring weather to come, so Apartment Therapy’s roundup of sunny outdoor spaces has me dreaming of sun-soaked weekends. (If only we had outdoor space in our condo…)

What have you seen on the web lately that is worth sharing? I love reading blogs and finding good home and lifestyle blogs. I also read a lot of random other blog genres…so feel free to leave me a link to your favorites (or your own) in the comments and I’ll go check them out!

This weekend, we are busy all day Saturday, capping the night off with dinner with a friend and then Sunday, my goal is to not get in the car. I would be happy just checking off the to-do list, taking a long walk with B and spending some time relaxing on the couch with P. What do your weekend plans look like?

Layering Our Bedding for Fall

When it starts to get a bit cooler at night, we call that good sleeping weather: weather in which you can open the windows, maybe add another layer to your bedding and really cozy in and get a good night’s sleep. I wanted to share with you how we transition our bed for fall.

Fall Bedding with White Sheets Quilted Layers and Neutrals

I change the sheets and the shams, keeping a good balance between the colors and textures by adding the quilted euro shams and a thin quilted layer, a favorite made by my mom. It is reversible and the sunflower side is perfect for the fall, not to mention that the blues and greens work perfectly in our bedroom color scheme. I keep the plush down comforter with the crisp white and greige cover folded at the end of the beds for when the nights get a bit too chilly and you need to pull up another layer to keep cozy.

This bed is so cozy and inviting that I never want to leave it in the morning to go to work!! How do you transition your linens in the fall? Do you add more cozy and quilted layers like we do, or maybe switch up the color of your sheets or duvet cover? I always love to see and hear what others are doing to keep cozy as the seasons change and the temps begin to drop.

Monday Wishes

I am blogging today from my family’s home north of Seattle, and actually by the time this posts, we will be on our way to Montana to visit with my Grammy.

IMG_2967With that said, I thought this quote was the perfect reflection on vacationing and all the other things we dream about. We often spend time dreaming about the things we want to do with our lives; dreaming of far away places that we might seem too far out of reach; dreaming of projects that would make our house our dream home; dreaming about the perfect job.

Gloria Steinam is pointing out to us that really the dream is the first part of the plan. If we don’t start with the dream, we can’t create our reality. We need to dream about things that we want, things that seem so far out of reach that we long for them and then we need to make it our mission to find a way to achieve them.

What are you currently dreaming of?

White Open Kitchen Reveal

I am currently in the midst of a kitchen that is wrapping up, and I was going to share some details of that space today, when I realized, I never shared the last kitchen with you here! It’s so beautiful, I can’t believe it didn’t get its time to shine! (Click on the images to expand view.)

White Open Kitchen

When I first walked into this space, there was a wall facing the front door, concealing the kitchen space from the living space. The plan was to open it up and achieve a better functioning kitchen space with ample storage and better sight lines through the main space.

And that is exactly what we did.

WOK1WOK5WOKI2WOK3WOK4WOK6WOK8 WOK7WOK9 WOK10

For a look at where this project started, hop over to their work-in-progress post here, and to see more images of this kitchen, hop over to our Houzz project page for this space here.

Wall of Mirrors

I know I owe you all an update on what has been happening as we “Address the Bedroom” but while I am working on that, I can’t help but continue to think about other little updates and projects that I will be doing next.

Mirror Wall-1

As everything has been ordered and or planned out for the bedroom, we are just waiting for the details to come together. While we wait, let’s talk about our entryway.

We have this wall right across from our front door, it is the first thing you see when you walk into our condo, and it has a light switch dead in the center of the wall. Who installs a switch in the middle of a wall?? I have looked into moving it, but due to the fact that we live in a terribly old home home filled with years of character, the switch is not going anywhere unless the wall comes down.

So, we have to work around it. The space from molding to molding on the wall is 32″ and originally I bought a 28″ D round mirror for that space, as I really like the idea of a mirror in the entry, but due to the aforementioned light switch, the mirror found a home elsewhere.

That said, I am thinking of doing a wall of smaller mirrors. I’m not sure how it would feel being the first thing in the front door, and I haven’t pitched it to P yet, but I wanted to source out some inspo for the concept and get a few more opinions on it.

So what do you think? Are you a fan of a wall of mirrors? Would you do it in your own home somewhere?
