O.R.C. Week 4


Here we go again...

We are in week four of the One Room Challenge...

What makes it a challenge is that we only have 6 

weeks to redo a room...the master mind of this 

challenge is Linda from Calling it Home Blog.





I had the ottoman reupholstered, but its the only thing I got done this week!

You can see my new table in the background.....




This was the ottoman before...I should say..its my dogs ottoman!





This is my family room before...notice the shelve above the T.V.


I need to restyle it and I'm not sure what to do yet..

I've got to go shopping and buy some accessories.. 

The new sofa comes on Saturday..
Thank God! 

We are going crazy with out a sofa!


This is the area up close...

I just placed these items up here for now....
pretty bad..huh!

You can check out earlier posts here and here.

I only have two weeks left....
I hope it all gets done!

Thanks for stopping by!

White Pumkins




I was taking to a friend the other day and she had  mentioned that Christmas was only 10 weeks away.....Just the thought of it was so overwhelming...





Can you believe it....
We'll be buying Christmas trees soon and decorating the house for the holidays...





I thought about how easy it is to decorate for Fall..








I always buy white pumpkins and I love them with fresh flowers...they look great with any color too.




Have any of you started thinking about the holidays and buying Christmas presents yet? 
Thanks for stopping by..

O.R.C. Up-Date






I can't believe its already Thursday and we are going into our 3rd week participating in the One Room Challenge...






I got the little pillows back and I thought they came out so cute...






And the pillows for the sofa are done..

The one at the bottom is my old pillow...

I've been trying to find a fabric that has  true red with blue and white...

The reds that are being shown right now are more of a orange red or pink red...

I have a feeling its going to take awhile to find...
Patience I guess...

Not my strongest virtue!

These are the larger pillows for the sofa..

The ottoman is being recovered and hopefully will be done in a week and my sofa should be delivered Saturday...I hope!

I still need accessories, but all I saw was  Pumpkins and Christmas decorations when I went shopping...
Yikes!

Wish me luck!
Don't forget to check out the other bloggers participating here

P.S.  I just got an email from the sofa company...my sofa wont be delivered until the 24th..

SHOOT!

Patterns and textures

(Lilly Allen's Home)

 I've always been attracted to rooms with a lot of layering and  patterns...




(Jeffrey Bilhuber)


Patterns and layers give it character and interest....





Mark Sikes has a style I love ...Green and blues are one of my faves right now...



Even a neutral simple room can have a lot of pattern and textures to make it look interesting..




(Michael S Smith)

Love this bedroom!




(Coquita Tumbler)

Don't forget to check back for the One Room linking Challenge  ....my chair pillows are done and my sofa should be done and delivered on  Saturday...cross your fingers!
Thanks again for checking in!

The Six Week Challenge..


Oh my gosh....

its been busy and we are only half way through the week...
Thank God I'm not doing a gigantic redo....
For those of you who don't know, I'm following along with The One Room Challenge...ORC..I have 5 weeks left to complete the redo of my family room...









The chair pads are done and I love how they look!







I'm replacing my old island with this one....I found  it at an antique store...it has a marble top!
I fell in love with it!
The marble has a patina feel..in other words, its been used, but it has character and I love it!



This ottoman belongs to my dog, she sleeps on it...really! 

That same dog that has peed on my drapes...
You can see who rules my house!
The ottoman with a chair that I gave away a couple of years ago....when company comes over I have my hubby put it in the garage...I do have some blue and white pin striped fabric I could recover it with or I could look for a new fabric...
I know...
I only have 5 weeks left!
I know...get with the program..

Right!

This is what were sitting on now...
I moved these chairs into the family room from the living room....you saw the blue sofa in the first post, which we brought to my husbands studio to help sell it...

You can read about that here ...
I had bought a tan sofa and sold it to a client...so now I'm waiting for the new one to arrive...

I'm sure that was a little confusing! 



I will show you the up- dates next Thursday....
Thanks for stopping by!

A Beautiful Mess Home


My daughter and I went to check out the new location of the The Beautiful Mess Home in Agoura, Calif.






Kimberley Fraser, the stores owner has done a fantastic job at styling the store...it has a hip feel and she has many items from up and coming artists..you can check out the web-site here.






Love this table..








Old domino's in a wooden bowl..so simple and yet a great look...







Isn't this bag fantastic?








She had an old cot with great pillows facing this sofa...


















Hope you enjoyed the tour of The Beautiful Mess Home!

One Room Challenge



OK..the pressure is on...
I'm tagging along with ORC, The One Room Challenge...
Which you can check out here...

I started to redo my family room months ago, but I had to put it on hold while I was taking  care of my parents. 

I have 6 weeks to finish this project and I will be posting an up-date every Thursday!



I added the wood details and painted the room at least 3 years ago. 
 I just bought a new sofa for this room and I will show it to you later on.





The kitchen and family room is one big room...and right now its too country!  

The table is being replaced with a fantastic vintage bamboo table I found at an Estate Sale...the chair is below.





The island will be replaced too.







This fabric, and the ones below, will be used for the pillows on the sofa and chair pads are for the vintage table..






































This is a preview of what my table looks like.....

I'm in love with it!Well, wish me luck!

Sneak Peak...before and after




Do you remember this home I was working on? 
I know...
I'm not very good at showing you images of the room after its done...so I thought I would show you a small glimpse of it before its staged for pictures..
You can check it out the post here and here






This is a picture of the room before we painted and
 bought this pretty rug..






We had the room painted a soft light blue...






I love this antique clock we found at Eloquence...






The coffee table came out perfect..it has a marble top and it was custom made.







This is the fabric we used for drapery,
it has a pale blue and cream stripe in it. 

Hopefully I will have professional pictures done soon...

I'm going to follow along with Linda at Calling it Home and participate in the...
 The One room challenge... 
Part of the challenge is having the room done in 6 weeks....
I'm going to redo my family room and kitchen...
