Well…it’s hard to believe that it’s week 6 of the One Room Challenge already…the big reveal day!  And despite my setbacks (my cabinet knobs and the area rug didn’t arrive until today…talk about cutting it close!), I was actually able to finish my room (well mostly finish…more on that later).

In case you forgot, this is what I started with.

My mood board looked like this.  You can find all of the details from the previous weeks here:  Week 1, Week 2, Week 3, Week 4, and Week 5.

I had a bunch of requirements…but most of them were around needing more storage and a bigger work area…

I finished my built-in cabinets and shelves (find the instructions for how to build them here)…they provide tons of storage as well as display space.  The base cabinet with the drawers on the right hand side is from the Martha Stewart Living Craft Storage collection.

The paint is Middleton Pink from Farrow and Ball…I love the way it looks different during the day than it does at night.

There’s a place to sit and look out the window (which the cats love!)  And it uses my inspiration fabric for the curtains and and bench seat.

Then there’s my new awesome desk* and an antique chair that both came from One King’s Lane.

Here’s the same chair with a faux fur* cushion that my mother sewed for me.

And a seating area with a pop of color…I love these velvet fuchsia chairs*, the spherical lamp* and the gold-spattered cowhide rug*.

Pink flowers on the desk

The gold mirror*, Andy Warhol print and faux peonies* add a little flair to the room.  As I’ve said before…I know a lot of people prefer live plants and flowers, but my green thumb seems to stop at the front door…so I’d rather have good looking fake flowers than real dead ones!

Panel mouldings

Chinese symbols give me some inspiration, and I love the blue and white foot bath (you can find a similar one HERE).

At the other end of the room, my work area has more storage and I was able to re-use my drafting table…lots of work area!  The work chair* and lamp* make the space functional and stylish at the same time.

I was able to update an old bathroom cabinet with black lacquer paint…it stores (and hides) all of my internet electronics perfectly!  You can see my post on that here.

And it all goes very well with my stairwell.

Overall, the room is bright, pretty and glam…my favorite kind of room!

The one thing that I was not able to complete?  The ceiling design…but it’s still on my list of things to do…so stay tuned to see how it turns out!
