At long last, it’s reveal day! My first time participating in the ORC was a great experience. Not only is the community so inspiring and encouraging, it really motivated me to give this long-neglected room the makeover it needed. Now, instead of being a leftover room, our family room is one that the kids can proudly enjoy with their friends and we can gather together as a family.
So, without further ado, the final reveal! Click here for a quick reminder of how this room looked before.
As you can tell, I love baskets (can you spot them all?). Baskets are practical and great for adding texture to a space. I made a few tweaks from the original plan, like making my own pillows using a variety of my favorites like Japanese indigo, African mudcloth, and ikat patterns.
In place of the single coffee table I had originally selected, I went with two smaller tables. This allows more floor space and flexibility, since the tables can be easily moved around. The tripod legs on the tables mimic those of the floor lamp (also changed). Flexibility is a must in design!
After repainting this chest glossy black, I paired it with a brass mirror to catch some of the light from the opposite (and only) window. With the chest placed next to our classic leather club chair, this area is now a purposeful resting spot, complete with a basket full of design magazines.
Thank you for following along with me on this six week journey. It was such a great experience, I’m going to have to find a new room for the next ORC!
