Welcome back to week 8 of the One Room Challenge series. If you missed week 7 of the Home Office design, you can find it here.


As the project comes to a close, I wanted to revisit the wishes my client had for her new office:

  • 14 foot bookcases that made a dramatic statement

  • Library ladder

  • Moody paint color to really set the vibe for her office

  • Beautiful furniture to add sophistication

I cannot believe we are at the final reveal!!!! Here is the office space in all of its glory.

Ta-da!!!!


This has been such an incredible and challenging  experience! I have thoroughly enjoyed documenting and blogging the design process for my client's office. I absolutely loved hearing all of the feedback and love from the extremely talented designers and followers during this ORC series.


For the final week of this project, it was all about the finishing touches! We focused on:

  • Finishing all paint touch ups

  • Installing drapery and drapery hardware

  • Laying the new rug pad and rug

  • Delivering and installing furniture

  • Photographing the finished room

Before and After Pictures (aka my favorite part)



It is so crazy to see these two photos side by side. It’s such an unbelievable transformation! We were able to take this empty space and turn it into a stunning, sophisticated and swoon-worthy office.


My client trusted my vision of completely color drenching the room, including these gorgeous silk draperies. The curves on the desk, chairs, side table and cabinet hardware helped soften the square lines of the room.



This is a “just pinch me” moment! I am so blessed to be able to have a career that allows me to be creative and productive. While there are often setbacks in the design and construction industry, I try to look at them as challenges to overcome and relish finding creative solutions in the moment.


At the end of the day, the biggest accomplishment I take from each project is the smile on my client's faces when their dream design is completed. My clients, who often times become my friends, put their trust in me to be creative - and that means the absolute world to me.

Thank you so much for following along with me on my blogging journey!

Welcome back to week 7 of the One Room Challenge series. If you missed week 6 of the Home Office design, you can find it here.

A quick recap from last week. We finally revealed the painted cabinets! Thank you so much for all of the wonderful comments on our paint selection. It makes me so happy that all of you, and especially my client, love how the paint turned out.


We are one week out from the final reveal and I am cannot wait share it with you! I will be 100% honest. This series has shown me how terrible I am at social media and documenting all of the progress along the way. It seems like I am always racing from one project to another, taking care of my kids or juggling responsibilities at home. I never seem to take enough pictures or the right pictures of the projects throughout the process.

I am completely overwhelmed this week trying to wrap up a kitchen remodel, designing a new powder bathroom, construction meetings on a whole house remodel and an art installation. I have left this blog post for the very last minute. So please forgive me if this post is a little shorter than it has been.


The custom chairs I orginally sourced, (pictured on the left) ended up being a little out of the overall budget. After some clever sourcing, I believe I said something like this to my client... "How much do you trust me?" I promise, I can make these vintage chairs, (pictured in the middle), look FABULOUS. I used the same fabric that we were going to use with the custom chairs and they indeed came out fabulous. I love when I can repurpose old furniture. It brings in a piece of history that we can make our own…and they are so comfortable.




I was finally able to"get my hands dirty" and help my crew on this project. I am always designing, never doing the heavy lifting - not that they would let me - but this time, I finally got my chance to help with the library ladder. I love building and using tools and also love how surpised my crew always seems to be that I can actually do things. The ladder arrived in a lot of pieces, but was surprisingly easy to put together.






The ladder is my client's niece's favorite thing in the room! She is adorable, just like her aunt.



A huge shoutout to my crew. I can design all day long, but they are the ones that bring my visions to life!!!




Stay tuned next week for the final reaveal!!

Welcome back to week 6 of the One Room Challenge series. If you missed week 5 of the Home Office design, you can find it here.

A quick recap from last week: we began to prep and prime the cabinets and my client chose Sherwin WIlliams Dark Night for her paint color.







I cannot tell you how happy and grateful I am that we are finally laying color on these cabinets. Even though this has been a relatively quick project with lots of visible progress, when the paint leaves the can, we know that we are about to cross the finish line!

We defintely hit a few bumps in the road with the painting. One of the biggest issues was the dust and paint particles that were flowing throughout the rest of the house, which is very light and pristine. This office only has two access points, the french doors that open into the house and the window with a beautiful garden beneath it. My client keeps her home in immaculate condition and we did such a great job containging the dust until this point. Even with the doors closed, she was cleaning blue-green dust all over her house. With her permission and thankfully a week of decent weather, we completely sealed off the doors and entered through the windows above the beautiful garden.


The other issue we ran into, and typically happens with dark paint no matter how well we prep, is that we ended up applying 3 coats and then do touch-ups. In addition to painting the cabinets, we were color drenching the room. If you do not know what color drenching is, it means that we also painted all the walls, the ceilings and the baseboards all the same color. At that point, my client did not know if she wanted to paint the doors as well, but I was able to convince her that it would all make perfect sense at the end.


All of these issues not only added a day or two onto the timeline, but also added additional costs for the crew and the paint. And if you have bought paint lately, then you know that can be costly. Thankfully, we only needed one more gallon.



The crew was able to complete painting and was also able to get the lighting and wallpaper hung. The vision is finally coming together and I think we can all agree that the finished product is ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! How cute is my client? You can see how massive the room actually is.




And we are at the end of week, shall I say 6 1/2 ish??!!

Next week, we will start adding the finishing touches and we are so close to the final reaveal!!
