It’s finally time for the reveal!!
Remember Week 1? I highly suggest you go back to the before pictures for a minute, because we’ve come a long way. To recap, I moved in to a much smaller apartment, with a lot of ill-fitted furniture from my old place. The space needed an overhaul—and it got one! My new space is much better fitted to my lifestyle (and general style). And now that summer is here, I can finally sit back and enjoy!
I had to learn the art of editing lately. Living in a small open space means that the slightest out-of-place item makes the entire room look messy! Because of this, when it came to making decor decisions, my eye was drawn to clean lines and a simple color palette.
I love that the space is small enough to completely transform with just a few pillows and a rug (remember week 4?). I also love the fact that my picture ledge allows me to switch the art around as I please. Since I like to be my own guinea pig when it comes to decorating, I love the versatility that this new place allows me to test out different looks and styles easily. This room is definitely very “me”—a little coastal, a little boho, a little modern and a little traditional. It’s a mix of items I’ve collected over the years, and some new ones thrown in the mix!
I can’t believe I was able to fit three rooms in one tiny space, but it worked! And believe it or not, it’s very functional! Ok, full disclosure: I’ve maybe had dinner at my bistro table once, but I love using it as library table, and use it to display books and flowers. My gals and I love sitting at the “bar”—those Bludot barstools are surprisingly comfortable! Everyone that has sat in them commented on their comfort. Of course, my favorite space remains the “living area” (a.k.a my sofa). Getting to sit back and relax after sitting at my desk for many hours is pure bliss.
I don’t mean to play favorites, but a piece I love in the room is Oomph X Savvy Home Tini Table—you might remember it from our collaboration last year. The fact that I had a say in the design of the piece makes it extra special. I’m thrilled to announce that Oomph has agreed to re-release the table for the One Room Challenge , and you guys get first dibs! Be quick though because they sold like hotcakes last year.
I won’t lie: it’s 12:16am and I’m not sure what my mental state is at this point: I’ve been styling, shooting and editing for the past 12 hours and I’m all bugged out. But we got here—and I’m thrilled with the result! I cannot wait to sit back and enjoy it… I hope you like it too! I spoke a lot about my process over the last few weeks, so you can re-read all about it below!
