One Room Challenge Living Room Reveal

Well, here it is folks, the final week of the One Room Challenge and my Living Room Reveal. For me, this ended up being more about the process rather than the end result. It was a long, complicated journey with several bumps in the road like being ill and isolated for a week. There were shipping delays and plans that fell through. But, ultimately, I’m proud for pushing through and improving this space in our home.

Living Room Refresh- What I Accomplished:

bookshelf styling with neutral decor
Ladder Shelf to add some height and dimension to the space

My favorite view!

What Did Not Get Completed:

  • Fireplace: I had grand visions of replacing the mantle or adding a feature wall but after careful consideration, we decided against it at this time
fireplace styling with artwork, vases, and sconces
Art Prints from Juniper Print Shop

Functional Coffee Table with Storage: Previously, we had a large trunk that stored our board games. While I loved it, the hinges made it difficult to use. I searched high and low for one I liked that was both functional and pretty.

Ultimately, I moved one from our family room in here so we can at least use the top for games but I’m considering some of these Round Wood Coffee Tables

  • Chairs: Admittedly, I did not have much of a plan here. Because the chairs were dependent on the sofa and that took me weeks to decide on, the chairs became something to cross off the list…. for now.
  • I ended up pulling in two vintage chairs from our beach house that I love, though they aren’t super functional here. I’ve got my eye on some of these 9 Low Profile Accent Chairs I rounded up though!

  • Shades: I hoped to incorporate the same woven blinds I use in our other rooms (bedroom, kitchen, bathroom) but did not plan for the shipping delay due to Covid. These beauties will arrive soon, just not in time for the big reveal.
