It’s week 5 in One Room Challenge fall 2015 and despite not doing any major DIY this round, I’m exhausted!
In Week 1 I introduced my living room, which is need of a refresh to finalize the design of the room, and provided my inspiration like the beautiful living room with light blue and coral accents.
I’m adding more blue and white to our currently coastal living room, that has lots of coral.
In Week 2 I provided you my plan, mood board, and to do list.
In Week 3 I provided my progress report and all my fun home décor and accessory finds!
I’ve decided to go with an oval gold two tier bar cart and a few of the accessories shown here!
My custom pillows from New South Home Couture arrived this week along with my monogramed herringbone throw from Tiny Prints and the combination has already done wonders for the room! Here are 3 of the 5 custom pillows:
Squared Away Geometric Coral
Safari Trim Cream and Coral
The other two pillows are navy linen for the coral Greek key sofa.
After searching every Target and Home Goods in Charlotte I finally found my mirrored picture frames at Michael’s and it was buy 1 get 1 free! I am so excited about my find, but need to add backs to them to be able to hang to the wall tonight.
If you’re following me on Instagram then you saw the sneak peek of my transformed arm chair! Recall, I found this chair for 25 cents at a yard sale in Charlotte!
It gone from this:
Nailhead trim was added all the way around the chair and it looks AMAZING!!
Today has been crunch time between the electrician installing my new light pendant, picking up my re-upholstered chair from The Upholstery Guy AKA Baity’s Custom Upholstery, and finishing the install, which is still not complete.

I’ve added a few more things to my to do list and I have to get this all completed by tomorrow in time for my photographer to shoot the space. Cue the freak out music!
You might be scratching your head why on earth am I in a time crunch when this is 6 week? Well, when you hiring a photographer to shoot the space you need to hire at least a week out to provide them enough time to edit the images and send them back to you to edit into your post.
