It’s here it’s here. The moment we’ve all been waiting for. The reveal of our bohemian, eclectic family room. Okay “the moment we’ve all been waiting for” is probably dramatic. But still today is a big day. Because today all of the spaces, from both the official and guest ORC participants are officially revealed and mine is one of them! Make sure you check out all the other spaces here: The Calling It Home One Room Challenge. But before you go, check out our pad….
The room is anchored by my Article Burrard sea salt grey sofa and Article charme tan leather Nord chairs. These pieces are so sleek and cool. Comfy and just perfection for the space. They were the perfect neutral base to allow me to add loads of texture and color in the pillows and textiles. Having the opportunity to work with Article is quite literally a dream come true. Their pieces are such high quality, built to last and cozy. I hope to use many more of their stunning Articles throughout our home in the future.
One of the challenges of this space is that we have two story ceilings in half the room and 8 foot tall ceilings in the other half. This quirk made the TV focal wall with its two ceiling heights a tricky undertaking.
I ultimately decided to embrace the varying heights and make them look entirely different. One finished in shiplap, one painted and filled with a gallery wall of oversized prints by Little Brick Home. I chose to embrace the oddity and make it a feature, instead of an obstacle. I think this decision proved to be a success.
The once a wet bar, turned make shift office nook, has also been transformed. Now it is a big girl office space. We have three bedrooms and are soon to be a family of 4 once baby girl arrives; so we can’t use a bedroom as an office. This little nook is the perfect spot for me to handle business. With lighting by Lucent, wallpaper by Milton & King a clock by Mod North and Co, an amazing photo by Lindsey Calin Photography, and a DIY craigslist desk makeover. This nook now feels polished, girly and cool. #GirlBoss.
The wall adjacent to the TV is tall and awkward because it’s an odd blank space next to a bank of windows. When I told my husband I wanted to put a shelf up super high on this wall he told me I was nuts. He may be right. I mean with how often I rearrange things, putting a shelf up so high that I will need a ladder in order to reach my knick knacks may not have been a practical decision; but it looks so pretty… No regrets!
The beautiful cactus wall hanging below the shelf is named Phoenix and was custom made for our home by Alicia, owner of The Dancing Tapestry.
Now lets take a quick walk down memory lane shall we, so we can all remember where we started and appreciate how far we’ve come…
Okay erase that ugly from your mind… and remember her as she is now!
