Hi there! Thanks for checking back in on our One Room Challenge Living Room Makeover!
I'm in Charleston getting ready for my book signing tomorrow but I'm still making progress at the ranch - I have to! No rest for the weary with the ORC!
The photo above is our inspiration. I am crazy about this room and, because the ranch is a space that my entire family enjoys, I felt like we needed a vote on the "look" for the space and this one won!
I love this photo too - the unpolished silver trophy cups and the black and white photo are so charming.
I found this black and white 1" check fabric marked down to $6/yard (yes - you read that right!) so I went ahead and bought tons of it! Now I just need to get work on getting it up on the windows and walls!
I've also ordered this Derby Equestrian Side Table which I hope will be the perfect place to set my glass of wine when I sit down with a book - that scenario might have to wait until my children have grown but a girl can dream right?
I've done a lot of ordering actually! I also ordered these wonderful side chairs from World Market - a pair for $399! I think they will be great on either side of the armoire that is already in the room and they are light enough that they can be picked up and moved around the room when there are more people gathered.
The other things I want in the room include a club fender (I'm on the hunt for one so please let me know if you have any resources!),
equestrian paintings (I bought a big lot of paintings in Ireland in July - can't wait for their arrival!)
and a splash of color (still trying to decide on the accent color but I'm leaning towards red.) What do you think? (loving this look with the Zebra Rug!)
I hope you will follow along for the next four weeks leading up to our big reveals!
Here are links to the other participating blogs.
By the way, I can't figure out who to credit for these inspirational photos. Does anyone know? I'd love to be able to provide the proper links and credits. I found these on Pinterest.
