Well today is the day, The Big Reveal for the One Room Challenge. Over the past five weeks, you’ve watched my loft come together, and you’ve seen the colorful and quirky vibes that inspire the space. Today, I couldn’t be more excited to show you the final product.
A cozy reading corner with a hanging rattan chair seemed like an obvious choice in the room. Paired with white sheepskin rugs and my favorite gold pouf, the pieces created a separate and distinct sitting area still in view of all the gorgeous art. And I love that I can easily pull my tini table away from the main seating to provide a place to set my wine and current reading materials.
The sofa upholstered in custom Steve Mckenzie’s loop fabric, which you caught a glimpse of last week, is grounded by a classic jute rug that lightens up the dark wood floors and brings the vibe back to casual. Society Social’s python parson table in stone provides the perfect set up for our bar and the Cleo Bunching Tables work perfectly for the odd room size, while allowing space for books and personal items. And because seating is limited my funky, marabou feathered poufs are ready to be put to use as additional seating or to pull up for a quick game of backgammon.
Finally, rounding out the room, and really putting the cherry on the sundae, is my gallery wall. With 24 total pieces hung on one gigantic wall I mixed and matched 3d items such as a gold hand hook, skateboard, and sconce with classic photographs and one of a kind paintings from the likes of Gray Malin, Britt Bass, Minted, and Sally King Benedict to really give it a collected and personal feel. Plus there’s room for the wall to grow and evolve as I continue to find and add new pieces.
Well my friends, that completes my second One Room Challenge (check out the past 5 weeks HERE). The space may have turned out more Palm Springs than Palm Beach, but regardless, I hope you love my loft as much as I do, and I hope that it inspires you to be bold and have fun with design. Life is too short to always play it safe. Truly, MKR
