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

P.S. Big thanks to Linda from Calling It Home for having me and for all of the people and brands that helped bring this room to life including: Rustic White, Steve McKenzies, Westside Custom Upholstery, Society Social, Minted, Oomph, AllModern, Britt Bass, Times Two Design, and Mark & Graham.

  • Wow! I’m blown away as I knew I would be!! It turned out amazing. You are totally after my own heart with all of the artwork (I’m kind of obsessed with abstract art right now) and all the pieces work so well together. Great job Mandy, I just love it!

  • I mean, this is PERFECT. Come recreate it in my home please?!

  • Such a cool space, Mandy. I want to come over and hang out! You killed it with the gallery wall. xx

  • Absolute perfection as always! The mix of colors and textures go so well together and that gallery wall is amazing!! Congratulations on another successful design! xo

  • YES! ALL THE EVERYTHINGS!

  • Sejal / 05.06.2015

    So inspired to finally create my own gallery wall!

  • I LOVE how this came out! Absolutely perfection.

    My gallery wall has been neglected for far too long. i just don’t know where to start but I think you may have finally inspired me. Definitely need that big black juju hat!

  • Just stunning. I’m floored!

  • So. Friggin. Good. I love how bright and fun it all is, and it’s inspiring me to get some seriously playful art. Perfect!

  • Mandy, this is just stunning down to every detail! I always enjoy seeing your design; thank you for inspiring me in design and in life! I knew this was going to be a cool, different room when I saw the python console table. The gold accent tables, the gallery wall, and gold pouf tie for second! BRAVO! Such a pleasure to finally meet the person behind such great design last week at The Southern C Summit!

  • Oh, Mandy, you just kill it everytime! Everything you touch turns to gold. Amazing space 🙂 xo

  • Love everything – the bar stools, the skateboard, the beads, the sofa. Fabulous job!!

  • I don’t even know where to begin. The colors are so vibrant, all the details of the accessories and the art out of sight! The hanging chair, the tables…I mean I can go on! Bravo friend, what a beautiful space you have created!

  • Love the gallery wall…your transformation looks beautiful!

  • Gaaahhhh!! So, so colorful and just perfect! I love it! what a happy and chic space to hang out in. You always have fabulous taste! COngrats an a beautiful transformation!

  • Ack!!! This is beyond wonderful!! I’m absolutely blown away by the colours in here – they are so vivid and just pure unadulterated joy! That gallery wall is simply killer! You really did such a beautiful job here, so gorgeously inspiring! Love every last little detail xx

  • WOW!!!! Love all the details, especially the art you added to this space! And may I say, that for such a graphic sofa, it still feels quite ‘neutral’ in this beautiful room!

  • You did it! The wall of pictures looks amazing.. I love how you displayed everything and the hand hook holding the beads is genius! what a cool idea. Like I said in an earlier comment – without seeing the completed room – I could move right it. What a wonderful place to hang out (literally) alone or with friends. Well done!

  • Monica Lavin / 05.06.2015

    Everything is just amazing! I love all of the details, especially the wall gallery! This gives me inspiration for my home office. I usually stick with neutrals and soft colors but maybe I’ll go bold! Great job!

    LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! Could you share the artist of the piece behind the hanging chair? It’s also pictured to the left of the hanging beads below two smaller black and white framed pictures. Thanks a million.

  • Kat Neunaber / 03.23.2016

    Hi Lauren! That piece is by Britt Bass Turner. Here’s her site: http://www.brittbass.com/. You can also find some of her prints here: http://bit.ly/1LH6jUr. Hope this helps! xo

  • I can’t get over how fun your loft is. There are so many details to look at. The gallery wall came together beautifully! The framed salmon colored bird fabric is gorgeous. I looked for the source for it and couldn’t find it? Could you please share? Also the large green abstract art is lovely. Job well done!
