Hello my friends! Are you enjoying the ORC season as much as I am? It’s SO much fun to see the progress of the 20 amazing One Room Challenge Designers. I’m currently dying over the unexpected direction this room is taking!
While the Wednesdays of ORC season are for the 20 official designers to share what’s been happening in their rooms, Thursdays are open to the great big wide world to link up a room to the challenge at Calling It Home. Last week I jumped in as a linking participant with a client space I am working on: a living room in need of a refresh. It’s a great space with tons of natural light from a big bow window, but the family that lives here rarely uses it.
This room opens to a beautiful new kitchen and beyond that, a sunroom where the family watches TV and hangs out. The large living room would be a great space for entertaining, but seating and a conversation area are definitely lacking.
So first up – addressing the seating situation.
I gave my client Linda some options for chairs that are in the scale we are looking for, all from a local furniture store that we both like. A huge bonus was that they all came stocked in great neutral fabrics. Giving upholstered furniture a test run for comfortability is a MUST so I always recommend shopping locally for chairs and couches.
