Here we are, week 7! This post will be long, fair warning because I have so many details to go into!
First, if I think back, 7 weeks ago, October 5 – I was sailing through, working in a retail store & designing on the side. Definitely more on track with my interior design career than ever but better than halfway through October, the opportunity that I’ve been waiting for since graduation presented itself! I’m now working full time in an interior designer position at The Galleries of Brian Brigham & I couldn’t be more excited!
I know this a post about my One Room Challenge but I felt the need to share since my posts during these 7 weeks certainly haven’t been my best work. The room turned out great but the blogging side of this took a bit of a back seat. Changing jobs is not something I’m used to — I worked my first retail job for almost 14 years & I’m only 29 so do that math… anyway, I’m so thankful for this opportunity!
Back to the challenge…
If you remember, we were dealing with orange walls, a builder-grade light fixture & while the quality of the existing furniture was great, it was time for a change.
The walls are light & bright “Moonshine” from Benjamin Moore, I added this rug & a wooden beaded chandelier. The new table is from Magnolia Home & chairs are from Wayfair. The stools aren’t here yet but we’ll just call that phase two 😉 drapes are from Ballard Design & even though they don’t have the tassels like the original Pottery Barn ones, they’re classic & worked out perfectly! I styled the table with some Blue Willow transferware, a huge blue & white vase, some Mackenzie-Childs Courtly Check, a whole bunch of eucalyptus & flowers & the striped napkins from Hearth & Hand with Magnolia from Target… which I’ll remind you are my favorite & I bought all of them just in case 😂 Forgive the iPhone pictures, I will update this post soon!
This was a lot of fun & I’m already plotting for April! Hope you guys enjoyed following the journey!
