Welcome to week #2 of the One Room Challenge! I’m thrilled to be participating as a guest designer in this biannual event, where featured designers and guest designers are challenged to makeover a room in 6 weeks!
I’m transforming my living room! If you missed Week #1, click here to read about how my living room looks now, and why I’m focusing on changing the colors of the space.
In the past week, I’ve selected fabrics and placed orders for furniture. This is a quick turn around for custom furniture — and I’ve made special requests to my fabricators to accommodate my short time frame!!
I’ve selected a white crypton fabric to reupholster the sofa from Thibaut Design and have ordered a custom chaise with the same fabric. I’ve been totally into crypton fabric lately, because it’s stain resistant, which means “kid and pet friendly”! Here is a close up of the sofa ‘before’:
Yes, we are those people that let our dog get on the furniture! :) A white crypton sofa will be the perfect backdrop for colorful accent pillows and I won’t have to worry about the dog getting it dirty!
In addition to the sofa, I’m going to have this bench that I inherited from my parents, reupholstered too.
And I’ve decided to add two of these chairs to the space:
Here’s the fabric plan:
This is how it’s looking so far!
