One Room Challenge: Final Week November 2015

Entrance hall transformation for the One Room Challenge using Farrow & Ball All White paint, Karastan Carpets and a Christina Baker Painting

Yay!!  Jane's entry is finished, and she's very happy with the final result.  To catch up, go here.  I'll be editing and adding significantly to this post over the course of the day.  I'm starting very briefly, because I'm exhausted, and I'm not sure how many sentences I'm capable of stringing together at the moment.

I've been dying to show you Jane's new Christina Baker painting. Just WOW. Really, no words can describe how gorgeous this is. Oh, and if you haven't seen one of Christina's paintings in person, photos don't capture the loveliness.  She'd emailed us an image, but when we took it out of the box, Jane and I both gasped. It's that pretty.  And, it's probably one of the only times I've ever known us to be short on words : ).

Isn't it breathtaking?  Jane is THRILLED.

I've shown you the stair runner already, and here is the new area rug.  Both are from Karastan.  We've been very impressed by the quality, and by how great they've been to work with.  I love the herringbone pattern on the stairs with the subtle strip in the rug.  


Probably the most impactful change we made was painting.  The walls went from yellow to Farrow and Ball's incredible All White, which is now hands down my favorite new paint.  


DecoratorsBest provided the fabrics for the chair that you see just beyond the secretary.  You can see the gorgeous Lee Jofa fabric much better in the image below.


We used Ocicat in Sea Mist for the chair seat and Sweet Grass in Aqua for the welt.  This was my second time to work with DecoratorsBest.  They've been fantastic each time, and I'm looking forward to working with them again.

More on the secretary styling soon.  


Jane loves these two books by authors with Dallas ties, and had them both on hand for photos.



I was so excited Jane wanted to use this planter.  It's spectacular in person.


Why not use an umbrella stand as a vase?  These Monstera leaves fill in the bit of extra wall by the door beautifully.


A HUGE thank you to Calling It Home for creating The One Room Challenge and including me this round.  Jane says thank you, too, Linda : ).

Don't miss seeing all of these gorgeous spaces:
