Week 2: The One Room Challenge, Lucy's Room

Wednesday, October 12, 2016

Hi Folks! The One Room Challenge started last week and we are off to a great start with Lucy's room. Here is a reminder of what Lucy's board looks like now.

Over the past week we have made quite a bit of progress. We installed some shelves in this funny nook that is created by a chimney bumpout and the wall.  The use of space is so much better!

And I have been experimenting with rugs. I got this large oriental rug on craigslist for a steal and I loved the size and how soft it was but alas, it just looked too masculine.
I ended up purchasing a rug from an Etsy Seller in Turkey and I love it (the one on my board). The colors are subtle and the dancing ladies on the rug are so fun!

It  smells a bit like a hookah lounge which I suppose is the price you pay when you buy a rug from Turkey. But the smell is dissipating and nothing a good dose of Febreze won't fix.

Stay tuned on Instagram and next week on the blog as we get up and running with paint colors and other new purchases!


  1. your mood board is fabulous. this room will be precious!!

  2. Love the rug and your design concept. Too funny about the hookah smell - I always wondered about that.
