Welcome to any new readers! I’m Kevin, a high school student with a passion for interior design. I love mixing things up and combining styles to create interesting contrasts and collected layers. I hope you enjoy my One Room Challenge reveal!
Despite a last-minute scramble involving a day-of sofa delivery and planning my photo shoot amid AP exam studying, I’m ecstatic to share the final reveal of my One Room Challenge! Make sure you catch-up on my plans and progress in the post links above. Some of the major challenges with this space included dark brown walls and stained wood window and door casings, as well as the classic renter’s challenge of working with the landlord to approve changes. The change that was not approved was painting over the faux bois wall, which was the biggest compromise of the room. I looked into removable wallpaper, but the wall is pretty large and it would’ve been too expensive, so I hung white curtains instead (and I’m proud to say that I installed them all by myself!!). With paint on the walls and the faux-bois wall hidden, the space felt so different, and much much closer to the solarium feeling I wanted to create. Don’t forget to see the before picture!
The tile floors are pretty funky in this space so I continued the Mediterranean theme with some coastal influences and got pretty crazy with a zebra rug. I also had so much fun painting the panels above the sofa, and adding that green jungle element to the space. I’m thrilled to have started a partnership with Move Loot, who provided the Ficks Reed side chair and gold table lamps. They’ve got a great approach to local used furniture/decor sales and I highly recommend you see if they’re in your area. The final result is pretty eclectic, and definitely a bit louder than I usually lean but it’s fun and inviting and will definitely grow as the room is used more as the outdoor entertaining season commences. A big thank you to my dad for letting me decorate his room and to Linda at Calling it Home for organizing this challenge!
