One Room Challenge Coastal Living-Family Room Reveal

I'm so glad you are here!  If this is your first time visiting love my simple home, welcome.  For the past 7 weeks, I have been working on a makeover of our living-family room for the One Room Challenge and today I am sharing the finished space.  If you missed any of the past weeks, please feel free to click through!

This is my second Room Makeover in the ORC as a guest participant.  This time around a one-week extension was added.  Before I begin the final reveal of my coastal-inspired space I want to thank Linda from Calling It Home who is the creator of the One Room Challenge!  Thank you, Linda!  Without this challenge, my rooms might never get finished.

These seven weeks have flown by and the days have been filled with expectations, excitement, and some anxiety.  I'm so in love with the final design and very proud to share it with you today!


One Room Challenge Week 6

Hello friends, it's week 6 of the One Room Challenge!  This week the sofa arrived and I purchased an area rug for the room.  I still have some work to wrap up over the weekend to prepare for the reveal next week.  Accessories need to be picked out, the art will be installed, and I need to spend time styling and photographing the space.

There's no denying fall is here and Thanksgiving is just a few weeks away!  With the holidays, slowly approaching, you want your fall dining table to be the best it can be.  Today I am bringing you 5 simple tips to make your fall dining table ready for entertaining.


one room challenge week 5-fabric choices & a setback

We are in week 5 of the One Room Challenge.  This week I ran into a serious issue with a leak in one of the windows in the family room. We had a heavy rainstorm and rain leaked through the exterior siding into the window casing causing damage to the freshly painted window and window sill.  After the repairs were complete I focused on fabric choices for the space.

Catch-up on  week 1/     week 2/     week 3/     week 4


One Room Challenge week 4-entryway and curtains

It's time for another One Room Challenge update!  This week the mirror and area rug for the entryway were delivered, I hung the shades and curtains and finished a new project that wasn't on my original to-do list.

I also have some news to share from Linda the creator of the ORC.  Linda extended the challenge for an extra week due to the natural disasters (hurricanes and wildfires) that lead up to or occurred during the challenge.  My heart goes out to everyone affected by them.

Shipments and scheduled work have been delayed or canceled altogether for many designers so it makes sense for the extra week.  The new reveal date for the designers will be November 15th  and the new reveal date for the guest participants (me) will be November 16th so mark your calendars.

In case you are stopping by for the first time here is my design plan that I am working on.   If you'd like to catch up from the beginning you can do so here:  Week 1/      Week 2/      Week 3     Now on to week 4........

five minute fall leaf swag

'Tis the season for colorful leaves, pumpkin picking, and fireside lounging. I've swapped out my summer wreath for this fall swag that took five minutes to make.  I love a project that only takes a few minutes and this simple swag is one of those.

One Room Challenge Week 3-living-family room makeover

It's already week 3 of the One Room Challenge!  I've reached the halfway point and I couldn't be more excited!  Last Week I talked about the Sherwin Williams paint color for the room that I absolutely love!  The paint color is a creamy white.  I think it is the perfect backdrop for the coastal style I am going for in the living - family room.  You can see my design plan for the room HERE.
