One Room Challenge - Week 5!

This week for the One Room Challenge (Here's an explanation of the blog feature, participating bloggers and the entire concept) I wanted to share the floor plan layout for the space. I'd love to purchase a new sofa for my living room but that's not happening until I've finished paying for my kitchen remodel! (which is well under way) The entry to the home opens right into the living room. This is usually the case for most smaller ranch style homes. It is not ideal but I can't change that right now. I've left a clear pathway to the rest of the home and designed the living room floor plan to be situated to the right. I own the two larger chairs and purchased a new rug. I'm having the ottoman reupholstered and adding some other fresh touches. Here's a peek at some of the new selections and others I'd eventually love to purchase. I'm also going to create an art wall over the two chairs. 
1. Sofa: I don't have quite as much room as pictured above.  My new sofa selection can't be too deep. I'm either going with a classic English roll arm in navy or light grey fabric, a chesterfield or an updated tuxedo style sofa. I'm sort of leaning toward a classic tuxedo style for the streamlined design and smaller scale.

2. ARTWALL: I like both the traditional and modern take on these display walls. I'll most likely combine classic and modern influences with mine.



3. Layered Rugs

I purchased this rug in Natural (bleached is pictured) from Overstock but I'd love to layer some sort of moroccan rug over it! I'm still on the hunt for that one!

for similar options check Etsy

I love the layered rug look!

Be sure to check out the other lovely bloggers and their transformations below. I'm hoping and wishing for more time to work on my own home but my clients, family and Ace come first!!! xo

Great! Can't wait to see the article. Your interior designs and decor choices are very inspiring. I'm about to move in with my boyfriend and sometimes I wish there weren't so many interiors to look at and so many designers - it's so hard to choose!

Haven't considered the layered rug but it does look nice!

I've been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful value
sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be much more helpful than ever before
