Today is One Room Challenge Day! If you are new and don't know what the One Room Challenge is it was started by Linda from Calling it Home some years ago. In this challenge she lines up twenty talented interior designers and professional bloggers to redo a room in their home in just six weeks- we update you once a week on Wednesdays. And today is Wednesday! (in case you missed it here is last week's post where I talk about my plans for the credenza. It shold arrive on Friday. I'm just dying to see it. Today, I want to talk about art. I have three walls to decorate and all of the pieces above to play with.
Finally! You all remember back in September I posted about transforming my old Crate and Barrel armoire into a Bar'Moire (see old post here) since our new home was lacking such a space. I finally have a reveal for you and boy was it a fun one to both plan and make. It is very different from how I originally envisioned it but am so happy with it. I still might add a neon light somewhere. But here you go- (keep in mind it was difficult to photograph because of the angles and lighting.)
Everything about this home is exciting. Pay close attention to the artwork, floors and lighting choices. Oh and it's in Paris. It really can't get any better, right?
and arranged flowers and washed dishes. Happy Friday my sweet loves. It's Friday and it's warm. This makes me very happy. Some days ago I mentioned I would try this pearl DIY with my jeweler friend. So we did, and made some cute things: rings, bracelets and a necklace. DIYing with a friend is so much more fun than going at it solo. We laughed so much and gossiped- perfect girl time. We then did the usual...arranged flowers and washed the dishes...

We celebrated our anniversary last night. Yummy french food and champagne. It was fun, but it was a school night. Oh and yes, we did have champagne- Did I mention that? So, I will make it short and sweet today. Just some pretty blues and greens today to get you excited about all that outdoor time you will be enjoying soon.
A week goes by faster than you think! But I have made good progress with my family room.

Let me show you-
Marta de la Rica graced the cover of Elle Decor Spain recently with that first photo. She Spanish, young, so cute, and of course, has flawless taste. I just adore that lilac sofa with the two round glass coffee tables and the black and white awning peeking in the background. And what about this blue sofa? I'm currently looking for a lush blue velvet like this one for my living room sofa so of course it was one of the first things I noticed. It looks stunning against those white and black bookcases. That black trim is just genius. What a chic combination. Here are more shots on this apartment.
