One Room Challenge Final Reveal

Welcome to the One Room Challenge final reveal!  I was thrilled and honored that Linda at Calling it Home asked me to participate in her six week event, and I have been so appreciative of all the encouraging comments and support you have provided along the way! For this challenge, I decided to transform my home office, using Lilly Pulitzer's personal desk, purchased at her estate auction, as my inspiration. To start at the beginning of this makeover, click here

With the exception of the desk splurge, this room was designed on a shoestring budget, and was coordinated around several key elements I already owned including the coral silk Dupioni drapes I salvaged from our last home, my collection of blue and white China, and the navy and white Stark rug I scored for a song on eBay. I hope you like it! 


Click here for a tutorial on how to create this budget-friendly Lilly Pulitzer bulletin board!




These West Elm mirrored frames were extremely difficult to photograph... Why oh why didn't I hire a professional photographer?! I promise to find a way to redeem myself! Please forgive me?












SOURCES: 

Lilly Pulitzer sheet for bulletin board and pillow: Garnet Hill
Lucite desk chair: Amazon 
Stark rug, "Beatrice" in navy and white: eBay 
Palm: Costco
Lamp: Murano, vintage 
Desk calendar: Sugar Paper
Blue and white pencil holder: The Pink Pagoda
Three Wise Monkeys prints: The Pink Pagoda
Mirrored frames: West Elm 
Other blue and white accessories: Estate
Zebra dish/paperclip holder: Jonathan Adler 
Flamingo notepad: Mac & Murphy (Rifle Paper) 
Elephant console: Estate (similiar console available via Circa Who)
Rose vase: Repurposed Diptyque candle
Vintage mirrored bookcase, by Ello: Again & Again
Lilly Pulitzer art: Etsy 

Thanks to Linda, I now have two rooms in our home completely decorated! Click here to see the powder room I transformed during the last One Room Challenge, when I was a linking participant. I have also been working hard to finalize the rest of our home, which we moved into last fall, and I will be debuting pictures of our Classic White kitchen, Brazilliance banana leaf dining room, and more soon. In the meantime, I'm heading over to see what the other ORC participants are up to, and I'll be checking back at Calling it Home tomorrow for the ORC Linking Participants! Thank you so much for following this adventure!
