Project Dollhouse Family Room Styling and Sources

Sunday, March 31, 2013

I have a few more photos I wanted to share with you of my family room makeover that was part of Linda at Calling it Home's One Room Challenge. I also got lots of emails inquiring about sources for some of the items in my room, so I've supplied links wherever I could. 


I got more emails about the Lemon Tree fabric than anything else.  Sadly, I can't share a source with you for this.  The fabric was a lucky find from a small fabric store in Atlanta near my mother's house.  I bought what was left on the roll and haven't seen it or been able to find it since.  If you want to have a go at locating it yourself, the fabric is by Greeff for Schumacher.  The name on the selvage is "Lemon Tree".  The store I where I found it is Budget Upholstery.  Information about them here. (They also made the slipcovers for my Mid-Century barrel chairs years ago and have reupholstered sofas and chairs for me. If you're in the area, I highly recommend them)


 Metal stoolLeopard print fabricCowhide rug/Yellow velvet fabric.  The rattan armchairs were an estate sale find.



My huntboard was styled mainly with things I already had.  The bird picture was given to me by my mother.  The chinoiserie lamp and mirror were thrifted, and the "Kimberly" brick was a happy find that was uncovered during a historic home restoration a few years back.  My husband found it in the basement and presented it to me as a gift. The bust/planter was a new purchase.  I altered the color by pouncing on small amounts of leftover gray, cream and beige paint.  When that was dry I rubbed on a thin layer of Minwax wood stain to give it some age.  

The needlepoint leopard and the pottery planter were both estate sale finds - not at the same time.  


All estate sale/thrift finds


Wall paint is Benjamin Moore's Moonlight White.  This room is blessed with a southern exposure that is unobstructed by trees or shade of any kind, so the light is wonderful all day long.

I have one more post planned for this room, and it addresses my heavy use of vintage and "found items".  If there's anything else you're curious about, shoot me an email!

It all looks great Kim. I've been eyeing that same bottle (at my thrift store for weeks) you have on your table. It's a liquor bottle right? I love it!

You did such a beautiful job styling the room. I do adore that fabric, too bad it's not available.

I hope your email and/or phone is blowing up with people who want to publish this room for you in print. It's beautiful and I could see it on the pages of any of my favorite magazines. Your mix of estate sale finds, fresh fabrics, and that beautiful natural lighting is really wonderful.

Hi Kim. When I saw that bamboo mirror I thought to myself that I must email you right away as I've been looking for *Exactly* that! I cannot believe that you found that thrifting. Stunning! Your layers of interesting and surprising elements is so wonderful.
