If we haven't met, I'm Kim Lemmon, and I own a little design firm in Chattanooga, TN called The Green Room Interiors. I'm all about classic design that feels fresh and vibrant, and since the room I'm doing for the ORC is in my own home, I'm excited that I can make it a true expression of my personality and my personal style. And isn't that what great design is all about?
Here's the room I completed for my very first One Room Challenge, about 3 1/2 years ago. It's the family room in my circa 1972 French Provincial ranch I affectionately refer to as "Project Dollhouse". The art on my gallery wall gets moved from time to time and I have since replaced the sofa with a vintage hunter green velvet Tuxedo sofa, but for the most part this room has functioned perfectly for our family. If only it stayed this tidy all the time.
My next ORC room was my kitchen, seen here:
I also joined in on the fun as a linking participant with my hall bath makeover seen below. I'm still completely smitten with the Brunschwig & Fils damask wallpaper:
and then finally, my living room and dining room combo:
Great, because what I'm going to show you now is tough. Trust me, it's even more painful for me than it is for you. It's an empty bedroom I'm claiming as my home office. I may or may not have organization/storage issues that need to be addressed. Luckily my assistant is pretty cute.
When you don't have proper storage, stuff ends up all over the floor. Infrequently used exercise equipment will be relocated to the basement, where it is even less likely to get used.
Nice. The upside is that with before photos this bleak, there's nowhere to go but up.
I do hope you'll come back next week to learn about my plans for my command central. I'm sure it will come as no surprise to you that you won't see gray walls and neutral furnishings. I adore surrounding myself with beautiful color and find it so exciting to come up with interesting color combinations. So that's what we'll be doing over here anyway.
Thanks for stopping by! Please make sure to visit the main event bloggers here and all of the other linking participants here
And a big thank you to Linda at Calling it Home for dreaming this all up and hosting.
