Before the New Year came about, I started drafting out my editorial calendar for this year. One of the challenges I knew I would be participating in again is the New Year New Room Refresh Challenge hosted by Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living. So if you are stopping by from Bigger than the Three of Us, Welcome! I love Ashley’s cool, laid back style! You can check out my NC rental house New Year New Room Challenge from last year, here. If you haven’t checked out my Home Tour: Move-In Edition, you just may want to check that out. There are so many spaces that need sprucing up so I am always seeking inspiration and trying to do something to forward the progress in making this home mine. For this challenge, I knew I wanted to add my touch to the foyer and sitting room.

The foyer opens up into the sitting room, so it was only fitting for me to work on both spaces at one time. For some reason when I did the FaceTime walk through for this home, I did not know that the sitting room was open to the foyer. I kept thinking all I had to do was add doors the sitting room to close it off, but to my surprise the sitting room is open and carpeted with a partition wall on the side of the room closest to the front door. I wish the parquet flooring from the foyer flowed into the living room and unfortunately we haven’t had any success in finding matching parquet floors. I even contemplated on DIYing it myself. I know…CRAZY, right?
I do not want to give everything away, but this is kinda what I am working with. I have most to all of this stuff on hand already. I am still debating if I want an acrylic coffee table or this one by Nate Berkus from Target. I am also still contemplating on whether or not I want to go with the Frame of Mind collage Art Print by FFoart. This print is absolutely stunning but gore at the same…I wonder what my guest would think. Hmmmm. Something to think about. I have a couple of other suggestions but they too are a little on the dark side. I just like the colors used. On the wild side, my middle child approved of the art. To my defense, I do not think she knows what she is looking at. So far this is where I am at, jump on over to Jen from Fresh Crush to see what “fresh” style she is bringing into one of her spaces.
