The One Room Challenge- Week Two

Last week I began the One Room Challenge! Linda at My Crafty Home Life  kindly invited me to join her and a total of 19 design-oriented bloggers chronicling one room makeovers within our homes or clients homes within a six week time frame.

In my first post
 I began with showing you the basic bones and "style history" of my living room which is now undergoing yet another "refreshment" or "zhushing"!!

Here are some examples of inspirational spaces
 and items that speak to the changes that I am making in the room.

I like the softness this room evokes....

 I am all about adding interesting vintage trays around the room...and fresh flowers too!

Both of these images speak to me with their pops of bright pink and gold accents...

I am very inspired by modern tables....

An interesting "wow"chair with some really interesting fabric is something I want to add into the room...ideally I will find an antique chair that I can redo.....

I need some chandelier bling!

Gold and brass accents are just glam!

I want to add interesting lighting as you enter the space....

I want to add some Moroccan elements into the space as well....

I love many elements within this image... the cool table, the mirror and chandelier but especially...

all of the fabulous....

large and stylish coffee table books used as table architecture!

Old books will play a role too....

and of course I will include all my naturals...that evoke the beach....somehow that "feeling" finds it way into most of my spaces in one form or another....

The ambiance that I really want to evoke in the space is one in which this gentleman would be right at home... yes...a girl can dream ;)...I want a sophisticated, glamorous, adult space that is comfortable but a way that blends many of the design elements that I am drawn to...even though one might not think of putting them all together!

So, I hope I have provided you a little "preview" of what my design mind is marinating on today!
