Blurry picture of when we first looked at the house
Anyhoo, I just recently found a little bench on Craigslist that needs a little work. So you can see that I got a big jumpstart on the challenge. But there's still a lot to do and some of it will be out of my hands. Here's the list.
-Fabric selection for cushion and pillows
-Window treatments for windows going up the stairs
-Console table and styling
-Mirrors and/or artwork
So here's my vision...but don't hold me to it.

As for design, since the walls are very traditional chinoiserie I'm probably going to give everything else a more modern twist. The first floor colors are going to be greens and blues, and I'm leaning toward greens for the foyer. I'm also throwing some animal print in there for good measure. One thing that is not going to happen in time is a stairway rug. Eventually I want to have a continuous rug all the way up to the third floor. Unfortunately the third floor staircase has yet to be addressed so it's going to have to wait. That's all I've got so far. Stop by next week to see my progress, and don't forget to check out all the other ORC challengers and linking participants.
