For the second time, I am hooking up with the latest One Room Challenge linking event sponsored by Linda at Calling it Home. Six weeks, one room. The objective? Transform a room without losing your mind and/or husband. Six weeks sounds like a lot of time -that's like half way through May, but believe you me, it's a nanosecond in decorating/remodeling time.
This landing is actually pretty big and acts sort of like a library/work zone rather than a byway. I want to make it even more so. I often eat my lunch at this table because the light is really great up here (there are skylights above the stairs leading to the top floor). Right now it looks pretty haphazard -the proportions of the desk are wrong, the lighting is basically nonexistent and a rug would be great to name the obvious.
(Incidentally, that second desk you see in the farther hallway is not usually there and is temporary, but that is a whole nother story. I'm actually planning on shuffling around a lot of furniture for this redo).
My design objective is to turn this space into a cohesive room that looks well thought out and polished. I plan to stay within my usual aesthetic which I would describe as sparsely eclectic, but I need to balance things out so that this hallway doesn't just look like a repository for random stuff and furniture.
I'm also on the hunt for some lighting and a rug and possibly a chair or two.
Be sure to check out all the other participants here, it's so fun to live vicariously through others.
