Welcome to week three of the One Room Challenge. We are officially half way through the six week challenge and I am actually feeling pretty good about my status. But then again, there is still lots to do so maybe I shouldn’t count my chickens before they hatch.
This week I am going to share all of the details on the wallpaper ceiling, the spider chandelier and the freshly painted white walls! (Last week I shared the details on the table and chairs)
Here is a fun view into the dining room from the barrel hallway that houses our bar area.
Can we just chat about this ceiling? When we moved in I was super excited to “inherit” this beautiful creation! Never in a million years is this something I would have thought to do… and I love it! That said, it has proven interesting to work with since I didn’t have the original vision and furniture for this space as a whole that included this pattern and color. It has forced me to really think outside the box and that is always welcome!
The dining room ceiling is wallpapered with this gray trellis pattern which I think is a timeless choice. The paper is Phillip Jeffries Imperial Gates wallpaper. The color is white and slate on Hemp. It has almost a metallic feel so is pretty hard for me to photograph but here you can see the detail closer.
The chandelier was another item we “inherited” and it is the perfect understated light to go with the ceiling. The light is called a Spider Chandelier from a store here in Atlanta called South of Market.
White paint. White paint. White paint. It sounds so simple when you say it. But if you’ve ever ventured into the white paint world, you know it is far from simple! With this statement ceiling, I really didn’t know what to do but I did know that I was not happy with the current creamy color.
Here you can see the existing color that was on the walls and trim, compared to the bright white. We did the same color on the walls and trim and I love how fresh and crisp it feels!
After MUCH debate, I landed on Benjamin Moore Decorator’s White and I could not be happier! TIP- make sure you get your Benjamin Moore white paint from Banjamin Moore- Sherwin Williams is not an exact match!
You can also see here that I painted the existing console a dark gray so I can check that off the list as well!
Hmmmm… maybe I don’t have QUITE as much done as I thought! Better get busy!
