ORC Reveal Week #6 ... This is It!!

This is it!  Can you believe ... 6 weeks already where Linda invited 20 bloggers to participate in the  One Room Challenge.  Okay, one had to give it up.  It's okay ... we get it, life happens.  But 19 of us continued on and I have to say through this little project friendships deepened and stress levels heightened!  But most of all, the fun we had made it all worthwhile!  And for me ... thank goodness for a precious client who let me invade her home time after time for photos, regrouping, trying things over and over ... and just plain putting up with me!  I love you Liz!!

You can see here where it all began ... and here it is ... well, let me show you some detail shots before you get the whole thing. After all ... it took 6 weeks ... you should have to wait a few minutes before you are introduced to the entire Keeping Room!!

The fireplace is now a true focal point of this Keeping Room ...

I love the details ... and who couldn't use a little "pear" in their life ...

The bling of the floor ... 

The Brimfield Suzani pillows ... which I have to tell you that I purchased for $60.00 and just spied them last weekend at a little boutique in town for $120.00 each ... oh yeah!!

We warmed the firebox with ferns for the summer ... back to birch in the winter ... moveable art!

More Pear ... 

and more ... pear and suzani ... in case you missed them ... 

And here ... what you have been waiting for ... the whole shebang!

A close up!

the side ... Glamour Shot!

I cannot get enough of these Suzani Pillows!

This room has been so much fun to work on.  My sweet client and her family make it all the more fun ... and the knowledge that this room no longer looks like this ...

But looks like this ... 

And now houses a MudRoom and a place for her family to "Keep" for a long happy life!

These past six weeks have been fun and I have learned so much from my "Lady" Challengers ... please stop over and check out all that has been happening. I have no doubt you will be amazed ... and thank you so much for sharing all this with us!!
