One Room Challenge – Week # 6 – THE REVEAL

Today is the makeover reveal!

For those of you new to the blog, I’ve participated in Calling it Home’s clever makeover internet craze One Room Challenge, and today is REVEAL day!  20 Designer and a bloggers were invited to make over a room in 6 short weeks and hopefully inspire others to do so. Mine took place at our country lake house in Sweden from the 1800’s during a six week period.

Here are all the previous weeks:

WEEK # 5

The room I’ve been making over is our TV Room. Although busiest room in the house and always filled to the brim with people, it was the one that remained painfully “undesigned”.

I didn’t have the opportunity or budget to buy all new furniture pieces, or reupholster anything. Instead I used a bunch of items from my lifestyle label and second hand stores were scoured for pieces to makeover.  Mainly I wanted a new and warm color scheme, and for this makeover , the midnight sun in Sweden served as the design inspiration.
