The REVEAL!! One Room Challenge # week 7


The library is done. Down to the wire like always!

Swedish photographer Anna Maria (Instagram @annamariafotograf) came here at the last minute to shoot so we could include the artwork from our charity which just arrived the night before and was the perfect missing piece for the room.

If you are new to this blog… WELCOME!

I’m Jill Sorensen (Instagram @jillsorensen) a Swedish interior designer living in LA. I have a lifestyle label JILL SORENSEN LIFESTYLE offering modern bedding and home decor (Instagram@jillsorensenlifestyle).

The room I tackled was the additional room created in the living room when we renovated a few years back. While we’ve been waiting for some building permits it turned in to a temporary work space and could not have been more depressing.  I wanted to turn it  into a fun, colorful library/guest bedroom that was not boring.

You can see the before HERE.

Here was the design plan (which changed a bit..)

Here is the room today…

All animal heads and horns are not real.

 Artwork by Events by Andre Wells for Knock Out Abuse Against Women (a charity my friend and I started years ago to help victims of domestic violence.) I just had to have it in the room to stand in solidarity with all the brave women in this #metoo wave sweeping the western world at the moment.

This marble fireplace is from the 60’s and was originally in the living room but with the addition of this extra room it’s the library.  We just got it to work this week.

The mirror along with many other items in the room have been used in previous homes I’ve lived in. Before using anything new I always like to reuse items to see f they can fit in to any new design ideas and therefore get a new life.

Twig stools from Hayneedle.

Faux plants from The Mine.

Uttermost Janina table from Bellacor.

Leap table lamp in Black from Article

Article has really chic and well priced mid century items which were all perfect for the room.

Super chic fabric from @Stroheimfabrics.

And this is how to turn the library in to a cozy guest bedroom….

Our adorable custom made sleeper sofa in yellow with black buttons turns in to a comfortable bed in a flash!

Here is is with my new bedding design VICTORY in black.


This little room becomes a fun little bedroom.

Silken Solid Sheet Set from Annie Selke in pale blue adds just the right hue and glam touch.

Faux Animal heads from Hayneedle and The Mine.

I’m super excited about this bedding, we’re just finalizing what colors to stock it in. It looks so great in every color!

And last a quick look where it came from.

Originally we added the extra room two years ago..

It became a temporary work space while we waited for building permits and it got worse by the day!

It looked like this six weeks ago.

Check out all the fun makeovers by the rest of the group!

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Your library looks wonderful! Can you give me some information about the sofa bed. When I tried to go to the link it did not work for me. By the way is the sofa bed comfortable? It looks great but I do want it to be good to sleep on as well.

    Many thanks.

  2. I love this room! I have to say I was a little scared when you first said it would be red, but you made it look so fabulous. The faux antlers are so great and the fireplace is incredibly beautiful. I could hang out in this room all day, with your dogs of course! Great job Jill!! Brava!

  3. I am late to the game – checking in on Reveal Week only. May I tell you I was feeling very uninspired UNTIL I got to your reveal??? Oh MY! What a fun, fresh pop of energy. LOVE this reveal! AMAZING!

  4. Wow, Jill this is beautiful. I was afraid of the red, but now I love it. I also love the double duty this room has by becoming a guest room, too. Your charity work is impressive. Wonderful transformation.

    1. Thank You Linda, always so fun to participate and always unexpected results! Look forward to our charity project :):) xoxo

  5. Det blev jattefint. Jag Var ocksa lite fundersam nar du visade moodboarden och annu mer nar det blev mer och mer rott. Men som alltid I dina project blir slutresultatet toppen. Nu vill jag garna se Lukas lagenhet och Virginiahuset som verkar otroligt spannande. Onskar dig trevlig forsta advent.

    1. Tack Ann! Ja det blev mycket rött men kändes bättre för huset så att det kunde bli mer som ett riktigt bibliotek. Ska visa fler bilder i veckan på Luke’s lägenhet och nya kontoret och huset i Virginia ska vi plåta nästa resa dit.:):)

  6. Jill I always love your style and this room was no exception….killer space! That fireplace mantel is just gorgeous and everything you did brought out the beauty of it. Love the red walls…..You are the color queen for sure:)
