Happy 2019! I thought I’d start the new year off with a new series here on the blog. Admittedly, I don’t blog as much as I’d like to. The truth is, blogging is HUGE time commitment. It looks quick and easy - but it really takes a few hours to pull together a post. So I pop in here when I can - but again - not as often as I would like.

That said, I’ve had this “Get The Look” idea stewing in my mind for a while now. There are a few rooms that I get asked about sources CONSTANTLY. While I don’t like to divulge where I source things for my design clients, I’m happy to spill secrets on pieces from my home or past One Room Challenges.

If you’ve been following along for some time now, you’re likely pretty familiar with The Palm Springs Project. This was the first One Room Challenge that I completed for 2017’s spring season and it was a BLAST! It’s a project that I am constantly asked about, likely because it’s just loads of fun. So, without further delay, you can find the entire source list below. It shares either the exact product link - or - similar styles if the original item is no longer in stock.

Thank you to Megan, my wonderful design assistant, for pulling this source list together! Be warned - this list is JAM PACKED! Not only will you find links to the amazing brass and lucite bar cart - but you’ll also find links to ALL of the pieces you need to style it. NOT ONLY THAT…Megan has gone ahead and completed FOUR MORE ROOMS for you all - so be sure to come back to the blog every Wednesday in January for some additional design inspiration. You don’t want to miss out. ;)

Alright guys, we're almost there. It's week five! This project is wrapping up quite nicely and I am SO excited to have this space shot. We did have some last minute changes - as is common with interior design. There were a few tweaks to the original design plan.

We chose to skip the lamp selected for the sofa's end table, in favor of some plant life. Instead of choosing between two new rugs from World Market, we stole the pink flokati from Natalie's bedroom. It's size was right so we didn't need to purchase the larger jute layer. We didn't wind up installing the Ikea pendant - it just wasn't a needed change and it came down to a decision on time/priorities. Natalie chose to splurge on the bar cart of her dreams - this stunning one from Anthropologie and the space is better for it.

Lastly, one of the biggest changes made was with the wallpaper. We were sent a little bit less than we needed for the fireplace wall and chose to change its home. I honestly think this was for the best. That wall was attracting all of the good stuff! It had all of the character and great props. The back wall was feeling a little overlooked and now that we had a stunning bar cart, it needed a great backdrop. The switch was very welcomed and I actually think it improved the overall design. I can't wait to see shots of the sofa with that wallpaper in the background. 

The shoot is happening today and I unfortunately won't be able to make it, due to a family emergency. To fix this, I created a visual guide for the final styling of the space. Kyle, an amazing local photographer, is going to be there to ensure that the space is photo-ready! I can't wait to share the results with you next week. Stay tuned if you love wild wallpaper!

This week, I thought it would be fun to hear from Natalie on the progress of our Palm Springs Project. Hop on over to her blog to read all about the design process, from the virtual client's perspective!
