A couple of weeks ago Jewel from Jeweled Interiors reached out to me and a couple other bloggers to share an idea she had. She wanted to put together a blogger challenge where we would get to choose our own adventure and refresh a space with our colorful flair! You know I love color so, immediately I was on board! I wasn’t sure what space I was going to design since I’m currently crashing with my parents. For those of you new to my blog we sold our house last year because we weren’t in a great school district. We didn’t find a new house before the beginning of the school year so, we moved in with my parents so, my oldest could start school. We have yet to find our new house so, we are still crashing! I looked around my parents house and found the perfect spot that could use a little love and adventure refresh!
CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE BLOG CHALLENGE!
Their upstairs hallway has looked the same since they moved in over 20 years ago. Throughout the years it’s been repainted, but it’s always stayed very neutral. That is all going to change!
For this design I actually started with lighting.Hudson Valley Lighting Group is one of the official sponsors and it was hard to pick out just a couple of pieces to use. Everything they make is so beautiful and glam, but also totally classic and will stand the test of time. For the main hallway I’m going to be swapping that outdated piece with one of their semi-flush mounts called Allure.
It’s already been installed and I love it! It gives off so much light and reminds me of a Chanel flower.
Stay tuned for the other lighting piece arriving! It’s insanely good!
A hallway is a great place for a gallery wall. My parents currently have family photos of the wall, but since I wanted to add some color and we are lucky enough to have Minted as another sponsor! I got to play around with all of their beautiful art work pieces. I use them a lot in my home and with clients and I love the quality. Their framing is perfection!
DESIGNER TIP: TAKE SCREEN SHOTS OF THE ART PIECES YOU ARE CONSIDERING AND MOCK THEM UP IN PHOTOSHOP, PICMONKEY, CANVA, ETC AND PLAY AROUND WITH SCALE AND LAYOUT TO SEE WHAT YOU LIKE BEFORE ORDERING.
MINTED ARTWORK SELECTION:
I decided to go even bolder and see what the artwork looked like on a wallpapered wall. I reached out to my friends at Milton and King and told them all about my vision and they were happy to partner up and donate the paper for this project! Of course I fell in love with two papers!
Which would you choose?
