One Room Challenge Week 3 | Breakfast Nook | Spring 2016

Here it goes, the update on my second space for the ORC! You can view my first space, the baby nursery, updated here. Slowly but surely with this one. I've still got a long list of to-do's, but as you can see above the STUNNING Vanderbilt pillows from one of my favorite designer pillow Etsy shops, MotifPillows have arrived! Ugh, if only you could touch the screen and feel the velvety texture. And isn't the Dove colorway  perfect with the table? I die.

Boy is that large white wall screaming for some art. That's a huge decision I haven't fully made yet, turns out the beach print I previously placed on my mood board just won't quite be big enough for the space alone. It's either I go one huge print for max impact, and have the art MAKE the room, or I do a set of prints in series. Here's some inspiration for both options, I've got to hurry up and decide within the next couple of days or it likely won't come in time:

Other than that I also decided to place the chairs on a diagonal in the room to have it appear more spacious, here's a quick and dirty sketch to show you what I mean. Last week I had them placed squared to the walls which made passing through toward the pantry tight and awkward:

But now that they are on a diagonal the walking-through space is substantially better!

It's kind of more attractive looking too, which is an added bonus. Here's my to-do's from last week with an update on where I am at:
  1. Order and frame all artwork (2-4 pieces total)
  2. Order faux white leather (awaiting it's arrival) and foam
  3. Re-upholster chairs
  4. Buy place mats and a centerpiece
  5. Order the accent pillows for the chairs
  6. DIY frost screens for the French doors for privacy
Not a ton accomplished this week, but hopefully that will kick my butt into high-gear for week 4! I have to admit I'm kinda thriving off of this pressure :)

Hop over to Calling It Home blog to see all the other participants and their fabulous ORC spaces!

Cannot believe you are tackling two spaces! That table is gorgeous!!

The tabletop is very pretty. I like the washed look of the wood. Can't wait to see which art you do choose. Sometimes I think that's the hardest part of a room.

We'd love for you to link up this post with us at Thoughts of Home on Thursday. Our readers would enjoy seeing your progress.

It's so pretty! The art is such a delimah, but only in having to choose which great idea works best. Can't wait to see more!

Hi Nancy, LOVE your blog! Hope that it is okay to express an opinion about the chair finish at this stage. I think you need to revisit the idea of painting your chairs now that the cerised table has been chosen. The table is gorgeous and so are the chairs but I would definitely go with glossy white or black chairs, depending on your art. For the art, have you looked at Gray Malin's work? I have one of his large pieces on a big wall at my beach house and I cannot tell you how much I love it. He often has his work on One Kings Lane. He and his office are delightful to work with.

I will be so eager to see what you decide!!
