One Room Challenge || The Reveal - Mudroom

May 07, 2015



Finally!!!! Reveal day is here!!  It's exciting because I have something to show you but I had to make last minute adjustments because a few things did not come in on time.  For those of you who are new I am participating in  the One Room Challenge Linking Participants  where I am decorating my little mudroom.  You can see the before photos of the space here. It's small but I wanted to make it a very chic and simple space.

The One Room Challenge was started by Linda from Calling it Home some years ago where she lines up twenty very talented professional bloggers and designers to redo a room in just six weeks.  They share their progress every Wednesday (see my past family room project here and my lilac closet here).  And the Linking Participants (anyone can join!) report their progress on Thursdays.  And finally today is the big reveal day for everyone that is linking.  Here is my space-



I really love the black trim I added.  It really pops against the white walls.  We are all amazed at the difference a little black makes.  Even my 7 year-old thinks the transformation is amazing.  I painted the trim matte black with just plain spray paint after having primed it.  The trim is the same one I used in my closet (half and inch round with a flat backing). You can find it at Home Depot. Once I had it painted the carpenter came in to nail it to the wall.

The console table is one of my favorite things ever!  It was created by the super talented Liven Up Design team (you can see more on the table here) I bought the fabric, sent it to them along with dimensions on the table and they made that treasure!  It is beautifully made and is super chic.  I highly recommend working with Liven Up. They are great to work with and are seriously talented.  The box I ordered to hold receipts and keys did not arrive so I used my old faux malachite boxes I made a few years back which I adore.  The mirror is from West Elm and the bench is unequivocally from Target, but you all knew that.  I'm in love with the Moroccan wedding basket!!  So, so cool and perfect for shoes, backpacks.....anything kid related that needs to be contained.

The Fornasetti plates were an anniversary present from my parents and I just adore them.  I left space for a couple of extra plates, which would be a welcome gift for Christmas (hint, hint!).  The two paintings actually belong in my dining room.  Nicole from Sketch 42 painted them and I just love them but since the prints I ordered never arrived I had to improvise.  I actually really love how they look here, but they also look amazing in my dining room!

A huge thank you to Linda for organizing this popular and fun challenge that is truly inspiring.  There are so many great ideas that come out of this fabulous group that it is really exciting and an honor to be a part of.  And thank you to all you readers for your constant support.  Go check out the other Linking Participants to see their reveals!  I'm sure they are all spectacular.

  6. This is so gorgeous and sophisticated! I love the black against the walls. Did Home Depot miter the trim pieces for you or did your carpenter have to do that? LOVE every. single. thing! I'm the newest fan of Fornasetti.

  8. I knew this would be a stunner! Even aside from all the glamorous details, one of the things I love most about this space is how you positioned the artwork and wall accessories over the trim work. So many of us play it safe and limit ourselves to framing up our hangings or staying within the confines of the trim lines. I like that you didn't do that here. It's so visually interesting to see the matte black trimwork punctuated by the colorful artwork, gold mirror and wishbone hooks. Well done Albertina!

  41. The black trim is genius!!! So simple, yet so stylish. Perfect backdrop to the other pretty pieces, including that fabulous table. p.s. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a sweet comment! I couldn't believe it when I clicked over to your 'About' page and saw the photo of you on that amazing sofa…a pin I've been in love with and referred to many, many times as the dream sofa it is. So glad to finally connect with you!! Have a great week. :)

  42. Hi Albertina, wow the black trim on the wall is fantastic! I love how you mixed everything. Such a glam way to drop off your things. I can't call this a mudroom. It is way to pretty. Love the art, the console table, the basket.....it's all so lovely. Great job.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Albertina! It's petite but perfect. So sexy and sophisticated per usual! I think this is the inspiration I needed to finally spruce up our sad entry - so so good lady!

  44. I'm absolutely positive I've never seen a more chic mudroom. You have to have great style to pull of this level of minimal, and you've knocked it out of the park. Way to go, Albertina!!!

  47. What the hell....that is a mudroom? It is better than most rooms in my house:) When I looked at the first picture I thought the mirror was bi-fold?!?! I stared at it for 5 minutes and then had to just scroll down scratching my head. It was only after I saw it in another angle that I figured out it was a reflection!! Back to the room.....love every stinking element about this room.....killing it as usual.
