One Room Challenge: Week Two

If you missed my first post you can click here
 Now let's start week two off on a positive note!
Here's what was accomplished in my client's eating area.
(drum roll please)
We have NAVY walls people!
 Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy that is -- check her out.

But don't forget the before pictures.
This was the old family room which is now becoming a new eating area attached to the newly renovated kitchen.

The wall pictured above and below with the TV/console -- gonzo. It's now an opening to the new family room.

Now here is the after

We are still in the construction phase here so please excuse random objects in the pictures.


In this picture you can see the new opening to the kitchen to the right

Below is where you can see the new opening to the family room. The original wall had a TV and console on it.

By the way this paint color is stunning in person my pictures don't do it justice.

All of the kitchen furniture has been moved into the new eating area. We kept a cozy table and chairs to relax in by the fire and read or do homework. Eventually we may replace this with four chairs and a small coffee table but for now we are using what we have!
 The ceiling fan will be moved and replaced with this light fixture
Morris Lantern

I mean look this at this beauty!

I light it like that:)
and the reddish burgundy chairs will be replaced with navy and white striped wing chairs that will be similar to this....
Furbish chairs
Minus the red piping and white painted legs.
Now don't think I wasn't contemplating the contrast piping in raspberry but I thought better not just in case my client wants to change the accent color a few years down the road:)
 So, what's happening with the window treatments?
Not sure if we're going with panels in this John Robshaw fabric
Or just a simple white linen fabric with a pretty navy trim.
You'll have to wait and see!!

Now the not so great news... the back splash came in the wrong color and the glass kitchen doors? Well, they were delivered in the wrong style. The bar stools and lighting fixture are on back order until November... oh well! so much for six weeks! But that's the design process for you:)

So here's a sneak peek of the kitchen cabinetry going in!

One wall of cabinets finished

 you'll have to wait until next week to see the kitchen come together.
