The One Room Challenge Fall 2016 || WEEK FIVE

Wow, so hard to believe we are already on week five of the One Room Challenge hosted by Calling it Home! So, next week is the reveal....What??? Finally getting this posted after some technical difficulties today! The weeks just fly by when you are doing one of these challenges. Ok, so time to talk about where I'm at. The major pieces have all arrived. Thank you!!! It took 11 weeks for the sofa, ottoman, and chairs to be manufactured and delivered, but well worth the wait. I obviously got a head start by ordering those before the challenge. Here's a quick reminder of those key players.

It's kind of hard to see some of the beautiful textures in my quick phone pictures, so I thought I would share the fabric swatches for these pieces. I love looking at fabrics! There may be a slight addiction there, but not nearly as bad as my pillow problem.

Ok, so on to some of the new stuff...
The console arrived...Wahoo!!!!!!! I actually didn't think it would make it. When I ordered it five weeks ago they told me that it could be anywhere from 3-6, but they would send me the tracking info when it shipped from the manufacturer. Well, I didn't ever get the tracking info, so I figured it wasn't going to make it...until the delivery company called this week to schedule a time. What??? YAY!!!!!!!! Here it is...

I'm so in love with my birthday present. It's such a unique piece! A close up of the faux shagreen texture. I just love using lots of texture to add more interest to a neutral space.

Here is our sweet boy Baxter modeling the new rug! Yep! Finally decided on a rug and it actually came in time!!! Yay! we all love it and I think it's just the perfect amount of pattern for this space. Here are some other pictures. One with a couple cozy throws I picked up from HomeGoods. That store is the best! My husband says the faux fur looks like a dead animal, but I still like it!

Is it wrong to love the legs of my furniture so much?
It's finally coming together, but still so much to do. It's amazing how much it takes to pull a space together. Decison fatigue is real and second guessing may drive spouses crazy! I need to do some more accessory shopping and am hoping a few other small pieces make it in time. Please UPS and FedEx make a girl's One Room Challenge dream come true! I'll do another post on some of the end tables I ordered. I might have ordered one in the middle of the night, because when I can't sleep that's what's on my brain!
