One Room Challenge - Our Atlanta Apartment Part I
Hello All! If you’re here for the first time, I’m Jana, an interior designer with an emerging lifestyle line of home décor, textiles, & lighting. I have a love for bright colors, bold prints, and designing spaces & home décor that help transport you to your dream destination.
My husband and I split our time between Atlanta & Ann Arbor, MI. We moved into our Atlanta apartment last winter and I’ve been practicing patience in thinking through how the spaces should look, function, & feel. We’ve made some progress and I’m using the One Room Challenge to bring the apartment to life in short order! If you are unfamiliar with ORC, it's a friendly event hosted by Linda of Calling it Home, where design enthusiasts make over a space in the course of 5 weeks and on the sixth week we share the reveals. This will be my third time participating, I completed my office & great room with adjoining breakfast nook in previous ORCs:
Let me show you the ‘befores’, the little updates we’ve made, & vision for our Atlanta apartment.
We have a one bedroom apartment, the dining/living area is an open concept so I want to create separate spaces that compliment each other & transition with ease.
Here is the living/dining room area:
Here is the bedroom:
Here is where the entry/dining area is now, inspired by Michelle's layout, that's our gorgeous new Saarinen style dining table from Rove Concepts:
Some inspiration for the nook was drawn from this confection by Summer Thorton:
The color palette is going to be lots of white with pops of my favorite colors - turquoise, coral, blush pink, & pops of citrine yellow, similar to the balance of hue in these spaces:
(PS - if you love palm beach living & hollywood regency glamour, you definitely want to follow The Glam Pad on pinterest, Andrea's pins are on point!)
Our living room is in great need of greenery, with my black thumb, I'm partnering with my friends at NDI for the perfect fit - I am FAUX real!
