For those of you who have been around A Thoughtful Place for a while you know that I started a new series called Just Four Things. The idea is to take a space and with the addition of just four things, really give a home owner the jump start they need to love their space and further their own inspiration. While I am totally and completely excited to show you the reveal today, I am also sad to see the project come to an end. Melissa and I had the best time working together and seeing which way you, the readers, voted each week for Which One Wednesdays. So without further ado, here is Melissa’s new space. I just love this peek into Melissa’s beautiful kitchen. Don’t you! Here is a quick rundown of the sources: mirror: Z Gallerie buffet lamp: Pottery Barn chalkboard frame: DIY project custom drapes: Martha & Ash Chandlier: Jonathan Adler Do you remember she started here. I wanted to make sense of the window above the buffet and unify that wall. Using a large DIY chalkboard connected the window to the buffet and accomplished that. The classic lamp is a choice that will never go out of style and the rest of the buffet is now free to style for the seasons or setup while hosting. ……………………….. before …………………………after You all voted for the mirror, chandelier, window treatments, and buffet accessories! Great choices as Melissa and I agreed with every single one. What makes me so thrilled is that Melissa and her sweet family are loving the space and have especially gravitated towards the new chalkboard. It’s a place for them to write special messages and share moments together as a family. She has been able to add even more touches to make the room their own. ……………………..test with paint When it came to deciding on the drapes, Melissa was convinced stripes were the way to go but had trouble deciding between two color choices from Martha & Ash. So I had her color match the swatches she was sent with some sample paints. She was then able to paint larger pieces of paper and really see what the drapes would look like. This is a cheap and simple way to test out an idea before making a large purchase. I hope you enjoyed the first installment of Just Four Things! I will be back next Wednesday to introduce a new space that we will be transforming with a few simple additions. Getting some organizing done around here . . . will share soon. Are you cleaning up the clutter?
