Statement Piece

Project Wicker // The Library

I’m a little bit excited about this project, y’all. And maybe a tad jealous of the new spaces we are creating. This busy family of six is very cool and super stylish, but their one-dimensional Athens Five Points cottage just was not reflecting their personal style. It wasn’t reading true to their esthetic, and it needed a statement piece.  Jade O’Connor Designs to the rescue!  #BOOM!  Custom reclaimed wood wall.  Done and done.

So when they called me and said, “Hey, Kid, renovate this,” I was like “With pleasure, my Dears!”  Dad, Mom, three little girls and a toddler boy fill this home with laughter and love while their chic parents play piano, write books, and successfully navigate their own careers. It’s a beautiful artistic crew of well-spoken, well-mannered peeps. And now their home will reflect that.

We started with a little forgotten room off the family room. A small space we dubbed, “The Library,” which is really the TV room, which is really the man cave. We painted it a gorgeous navy, and by drawing inspiration from a past project we completed this summer, Project Polo Club, the Sons of Sawdust installed a reclaimed wall as the main design element in this newly transformed room.

Next we’re filling the space with great pieces including a vintage inspired leather sofa, a modern media cabinet and a whole mix of lovely randomness. You know how we love a mix!  We will hang color close-ups of the cute kids in the space and add in additional seating, a woven rug, some cool patterned poufs and “Voila!” It will be magic. Okay, maybe not magic, but it will become a pretty awesome room.

BONUS: Let’s check out Project Wicker’s new striped hallways! This boring, sad, dark, little hall needed LIFE! So we striped her, and now she’s a beauty. Our next project is creating an art gallery of the children’s artwork and family photographs. We’re mixing mediums and textures with the art and playing with frame sizes. We have a plan, but we’re going to add in some surprise finds to make it extra special. More updates coming soon!  Stay tuned…

To say we love houseplants over here at JOD would be an understatement. Look how easily you can mix and match different pots and plants so easily! What an easy way to freshen up any space. My Attic blogger shares her... read more
