One Room Challenge Update

Today the lovely Linda at Calling It Home is hosting the One Room Challenge Now, where participants of past One Room Challenges can show updates they've made to their rooms.

In the last One Room Challenge, I tackled my dining room-

You can see all of the photos here. 

Unfortunately, the painting I had commissioned by Linda Donohue to hang above the mantle wasn't done in time for the reveal. But by the end of November it had arrived!

I absolutely love the painting! The colors are fabulous and when the afternoon sun hits it, the painting glows...stunning! Linda was a pleasure to work with and she has new paintings in her Etsy shop ... I've got my eye on her Pink Abstract Seascape!
Now head on over to Calling It Home to take a peek at what everyone else has done!

As always, feel free to leave a comment or ask questions in the comments section below.

  1. This is such a beautiful room Elle, and that painting is gorgeous! Great job and it looks so welcoming and a wonderful place to dine and sit for a spell! xo Nancy

  2. Elle, that painting was worth the wait. I love the colors. I hope you will be joining in again in April?

  3. Your right about that painting, the green just makes the room all the more refreshing! I love your dining room before Elle, and love it still!

  4. Your color palette is so pretty. Everything looks fresh and airy.

  5. Pretty, pretty room--the painting adds life and vitality--but you did a grand job before its arrival.

  6. Your home is so elegant! The room looks stylish. Love the touch of blue.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)
