Style 2 in the One Room, Three Ways challenge gave me quite a workout.

Every single thing was moved, changed or updated – except the armoire (I didn’t feel like budging that heavy beast).

Sure beats going to the gym.

Here’s what I did to completely transform my living room:

1) Moved demijohn collection that was in front of window onto mantel and chose one painting from my landscape gallery wall

2) Vintage WWII trunk that my mom-in-law’s neighbor gave her years ago is now my coffee table

3) Removed the fireplace screen – it’s summer after all!

4) Layered cowhide rug from my foyer over existing rug

5) Added a few big glass fishing buoys to the hearth

  1. I love this arangement! Esp. your collections of the bottles, the croquet mallets and the cowhide!!! It is a very comfortable room this way. Looking forward to your third version, although I think you can keep it like this. šŸ˜‰
    Jule

  2. Oh, Kelly, I love this version, too. I think I may like it better than the first one. Whew, I guess you do need a nap.

  3. Wow – that looks like a lot of work! But I must say I love your mantel this way better – the room seems more soothing this way – great job! Can’t wait to see what you do with it next – this series is inspiring me to make some changes here – just wish I had some great collections of stuff!

  4. Love this look too, Kelly! The demijohns and those glass bouy floats (I’ve never seen them that big)! And I absolutely love your apple pillow!!! Wonderful space!!~~Angela

  5. Love the fresh look Kelly. Makes me want to put my green bottles on the mantel. Time for a change and this may be what I will do.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. I am well aware of how inappropriate it is to say I like your glass balls but your awesome glass jugs on the mantel didn’t sound any better.

  7. Wow, this one is beautiful too!! I love your amazing glass collection… Incredible!! What a fabulous room you have to work with as well! This challenge is right up my alley – I’m so excited to see the next one!

  8. How fun! Love all the touches of summer added to your room today. Croquet, fishing, coral, fruit, family…all just wonderful!

  9. That glass collection is amazing! Love all the details and the cow hide rug! This is so much fun and so happy to be partying with you!

    Have a great day rock star!

  10. Great Home!! Am I mistaken or is your sofa table a vintage wallpaper table?? I’m thinking now that my Dads’ needs to come live with me!! Thank you for all the incredible ideas and the thought you have put into this!! I am inspired!!

  11. This is really pretty. I especially like the new mantel decor – looks very refreshing for summer!

  12. If this was MY living room–which, regretfully, it is NOT–I would keep it this way, after you do your next switch! The question is, of course, does it work for your family? If so, remember this plan! I love your blog. have been reading it since it’s inception…..first time I’ve posted, because I was feeling brave!

  13. Kelly I love your room this way!! The furniture placement, mantle with the bottles, and summery accessories all look so great!

  14. I must confess, I totally COVET your glass collections! Another great room, can’t wait until tomorrow!

  15. Love this mantel design, and the placement of the furniture….hope it works for you to keep this way. The family picture wall looks more classis and calming than the other arrangement. (also love the collection of green ware in your foyer) judging by these two rooms, you have a lovely home.

  16. I like the blue chairs in todays room better (without the white fur on them). And your glass collection is stunning. Where do find them all? Also for your pictures, did you just line up the existing holes from the previous pictures or are you using hanging strips? I’ve thought about using something like Command strips for pictures because I’m always changing where I want pictures to go but I don’t want to patch the walls all the time!

    1. I found my glass all over – estate sales, flea markets and ebay! I didn’t use the existing holes – I made new ones! I know, I know – I should have used command strips – but I’m going to be keeping the wall like this for awhile so nails it was. The new pics covered the old holes so nobody will even notice (hopefully)!

  17. Well done! I see that the general consensus puts One Room, 2nd Way in the favourite position…I’ve looked back twice at #1, and I’m leaning towards the room arrangement of your first look. Can’t wait ’til tomorrow…It’s all for fun, but thanks for letting us pretend we can influence you. šŸ™‚

  18. Ok, looks like like a pattern here…where did you get the fishing floats, trophies & vintage croquet set? eBay? Guess I should sign up to follow your blog…your stuff is too cool for me to ignore. šŸ™‚ love the way the sofa silhouette shows against the wall color and French doors. Really shows off its lines and fabric.

    1. I found the big fishing buoys at Brimfield antique show, the trophies were being sold by another blogger so I scooped them up and the croquet set at an estate sale for $10! I’d love you to follow along – I’m always finding new (or should I say old) things!

  19. I don’t know which room I love better Kelly!!!! Love all the sea glass on this one and that apple pillow is such a darling! I can’t wait to see what your living room will look like next!

  20. Daaaang, girl … you don’t mess around! I absolutely LOVE this arrangement! The layered cowhide … the simplistic yet powerful *mantelscape* showcasing your amazing demijohn collection … the glass buoys (I’ve wanted to start a collection for quite awhile …) and the overall sophisticated feel of this room!

  21. I think I just swooned a little. Too many awesome things to list, but I’d do just about anything to own that stunning wallpapering table! YUM! Being from St. Louis (look at my blog name . . . Hell-OOO!), the box with the hand-printed St. Louis address is just about the coolest thing, ever! Excuse me while I pin a few images!

  22. Wow! I think I like it even more the 2nd way!! Just reading this post wore me out. Love the cow hide rug in here too. Definitely more eclectic now!

  23. I love all of your collections Kelly. I think I saw “the” green bowl in there šŸ™‚ I’m in love with that green chair. I just love color. I need to get a colored glass collection going. Thanks for the inspiration.
