My best of the nest for May is my One Room Challenge room, which I call "the keep." Like the keeping rooms of olde, this sitting area is directly off of my kitchen.  

For today's party, I want to show you how the room looks a few weeks post-reveal.

The bar'moire was a big hit! The fern was part of my original design plan but I didn't find one in time for the reveal. This one is HUGE! I love the way it brings the outdoors in and makes the space feel more like a garden room.

The bar'moire from the side. I hope to be able to keep this fern alive! I tried to buy one that could handle poor treatment...

I was also waiting on this set of Barzina lattice planters from Zinc Door. It was part of my Polyvore Project Decorate contest winnings. I moved the (silk) orchid up here too. It adds some height, color, and interest to the space I think.

The wall above the sofa got the beginnings of a paper treatment. I bought this marbled paper from Minted. One set equals five sheets. I probably need more, and I probably need wallpaper glue. But I like the way the swirls play off of each other and I love the pink and orange colors.

The gooseneck lamp mimics the marble whorls. 

And this is how I was done with a project and then complicated it into undoing...  :)


  1. Carrie, I love your pretty accessories, and the texture and fresh green of the fern is perfect in there, so pretty for summer! That marbled paper...I'm dying!! Thanks for sharing at the party!

  2. I like the arrangement on top of the armoire, and "The gooseneck lamp mimics the marble whorls" says it all without actually saying it. It's like poetry! :)

    I was interested to read about the Happiness Project from one of the other bloggers. It's right up my alley.

  3. What a pretty space! I'm sure that will be such a useful piece. There's not much I like better than a giant fern. Thanks for linking up with us at Best of the Nest!


Thanks so much for commenting! I love to read what you have to say. ~Carrie
