ONE ROOM CHALLENGE – THE REVEAL!!!

cassandra lavalle dining room for the one room challenge coco kelley_1

Well, I suppose that compared to a few of my fellow designers, my reveal is not AS huge – we’ve been showing you quite a bit behind the scenes (maybe next time I need to be more of a tease?), but let me tell you this: a little styling goes a long way in transforming and finishing […]

    Beautiful room. I think you achieved your “polished global” style and more! Love how simple and uncluttered it is yet there is a definite curated feel to the accessories. Great job and looking forward to seeing more of your changes to this place!

    What a transformation! I love that shade of blue you picked and it works so well with the wood tone now! can’t believe these are the same dining table and bench … the new chairs and chandelier totally revamped the way they look and feel! That pop of green from the fiddle leaf is perfect against the blue! LOVE!!

    I love this! It’s a wonderful fusion of both your styles that created a very cohesive look. The chairs, wall color, chandelier – everything – it’s all fantastic!! Great job!

    You pulled off “polished global” to a T! It looks fabulous even without the rug (although I’m looking forward to seeing the rug in place as well). I love the art gallery you pulled together from both of your collections – it’s eclectic but also very streamlined. Great work compromising between the masculine and feminine. I also love that table runner – is it simply fabric you draped or is it an actual runner? More importantly, where did you get it?! Can’t wait to see what you do with the rest of the house!

    Beautiful!! That rich color on the walls is such a gorgeous background for everything! Love the texture of your chairs, the fab chandelier and your spot on styling! I was thinking I should have shown more instead of being such a tease, LOL!

    Amazing!! I’m loving the polished global look. That wall color is outstanding and is perfect with all of the other choices. Something somewhere in my life is getting painted Prussian Cadet. I can’t wait to see what you do in the living room; from this little glimpse, all the buttery coral seems so warm against the cool, moody dining room.

    Ooooo – LOVE the outcome – so fabulous! I was for the wood dining table from the start, but glad you got some marble into the room. Love the wall color, too.

    I think it looks great and manages to be both stylish and very Seattle (polished, earthy). You mentioned early on that your boyfriend was attached to a gallery wall of family photos. Where did you move those? Are you planning on incorporating a few family pics elsewhere?

    1. Cassandra LaValle Post author

      Hey Carrie, thank you! We’re going to move the gallery wall of family photos to the hallway that leads to our bedrooms – I’m SURE that will be a whole other post! I have a feeling we may add some family images to other areas as well as we start to design – I would like to have a few in the living room area!

    I looooove the table runner. Would you be willing to let us know where you found that? 😉 What a beautiful room – I’m in the process of figuring out what to do with my SUPER BORING dining room.

    I’ve been hunting for a similar table to go with these exact chairs. Can you tell me where the table is from? I love the combination with the chairs!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE :: WEEK 5!

I cannot believe we’re in the last week of the One Room Challenge! So I guess this means that in one week this room will be completely DONE? Well… that we will see about. I literally finally pulled the trigger on a rug yesterday and I’m already having second thoughts. I may have to purchase a back-up […]

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: WHITE + WORLDLY

hannah_blackmore_photography_adorehomemagazine_interior_photography_wedding_nest_1321

You know how I love me some fresh white walls, warm, natural materials, and a curated, global vibe… So you know that I loved this room from the second I saw it! It’s a great example of mixing woods and wovens in different textures, and also a great layout for an open floor plan or […]

    Hi, Cassandra, love your blog! It is always the first one I check everyday. You mentioned in your post that this particular room reminded you of your loft space. I was thinking that in your current dining room (which you are redecorating) that you could get inspiration from this space as well. You said in an earlier post that you weren’t sure if you will keep the wood table or switch it out for the marble-topped one.I instantly thought that you could paint your wood table’s legs white like the one in the photo to lighten up the space a bit.

      Nice idea Michelle! I hadn’t thought of that, and I’m not sure my boyfriend would go for it since it’s his table… but worth being an option! We’ve also discussed putting a marble top on the current table, but the problem is that he really loves the texture of the top, so that’s out. I’d almost rather take the top of his and put it on an industrial base that’s powdercoated white. Could be a cool mix!

ONE ROOM CHALLENGE :: WEEK 3!

There’s always that lull when designing a room that’s the ‘sit and wait’ period. And my friends, we have entered it. In the past few weeks orders have been placed, and now I’m just waiting for everything to arrive! The roman shades, the chandelier, the new console (marble!) and some other surprises… west elm chandelier […]

    I’m SO in love with your art choice & I’ve always been obsessed with those SL stools. I’m a huge fan of dash & albert rugs, when I’ve used the diamond pattern it almost has a sheen to it which I think is so pretty, since you have stripes on the chairs I love the idea of the graphic diamond pattern! The space is coming together beautifully!

    I own rug #2 in the smallest size, and use it as a bathmat. I love it for how I use it, but don’t think that you’ll like the thickness of the yarns in a dining room. It just feels REALLY casual, and I imagine scooting chairs across it would be a pain. I would advise against this choice, even though I do like the product.

    Hi there!

    I am not against getting a deep clean on the original rug you had. The rich pink with the sea blue would be a beautiful, unexpected combination. Give it less of a nautical feel.
    My sister has a dining room with that exact look and it is stunning. May have to send pics your way for inspiration!

    I have used the D&A rugs many times….the other commenter is right that they are thick and do tend to stretch and wrinkle. If you do get one make sure to get a really good pad. I am partial to the OKL rug but then I did not hate your original one!

    Love the ‘coming soon’ mood board! It all works beautifully together! ANd though all the options you put up for the rug are great, we think number 4 would look beautiful with your design!

    I followed your link for the Serena & Lily stools. Were they actually $800.00 each? I did not see a sale nor pink.

    I love how things are turning out – and I’m so glad you managed to sneak in a little marble! I think the art is a beautiful piece. The pink touches really soften the room and those stools will really bring out the color and soften the room up even more. The framing of the art really makes it the focal point though – I’m so glad you went with a beautiful wood rather than a standard black! As for the rug, I initially thought #4 would work best, but the more I think about it, the more I’m kind of leaning towards #3, surprisingly. It’s simple, neutral, but still offers a little more, I don’t know…oomph without taking away from anything else. Add a few quirky accessories and some greenery and the room could go a cool boho glam. Looking forward to next week’s updates!

ROOM OF THE WEEK :: 4.9

Today the sun is shining like it’s spring, and in honor of that little fact, this week my favorite room is an outdoor patio space full of insanely gorgeous texture. This ‘room’ belongs to Annemette Beck, an amazing textile designer (hence the gorgeous wall hanging). She is one of the few artists and designers commissioned by the […]
