Six weeks ago, I joined a group of bloggers with the challenge of finally tackling that one room you’ve been meaning to decorate. The rules were simple, we had six weeks to complete our space and every week we would blog about our progress. If you’re new to this series, start at Week One to follow along from the beginning.
For a quick overview, I decided to use the word ‘room’ a bit loosely in choosing my space. I decided on our stairwell, which was at the time boring and beige. As a renter, my goal was make a big visual impact without committing a ton of resources to the project.
Over the past six weeks I painted, replaced the existing track lighting with an amazing vintage chandelier, sourced new art, and hung a gallery wall. Now it’s judgement time. Here’s what the space looks like today!
A gallery wall runs diagonally up the stairs. As you can see, I still need a few more pieces to fill it out but I’ve decided to let it evolve organically rather than rush to fill the space.

A few of my favorite pieces in the gallery wall: a chair by Anne Harwell and a vintage Vogue cover.
Just to show how far we’ve come, here’s what the space looked like at week one! Yikes!
Special thanks to Linda for organizing this challenge and inviting me to participate. I hope you’ve enjoyed following along!
