Whew! Thank you so much for all of your kind words on my One Room Challenge Reveal! I am over the moon please with how the room turned out, and cannot believe I live here. Today, I am finally going to share all of the juicy details and sources for where I got everything! So many of you have been e-mailing and asking, and I’m so sorry for the delay. I had some blog issues for almost 2 weeks, but we are up and running like new now! So, let’s dive right in.
MOLDING + ARCHITECTURAL DETAILS
All of the molding and the bedroom door are from my favorite detail source, Metrie. They have the best options, and I had such a hard time choosing my favorites! For the walls, I knew I wanted to do a simple Parisian-style box molding to surround the fireplace and make it look completely intentional. The 1 1/8″ Panel Mould worked perfectly for our space.
For the bedroom door, I wanted to update it so that it matched its surroundings- the Fashion Forward Door was a no brainer.
One of my ideas to fix the “stepped” look of the built-ins was to make them look as consistent as possible, and as much like a proper built-in as possible. If you remember the before, you might remember how they stopped almost 2″ from the ceiling, and had no detail on the cabinet doors. Since the drop wasn’t low enough for a traditional crown molding, I had to think outside of the box a little bit. Thankfully, Metrie has so many options and I was able to use and cut this Panel Mould to look like crown so that they extended all the way to the ceiling. For continuity, I used the same Panel Mould on the cabinet bases as I used on the walls.
One of the biggest transformations in the room, in my opinion, is the mirror wall. I sketched out an idea in my head, not really knowing if it would work, according to a few different options that I found on Metrie’s site. And it turned out perfectly- exactly like I had envisioned in my head! I used 3 1/2″ Flat Stock to create the grid on the mirror, simply gluing it with mirror adhesive to the front of the mirror. I then used 9/16″ Cove Molding to trim out the rectangles created by the grid to give it a finished look. It’s such a big transformation that friends who have come 100 times before ask if the mirror has always been there!

Railings in Interior Eggshell on the built-ins (the most delicious blue/ black/ charcoal)
FURNITURE + LIGHTING + ACCESSORIES
I wanted a traditional mural paper to line the entryway wall to draw a separation in this very long space. The Shaded Landscape Mural from Anewall was exactly what I was looking for!
I talked about how I found the steal of a lifetime with this fireplace already, so all I had to do was accessorize around it! I wanted it to be the focal point of this space since it’s so bold, so the name of the game was texture, texture, texture.

What’s your favorite part of the room? Mine changes on a daily bases. I just love it all so much! The only problem is that this room makes the rest of my apartment look bad. Like, really bad. Time to get ready for the Spring One Room Challenge!
