One Room Challenge Kitchen Reveal


Yay! We’ve reached the end of the one room challenge and on the one hand, not a minute too soon…we move in to the house at the end of the week!

On the other hand, I truthfully could’ve used several more weeks…

There’s no doubt that living in this space will absolutely impact how I actually style this kitchen.

Not to mention that our furniture isn’t even in the space yet. 

I hope you’ll all come back and check out the lived in version of this kitchen when it’s finally and fully done (along with the progress on all the other rooms in our new home).


**update as of February 10–> Here’s the finished kitchen now!**

I’m super excited to reveal our almost completed new kitchen! Let’s review the befores:

For a more in depth look at the whole process, including the inspiration, check it all out here: week one, week two, week three, week four and week five.

Went over to the house on Saturday, with my styling assistant a.k.a my middle child. This is because I needed to pick her up from a sleep over the night before. Anyway we our best to style it up.

We’re not living here yet, so this is really just a “staged” attempt of what I’m hoping to really master once we’re in. 

We pulled a few blue and white objects from my own store and added it to some pieces I already owned (this large bowl, this vase, this box and a few vintage items).

I had every intention of shopping for some new pieces, but life, this move, Halloween and my oldest daughter’s birthday (today!) all took precedence.

However, I did manage to acquire one beautiful new piece, this ginger jar from The Pink Pagoda and it’s truly my new favorite thing (and I’m now addicted to her beautiful shop!)


The hidden built in spice racks on either side of the oven are one of my absolute favorite features in the room!

Obviously, once we move in, the room will look even more finished as we wait for the last few items to arrive.

I’ll be instagramming the progress here along with the rest of the new house, and I’ll continue to pin all the inspiration for this house here!

At some point I’m hoping to have the place professionally photographed as well…just couldn’t make it all happen today.

Anyway…I’m thrilled with the way this all turned out!

I love my new kitchen and can’t wait to get fully settled! I couldn’t have done this (and wouldn’t even have tried) without the amazing design help and direction of Muse Interiors~we call them team Laurens, as it was Lauren Muse and her unflappable assistant Lauren Weyant that kept things humming along!

    This is ridiculously enviable, Sue. I don't think I would ever leave that kitchen! (Except I have no doubt that the rest of your home will be equally elegant and stunning.) Love all of the brass (of course) against the white. That will never get old. Enjoy the fruits of your labor! Well done. ox
