Jewel Marlowe- Fall 2019 One Room Challenge Week 1 – Statement making lighting, moulding, and paint updates.
I have to admit something. I’ve been keeping a secret from you…and it’s not a little secret. In fact, it is a HUGE doozy of a secret! I’m so excited to FINALLY get to share my new statement making lighting, and new paint and moulding updates.
Did you miss the before pics and plan from last week? No sweat! I’ve got you covered

Statement Making Lighting
Keeping this statement making lighting a surprise has been a hard burden to bear. So, without further adieu, I’d like to introduce you to my new living room chandy…Make sure that you are sitting down…
I KNOW, RIGHT?!? This Hudson Valley Lighting Group chandelier is honestly the prettiest statement making lighting I have ever seen! No hyperbole! I’m dying! Ok…that part was hyperbole.
This three-tiered lovely is the largest member of the Tyrell line, and also coordinates with four other similar fixtures. It is definitely worth checking out this collection!
PIN ME FOR LATER!
This statement making lighting is 31 x 49 inches and looks amazing with my 13.5 ft ceilings. I love how each of the 81 glossy glass tubes looks like the inside was hand dipped in white wax. This detail gives it the a’perfectly imperfect” look that I love about the Tyrell. Our living room use to feel so dim, but is now comfortable at night, thanks to its 16 light bulbs.
It’s the quintessential glam element that I dreamed of for this space, and it looks like it was custom made to nestle between my two arched windows. Wouldn’t you agree?
We love the Hudson Valley Lighting Group. In fact your will HVLG fixtures in our living room, entryway, teenage girl’s bedroom, upholstered bunk bedroom, and master bedroom.
If you have been following along in my INSTAGRAM stories then you know that I have STRUGGLED to find the right paint color….There are so many elements to consider in this space (one really light living room, and one really dark kitchen, a purplish-blue mural, adjacent greenish dining room, a blue terrazzo sofa in the sunroom, etc). In most aspects of my life I am NOT a control freak….paint colors being the major exception…apparently.
Yesterday afternoon I brought home this color (custom mixed and color matched by Behr Paint) and literally slapped it on the wall just in time to snap a few photos before it got dark. It was literally still drying here. What do you think my friends? Picture it with a powder blue wool sofa, green curtains, and black and white accents.
Look at this Inspo pic of Tory Burch’s living room. Those greens with the robin’s egg blue has always made my heart sing. That yellow toned green is what I would hope to emulate with help from Spoonflower and their custom curtain line. More on those options this week in my INSTAGRAM stories.

That chandelier is GORGEOUS! I love how it looks against the pale blue walls. Can’t wait to see what you choose for curtains 🙂
I’m really excited about the curtains as well
Ohhh my hi hi!!! This is lookin’ pretty fabulous Jewel! So glad you went with the French blue. It’s look fantastic!
Oh my goodness, Jewel, your designs are my favorite!! And I still can’t believe how much you are tackling… You are my home design hero. ?
Thanks so much Ola!!! You rock!
Thanks so much Kristen! You are so sweet!
This is so perfect. The slant of the ceilings, the blue walls, the white of the chandelier…so good!
Thanks so much Ashley! I feel like my blue is close, but not quite perfect. I may end up repainting parts before it is all said and done.
