Just a few stitches, a couple of crying fits, and more than a lot of splinters to get us to where we are today, but I am beyond excited to FINALLY reveal our attic space for this season’s One Room Challenge! We have lots of people to thank; Linda Weinstein, our wonderful sponsors, Better Homes & Gardens (The official ORC media sponsor), my parents for babysitting for wayyy too many hours and days, and last but certainly not least, I have to thank my better half, Mr. Billy E. Pearce. Billy, I just don’t know how you do it. This guy works crazy hours at his regular job, and then works into the wee hours of the morning to build these spaces and make my dreams come true. He’s superhuman in all the ways, and I am forever grateful to have his talents and selflessness on my side for this crazy ride called life.
Welp! Let’s head up to the attic! I have so many things to point out to you today, and so many amazing products and companies. First, I’d like to start with the bathroom. We were psyched to use Build.com’s Signature Hardware products and we have them in every nook and cranny of the bathroom space. We also used Sherwin Williams Pure White paint throughout the entire attic, on both the ceilings and the walls.
Looking in through the antique glass doors, you’ll see Signature Hardware’s Brenham Acrylic Clawfoot tub, with Signature Hardware’s Mounted Tub Filler Faucet placed directly behind. Above the tub is Hudson Valley Lighting Group’s Lotus Chandelier, which makes such an awesome statement to let you know this bathroom is for the bold right upon entering. The vintage marble grapes styled on the tub are from one of my favorite vintage shops, Curated Home Decor.
Dressing both windows in the bathroom is Milton & King’s Candy Stripe fabric. I am extremely lucky to have New York’s best upholsterer in my family (truly! He is a trusted upholsterer to many celebrities and high-end designers). Naturally, I had Uncle Robert Boccard make these stunning Roman shades for the space using the Milton & King fabric.
To the right of the tub is a dormer that hosts the bathroom sink, made from vintage library card catalogs and Signature Hardware’s Springs Oval Marble Vessel Sink. Mounted above the marble sink is Signature Hardware’s Rotunda Wall Mounted Bathroom Faucet in Matte Black. I was very drawn to bold geometric shapes for this project and loved the idea of a hexagonal mirror. We were psyched to place this Kate and Lauren McNeer Hexagon Metal Mirror from Overstock.com in this spot, and we love how it fits in with the Centric Wall Sconces from Blueprint Lighting NYC. The handmade black vase seen next to the sink is from one of my all-time favorite ceramicists, Cieri Fabrication.
On the opposite side of the sink, we placed the Safavieh Hollis Clear Console Table from Overstock.com to host some of my favorite vintage finds, including this fun ceramic vase from my girl Tatiana Gaydish. Check out her Chairish shop here.
The tile for the entire bathroom project was provided by The Tile Shop, and I could not possibly have better things to say about their selections, the quality of their products, and the people behind the brand. We worked with the Color Market line for the black and white herringbone (Cosmos Color Market, and Santorini Color Market, respectively). On the floor we used The Tile Shop’s Artisan Tiare Porcelain tile.
The last view of the bathroom is of the dormer that contains the walk-in shower. The Kohler Revel Frameless Shower Doors were sponsored by Build.com and provide a seamless entry into the shower space. Build.com also provided the Signature Hardware Lowden Rain Shower Head, the Lowden Multifunction Hand Shower, and the Hibiscus Dual Function Pressure Valve. Oh! And let’s not forget the Signature Hardware potty, which was also provided by our friends over at Build.com.
The shower is also styled with the Chandler stool from APT2B and a vase from Effortless Composition. Seen above are the Modern Brass Double Hook with Rosette and the Modern Brass Paper Holder from Emtek.
Before we head out of the bathroom portion of the attic space I would like to draw your attention to Legrand’s gorgeous outlet. We used their Adorne line throughout the entire attic space for both the switches and the outlets and I have never been so in love with outlets and switches in my life. They are the kind you actually want to show off, rather than hide.
Now if we head on out through those glass doors again, we can check out all the fun stuff in our Guest/Office portion of the attic space. We teamed up with L.J. Smith Stair Systems to create our dream railing. I love how it is modern and visually unobtrusive to allow the eye to see right through it. It’s incredible how much larger the space feels with it!
You can also appreciate the LIFECORE floors from this view, a topic covered in detail in my Week 7 blog. We are loving this Adela Oak finish! We used LIFECORE flooring throughout the entirety of the Office/Guest portion of our attic renovation and I could not possibly have better things to say about these floors. Please check out that blog if you haven’t already.
In the third dormer of the attic space we placed the Briar Sleeper Sofa from Joybird, the Caulder Coffee Table from APT2B, the Bardot Floor Lamp in French Smoke from APT2B, and I used Terra Cotta fabric from Fabricut’s TREND line to reupholster these chairs from Anthropologie. The gorgeous pillows adorning the sofa are from one of my favorite pillow shops, SWD Studio.
Inside this dormered area you can also find Hudson Valley Lighting’s Accord Picture Light hung above our Frame TV, which showcases my friend, Jan Skácelík’s, artwork. A second Accord Picture Light can be found on the staircase, adorning a vintage Surrealist work by Antonio Guanse.
Just outside the dormered area you will find APT2B’s Credenza by Three of the Possessed by DAZZLE APARTMENT, which is adorned with some of my favorite vintage finds and my friend, Bari J.’s new book, “bloom wild.” It also hosts the fun geometric Glenn Table Lamp by APT2B.
Across the way from the credenza is the Midtown Desk by APT2B that is paired with Noho CO.’s new MOVE chair, which is made of entirely recycled plastics (mostly from fishing nets cleaned from the ocean’s floors and recycled carpet parts).
We are also absolutely loving the Ehren rug by Loloi that is styled under the desk in this Office portion of our attic. The geometric pattern of the Ehren rug is so fun, but the rug is also stunningly crafted and is super soft underfoot.
Atop the desk one can find many vintage scores, but also this incredible handmade ceramic bowl from Jill Rosenwald. It is titled, “Very Stable Genius” – and is a one-of-a-kind piece from her collection. Be sure to shop her dazzling pieces here.
The tour will end with the way OUT of the attic, because DAMN this girl right here needs a nap! We were incredibly lucky to have Spoonflower send this wonderful Deep Underground woven wallpaper to style the stairway to our Spring 2020 One Room Challenge, and to team up with Overstock for this The Curated Nomad San Bruno Flatweave Jute stair runner. The piece at the top of the stairs is a handmade wool piece by my friend Dru Hilty at The Color Co.
Thank you SO SO SO much for following along on this eight-week-long journey (that really began at the end of February). A big thanks again to the big, BIG team that helped me bring my dreams to fruition. This certainly was NOT a solo act by Kate Pearce by any stretch of the imagination.
