Love it! Where did you get the room divider? Looking to do something similar.

What brand/color paint did you use for the aubergine walls? They are lovely!

fantastic! so well done! Even though there's heavy MCM influence, it's so damn cozy. The colors are perfection.

I have the same Lane coffee table! In fact, I inherited mine after seeing it at a friends in ill-repair. I told her I'd clean it up and give it a good home and now it's mine. My parents had the same one when i was a kid too! Love it. It'll never go out of style.

I think it looks beautiful and cozy! Can you share how you did the wall divider? I would love to do the same thing - what exactly is hanging?

Love it--perfection! And what is that sofa? Is it comfy? I'm in the market for a new one, and that looks like it could be just the ticket.

I love the wall with the bike against it -- so graphic, so cool. The night shot makes the colours look awesome, but I don't quite get what the pendant light illuminates...

Hi there! THAnks so much for all the awesome comments!! We are excited to be a part of the competition!
@Bagley818 & jcambell52 we actually got the idea here at apartment therapy! We made the 2nd sitting room into our master and wanted a creative idea for a door, here's the link to that post on AT

Thanks again for all the support!!!

@Lorien@, Ha thanks so much! Yeah the pendent light is def a bit awkward! We used to have a round table under the light. after some moving around we never got around to lifting it a little higher so it wouldn't hang so low. something we def want to get around to. :)

I like this one a lot, but would not say there is much color in the room, as least not in the photographed area. Looks like a neutral palette to me.
