As a refresher, here was my conceptual rendering for the space:
My inspiration was simple--I knew I wanted to go with a look that would be extremely bold for the size of the space (my motto for a show house? Go BIG!) yet still feel sophisticated and modern (read: dark & moody with clean lines). Essentially, I wanted it to be me but times 1,000 (lol). With respect to my concept, the finished space hit the nail on the head with what I wanted/hoped to see and am SO happy how the space turned out. The bold color was much more chartreuse than yellow (daggone pics!), but I love the way the images capture the look and feel of the overall space.
Here's a look at the back hallway/entry to the upstairs apartment BEFORE I created my magic:
Talk about visual drama.
It's been almost a year since the 2013 Cathedral Antiques Inspiration House debuted and as I look back, I still don't think there's too much I would do differently given the same resources (and that's saying a lot from me, someone who ALWAYS leaves a job thinking about where I can improve)--I loved this space!

So now that you've seen the big reveal I have to ask...was it all you imagined??
