Makeover with FROGTAPE via Simply Grove


FrogTape Challenge Kickoff: My Living Room Goes Dramatic!


This project is in partnership with FrogTape®.

I am so happy to be competing in the FrogTape Paintover Challenge® this year! I will be competing against some fantastic design bloggers and I have a feeling that the competition is going to be tough. The best part of the Paintover Challenge is that at the end of the blogger makeovers, you’ll be able to vote for your favorite project. Once the votes are in, FrogTape® will generously donate $10,000 to an organization of the winner’s choice! The organization that I’ve chosen is Dress For Success in Boise, a local organization exclusively for women who have begun to change their lives by undergoing some form of job training or skills development to re-enter the workforce. The organization is designed for women from domestic violence shelters, employment and development centers, incarceration programs, welfare and unemployment recipients, and other women’s programs. These referral agencies give women the skills they need to get an interview and do a job. Dress for Success simply provides them with a crucial ‘finishing touch’.They provide clothing as a symbol of our faith in every woman’s ability to success. Amazing, right?? If I won, I would be thrilled to give to Dress for Success. If I don’t win, I am also thrilled that another non profit will get $10,000.


I decided to give my living room a new look for this challenge. I liked the space before but I didn’t love it. I was tasked with incorporating a specific trend in my design and was thrilled when they gave me Fluid and Fashionable. This trend allows for your eyes to coast along the space without seeing a crisp defined transition with style or color. I am all about contrast in design and I needed a little bit more contrast in this space. It’s always seemed very blah to me. My goal was to use FrogTape® to help create a very dramatic look in this bright, white space. With the help of FrogTape® and a budget of $1000 that they gifted me, it’s time to create a moody, dramatic space. Below are a few items that I’ve chosen and used in my living room.

Taking on a space that I’ve already tackled a few times seems funny, but in all reality I just haven’t ever loved it! I believe that sometimes it takes a few months or years to really create what you “deep in your heart” love. In all honesty, I’ve already finished the space and I LOVE IT! I can’t wait to show.
