One Room Challenge - Fall 2019 - Week 5 of a Kitchen Remodel

Updated: Mar 4, 2021

Ready for another update on the One Room Challenge?  Can you believe that we’re 5 weeks into this challenge, and only one week from the Grand Reveal!!!

The One Room Challenge is a bi-annual event hosted by Calling it Home showcasing 20 featured participants and many guest participants as they renovate a single room, documenting all of it over the course of six weeks. The One Room Challenge kindly shares all of the blog entries and the finished spaces at the end of the 6 weeks.



We are almost done! So, this week is the final touch, backsplash, cabinet handles, pendant lights, appliances etc. Of course, you will have to wait until next week to see the reveal of the entire kitchen! This week I will give some touch of what you will see in week 6! Remember the mood board I created for the kitchen remodel? Gold, Calacatta, Bali's color....



Let's see what happened this week. My contractor installed the backsplash I selected: It is a stunning honed Calacatta gold marble stone with thin gold aluminium strip accents from GBI Tile & Stone Inc. It adds an extra spark of detail and enriches the kitchen! Impressive, isn't it?


Gold accents between each marble strip of this natural stone wall tile!

Here are some pictures of the installation of the tile! Marble can be fragile and I really insisted on having each little gold strip to be perfectly straight... It was not an easy ask but my professional tile contractor did a great job!
