One Room Challenge Week 5

This week was a fun week because everything started coming together. I did a little DIY project on the weekend, I took this adorable and inexpensive Ikea Dollhouse and used old scraps of wallpaper on the back! I just used tape on the back and it turned out super cute. So far its already gotten a lot of use in imaginary play, so I call it a win.

The pillow inserts for the floor pillows FINALLY arrived the day before the photoshoot, and I started putting all the art up on the wall and styling the closet.

Every time the styling was done, my kids would come and mess everything up in there. I think I've styled the room about 5 times already. ;-)

One Room Challenge Week 4

Week Four - Here we are ! 

Most of the items for this One Room Challenge have either been ordered or picked up, but I'm still anxiously waiting on a few things like the new crib sheets, some marigold yellow accessories, and the floor cushion inserts. I have the photoshoot scheduled for next Wednesday so technically I need it all done before then!

The gorgeous Rebecca Atwood wallpaper went up earlier this week and my goodness its beautiful! I also decided at the last minute to wallpaper the back of her closet and it turned out so cute. 

I did a big shopping haul at Ikea to get a book stand, doll house, and some other accessories. I just love Ikea, its my secret happy place ;-) I don't love putting ikea pieces together, but thankfully I have a really handy assistant for that. 

I also dropped off two AH-MAZING art pieces off at the framer, just in time for pick up before the photoshoot. I'll show you more of these at the final reveal, we have to keep some surprises, right?! 

I have some DIY projects I want to do this weekend if I have time, but we'll see!

One Room Challenge Week 3

Well, this week has been a slower week for the One Room Challenge as I went to High Point, North Carolina for 4 days. Every year, there is a furniture market twice a year in North Carolina and its a great place to for interior designers, showroom and store owners to see to-the-trade furniture in person. It was a whirlwind and I'm glad to be back!

Now back to the One Room Challenge... this is the original mood board I created for Heidi's Room for the One Room Challenge and so far I'm tracking to creating this unique space! 

This week I ordered Heidi's crib bedding, I picked a few different options, since I went with a more neutral wallpaper, I wanted to bring some florals in with the bedding and accessories. 

My trusted wallpaper installer is coming on Tuesday of next week and most of my orders will also arrive. Things are speeding up - its almost the end of this One Room Challenge!

One Room Challenge Week 2

The One Week Challenge is off to a quick start and I've already started ordering everything for Heidi's first room. This room is meant to be fun, whimsical, colorful in a relaxing yet playful way, and suit her spunky personality. 

I really wanted to add some color and life into her space with wallpaper... and after looking at, oh you know, 200 different wallpapers, I finally landed on gorgeous blush/taupe pattern from Rebecca Atwood for the feature wall. I think its a great color that suits the space now and that she can grow into later as well!

I have also been wanting to use this vintage turkish rug that my sister picked up for me in Turkey a few years back after some early morning / late night texting (Thanks Fiona!) This is technically a camel back rug... I love how it has some blush accents to pick up the wallpaper and other elements in her room. And of course Heidi will use her big brother's hand-me-down white Babyletto crib which is still in great shape.

Those are my starting points but I can't wait to show you some of the other accents and details coming together in next week's blog post!

One Room Challenge Week 1

I’ve been contemplating doing the One Room Challenge to get Heidi’s OWN room done in six weeks (finally now that she is close to 18 months )! I started ontime last week, but I've been dragging my feet getting back to blogging - so here we go!!! 

I thought it would be fun and motivating to design alongside a great group and community of designers. Follow along with me on instagram and right here on this little blog so you can see the progress!

The kid’s room is such a beautiful source of inspiration - it looks so cozy, chic, and inviting! Heidi’s room is not going to look anything like this - I’m going with a totally different color palette - but I love love love this room - the ceiling! This design is by @int2architecture .
