I can’t believe we are already into the Week 5 of the One Room Challenge! So much has happened this week, some good, some bad, and mostly above all else, I am moving forward! Because getting it all done is the name of the game with this six week challenge One Room Challenge!
After I finished lime washing the walls myself, it was time to get to work getting all the furniture back into the room so I could start styling. My husband stayed up late with me to help me get this done.
I was also super excited to get my mostly Minted art wall up across from the bed. This was such a boring wall before, so I had decided this was going to be a major moment with some artwork. I had been coveting the look of ART SHELVES for a while and was surprised that Minted offered these. Once I picked out 3 of the five foot white shelves, I got to work selecting some Minted pieces to sit along side some vintage artwork I wanted to showcase. I used all the thin black metal frames or the thin brass metal frames. I went with mostly black and white pieces with a hint of neutral and pieces which felt meaningful to me for this space. I cannot believe how fun it is to style these shelves and I love that I can switch things up so easily as my collection changes or grows.
I’m so happy with the way this turned out. I can’t wait to show you more, but for now, here is a sneak peak I revealed on my instagram stories earlier this week!
I also picked up a super cute pillow from my workroom. I used this stripe S.Harris fabric and had it offset in the center seam to create some interest. I’ll be sure to reveal this on my final reveal next week but I have to keep somethings a surprise - right?!
Unfortunately I had some major disappointment this week as well. I ordered an amazingly beautiful original art piece to sit over the dresser, which arrived in PIECES (thanks to the shipping company). The artist had loaned it to me while my personal piece was being finalized. So I’m generally just heartbroken for mostly for the artist, for the art, and the entire situation. I can’t even bring myself to properly write about it, but I promise to reveal more when I have time to put my thoughts into words. My photoshoot was rescheduled until Thursday so I have a day to figure out a replacement. Part of my job as an interior designer is to deal with issues that arise so I am sure we will find a solution. And after all, it wouldn’t be the One Room Challenge without the “Challenge” part, right? Getting a room designed, ordered, installed and ready for a photoshoot in less than six weeks is no joke.
Now I need to get to work styling my space. Follow along on my instagram stories if you’d like a behind the scenes look!
