Hey, everyone! Welcome to Week 6 (aka “The End”) of the One Room Challenge™, hosted by Linda of Calling It Home. The twenty featured designers have already shared their spaces, and holy guacamole, there are some amazing rooms to see! I had to tear myself away from my computer and hide my phone to ensure this post got written, because it’s like an interior design vortex over at Linda’s. Consider yourself warned.
Now you get to see what all of the guest participants were able to accomplish in just 6 short weeks. I’m going on record as saying I totally surprised myself by getting this room finished. (Proof that I clearly work better on a deadline.) Friends and readers, feel free to email me arbitrary deadlines when you want to see a room get finished.
Paige picked out her curtain fabric from the two choices I provided, and the design plan fell into place from there. We were going for a Victorian-Boho bedroom. (Yes, I just made that up.) And now for the after!
I know this isn’t my room, but what girl (or middle-aged woman) wouldn’t want a dreamy gold bed with ruffled linens? Is it weird that I stand around in the room sighing? I didn’t think so.
A little custom goes a long way. I had one lumbar pillow made with the leftover drapery fabric to give the room a more custom look. Everything else was purchased from nationwide chain retailers. #nottothetrade #iwish
It was really important that I incorporate my late grandmother’s lamps into the room. They cleaned up beautifully and still work, but I’m rewiring them because I don’t want to electrocute my child or burn the house down.
I wanted to add a little black to the room to keep things from looking too sweet. The vase is a dollar store glass bowl from my pantry that I spray painted. (Proving that I can be both resourceful and crafty under duress.)
World Market totally saved me and this room. The chair couldn’t be more perfect, and it’s a good thing Paige and I don’t have the same initials or I’d totally steal her new pillow.
Here’s the sweet girl who inspired this makeover. As much as I love this room, I love her about a million times more.
Thanks so much for hanging in there with me for my second One Room Challenge™! (You can see my first one here.) It’s a real treat to be part of such a supportive design and blogging community, and much thanks to Linda for dreaming up this event. An even bigger thanks to my silent blogging partner and husband, Michael. This room would still be a “before” were it not for his help.
You can keep up with my latest projects on both Facebook and Instagram. I’ve been working on my other daughter’s room for approximately 6 months (not weeks) and I’m finally ready to share the finished product next week. (Cue the collective groan from the regulars here. No, really–next week. Pinkie promise!) Thanks so much for stopping by, and go check out the other amazing rooms!
