Let me first say how excited I am to be a Guest Participant for Calling it Home's One Room Challenge! Who doesn't love a good before and after; and this is the mother of before and after reveals! Each time I'm amazed at the One Room Challenge transformations and I am so thrilled to be participating this fall! Check back here over the next six weeks and be sure to check out the other fabulous rooms over at Calling it Home!
So let's get down to brass tacks, and by brass tacks I mean nailheads and all the other fabulous details we have planned for this room! I'll be working with some of my absolute favorite clients! This is the final room left in the house, and I'm thinking we saved the best for last!
Here are some current shots of the room...
As you can see, the room is pretty neutral and dark right now. Although I like a cozy bedroom probably more than anyone, we want this room to feel inviting and restful, not cave-like. The solution all started with this gorgeous tufted linen sofa from Anthropologie. (Do I have extreme anxiety that this made-to-order sofa won't come in on time? Totally.) We wanted the room to have classic elements such as tufting, nailheads, ginger jars (my personal favorite), and art... lots of art. We also wanted the room to feel collected and interesting. The husband’s only requirement was a good laundry basket that he can leave out in the room without it being relegated to the closet. For the record, I have never included a laundry basket on a mood board, but we really wanted this to be a marriage of his and her styles. We have some fun repurposing and DIYs planned for the One Room Challenge including a fun shaped headboard, reworked draperies, a gallery wall, and a bookshelf makeover! We hope the result is a retreat that feels like a romantic hideaway!
Thanks so much for checking out our design progress! Don't forget to take a look at the other rooms on the Calling it Home site and a special thanks to Linda of Calling it Home and House Beautiful for hosting! Check back next week as we talk textiles!
