Can you believe that it’s already WEEK FOUR?! Time has really flown for this round of the One Room Challenge. I feel like I’m just now getting into the groove of things, and then I realize that I haven’t even booked my photographer yet. Yikes!
Let’s get right into it.
I made my decision on window treatments after a visit to The Shade Store in Georgetown (more on that visit later!) I’m going to keep it light and bright, with a combination of textures that will make the room feel upscale and casual at the same time. I can’t wait to see what they look like!
I have one big feature window that really consists of three windows, so choosing options was quite difficult. I drew up a quick sketch for my own measurements, but you can see how they’re broken up here. I plan to put woven wood shades mounted inside of all three windows, and some luxe velvet triple pinch-pleat curtains mounted on the outside.
I also measured and taped off spaces for my Metrie wall molding. This took a bit of math, as the floors and ceiling are not completely parallel, and there were some outlets I had to work around (oh, the joys of an old building).
I can’t wait to rip those plantation shutters off of the windows.
If you follow me on Instagram, you saw that I started painting as well. I went with “Railings” by Farrow & Ball as my accent color to tie in the living room that I made over last round. I just love this deep charcoal/ navy/ black color!
The fun thing about adding this Metrie door in my last ORC is that now I get to paint the backside (in the bedroom) black. It’s like getting two looks in one!
But the biggest and most fun element in the room is going to be the “dipped” walls. I wanted to do something different, so I did some math and created a horizontal line that extends around the room, and painted everything below it black. I’m adding wall molding in large rectangles, and the bottom 2/3 will be painted black, and the top 1/3 will be painted white. It makes the room feel like it was dipped in paint, and it hits just above the new headboard and brings in the dark trim- it’s different and hasn’t been done that often, so of course I had to do it. I cannot wait to show you the final results!
I also decided on art for above the bed- “The Hunt” by Ashley Woodson Bailey, via Citizen Atelier. It’s being custom framed by Framebridge in a slim black frame, and poster mounted so there will be no mat or trim- just black, black, black.
I also realized that it would probably be best if we keep our current “bed frame on risers for extra storage” thing we have going on, so I ordered a new headboard. I love the contrast welting and it will be the perfect addition to the dark space.
I’m also contemplating this dresser from Bellacor- I have had the hardest time finding a dresser that fits the bill for this space! I’m in love with this option, though, and they have so many options to choose from:
SO THAT’S IT SO FAR!
