Week #3 of the One Room Challenge has arrived! But, where did this past week even go?! Someone please tell me. It’s been one heck of a week over here as I just finished wrapping up my #projectnursery with Sweet Kyla (pictures will be making an appearance on the blog verrrry soon but you can check out my Instagram for sneaks!) and now I can dive back into the ORC to get cracking on things. We’re halfway to the finish line and let me tell you, we’ve still got loads to do to create our dreamy master bedroom!
Last week, we shared the current state of our master bedroom (you can admit it, it’s an ugly duckling right? An ugly duckling with lots of potential!):
This week, we’re sharing some of our inspiration for the room as well as a master bedroom concept board for the vision. Here are two photos I fell in love with and will work to guide and inspire the interior design:
My first instinct for our bedroom was to go full on moody with darker rich hues, but after finding these pictures, I think I’m going to turn down the moody and opt for something a bit lighter, laid back but ultra cozy. I also love a good trad/modern aesthetic mixed with a little splash of boho/global influence to satisfy the little traveller in me. Plus, I’m a colour lover, so I simply have to work that in too 🙂
With all that in mind, here’s the design concept board I’ve created to guide my vision for our master bedroom:
As I mentioned last week, I’m looking at the piece of art we currently have in the room as our jumping off point with the idea for this room being to pull the colours from a gorgeous sunrise and sunset – blues, oranges, grays and purples. Can’t wait to start pulling this room together to show you!
Some things I’ve managed to do this week are: 1) ordered the headboard from Wayfair.ca that is pretty modern and neutral in a light grey. I wanted something timeless and simple that I could switch up down the road if we decide to change things in the bedroom (this will surely be years down the road after this makeover), 2) scored a gorgeous white and grey stitched quilt from West Elm that I’m working into the bedding mix and I even managed to drop off the vintage armchair I found to get reupholstered. Slowly knocking things off the ol’ long list!!
As I did for our previous One Room Challenge last spring (see our guest bathroom here), I turned to Tonic Living to source the perfect fabric for the armchair. Here’s the lineup of gorgeous fabric I debated over long and hard over. Which do you think will make the cut?
Here are the rest of my to-do’s. Watch them keep disappearing as the weeks go on:
- Order area rug
- Decide on window treatments
- Decide what to do with night tables – keep them or paint them?
- Hunt for white ceiling fan (something both functional and pretty otherwise…. bye bye fan and I’ll be on the hunt for another option)
- Paint room and trim
- Reaplce baseboard trim with something thicker
- Hunt for table lamps or lighting
- Decide on artwork – family photos, paintings, DIY, etc?
- Shop for accent pillows and accessories
- Replace night table and closet hardware
- Can I squeeze in a mirror somewhere in the room?
Next week I’m going to chat about choosing paint colours and the components of putting together a great bed. I’m hoping to also have a sneak peak of my armchair. It’s likely been stripped back to it’s guts by now, but hoping to catch a peak at the interior structure to show you. But more on that next week 🙂
Don’t forget to go check out what the 20 featured designers and other fellow participants are up to this week. Big shout out to Linda at Calling It Home for organizing the ORC and thank you to everyone for following along!
Have a great week everyone! XO,
