Today's the day I get to share my big plan for the One Room Challenge. This is my second run in this trademarked, online makeover event created by the fabulous Linda of Calling it Home (you can see the ORC project I completed last Spring here). I'm once again linking in to participate for 6 straight weeks of makeover madness with all my design minded blog buddies. The objective this time - bring modern sophistication to our still unfinished master bedroom. Last week I shared a before look at the room as it has sat for most of the 4 years we've lived at Holtwood House. Today, I'm laying out my game plan to take the room full circle and create the master retreat of our dreams.
I've long been captivated by all of the elements I'm sharing with you today. So it feels extra good to show you how I'm going to make them all work together. Paint colors have already been selected, some of the textiles and furniture have already been purchased and I'm well on my way to bringing my vision to life. The final outcome will see a mix of dark and light walls, interest and dimension on the walls where some is sorely needed and texture - lots and lots of texture.
There will be a statement or two in the room - one up high and one down below. Do you recognize that chair? I couldn't help myself... I was haunted by it after leaving it behind at Sunday's flea. It was in the stars and let's just say... we found our way back to each other. I've already gussied it up with leather polish and some Danish Oil and it currently sits in our living room, waiting to take its place in our finished bedroom. Pinch me!
As I'm working my way through this overhaul, I'm taking inspiration from spaces like these, infused with a mix of light and dark, clean lines and texture. These are some of my favorite bedroom designs (ever) and they are guiding me in creating a similar design vibe in my own bedroom.
Revisiting the original wish list I shared with you last week, my plan is to create some visual interest with architectural trim work, update the room's color palette from blue/gray to my signature black + white and upgrade some of the hand-me down furniture with new finds (like the flea market chair!). You'll also see me layer in texture through leather, burl and faux fur details as my plan comes to fruition in the coming weeks.
I'm promising to reveal at least one major change in next Thursday's update. So be sure to check back! Until then, be sure to follow along on Instagram for a sneak peak behind the scenes.
...and make sure you check out all the amazing makeovers in progress over at Calling it Home.
