Happy Saturday Ya'll! I am excited to announce that I am a guest participant in Better Homes & Gardens' One Room Challenge. I have been swooning over @thecozymodernhome, @paigekontrafouris and @peacockdahliainteriors week one ORC designs so after a bit of hesitation, I finally agreed to partake myself!
THREE YEARS IN THE MAKING
Almost 3 years ago my partner, Ryan, and I bought a run down, basically condemned foreclosed home and fully renovated the Cape Cod that had been vacant for almost 10 years. It took over a year between permits and construction, but that's a story for another blog post...
Upon moving in I started a mad dash to try
design each and every room. Since we renovated and designed this house from soup to nuts, on a budget, might I add, it was impossible to fully design the entire house. Little by little, layer by layer, I have been curating and designing each space.
One room that got shafted - partially designed, yet still lacking, was the master bedroom. Still in my "gray phase", I ran with it when it came to the headboard, and then put everything on pause, as I was pretty uninspired by the space. I moved onto the other rooms in the house and the rest is history.
GRASSCLOTH & A FAN ...WHO WILL STAY, WHO WILL GO?
My father and I wallpapered an accent wall with a peel & stick grasscloth paper before I really had a grip on the design direct I was going for. See, even interior designers jump the gun! I still do love this textured wallpaper, and the memory of my father and I haphazardly taking our first stab at paperhanging, so we will see if I can somehow work it into the new design.
Glass & Chrome Nightstand - no storage, not practical!
