I am excited to participate in my very first One Room Challenge. I’m joining in as a guest participant created by Calling it Home with many other talented bloggers. It’s a 6-week challenge of posting the progress of my makeover of one room in my house.
My home is only 1-year-old. My husband and I moved into it last May of 2015. So this is a perfect way to finish decorating some rooms in my home and motivate me to finish the guest bedroom! It’s a bedroom that my daughters stay when they come to visit, so my goal is to make it warm and inviting for them.
Here are the main furniture pieces for the guest bedroom:
I decided to start with a blank canvas, and I took out all the furniture and kept some of the pieces such as the bed and my vintage doors. I will be adding some of my pieces from the projects that I created. Since the home is just a year old, the paint on the walls is in pristine condition.
The studded fabric headboard, picture in the collage above, will be placed at the center of the wall, followed by two vintage doors that I transformed into lighting fixtures. (Note: a how-to for these door/lighting fixtures will follow in weeks to come)
My refurbished dresser will be positioned on the wall between the two doors with a grand mirror!
My favorite braided rug from Pottery Barn will be placed in front of the bed. Facing a wall a series of colorful artwork.
Above is some inspiration for what I envision for the artwork for my own transformation. It’s amazing what color can do to a room! (House of Turquoise)
Here’s my upcoming plan of action to achieve this look:
- I envision this room to have a mix of textures & color so it’s not bland.
- I’ll be searching for colorful fabrics. I have some surprise sponsors that I will be collaborating in helping me bring the room together.
- The colors of the wall are white so the next few weeks will be looking for framed art or photos.
Love to know what you think! My biggest perceived challenges will be how to keep it everything in a budget ($500) and making sure all my furniture will fit. My goal is to have a relaxing guest bedroom with an eclectic feel.
