so...usually week six is the reveal week during the One Room Challenge with Linda of blog Calling It Home. this time around, she has given everyone an extra week to finish up due to those participants affected by recent natural disasters. i'm happy to report, my room is ready for its close up and the green walls are a thing of the past! i'm dying to give you a little sneak peek, but you'll have to wait until the end of this post.
first, let's talk paint. i really struggled with what color to paint my walls. because of my wallpaper, i was worried the room would become too dark if the walls were painted a dark color. i decided to pull the lighter shade from my panel fabric and chose Benjamin Moore 'chelsea gray.' i LOVE the color, it's warm and enveloping. i also wanted to paint the ceiling, so i chose Benjamin Moore 'bashful.' you really have to look at the ceiling to tell it's a different color, but during the day you get this perfect blush of color.
the closets are coming along as well. there just needs to be a little more styling, and editing if i'm being honest, so i'm spending the weekend pulling things to donate and making room for new goodies i'll actually wear.
i can't explain how excited i am to share this room with you all next week! this bedroom is one of my new favorite spaces and it's nice to have a place for mark and i to retreat to that's so 'grown up' and stylish!
head over to Calling It Home to check out the other guest participants along with the twenty featured designers. there are so many good rooms, i can't even stand it!!!
