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!

oh my goodness, it's already week 5 of the One Room Challenge with Linda of blog Calling It Home. i've had a hard time keeping up with my blog posts the past two weeks, so i'm super sorry for the lack of progress info. i've been sharing images on my instagram when i think of it and i'm so close to being finished!
so far, all of my furniture is in place, the panels are installed, the bedding should arrive any day, and i decided on our lamps. i still need to finish accessorizing for the shoot, which is happening next week! and one small thing, the room still needs to be painted! nothing like doing things in reverse, am i right?
i'm so in love with these vintage lamps and the panels are to die for! Linda graciously extended the ORC by one week, for those affected by all the natural disasters recently, and even though i don't fall into that category i'm thankful for the extra time. next week i plan to share details on the closets, as i'm frantically getting them organized as we speak!
head over to Calling It Home to check out the other guest participants and see what they're up to at week 5. we could all use support to finish strong!
