It’s Week 5 of the One Room Challenge (ORC), which means I am officially in the home stretch…which in the design world could also be referred to as the “home stress”. So much of the magic of a room transformation comes down to the final details and last minute touches, and because of that my mind is going about a mile a minute thinking about all of the little things that I need to complete before next Thursday.
If you need to catch up to where we’ve been over the past few weeks, check out my ORC progress here:
If you’re not much of a reader, here’s the Cliff’s Notes version.
For my client’s home office space, we decided on a blend of Mid-century and Industrial styles that I planned to bring together like so:
As of last week, we were basically looking like this:
Well, my friends, the room [sadly] looks almost exactly the same this week. We had major scheduling conflicts with the original painter, so the walls are still unpainted. However, I am meeting with a new painter on Friday at 9am, so I am 100% confident that this will get done! Who knew it would be so hard to get a tiny office painted?!
What I did manage to do this week was to get the majority of the accessories ordered or rounded up. Here are a few sneak peeks of what I plan to use in the room:
I’m going for a mixed metal approach and incorporating lots of natural elements (greenery, various woods, geodes, etc.)
I was planning to do leather pillows but ended up really liking ivory faux fur. I think it works perfectly with the pinstripe of the couch, no?
All of the art I am using are my client’s personal pieces, so you’ll have to wait until next week to see what we choose!
To recap, here is what you will see next week: a fully furnished room, PAINT!, jazzed up closet doors, art, and all of these fun accessories (plus some others!) all nicely in place. What you will not see, unfortunately, is the Rake Chair from CB2 x Kravitz Design. It’s conveniently being delivered on Thursday, which is the day my final post will go live and two days after I’m having the room photographed. #FirstWorldProblems, I know, so I will not complain and just focus on fixing the problem.
We’re also sticking to the original window treatments because we want to do custom Roman shades and there is just not enough time to do them right at this point.
How close will the final design come to my original design plan? You’ll have to check back in next week and see the final reveal! As always, let me know what you think of my progress, and don’t forget to check in on the rest of the One Room Challenge participants and guests at Calling it Home!
