And here we are in week five of the One Room Challenge–the home stretch! If you’re just joining us, welcome, and be sure to start here to follow the progress from day one. The bedroom is scheduled to be photographed on Monday, which leaves me with just four days to check the last items off my list and get this space photoshoot ready!
The majority of the pieces were delivered this weekend: artwork was hung, table lamps placed, headboard (take a peek!) and swing arm sconces with custom shades were delivered and are awaiting installation. Now it’s time to focus on the last layer: the details.
Accessories finish off a space by adding personality. Art, interesting objects, family photographs, and collections make a house feel like a home. I love to hunt for vintage pieces for projects that feel like the clients and layer them in with items they already own. It’s all about the mix. I collect things over the duration of a project and on installation day everything is styled–my favorite part!
For the bedroom, my clients appreciate a clean, relaxing space, so we’ll be keeping the clutter to a minimum. Photoshoots are a bit like life through rose colored glasses–you know, the version where you iron your sheets and laundry is out of sight–so I’ll be bringing in a few items to zhush things up. My inspiration is above.
Here’s what’s left on the to-do list before Monday’s shoot:
- Mount Headboard
- Install Swing Arm Sconces
- Deliver Grasscloth Nightstands
- Source Mirror for Above White Dresser
- Source Floor Lamp for Corner
- Hang Floor Mirror
- Hang Photos
A think it’s a completely manageable list (famous last words, I’m sure!)
I’ll be sharing more behind-the-scenes peeks in the next few days so be sure to follow along on Instagram. I’m SO excited to see what the talented ladies below have up their sleeves for the big reveal next week and can’t wait to share the before and afters of my own space–we’re so close!
JUMP TO WEEK SIX: THE REVEAL!
