The One Room Challenge Week Four

More Than Half Way Through and things are finally beginning to come together
Filed Under > Ideas & Inspiration

 

 

If you read last week’s ORC update then you’d know that I’m probably not going to finish on time.  Or so I thought.  For the first time in the history of One Room Challenges’ we got an extension.  That’s right, instead of six weeks to complete our spaces we now have seven.  Praise Jesus, hallelujah!!

Why the extension? Basically because of life.  With all of the natural disasters and craziness currently happening shipments have been delayed, or canceled all together, so it just made sense.  Which means we’re stuck together for another week so let’s get down to business shall we.

For me, things are finally beginning to move along.  Tomorrow painting will begin.  While I originally planned to hang grasscloth wallpaper I decided to instead keep things nice, light and bright with Farrow and Ball’s All White paint.  It’s one of the paint colors I used in my Shoppe, so I know it’s the perfect shade of white.  And yes, there are shades of white.

My gorgeous rug from Karastan arrived and will be laid down later this week. My Bunny Williams lamps and shades from The Mine are en route. And the most show stopping bowl from Jill Rosenwald is being fired as I type.  

I mentioned last week I’m getting custom draperies made as well as recovering benches in the most yummy of Stroheim fabrics.  Here’s where a major mistake on my end comes in.  I of course was in a rush and didn’t read through what the fabric categories were, focusing instead only on the pattern.  So when they arrived and I saw that one design was sheer I knew I was in trouble. 

Don’t get me wrong, the sheer Kefalonia fabric was drop dead gorgeous, it just wasn’t right for the room.  I hemmed and hawed trying to figure out what I was going to do when I finally reached out to Stroheim and explained the mistake.  To my surprise and delight, Stroheim jumped in and fixed my problem switching out the sheer Kefalonia for Palapye Jute which will work better in the space.  Talk about customer service.  I’ve always been a huge fan of Stroheim, but how they helped me in this situation that was clearly my fault made me a loyal life long customer. 

So what’s left? I still don’t have my sectional or coffee table situation quite figured out. Yes I know those are MAJOR pieces.  And, I’ve still got to decide on the art.  I previously had a giant Gray Malin hanging, which I adore, but it won’t go with the room.  I’m swooning over Atlanta based artist Kristen Giorgi from NG Collective. And I also have dozens of other gorgeous pieces of art I’ve collected I may move around.  It all depends on timing, right?!  Truly, MKR
