The One Room Challenge, Week Three

An honest look into why this might be the first one room challenge I can't complete on time

Well it’s officially the half way point of the ORC and today I’ve got nothing for you.  Not a photograph, not a product to share, not a piece of fabric, nada.  To say I’m behind the eight ball would be an understatement.

Now, this is the fifth One Room Challenge I’ve participated in, and I’m always a tad behind.  But this is the first time I’m actually fearful of not being able to pull the ORC off.  I’ve completely lost the past 7 days because of a sinus infection and emergency dental surgery, which by the way is not yet resolved with a second surgery scheduled for next week.  And in looking at the calendar I just realized I’m out of town for my besties wedding the week before the big reveal which is when I always have my ORC space’s photographed. So in reality instead of three more weeks to complete the space I actually only have two. Picture me hyperventilating as I type this. 

With this even tighter time crunch the two most concerning areas are fabric choices and the sectional.  I just picked out fabric today and I needed it to arrive like yesterday.  Prayers that the fabric gets here lightning fast and the upholster can work some speedy magic.   As far as the sectional of choice goes, last week I talked in depth about how hard sectionals are to come by and if this one doesn’t work then I’m not sure what I’ll do. 

Oh, and just for one more twist I decided to nix the grass cloth.  As much as I LOVE grass cloth we’re planning on putting the house up for sale next year so I thought it best not to wallpaper this room since so much of my home is already wallpapered.  Which means I need to paint the entire living room and ceiling in Farrow and Ball’s All White; so that will be fun.   

Yep, that’s what I got.  And since I don’t have any photographic evidence of me sitting in a panic I thought I’d share a few while living room inspiration pics.  As mentioned previously, the goal is to transform this room into a neutral, calming space.  Hopefully.  Which surprisingly, when you search for neutral, or white living room inspiration it’s actually tougher to find than you may think.  So many all white rooms are too modern, too romantic, too beachy, or too shabby chic.  I’m going for more of a California cool vibe…not boho, more California traditional.  Is that a thing? Ha!

Hope my other co-participants are a bit farther along then I am! Truly, MKR
